How NOT to level your rig?

I was driving around West Virginia for my job and I came across this RV parked in a yard. I'm not sure what the owner was trying to do, he was not around to ask, but I don't think this is the safest way to level a rig up. The post about how you level your rig in your driveway reminded me I had the photo.

The RV does not look level from the photo. Looks like owner had it jacked up for whatever reason. Don't think I would get under there....

I'm sure there is a perfectly good explanation. However I doubt it will make sense.

I would think there is some service work going on, diff, generator, etc. It appears only the drivers rear wheel is up on blocks and the front can't be determined if it's chocked.

Not to many of us, but probably makes perfect sense to a West Virginian!

Since there are no level yards or driveways in West Virginia, I guess you gotta do what you gotta do.

Maybe he used all his cinder blocks under his house and the wood blocks are all he had left to try and level the RV. I'm just sayin. LOL

Maybe it's just hiking a leg to whiz on the leaning tree.

But even if they did divorce, they'd still be cousins...... or is that Arkansas.

I've got a great friend from West Virginia, who is named McCoy, and is a distant part of that clan. He lives in MS now. I give him fits all the time with WV jokes...and he tears me up on cajun ones.

I would guess the right side rear outer wheel is being replaced - looks like it is just clear of the ground.
I would love to know how it got up there!

I think that would be a sizable portion of Pennsyl-tucky.
Divorce can make for really uncomfortable family re-unions.
