level rv

Hello-- Our Salem 395ret is parked on a seasonal lot. Over the course of the summer one side sank about an inch side to side. My question is-- Should I level it now or just wait until spring and then level it? I wondered if it leaning just that little bit would put more weight on that side and sink more than if it was level. It is sitting on cement block columns and the tires.

Maybe the slope you mention will help with snow and melting?

If there are no slides out, it should be okay.

If you are staying in the RV, if you are running an evaporation fridge, or if you have slides that you want to put out, level it. Otherwise, I wouldn’t worry.

Leveling it will not put more weight on the side and cause it to sink more. Personally, I'd level it.

Are the tires in direct contact with the ground or are they sitting on a 2 x 10 x 6ft or so long like you should do on blacktop? The leveling wont matter as others said. You do want to spread the weight over the area of your board. Do the arithmetic!
