When we were disconnecting from the truck, we noticed our rig was unlevel . One side was lower than the other. We placed 2 1bys under on front leg of the landing gear and that worked, but is it better to place a board under wheels instead? Will the way we did it cause a problem? Need some input....thanks
I use the same leveling block as above for both the same reasons. First level side to side with the block under the tires then level front to back.< id="gwProxy" ="">< ="jsCall;" id="jsProxy" =""><div id="ref">

Checking the level indicatorsI have on the pin box is the first thing I do when pulling into a space. ThenI add boards to the wheels if needed and then level frontto rear with the landing gear legs. I have noticed if the landing gear aren't done correctly (one leg hits before the other) then my main entrance door will drag when closing. That just tells me I have a twisted/torqued frame.
Ok, we've only hadthis fifth wheel fora few weeks now and some things we learned by experience...when we got it home for the first time and parked it on the driveway the entrance door was sticking...tried everything that didn't work untill the next day when I checked the side to side level in the rear of the camper(and my wife was saying the whole time itmust beunlevel, but the front bubble was perfect so what did she know) with my 2ft level and guess what...raising therear jack leveled the camper and fixed the door stick...we need to add a rear bubble...lol
I opt for the pressur treated 2X6's. They're cheap - often left over from a new deck, gazeebo, etc., and they're easy to transport. Trying to level your rig from side to side with the front jacks will twist the frame which could result in doors, drawers, and slides no working properly. I doubt ithat it would cause serious damage to the doors and drawers, but can't surmise the same for the slides.
After you've been at it for a while levelling your trailer will become second nature, and you'll seldom have to reposition it.
