Can I raise my coach ?

I have to park my coach in a temp lot tonight because they are working on my street. The temp lot is very steep to get into. I tried backing into the lot and the bottom of the front bumper starts to drag on the ground before I get in the lot. I just need a few inches I think. Can I fill the air bags in the front and keep it high to get in the lot somehow ? I have both hyd and an air level system on the coach. Here is a picture of the control for the level if that helps with the answer I am looking for

Thank

We have the HWH air system and it will raise the coach about 4" from normal ride height . I don't think yours will as I don't see the raise button on your panel.

You can do that but someone will have to hold the "up" button on the control panel while you move the coach.

Make sure you go slow, not more than 5MPH

I think his "raise" button is one of the pair on the far left side, just a bit below vertical center, of the HWH panel. The other one is "dump" or "lower".

I have a slightly steep driveway to my RV barn and I can get the front up without scrapping, but right before I would drag the back end, I stop, put it in neutral, set the break, lower the front bags and then raise the rear bags to the max!

I do this as well, it works as long as you only need a few inches of lift.

My panel looks just like the picture from the OP.
