Auto leveling

Is it bad to park and auto level but have one rear tire off the ground? I know having both off is a bad thing.

I believe it is never a good idea to have any of the wheels off the ground, especially the rear wheels. I always carry a supply of boards to put under the wheels if the area is that out of level. Raise up the rear a bit and put some boards under that set of wheels, then re-level. I think you may also find it feels more stable if all four wheels remain in contact with the surface.

We have camped with both front wheels off the ground or one back set off but never with both rears sets off & always for a few days only & never had a problem.

I am generally the first to shout that a box on sticks ain't rolling anywhere...

Level in manual, after dumping all your air. You can do WAY better than the machine can. You will level much lower, and the odds of lifting any tires are then pretty slim.

I know that on my coach, (2005 Winnebago Adventurer with Workhorse chasis) and probably most coaches, only the rear tires have the parking brake, so on a slope, when possible, park so that he front tires are off the ground. I also carry wheel chocks to chock the front tires if the rear tire(s) go off the ground. I agree it also good to put planks under the rear tires then relevel. Got the wheel chocks at Wally World but Amazon prolly has them too, they have every thing else RV related there as well.
