My drive slopes front to back and I did it. Once you have one side done you need a jack to push the other side into position.

Same here. I did it in front of my shop with the wheels on blocks six inches off the ground to make it easier to get my fat belly under there to work. My drive is fairly level side to side, but even so I had to use a jack to move the last side in place.

You want the work area as level side to side as you can get it. Front to back isn't important.

Since no RV sits exactly level, you may need a push on one side of the bar, or the other, to align the last bolt.

When you do the modification, don't tighten anything until all the bolts/nuts are started. You may need to jack up the axle on one side to get a bolt started.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

".....level to do..." Level to do what? We here in Lake Havasu see motorhomes parked all the time severely unlevel. Apparently it's just fine. It all depends on what you're doing with it at the time. If you want to prep it for a trip, you better level it for the fridge's sake at least. If you plan on working on something, well, I prefer level as opposed to walking up and down hill a zillion times while doing the work.

A level coach, also keeps all the fluids level too. Things like engine oil, trans oil etc. that are needed upon startup. There's other items too that may or may not be affected by unlevel parking. It's a choice thing.

Maybe my browser is not showing something, level to do WHAT? Even funnier, several people have responded. Is there a photo I'm not getting?

I could have sworn that the subject line was "CHF" when I answered. At any rate, it seemed perfectly clear at the time

Sorry guys I made the edit as CHF was not descriptive enough.
