Hydraulic Levelers

I am new to RV'ing. We bought a 2002 Damon with 2 slides. It has Hydraulic levelers. Our driveway has a slant to it. I put a 4 1/2 block under the front levelers and then raised the motorhome. In order to have it level. The front tires are about 3" off the ground. The hydraulic lifts are not all the way extended but pretty close. Is this ok to have it this high up and keep it this way between uses? We could go several weeks with out moving the motorhome.

Thanks for your help

Wheels off the ground is not a good idea. If you have to have it level I would try using blocks.

Hi Skwillow,
Welcome to iRV2. It all depends on how long the coach will be with the front wheels off the ground. If it is for a couple of days (loading and unloading), for me, it is not a problem. If you are going to leave it this way for an extended period of time, consider finding a way to keep some weight on the tires. Never let the rear wheels leave the ground. At the Tampa RV Super Show (January 2015) Spartan, Freightliner and Ford said the same thing.
