Find a parking lot that is large and has a nice level area.

Drive around the block a couple of times and enter the parking lot with as little rock and rolling as possible. Slow right down as you approach the level section and try to stop without using the brakes - or at least the minimum amount possible.

Leave the engine running, transmission in neutral

If possible have someone chock one wheel rather than use the parking brake. Get out of the MH as quickly as reasonable so you aren't rocking it from side to side.

Measure the ride height and adjust as required.

Repeat the procedure.

Sounds a lot of messing around but can be useful. The height control valves are heavily damped and will have some friction and hysteresis so you need to drive around a bit until it settles down.
Of course it isn't essential but...
awesome... thanks tony
