Put boards under the tires that will be off the ground. I never lift my tires off the ground unless it's only going to be for a moment.

Im not sure if all leveling systems operate like mine but I can't control each jack individually. Its either both fronts..both rears...or each left or right side. Seems like it puts a bit of a damper on the situation. I even pulled out the manuals to make sure I wasn't missing something....are they all like this?

My manual says no wheels should be off the ground when using the jacks.

Wheels of the ground is not a good idea as other posters have said. You run the risk of twisting your coach, and the jacks are not designed to support the entire weight of your coach. I put up with unlevel camp sites for a number of years, running the coach up on a few blocks is one thing, but any more if the camp ground can't find me a reasonably level site I will spend my camping dollars some where else. Buts thats just me.

Yes, that's the way they should be.

I've found the automatic jacking tends to put things a little high.
I dump all the air first.
Hit the front jack until it raises an inch or 2.
Hit rear to level f/r
Hit side to level.
Hit "uphill side jack" to make sure it's still on the ground.

We won't talk about my feelings on a big box on sticks "rolling" anywhere.

I managed to get things level with all 4 corners still on the ground. I am new to the leveling jacks. Our other MH didn't have them. I thought the auto leveling feature was just that but not the case. Thanks for all of the help and recommendations.
