Like MisterT I would like to hear of an actual bad experience and the circumstances surrounding it.
As far as things being stressed when the wheels are off the ground, where is the proof? If a tire and rim is being removed from the coach for repairs is anything being stressed? Do you think the designers of these vehicles have not designed the equipment to handle these situations? If you were the designer would you have omitted including these situations in the design?
Just saying.
I witnessed an issue while leveling, a coach pulled in at the next site from me that was off level substantially both side to side and front to back. The driver pulled in, set the brake which is on the drive shaft on the f53 ford, he started the auto jack program and the front of the coach lifted first, the differential allowed the rear wheels to turn and pivot the coach toward the downhill side and bend the front jack mounts. That's the reason the instructions tell you to block front and back of the rear wheels.

Recently parked at RV park. Ground was not level and entrance door was rather high. It is a two level step. Distance from bottom step to the ground was excessive. My 5ft tall wife lost her balance making that last step. Fell and broke her right wrist. Full recovery will likely take years. Just saying. Y'all be careful jacking those wheels up!

We bought the Camco step with telescoping and folding legs for that reason. We chose that brand because being aluminum color we can easily see it at night, and it has a higher range than the competitor.
