I will say that i have gone against this warning to change tires. On the other hand, i won't do it to keep the coach level for any length of time. I have cut 2"x10" blocks to put under the tires to help with campsites that are a bit too unlevel for the jacks themselves. If it takes more than 3 blocks, then i'm gonna move or the coach will stay a bit unlevel. The front wheels won't be dangling...
