Are you a member of FMCA or Good Sam Club?. Both ot these organizations have either committees and/or materials that address RV parking restrictions. If there are 45 people who oppose the ordinance, work the system; use the city government legislative process to appeal the original ruling. FMCA and Good Sam have model proposals for RV parking regulations. They can probably show how many other cities use these, so you can use this in your appeal. I think their basic requirement is that the RV can not project beyond the front plane of the house.

Also, search this forum for other posts regarding RV parking restrictions.

I don't believe this post went from a complicated way of moving an RV to park to Loosing parking rights! Brought back bad memories of our subdivision of 60 houses fighting us and giving in as the fight was getting to costly and un-neighborly...... Good Luck!

a bad day camping is still better than a good day working.

First, I agree with everyone trying to find a way to keep your current spot.

Second, I think I'd adapt a tire skate:
TireSkates for moving that car, truck or boat around by hand.
to work on the jacks, not the tires. Put the jacks down on to the skates, push the motorhome (winch it with a cable attached to a skate?), and then jacks come up.

I'd question whether the jacks are torsionally stiff enough for lateral pushing of the motorhome itself. And, engine running would have the power steering on so that there isn't as much effort to twist the front tires...but a thin teflon square under the front tires would keep them from gripping the asphalt, it's like portable plastic ice when wet.
