I'm able to get the bubble within the glass so it is level, I was just told by the mechanic that halfway is ok, the reason I asked is what do people do when they have to stay overnight in a parking lot (Walmart) and can't put down the levelers. Alot of those parking lots are less level than I am able to get it in my driveway, with the levelers. I had a Dometic fridge in a Lance camper we used to have that lasted the 20 years we had it before selling it, I wonder if it still works now.

There is danger in lifting the front wheels (Both of them) off the ground in that a gust of wind such as I had here last week will turn your jacks into 600 dollars EACH pretzles. (That does not count installing the new ones)

However,, Personal opinion

If you got to park it in the driveway. BACK IN so you can make a faster get-a-way.

Home is where I park it!

I don't think refer being off and not level is a problem. I like my coach a little off level when storing to keep water from puddling. I don't recommend lifting tires off the ground. They have no lateral strength and I just bent one of mine when fulling deploying one jack vs having the other three barely extended. I initially didn't realize that I had one tire off the ground and when I went to retract it bent due to the lateral force (leaning) as it dropped.
