it is a good slope- but he could have dropped the suspension and still did not need drive wheels off the ground

From the photos we can’t see the front end or identify the coach to determine if it has air ride.

The sewer hose look like its under the tires.
I would keep that clear, in case it creaps down.

Unhappy

I had to lift the front wheels quite a bit at a campground in Death Valley. Crappy spot but I had to get level. It happens.

Front wheels - OK.... Rear wheels - NEVER!!!! Make the parking brake totally ineffective resulting in NOTHING actually holding the coach in position....

I’ve seen coaches with their front wheels over 1 foot off the ground (especially those that have a single leveler up front)

That can’t be good for soooo many reasons.....
