I carried two bags of those plastic pads for such emergencies.
Walmart Mobile
You put a few together and place them under the uneven low side. It will get you level enough to put the slides out.

Does anybody see a problem with this?

Where would I put the blocks at? The jack for that side is gone, do I put them under the tires?

Is there a real problem if the ground is somewhat level to put the sides out?

Well we are at Camping World in Robertsdale Al. , my jack has to have the motor rebuilt at the factory, the parts will not be back to the repair service until 3 weeks. Now this has put a giant monkey wrench into our plan of a two month east coast trip. We have firm plans to meet our daughter in DC in 12 days, so I guess we will go up there and after a few days head back down here to get the jack fixed. It's always something.

I would buy two bags of leveling blocks that was discussed here and go and enjoy yourself. I used them for a few months when I had a jack issue.

How do you use them? Put down the other jacks and put the blocks , where?

You determine the low sides or corners, put them in front of the appropriate wheels and simply drive up on them.

It's how the rest of us without fancy jacks for leveling do it every time!

Don't rely on that 3 week 'estimate' unless you are entirely confident with the repair facility. Too many people have been made empty promises on repair times.
Go and enjoy your trip. Call them at least every week and after 3 weeks, every day.
When they tell you they have the jack back from repair, then schedule the repair date when you return.

I agree , I will get the exact time before coming back down to get the jack.

On leveling on blocks, I guess with auto jack iam spoiled. I guess you just use blocks? Not us the working jacks at all?

Level the coach with the blocks and then use the 3 jacks that work manually. 3 down is better than none to help with movement in the coach while parked.
