I installed one of those drain plugs that all you have to do is flip the lever to drain it.
I don't have to use a wrench like before and don't worry about dropping the plug.
Just a thought.
Might I suggest the use of two Jack stands just in case?

I belong to the Enough clearance" crowd. In fact on those occasions where I have watched them change the oil, Even the pro's did not lift it, just slid under on a crawler.

Only once has it been "Lifted" sort of.. When it tossed half the serp belt (yes half) I drove it over the top of a "Grease pit" so the workers could change it more easily.. and they did too. Of course in that position they did not "lift" the motor home.....they lowered the floor.
