Everything that Paramedic said. I cut open large garbage bags to lay on.

I have a small incline on my circle driveway. If I stop just as the drive axle reaches the peak, the back end is about 12" higher than normal. Then I put the hydraulic jacks down and raise to their limit. Easy access from the back for the engine and tranny.

I can get anything I need with the airbags dumped. So I don't worry about jacks, keys, blocking etc. I set the parking brake and slide under.

But then again I'm only 6'3" @ 235lbs

I have a set of safety stands that I use. I raise the coach all the way up and turn the key off. Then I slip the safety stands in next to the air bags, leaving a little space. Turn the key on and dump air until the coach is resting on the safety stands. Key off and in my pocket. Then put out a ground cover and crawl underneath. Biggest problem is the numerous trips under and out to get the proper tools. Second biggest challenge is to try to work in awkward positions with trifocals.

I use a "magic creeper" for the short trips under the coach, over priced, but rolls up compact, zero ground clearance.
