New owner leveling question.

we take possession of our new 5th wheel next week. It has the Lippert 6 point auto level feature. The area where I plan to store my rig has a cement pad with about a 5+ degree slope. Am I going to run into issues with the levelers? Do all 6 legs work independently? If they are independent then could I store with just the front pads down. I'm sure the dealer will run me thru all of this but would like to know ahead of time so I can have different place to store it lined up if need be.

The 2 front jacks are independent from the rear 4. the 2 back jacks on each side work together. you can lift the front or either back side. Make sure to chock your wheels if just using the fronts while parked on a slope. Also when you unhook and hit auto level you pull your truck away from the trailer as the front end drops down to start the process

Exactly.

If the cylinders extend all the way out before hitting the ground then wood blocks under the cylinders will make up the difference.

This is probably going to be the case. I had auto levelers on my MH but it didn't have slides. Just concerned with getting level enough for slides.

Cribs are easy to make. Cut 16"-18"pcs of 2x4. Lay 3 pcs flat then 3 more nailed across .... repeat.

For something lighter the top and bottom 2 layers can be 3 pcs all the others can be 2pcs

Make sure to shim the bottom ( top needs to be level) to prevent the cylinder from sliding off.
