I level exactly the same as durlach, it's worked fine for decades so far. The limiting factor for out-of-level is the refrigerator. Dometic and Norcold both say 6* front-to-back, and 3* side-to-side (looking at the refrigerator door) is the maximum out-of-level, more will damage the cooling unit.

I've jacked up one wheel at a time to remove blocks. It works, but you need a jack big enough to do the lifting, something to protect the axle if the jack does not have a cradle and enough jack handle, muscle or heft to be able to do the lifting. Make sure the trailer is well blocked (forward and back) on the other side.

Just something to keep in mind

DATELINE: CRAIGSVILLE, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A man attempting to level a trailer was killed when the trailer fell on him.
The Nicholas County Sheriff’s Department says Harold *******, 51, of Camden in Webster County died in the accident Thursday night.

The Sheriff’s Office say the accident happened on Power House Road in Craigsville in Nicholas County.
Deputies say Wolverton and other family members were to attempting to level a trailer when the cinder blocks and jacks holding up the trailer failed.
Mr. ******* was pronounced dead at the scene.

That sounds like he was leveling a mobile home, not an RV trailer. Mobile homes are much heavier than an RV trailer. Wonder why they deleted his last name?It is public record anyway.

"cinder blocks and jacks holding up the trailer failed."
Oh yes, good old cinder blocks, there was the biggest mistake right there.
