Urgent....is this ok???

I'm parked in front of my house for the night, I am leaning pretty good towards the street. Is this OK?

I tried using my leveling blocks but they kept sliding backwards on the pavement. And the grass is getting a little torn up so I just left it as is.

[QUOTE=jimmerz;2641446]. Is this OK?

Ok for stability? OK for the HOA? OK for traffic control?

Seems OK for all of the above for a short while. Cops might say something about blocking the sidewalk, though.

Ignorant to park like that

Considering older folks, handicapped and people with baby carriages. I am a believer that when one of us screws up it effects all of us, sorry if this upsets you but park somewhere else.

Thanks dagmandt.

Bob, it will be there for a short period, due to the grass and dampness from all the rain I didn't want to keep trying to get it perfect. Don't worry that didn't upset me.

I am usually more in the grass and the sidewalk is wide open. there is STILL enough room to walk through.

It is STORMING here and will be all night so no one will be walking and we currently have no handicapped individuals in our neighborhood.

bamaboy, you are right, the HOA might complain as well as the police? Hopefully neither since it will only be there for about 20 hours.

Time two on don't run the refrigerator. It will burn up your fridge for sure sitting on an angle like that. Otherwise no problem.

If you have a RV refrigerator, make sure that you turn it off. That's too much of a slope for it to work properly.

While I'm not sure if I would do it, i admit it's a brilliant idea to get it mostly off the street. Blocking the sidewalk is a concern though. You never know if someone in your neighborhood has a disabled guest that wants to go for a walk or kids on bikes that try to get through and end up leaving half their handlebars down the side of your new RV!

Thanks for the fridge comments, I thought I read somewhere about that. We are not running the fridge tonight. But... When I leave tomorrow can I have the fridge run off the propane as I travel, or should I just wait to get to the campground?

You'll get conflicting views on it, but I see no problem with running the fridge while driving.

Does not seem like there would be a lot of traffic on the street. Why drive it over the curb and leave ruts in the boulevard?

I am with Gordon: why? You are messing up your grass and sitting unlevel. If it is against the law or your HOA rules, you are still in trouble even if you are only half on the road.

With all the above said, you are also parked backwards, which is illegal as far as I know
