Leveling Question

I use the Lynx leveling blocks (orange plastic, look like lego bloocks) for my moho. Should I place blocks under both of the back wheels, or is it ok to just support the outter set when parked short term?

You should support both duals. If you don't, damage could occur to the one that is supported.

Exactly, the Michelin RV tire guide (among others) shows the correct way to block under tires. The full width of the tread of each tire must be fully supported as well as both tires of a dually.

One is fine. The common wisdom is, of course, to block both, and that's probably the CYA answer. However, considering that the load while parked is a "static" load, and will never come close to the load put upon it while traveling down the road, one will do and is what I do , and have always done, in my 26K lb rig, and I'm parked about 10 months out of each year. All IMHO!

Agree.

If you need two wheels to support the weight of the axle while driving, you need two wheels to support it while sitting.
