Orange Block Shortage

Might be a shortage of orange leveling blocks in my neck of the woods. Saw this today.

OH $H!T! Is it just me or does anyone else here Forest Bump's, "Stupid is as stupid does"?

EDIT...

OK...after looking closer at the picture the front wheels are chocked and it looks like the jacks were used to lift it onto floor stands.

Still...looks scary to me.

Hope he realizes that the only keeping him from rolling down the hill are dangerously close to being off the ground. Always point the forward part of your coach down hill when on a slope.

Hope he doesn't get lucky tonight and get the coach rocking.

That's one of the drawbacks to a MH, unlevel parking spots.

Looks like a common sense shortage, too.

If you enlarge the photo, you see the front tires are chocked on both sides forward&back. There are also jack stands under the frame rails just forward of the leveling jacks and the rear duals ARE off the ground. And no it's not mine to dangerous.

The parking brake is probably just a drive shaft constrictive holder and has no affect on the front wheels.

It's a DP, if it has air brakes the rear drums are locked up tight, but nothing holding it on the front other than the chocks.
I bring the front wheels off the ground all the time, but ONLY the fronts.
