If you have a level on the mh and it shows the front is 5 inches high (or any other number) can you calculate the % of the grade? would the wheel base have a bearing on the calculation?

Al,
yes. rise divided by distance times 100 equals percent grade. Assuming a 40' mh: 5/480=.0104166 brings you a 1.04166% grade.

L8r,
Steve

Basically you have a 5/40 pitch, 5" in 40 ft.

If you level your coach on that grade, be sure to block the rear wheels & set the brake, assuming that the rear is the low end. This would be a good time to get owners manual out and read what is allowed and how they suggest you handle this situation. 5" isn't bad, but you should always follow the owners manual directions. Be safe, not sorry!
