That's a shame. I like being under ther when either I have the jacks up only. It doesn't leave a lot of room to manuever but is a whole lot safer.

I've only seen one motorhome fall off the jack. Luckily, nobody died, tho if it happened maybe 20 seconds sooner it could have turned out differently. 2nd attempt- stacked 4x8 blocks for stand. Worked great. And nobody died. It was a shop trained mechanic taking a shortcut he shouldn't have to change a flat.

I can get under our Windsport without lifting of the ground. I do put the coach jacks down and if I lift the coach it is only about 6". If I do that I do use the orange Lego block type levers and they are IMO very strong. We chock the rear wheels so no movement of the coach. Had someone changing the oil once on the ground and after a bit he got stuck under the coach. Had to lower the jacks and raise the front of the coach about 12" so he could get out. Also have stand jacks incase we need to raise the coach and wheels off the ground. The stand jacks carry twice the weight of the coach.

I'd run out of fence posts. J/K, I have good neighbors that look out for me when I'm away.
