What's wrong with this picture?

New neighbors pulled in last night. I could tell they were new to RV'ing the way drove into a dark campground at warp speed....backing in the same way with heavy throttle.
Came out this morning and saw this.Click image for larger version

Warp speed at night in the dark is the first clue and then all 4 wheels off the ground, not a food idea

Did you have a chance to talk to them. And for all newbies sake - can someone explain what level lets are and how to use them properly? For all we kno, they could be IRV2 members and too embarrassed to speak up. No - it is not me, but honestly don't have a good understanding of how to
Work those things.

If they are still there perhaps you could give them a few pointers and tell them about iRV2.

Maybe he had traveled all day and thought it a good idea to lift his tires up and let them air out. I do my feet that way all the time.

I did not have a chance to talk with them. I was headed out the door at 7:15 AM for a customer event. When I got back they were gone.
However Patty did call me as they couldn't get one jack to retract. I did my best by phone till another camper helped out.

I've often wondered why RV mfg's install such long jacks if they didn't know this would happen often. I'm not sure how many times I thought I was close enough to level before leveling not to lift a tire, only to get done and see one up.

I have a friend who does this all the time. The couple of times I brought it up, he said that if the automatic leveling system does it, then it must be fine. He's a big guy, and he added that I should shut up talking about his rig. So I did.
