One question though, can I not open the slides? Will the slope cause a problem there too? I know about the refrigerator, but that's not a problem for what I'm trying to do.
In all seriousness, I must agree with you. I absolutely would not extend a slide, not a big one any way, I might pop my bedroom slide out a little if I needed, but.. You might could put a block under the front jacks, and be able to level it a little more that way.

No! Most streets also slope to the side for drainage. Lifting a motorhome front end off the ground is asking for it to lean sideways and fall off the blocks. I agree with other posters. Find a flat parking lot (maybe Wal Mart) and use your generator and do the work there.

Do not open the slides if the rig is not level. You are asking for problems. The slide will not center properly and will rub the sides or come completely out of line. Another repair bill.

Take it to the house of a buddy that has a level space. Bring beer to pay for his labor help.

That probably wouldn't work. No access to electricity.

IF all goes well this week, an Itasca Suncruiser.

Pretty good idea. Don't know that I've got a buddy where that would work though.

Okay. I'm not used to the idea of having electrical power wherever I go. Didn't think about the generator. Taking it to Wal-Mart and using the generator might just be what I need to do. Good idea. Thanks.

That's part of the long-term plan, but it doesn't help right now.
