Leveling blocks

If you have dual wheels in the rear must you use leveling blocks under both wheels ? If I was setting up for more than 3 days I would say yes.
Thanks for your help.

It is better for the tire if you do support the weight using both wheels.

If you are setting up for more than three SECONDS, you want blocks under both wheels. No matter what kind of coach, small, large, in between, if it's got dual wheels, and you want to use them for leveling, then drive up on BOTH OF THEM. The reason is, there is an un-do amount of strain on the entire mounting system of those tires and wheels if, the total weight of the corner of the coach, is placed on only one wheel and tire, of a dual wheeled axle.

Yes, there are folks that do it all the time. That doesn't make it right, just 'cause they're lazy and won't bother to carry TWO ramps (blocks). You're already down on your knees doing one so, it's no big deal to place THE OTHER ONE WHILE YOU'RE AT IT!

I have a friend with a junky old class c and he will sometimes put a block under the one wheel in the back and it just makes me cringe. You should always use both wheels but if you only have one make sure you put it under the inside wheel and not the outside.
