Block under only 1 tire

My long term rv spot is Not level. I jacked up my front drivers side tire and put a 4" block under it. It it level now but, I was wondering if this could cause any damage?

I don't see how it would cause damage.
It IS level now so all weight is evenly dispersed.
If you had left it as it was; maybe an issue....But you leveled it.
You'll be fine.

The entire foot print of the tire should rest on the block or else damage can occur.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Exactly, and if you have duals and only block one then it's severly overloaded on the one that's blocked since it's carrying the load for two tires.
Yes I know the OP said it was a front tire!

Other than the frig not working, on a class A, I've seen windshields crack if put in too much of a twist.

the parking spot at our house is sloped in two directions. it already cost us as much as we paid for the rv (1300 bux) to get a load of gravel and crusher run to get it as good as it is now. i have 2x12s permanently placed for the left side of the rig to at least get it level side-to-side, but it still slopes towards the rear more than the fridge can stand. i dont think i want a foot of boards under the rear tires just to be able to run the fridge. i put the rv in the (level) driveway prior to a trip.
