Leveling

What else can I use besides leveling blocks or wood to stabilize and level my motorhome?

Are you asking about other "manual" solutions or other "systems"? Hydraulic or electric leveling systems (cost $$$$) are available and can be installed on most MH's. As for the manual solutions - 2x6 or 2x8 lumber and the "lego" blocks are the most used.
Not sure if i addressed you question completely

One other option - some have used scissors jacks to help stabilize --- leveling with those could be a little challenging due to the weight of the MH.

I helped my buddy with a class c, we used 4 hydraulic bottle jacks from harbor freight, around $20 ea. On his rig we put them under the rear bumper and under the front axle, sometimes on blocks depending on the camp site. It is a bit of a hassle to lug all the equipment around but effective

This is the best system I know of I did a great deal of research before I bought it. Very low maintenance and works great.

It was 2 years ago and retail was around 4k but I paid a little over half that because I worked it into the deal.

Each jack is a self contained unit and there is only 1 control panel that they aren't mounting on the dash anymore but on the back of the dining table or on the switch wall. Just make sure no one is moving inside while leveling. Maintenance is once a year extend the jacks all the way and spray the metal with dry silicon and rub in. You can raise the tires off the ground with this...

Go to www.equalizersystems.com
These are more stabilizers than levelers ...
