When I was talking about levelers, I was referring to the lego type of blocks you can put under the tires. I looked at the expense of adding a leveling system to the coach and that was a little bit too much. I have about 20 Lynx leveling blocks and some chocks. I think I will be ok. Plan to see if I can level the front end while sitting.

We never spent any money for blocks to level an RV. On our old El Dorado Class "C" and later on our Denali Travel trailer, we just carried a selection of wood planks in a bin to stack-up as needed. It was always an "art" to build the right size "ramp" as needed to get level. Bubble level was inside - jump-in/jump-out/move/jump-in/jump-out/move...etc

The scissor style jacks on many RV's look like they would hold-up a normal size rig, but the ones on my Denali were specifically labeled to "not use to lift."

I figured, if I bought fancy blocks (like those nice ones from Camco) I would have wanted to keep them clean and such...old pieces of wood are easy to abuse and throw away. But at only $30-$40 for a pack of 10 with a carry bag, it might be easy to just buy them too.

If I had to level one end in the drive-way, I would use a floor jack and jack-stands. That would keep the tires off the ground too...and remember the tire covers to prevent sidewall sun damage. Covers are much cheaper than new tires.

Best luck
