Problems with swing-down levelers
My Four Winds Chateau has swing-down style levelers with a small footprint. We had a few issues with these last year.
1. The small footprint would cause them to sink into the dirt a little bit, making it harder to level.
2. on some sites that were a bit more unlevel, the levelers couldn't raise us up enough to fix it. Even fully extended in our lowest corner we would still be unlevel.
3. Again, on very unlevel sites, sometimes the legs would hit the ground but not be able to kick out and extend.
Later in the season we realized we had suspension airbags (derp) and once they were inflated things got easier, but still not perfect.
For these reasons, we are looking into jack pads. I'm not sure though, will the leveler just kick it out of the way when it swings down?
Another option we are considering is buying Lynx or Andersen style pads to drive up on, giving the levelers more clearance to swing out (or just using them in lieu of the levelers altogether).
Any thoughts/suggestions from those who have solved these problems/used these products?
