Same here. With all the concrete or gravel pads, about the only reason I'll use them any more is those campsites that are so off-level I feel like I'm in the Joker's lair in an episode of Batman. If you grew up in the 60s, you'll get my reference.
We employed our auto-levelers unsuccessfully on a recent trip. So, out comes the pads to give an adequate down-stroke to get to level. Visually, the camper looked silly up on 2 wheels. Thanks goodness we had a step-stool to position at the foot of the entrance. The door jam was above knee-height after the leveler was done.
