Leveling

Manually level and stay away from the auto leveling. always put down front first that will stop you from cracking the windshield as so many have. Then level rear!!!! I level from the floor next to the drivers seat but some will say to level the frig!!!!whatever works!!!! I have a 2006 Dip---Glad to help and WELCOME!!!!!!

Jack supports are nice, so you do not sink into the ground. A jack support is - a piece of 2 x 10/plywood/concrete block what ever is larger than the jack pad.

I actually put a torpedo level on the kitchen slide trim about mid-coach for front/back and for side to side, I use the trim above the pantry cabinet that is left/right.

As others have said, on soft sites, some type of jack pads are helpful. Heck, mine are 12" x 24", and I have sunk them in the ground on very soft sites! If the site is VERY unlevel, consider additional blocks under one or two of the jacks to get more lift for the jack travel.

Also as said, lower the front/center jack first and get the front/back level or front high. Then lower the rear jack on the side that needs to come up the most. You should be able to level with just these two, then lower the third jack just to stabilize.

At least, that is my process and seems to have worked over the last 9 years.
