Went to pull out the yard Tuesday and down I went with the transmission setting on the ground along with the jacks. Dug out under the jacks enough to put some 2x12 four feet long under rear jack. Lowered the jacks enough to raise both rear wheels off the ground to put board under wheels to pull out. Finally got out after a few attempts. My question is have I hurt anything like the ride height from raising the wheels off the ground. I grawled under the coach and cleaned out all the mud and didn't see any damage. Never had anything get stuck in my yard before but the is the first pusher that has been parked there. Thanks for any help on the.

Before I had a gravel parking pad installed, I used sheets of scrap 1/2" plywood to park on over the winter and to drive across the muddy grass in spring. Very inexpensive.

You should be able to inspect the right height valves and make sure the link arm is still attached. There are 2 in the rear and 1 in the front.

Only other thing that is mounted low is the air tanks, just make sure nothing got bent/broke. Also check the air dryer, mine is pretty low with air lines going to and from it.

I had a Class C as we went to a company picnic in it. The picnic was in a large field, had a great time until the next AM. It had rained during the night. Started the RV and drove about 3 ft before we sunk up to our axles. Fortunately the person who leased the field had a large 4WD tractor, he hooked up to my front axle and pulled me out to solid road. No damage but lesson learned. I know it would be worse with our current coach.

You didn't hurt anything by picking it up with the jacks. Tire shops do it often.

Hard way

That's the way I learn things. I sorely underestimated the front end weight w/7.5 Onan. 4 days of sunshine and $300 tow truck bill, unstuck and damage free. I've promised myself no driving on anything but concrete or asphalt.

Only thing you hurt was your PRIDE. Welcome to the RV club.
