I'm not familiar with Horizon. Its not HWH and I just never heard it called that. What is considered long term? The pads can compress into the ground and become too stuck for springs to return. I wonder if that's part of it.
You could lift higher and lower frame onto lumber. Maybe level manually. Use proper sequence front up some first and lowered last.

I've never heard of that either.

For winter storage, I put blocks under jacks (maybe 5-6 pieces of 2x10s), then lower the coach on those. Takes the weight off the tires.

Edit: I got curious and looked at the Windsor manual and sure enough, there is Horizon Leveling. That's for rest breaks etc.

For long term storage, search for "long term storage" in your manual. The procedure is the same what I'm doing.

Interesting...I wonder what their definition of "Long term" really is? Several weeks? Months?

I imagine if you are just long term camping in it and don't want to do/buy anything else, using pads underneath (or blocks of wood) to prevent sticking, and maybe blipping them up and down every few weeks would probably suffice

Thanks, But Monaco years 05 & 06 came with Intelli Ride air system made by Firestone for air Leveling. These years DO NOT have any air or HWH leveling. Long term i am looking for is 5 to 7 days. Manual states for long term parking use hydraulic jacks should be used. Problem is no hydraulic jacks or HWH on coach. Need to know what others who own these years made Monaco level with NO jacks.

Thx for the response Manual on pages 10-395 and 10-396 discuss Horizon Leveling.

Well, I have never heard of a Windsor without some sort of leveling system
Some coaches even have both jacks and air leveling.
If you really don't have either one then you will need to do what we did years ago, which is stack up boards on the low points of your parking spot and drive upon them.

BTW I wouldn't think 5 to 7 days was long-term.

Monaco only put the firestone Inteliride on the 2005's, not 2006's.

In 2006 they went with the Valid air leveling system, so I'm not real familiar with your system.

If you put " firestone Intelliride" in the IRV search engine, you'll get all kinds of reading materials.
