I think so, especially if it is a rear tire since that is where the parking brake holds you in place. I use plastic blocks under the wheels to maintain tire contact and prevent the weight of the wheel to hang on the suspension.

I agree with Jerry. If a tire is off the ground after leveling I will use blocks under the tire and the relevel.

Atlanta Rally

Are there any Palazzo owners at the Atlanta rally currently in progress.
If so, any suggestions on best vendors to visits, best deals to be found, new toys that we can't live without?

I am currently in the Atlanta area but not in my Palazzo and not at the rally. I hope to make it there Saturday or Sunday for awhile so any suggestions would be welcome.

When I auto level sometimes my tires are almost off the ground. I have found manual leveling works best on general sites. Book says to level front to back first then side to side. I would not want my tire off the ground due to side loads on that particular jack as well as the brake issue as stated by others. I guess one day when I get a perfectly level site auto mode might be just right

Thanks all, I really thought those tires should be on the ground and you have confirmed it. I am heading to an area where I think it might be a problem so I thought I would check with the pros.

Last night was in the 40's and when we raised the front shade, the inside of the windshield was wet with condensation and water was puddled on the dash. It is amazing how high the humidity can get inside the coach.

Towing

I have a Toyota Van I'd like to tow 4-flat and I've heard Remco makes a transmission lub system that works on non-towable vehicles. Anybody used one or have knowledge of the system?

You might check on this thread. I'm sure that you can find or get an answer there.

Patio Light Over Heated

My patio light stopped working and I found a bulb burnt out. Closer investigation I found the top of the fixture to be melted allowing water to enter the fixture (see photo).

Purchased a replacement fixture ($5.31) and a LED bulb ($19.09). The folks at the RV parts store suggested that I could save a few bucks by installing a lower watt bulb to prevent over heating.

Suggest that everyone check their fixture for signs of over heating.

Checked light. Appears to be ok. Did re-seal across the top just in case.
Thanks for the heads up.
