I have a question about using landing gear on slightly uneven ground. I always do my best to level the trailer before dropping the landing gear but there are times where I am off slightly.
If I add an extra leveling block or 1x4 then I am off an equal amount in the other direction. Itís usually a variation of about 1/2 a pin hole plus or minus on either side. When I extend the landing gear one side will end up coming under tension for a second or two before the other.
Is this a problem? I imagine I am lifting all the weight of the trailer with the one leg for that second or two until the other leg comes under tension which I realize is a no no. But then I cant imagine most are that precise with their side to side leveling prior to extending the landing gear. What say you?

If you will post in the signature line your RV information that will help responders give better information. I carry a variety of boards to first get the trailer level side to side, then when dropping the landing gear use appropriate stacks to get that level also. I try not to extend the legs too far to improve stability. These procedures apply for me regardless if I have a leveling system or regular manual legs.
