My MH is stored at my daughters house and the other day I had to take it out of the driveway as she was having a roof repair done and the roofer needed to get to the back of the house. It sure felt good as I drove it away and brought it here for a couple of days.
Took it back yesterday and when I was backing in, I got too far to the side and was running on the sod. Recognized the situation, stopped and when I went to go forward she wouldn't move. The front wheel sunk and the rear wheels on the grass side sunk.
Broke four or five pieces of 12 x 2 plank before I found a couple pieces of 4 x 4. That allowed me to jack up the rear and put a couple planks under the wheels and did the same for the front. the good news is she came out without a hitch and no damage done - other than to the lawn.
Still it felt good to hear that cat ourr and drive down the road.

Great that you got yourself out.
I hope the soft ground wasn't an indication of the presence of a septic field, or other in ground services.

No, she is on town water and sewer. Just that time of year when the ground is super saturated with water.
