If your wheels are coming off the ground you should have boards under them. Your frame will stress and start to bend. Unless you have auto leveling, the jacks are just to stabilize and not to lift.

My dual acting jacks are rated at 12,000 lbs each on a coach that weighs 18,000 lbs, and about the only thing that happens to this old F53 frame with the front wheels hanging is maybe the springs get re-arched a bit. Which they can probably use anyway. I can level faster than most auto levelers with my manual pushbutton panel, and the jacks always work in pairs, eliminating any frame twisting when used correctly.

Question.....If the jacks are just to stabilize and not to lift.....how do you level your coach ? If you pull into a site and your not level ...do you just stabilize a un-level coach ? I don't understand.....

I have a travel trailer so we level side to side by putting lynx levelers down if needed, sometimes one or two. We then level front to back using the front jack. We then put down the stabilizer jacks. Takes about 10 minutes.

My husband, son (8 yrs), daughter (6 yrs) and our dogs in our Class A travel all over as often as we can! We love clean swimming pools, lots of fun activities (crafts, movies, competitions, bands, dances with a dj, etc.), basketball courts, big playgrounds, and FRIENDLY office personnel- this makes us happy campers!

What is it about camping or a campground that makes you a happy camper. Is it family time, activities, lack of activities etc. in the day it was the great memories of time with the family and we have some good ones. Currently it is my wife and I, sometimes the dog, sitting out relaxing under the awning with our coffee deciding what and when we will have breakfast. A quiet peaceful campground helps with that and a nice view makes it even better. It is just our special time that we started doing last fall and have continued this year. When we camp alone it is best but even when we are camping with a group we get this quiet time some. What makes you a happy camper.

Camping Mer, all good things in my book. Some don't like anything more than a spot but I do like things like you have listed.

Being able to get out there makes me happy.

If there is any water at the CG (river, lake, ocean), then my kids have all the activities we need.

For us staying at a park or campground next to or near to a river or lake is nicer than staying at some upscale "resort" next to an interstate or high traffic roadway, etc. Two of our favorite places so that we've stayed at so far are Camp Gilbert Ray just southwest of Tucson, right out in the desert and JGW south of Redding, CA. right on the Sacramento river. When we toss out the anchor at either of these two, we simply don't ever want to leave. Back in Feb. of 2012 while at CGR camapground it snowed for a day and it was incredibly beautiful with all the cactus and desert coverd in about two inches of snow. Next day the sun came out and by noon it was all gone and we were basking in the upper 70s. Ahh yes, when that happens, life is very, very good.................. biggrin.gif
