Leveling.

I am in a place that is real un level and when level the wheels on one side are off the ground ..
Will it hurt anything for one night ? I don't have enough leveling blocks to put under the wheels and its late and the wind is blowing like crazy and I am tired of messing with it.

Thanks for any help.
SR.

Leveling.

It's quite common with the self leveling system for the wheels to be lifted off the ground during leveling

It sucks when it soooo unlevel that screen says "out of stroke".. that's when you have to start all over again.

I do have it level. So you are saying it would be OK to leave it with the wheels off the ground for one night ??
Thanks a lot for the help.

If you are using a hydraulic or electric leveling system the answer is yes. If you are using stabilizers, probably not. My motor home has the Bigfoot leveling system on it and we routinely have at least one wheel off the ground, not an issue.

Yep... it is routine... I've had mine set up for weeks at a time like this.
