Driveway Steepness

I do not know if this the right place to post this. If not please move to the correct area. I have a 2018 Intent 30R. My drive way is kind of steep. The drivers rear corner is my low spot. I have bought the Ultra-Fab skid wheels and placed them on the tow hitch. Most of the time the drivers side wheel is the only one being used. Along with the wheels and a couple of 2x12 I can get up and down the drive way about 2 times before the casting (center portion) of the skid wheels break. Do any of you have suggestions on how else I can help alleviate this problem?


Thanks in advance,

Scott

Can you back up your driveway? The front end shouldn't have problems because the overhang is so much less.

I back up my driveway and that way I can level using the jacks without lifting rear wheels. I don't mind the jacks lifting the front but never the back.

I cannot back the RV in due to my tight space, I would not be able to open the door enough to get in or out.

I had that problem in my last house. I had to build a small "bridge out of 2x's and plywood.. problem solved.. They were portable.. but a pain to have to do it every time I had to leave or return.. BUT, it worked. I have never liked the wheels you speak of as it really torques the house frame.

Some driveways, like mine, are not cut out for RVs. Even some cars drag their tails trying to ascend my driveway. Fortunately I can park in the street in front of my house. If I'm parked for a while I'll run a long 20 amp extension out to the coach.

Solution: Stay on the road or move to a less hilly location.
