Are all jacks in firm contact with the ground? We level by dumping air, then extending the low side jacks first, then dropping the opposite side jacks to engage the ground.

At one point, we had an issue with one jack not extending fully. Fixed that.

Also, a few months (and several thousand miles) after she became ours, I was crawling around underneath and found that the driver's side front jack mounting plate was missing two of four 1/2in bolts. The other two had the nylon part of the nylock nuts just barely on the threads. Easy to swing the jack assy by hand. Really surprized that didn't fail. (N0, now that you bring it up. I do not crawl around under there while she is up on jacks)

I think you'll still get some rocking. It's not like you're sitting on a foundation. That's why some manufacturers have gone to those fold out steps that the far end sits on the ground. You don't have a lever sticking out that people step on causing the unit to rock.

You get used to it. I don't even notice it.

Paul, do you just let the coach "auto level?" If so, it may not really stabilize it. In my previous MH after auto level I went into manual mode and just bumped up each side. I used a level on the floor next to the driver set. The extra bump may give you more stability.

I still use a level on the floor next to the driver seat and will manually adjust after auto level if I need to.

(RVM-14) It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Every time I see this thread I think about the old bumper sticker that ends with the word knocking.
