Leveling Your RV – In 4 Easy Steps
1. LEVELING BLOCKS
The trailer’s wheels are backed onto one layer of leveling blocks on each side to help prevent sinking into the ground. If the lot is uneven, side to side, additional layers of leveling blocks should be added to raise the lower side to level with the higher side. For tandem axle trailers we recommend a minimum of 2 bags of blocks.
2. WHEEL CHOCKS
Once level, each side, chock the wheels to prevent rolling and increase stability. (Equally great for stopping wheel movement when changing tires)
You can now disconnect from the tow vehicle.
3. POWER JACK
Front to back leveling is now done using the front-end Power Jack. Leveling blocks can be used under the front-end jack(s) to better disperse the weight and shorten the stroke length for increased stability.
4. SCISSOR JACKS
The corner stabilizer Scissor Jacks are then each lowered on to leveling blocks. These jacks are only to stabilize and are not designed to raise the trailer or support weight. The only exception to this would be trailers equipped with auto-leveling systems.
Now that your rig is stabilized, you can continue with your camp set-up!
TAKE A SIMPLE SECURITY PRECAUTION
If you’re camping in a travel trailer, be sure to use a hitch coupler lock to prevent trailer theft when you’re away from your site. This will prevent thieves from hooking up your trailer to their vehicle and towing it away.
HOOK UP YOUR POWER
Use a heavy duty, weatherproof power cord that matches your RV’s amperage requirements to hook up at your site. The RV Traveler’s Choice Power Cord comes with a choice of amperages and lengths, each with a built-in pull handle for easy, convenient and safe use.
HOOK UP YOUR WATER SUPPLY
Did you know that regular garden hoses contain a variety of toxins and contaminants, making them unsafe for drinking water use? That’s why you should always use a drinking water hose designed for RV applications, like one from RV Traveler’s Choice. We recommend you pair it with a water pressure regulator, which will protect your plumbing system against potentially extreme and damaging high pressures.
