The RV Doctor's Orders

RV Leveling Blocks Are Still the First Step in Manually Leveling an RV

Next Step Are Your Manual RV Leveling Jacks

You Can Add RV Leveling Technology, Even Auto-Leveling, to Many RVs

So Bob, I'd suggest you take a look at what's availble and see what best fits your needs and budget. There's nothing wrong with completely manually leveling your RV. A lot of people still do it that way. But, there are plenty of options to reduce the work you have to do and get you ready to enjoy camping that much faster.

Let me know what you decide?

All effort is made to ensure the correctness of Gary’s responses; however, not all responses will apply in every instance. Some situations may mandate a visual inspection and further hands-on testing. It is imperative that if you choose to follow any instructions or procedures outlined in The Doctor’s Orders column, you must first satisfy yourself thoroughly that neither personal nor product safety will be compromised or jeopardized. If you are in doubt or do not feel comfortable about a procedure, do not continue. Simply call your local RV service facility and make an appointment with them. Remember, the advice, recommendations and procedures offered by The RV Doctor are solely those of Gary. They do not necessarily reflect the opinions, procedures and recommendations of Lippert, this publication or any of its advertisers.
