Leveling

How do you level your rig off-road? Anybody use these RV leveling BLOCKS?

The reviews say they don't work well on soft (off-road) surfaces. What do you use on NON-Solid surfaces?

I either dig a hole for a wheel that's too high or run up on rocks I pile to raise a corner - or both if it's really sloped ground.

levelling

We have a bullseye level mounted in front of the cupholder holes on the driver's side of the console where it's easily visible to the driver and use a combination of local terrain (digging small holes, rocks, etc.) a levelling ramp I found abandoned at another campground, and 2 sets of Lego style levelling blocks. The levelling blocks need a pretty flat surface to prevent cracking, so there are some limitations with them.

rocks

Leveling with rocks (and holes) is part of the fun of camping! 4x4 low range is useful for carefully crawling up your rock castles.

I used some scrap pieces of 2" x 6" with my previous (and larger) motorhome, but don't know if I'll have the storage space for them in my SMB. Will deal with that when the time comes.
