Not another leveling question?

I just picked up my first Class A, Thor ACE 27.2. There are many posts here talking about leveling but couldn't find any responses to my issue. My coach sits cockeyed when just on normal pavement with jacks up. I noticed this when gassing up and I notice it at the storage facility and other places. At first I thought it was the pavement but I am convinced it isn't. I haven't hardly put anything in it yet because I just picked it up. I contacted the dealer and they said to contact Thor which I did. They said if "less than 1" it is within tolerance", However "if greater than 1" need to put a lift or longer bolt in". I measured it at 1½" difference but Thor says it has to be at the dealer. Any comments would be appreciated for this newbie.

I'd be at the dealership with it: explaining that you were told by Thor that it is out of spec...
Good luck!

My 2018 Freedom Elite Class C was almost 1.5 inches lower from passenger side to lower side/drivers side rear of coach. Thor has a spring spacer kit they sent to C.W. where I bought the rig and was installed on lower side leaf spring. The low side is where my slide out is and according to C.W., weighs in the range of 800 lbs. I looked at the spacer and it looks to be about 3/4 inch piece of steel. Raised the measurements to within 1 inch. Still lower but about 1 inch. In the future, maybe spring time, if I can afford to, want to have a set of Airlift air bags installed. Thor buys these Ford chassis and then puts a lot of weight on them without any additional suspension mods, both class A's and C's, and almost all people that own R.V.'s end up adding suspension mods of some sort. I'm having a rear track bar installed this week to help with tail wag which is common issue with my E350 Chassis. So all and all, when I get done throwing money into this pit, will have done SafeTplus on steering, track bar rear, air bags, and of course an alignment. Seems toughest one of all is finding a good alignment shop that is willing to play with the alignment as many times as necessary to provide best handling characteristics. At that point, I'm done with dumping money into it other than normal wear and tear and maintenance.

Have you tried filling it with water? My water tanks are on the opposite of the slide. I have never measured it but it handles better when full of water, rather than a partial tank. I have also noticed that after leveling and getting it almost perfect, it goes out of level when the slide is extended. Next time I am going to try and compensate for the slide.
