Super C Level

Seems like our 35SD is just a bit high in the front has anyone looked at a bit of a front lift? I was looking at Sumo Super Springs as they are a few inches taller than the stock bump blocks.

My 33SW sits high in the back. It's a challenge when it comes to leveling the coach since we have to use blocks under the front when we park or the tires get lifted off the ground by the leveling jacks.

You are right thatís the way our coach sits also.... Anyone out there come up with a better fix?

I was told the tires coming off the ground aren't an issue for these rigs? That wasn't true or is it a personal preference not to have them 'swinging in the breeze'?

I have been told both. So to play it safe, we make sure to have blocks under the front tires. We had the tires off the ground one time and it seemed like the MH moved a lot more when we walked inside. So for now we will keep blocking the front tires. Only takes an extra couple of minutes.

I hardly ever use the leveling jacks. Just find a spot as level as you can and manually deploy what little jack you need. The coach seems much more stable on the beefy truck frame and tires that it does sitting on 4 broom sticks. I may put them down just to the point of touching the ground but never to the point they start lifting the tires. Never felt there was an uneven issue front to back.

Thanks Folks. Makes sense. I never thought of using manual mode. And that doesn't get the system out of sync?

No..manual works great. I use the auto-level system twice. I felt like a Disney ride, jolting you back and forth...up and down. Seems it over extends then has to retract to compensate. Manual works great...you either deploy both front...both rear of both on either side. Let them down just to where you feel the coach tighten up.
