I am going to create a retainer to cage the front axles simply to take the stress off of the shocks and make it easier to put cribbing under the front wheels.

GMC, we went to Paris Mountain State Park on SC a few weeks back. The "slight grade" on our site turned out to be bad enough that with over 10 inches of cribbing under the front jacks and at full extension, I would still need 13 inches of lift to level. I carry one compartment with nothing but cribbing. My coach is a 32 ft class C. For my next improvision, a string to tell me how much I need to get level.
Instead of a string get a Level Mate Pro. Once installed and calibrated it will tell you exactly how far off level your coach is in inches at each corner. I've had the LMP for several months now and it works great.
