Yeah it does that. If I crank our front jacks down too much my "hood" pops open as lifting the front mis-aligns the hood latches (which also indicates that the fiberglass front does have some flex to it).

I put our wind down jacks pretty far back, behind the front wheels to avoid that (thanks for the trial ) I've not noticed any twisting and they give me plenty of levelling ability, however I'll be keeping an eye on any cap leaks for sure.

Wall damage under passenger window.

Jamie, where did you get your repair done on the leak under the window? I live in Indiana and I have the same problem on the passenger window.
Thank you.
