Good job!

BTW nice combo and welcome aboard.

Use jacks if you want. The system is perfectly fine raising one side or the whole rig. Personally I raise the whole rig.

When you say you raise the whole rig are you using the coach's hydraulic jacks, or are you using something external like bottle jacks? I'd like to just use the coach hydraulic jacks to raise the side I'm working on and then put a 10K jack stand on the frame for safety. One thing concerns me, one time when camping and we were using the Level Up system the site was uneven and the tires came off the ground. We decided we needed to bring the coach down and put some 2X8 boards under the downhill tires. When I hit retract rear on the Level Up control console the coach came down pretty fast and abruptly. Is there a way to bring the coach down gradually using the Level Up system? If not I'm liking the idea of the Trailer Aid ramp instead of jacking since it would be more gradual.

Some conditions will have a tire or two off the ground. Yes I have raised the whole RV so all 4 tires are off the ground. I use no jacks or jack stands.

I have not experienced abrupt dropping.

I raised the whole coach using the Level Up jacks and then put a couple of jack stands under the chassis on both sides behind the wheels for safety. Repacked the bearings by pumping through the zerk while rotating the tire. Used just under three 14 oz cannisters of Pennzoil 707L, probably too much but I made sure the grease coming back out the front was very clean. Thanks to everyone for the advice.

Did you look to see if any blew out the back seal?
