Outlaw ramp update

Wrote in a while back about reducing the angle on the ramp for the toy hauler. this is what I came up with. Works pretty good. I can now "walk" the bikes up. With a little more foresight, I think I should have made the diamond plate a little longer to further reduce the angle. You can barely see the supports I made from 1/2" threaded rod and delrin pads. They are adjustable, affording the opportunity to raise the ramp another 3".

Thanks Pete. I failed to mention that I do extend the front levelers completely in order to tilt the rig towards the back before loading and unloading the bikes. It takes the front wheels right off the ground, but the levelers handle the load OK. Off topic, I still wish I could use the remote for leveling. I've tried everything that was suggested by fellow RVers on this site to no avail. I've also stopped trying to auto-level, and now manually level the rig using a bubble on the floor right by the leveling panel. Works way better than the auto-level cycle!!!!.

We had to figure out some workarounds for our Outlaw as well. Your solution is much more handy!

Yep, we gave up on the auto-leveling arcade ride a couple of months after we got our MH.
