Suspension Question

I own a 2017 Thor Chateau 31W Class C. My neighbor has offered (for rent) his driveway over the winter for storage of my RV. He previously had a motorhome, so there is a 30 amp plug in available as well. The only potential drawback is the driveway is on a slant. After backing in, the passenger side would be noticeably lower than the drivers side. The angle isn't anywhere near enough to tip over the motorhome, but it is too much of an angle for the onboard jacks to level. My question is will this negatively affect the motorhome suspension? He only stored his motorhome here for one year, and didn't seem to have a problem with it. Prior to that he stored it locally in a climate controlled setting. I would appreciate all input. Thank you!

I would think not, but if concerned just put some boards on the low side, make some ramps.

If the angle is that severe you need shims under the planks to level and maintain good flat contact with the tires

Flat or nearly so is far better for long term storage

I would drive it up blanks and get it close if you could. We parked for a year in our back yard and it was an angle and not thinking about it when putting the slides out it actually bent some of the mounts the rollers were on.
