Can you tell??

Would one assume the following campsite has a little slope to it?



Took this pic today at a local State Park CG......, my only concern was that only one tire had a tire-block against it, and it was on the slide side of the TT that had wood under the tires leveling out the TT side-to-side slope. It's hard to see in the pic, but the front (slide side) stabilizer is fully extended.

One can only assume he had to dig out a 1' deep ditch in the back to keep the bumper out of the dirt

Re: Can you tell??

I have gotten stuck on sites like that before with no option to move to a different site....... it was miserable and I wasn't rel thrilled about it. I would never put my tounge jack on a bottle jack like that though! I agree I would be afraid to move in the camper!

I don't think it's a bottle jack, it looks like the "flip jack" that you can add to your jack, they actually work pretty good. Otherwise, I agree, I wouldn't trust it in this setting either.

I don't think its that important to be EXACTLY level......maybe get it pretty close to level and keep it at a safe unlevel. Or pull the camper in front ways and let the back end hang up in the air.
