Lippert leveler

i have a Jayco Odyssey class C 29 model with auto leveling. I stayed at a campground that the site was very unlevel. It had a great view and nice view. I called the park manager and they brought a couple of 4x4 because it would not level without it. After the control box told me it was level the rear tires on the rear was at least 3 inches off the ground. My question is whether the the jacks could have stood this for a long period. I moved to another site less desirable.

Front tires just spin, rears are yer brakes, so never have them off the ground, ever
On blocks is fine, but floating never

I hate my front tires off the ground so will rather be in level then floating

As long as my feet are lower than my head in bed, it's level to me

Best NOT to have the tires off the ground for several reasons.
Best to have blocks/levelers like these…

They make a set with carrying bag that we used to have for our fifth wheel, and they worked well for our fifth wheel.

The jacks are rated for 8000# so I think they'd be OK but most people (including me) try to get close to level without raising any tires off the ground. Do this by driving up on blocks until you're close to level before putting the jacks down. Auto level will get to level but, in my experience, usually ends up with the jacks extended further (ie rig higher off the ground) than if I level it manually. Also, if you drive up on blocks, you may have to put blocks under your jacks so that they'll have enough reach.
