Journey completed

Just got home from a 5000 mile, 1 month trip. Austin, Tx; Lexington Ky; Avon Lake, Oh; Lake George, NY; Jackson, NJ; then back to Austin. Very few hiccups: pulling out of my driveway, I caught the left rear leg and bent it back a bit. Still works but will need to be straightened or replaced. Phone charger under bedroom TV died. Trapped a few mice and BEWARE of Texarkana, Tx KOA. Tons of ants. Levelers seem to hate non-level sites and stroke out. Went manual and all was ok. All in all, a very pleasant run.

I have the 4point auto leveller. The trick is to make up a set of blocks for each leg. Mine are 2pieces of 2*8 lumber with 1inch PT plywood on each side. Blocks are about 4-5 inches thick
Then when unhitching don't run jacks down to the blocks leave a couple inches so the front legs have to extend some. Lift front unhitch then put the blocks under the rears. Hit the autolevel button. Never overstroked since always auto levels.
Site needs to be close to level. If off side to side more than an inch use 2*8 board under the low side wheels. Never lifted tandems off the ground either.
Just our experience

Livin the dream... Retired!
