New rig / 355MBQS

Just got it home a couple hours ago! Pulled nicely on way home; may have to adjust trailer brakes a little but all seems good so far. Can't wait to camp in it!

Thanks fellas! With the extra length I am having to clear some brush and removed some fencing to get relatively level ground along it length. My biggest issue is when I unhook the truck is up on a parking pad while the trailer is not, so I have to raise the front a lot to clear the truck..this caused the jacks to lift the rear right off the ground when I tried to auto level. Sooo, I am going to try to raise the rear wheels by backing onto two 2x12's next and see if that helps enough to level front to back. My long run goal is to fill in the whole area and decrease the angle, maybe later this summer.

lol, yes, quite a side-slope!

For what it's worth I did get it level. I backed onto 2x12's and a couple links levelers to raise the rear end a few inches. Then I blocked the front less (about 8") and did not release the feet, but rather I used manual mode and lowered the feet to the blocks. The landing gear was extended a long ways in order to unhitch, but because it wasn't blocked as high I was able to get the front down low enough, and then auto level worked like a charm.
