Automatic leveling question

We are new owners of a 2018 39 ft Eagle tt. Automatic leveling works great on relatively level sites. Any suggestions on a way to elevate the front jack when it's still hitched to the truck to allow the placement of another block? Yesterday the front jack needed to be a little higher even though we had as many blocks under it as would fit so would not level. And yes it was the most level spot on the site. Thanks!

Air bags on the truck? Maybe a 10 ton hydraulic bottle jack.

You could put blocks behind the rear tires of your truck and back up onto them. It couldnít be a steep block but you could stagger two 2x6ís behind each tire to give you an extra 3 inches.

Maybe I'm confused, but I have a similar trailer (2019 330RSTS) with auto-level. Theoretically, if you had the jack ALL the way up (bottom of the foot would be slightly above bottom of the frame rails on mine), you're saying you couldn't stack enough under a level trailer with zero extension of the tongue jack to get it high enough to level?
