RV Leveling Jacks Repair and Service
Leveling jacks stabilize a recreation vehicle (RV) while in use. Leveling and stabilizing are not the same thing with an RV. Leveling ensures that the floor of the RV remains true and in older RVs, ensures that your refrigerator works properly. Stabilizing makes an RV more comfortable and solid. Do not attempt to level your RV with the leveling jacks or you can damage your RV frame. Use the leveling jacks only to provide support for your RV after you level the RV with blocking or other leveling devices.
Preventative Tips for RV Jacks
The first thing to consider when talking about the prevention of damage and or failure of leveling jacks is to avoid lifting the wheels too far off the ground. If you get the tires off the ground and get sidewise pressure (ex: high wind) the Motor Home can shift and the jacks bend, break, collapse, or otherwise fail. If the wheels must come up far enough to take them off the ground, drive up on pads than put an equal number of pads under the jacks. On most motorhomes the parking brake is on the rear wheels. If you take both of them off the ground it is best if the front wheels be well chocked.
