Commonly referred to as leveling jacks, these mechanisms are operated manually, electrically or via hydraulics. They extend from the bottom of the coach to level it while in a parked position. The vehicle must be level to ensure proper operation of component parts and ease of use. Misuse of levelers can result in an abnormal twisting of the frame and cage.
The use of the electronic stabilizing system to support an RV for any reason other than which it is intended is prohibited. The stabilizing system is designed to be a stabilizing system only. It should not be used to provide service(changing tires, servicing the stabilizing system) under the coach.
The coach should never be completely lifted off of the ground. Lifting the wheels off the ground will create an unsafe, unstable condition. Improper leveling can cause twist, resulting in cap, windshield or slide-out room issues.
