Leveling your RV shouldn’t be a task. It’s important for a number of reasons. First, just for comfort. Not having that feeling that you’re leaning to one side or another while living in the RV. Second, if you have a propane powered RV refrigerator, it’s important to have the camper as level as possible to ensure proper operation. And lastly, your camper doors. It’s such an annoyance to deal with doors that will not stay closed or open against a wall because of an unlevel camper. There’s a simple solutions – RV leveling blocks.
Using 1×6 Boards
For the past several years, I’ve used 10 inch long 1×6 boards that I’d place under the camper tires to deal with a site that was unlevel. The solution was cheap and simple if all I had to deal with was raising the camper an inch or two. It was a bit of a pain if I had to deal with multiple boards. Place one, backing up. Then finding the camper still was unlevel. Pull forward, add another. Back up. If more are needed, then I would end up in this LEGO scenario of building a ramp with multiple boards.

We found a simple and easy solutions recently after purchasing the a set of RV Levelers. These are more than a simple RV leveling block, the box contained two curved levelers that you place under the tires and ease the RV backwards until the camper is level. TheRV Levelers provide up to 5 inches of lift and it only takes a couple of minutes to raise the RV to desired level of height. The RV Levelers are well designed and the description states the levelers will support campers up to 35,000 pounds in weight.
My only regret – that I didn’t purchase a set of RV Levelers when we acquired our 5th wheel.
