Lowering a TC
« on: March 22, 2018, 05:24:42 PM »
When lowering the camper in the truck, start with the front or the back?

Doesn't make any difference. Just go a couple of inches at a time and evenly the best you can.

Watch the front edge of the cabover, especially with an extended cab.  Make sure you don't tilt it forward enough to let the cabover hit the truck cab.

I raise/lower all 4 jacks at the same time. When I take it off the truck, I will adjust each jack individually to level it up when close to the ground.

By pushing a button on the remote. Most modern campers have a wireless remote. You can raise/lower 1,2,3 or all 4 jacks in a combination you want.
This makes loading/unloading much easier and quicker and you can walk around the camper/truck while doing so to keep an eye on things.

Not bragging, just stating how I and most people I know do it.

Only if  I had power jacks,  I have never watched anyone load  a TC on a truck. And I do it by myself.
