Level trailer during storage
« on: September 19, 2017, 01:28:24 PM »
Hi folks,
I've got my tt stored at a local campground that I frequent. My question is
should I level the trailer while in storage? There is a slight slope where the
trailers are stored.
By the way I got the Anderson levelers that people on the forum have
recommended and used them for the 1st time last weekend. 3 thumbs up
for their ease of use.
Thanks for the help everyone.

There is no need to level the trailer unless the fridge is running. In fact, a slight angle will help water run off the roof.

What about being unlevel side-to-side?  Single axle.  Is an inch block under one side better than both tires on the pavement?

A good idea.  If you do not plan to operate the refrigerator and deploy any slides at all while in storage, no need to level.

Okay it sound like leveling will not be needed. The refrigerator won't be running and
all slides will be in. Thanks a lot for the input.
