It is important to level fifth wheel campers, and it needs to be done every time one is parked. While this may seem like a chore, it is not a difficult task, when you know how to carry it out properly.
Tools and Materials:
- Carpenter’s Level
- Plastic Levelling Blocks
- Tongue Jack
Step 1 – Check the Ground
Using a carpenter's level, check how level the ground is, the more level the ground, the less levelling will need to be done. Checking with a carpenter's level first is quicker than attempting to level the fifth wheel camper on a very uneven surface.
Step 2 – Place Levelling Blocks
On the side that the camper that is lower, put down some plastic levelling blocks and roll the camper onto them. Alternatively, use planks of wood or inflatable levels rather than plastic levels.
Step 3 – Check the Levels
Check that the fifth-wheel camper is level, using the carpenter level. If it is not, then add more blocks where necessary. Repeat this step until the camper is level.
Step 4 – Secure the Level
To make sure that your fifth-wheel camper is secure. Place a tongue jack under the higher end to add extra support. Be careful not to overextend the jack, otherwise the fifth wheel camper will be lifted off its wheels, making it unstable.
