Wood Working

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

I carry a selection of wooden blocks in my motorhome to put under the leveling jacks in case I park on a slope or over a soft spot. It can be difficult to position the blocks properly, and can often require bending down and reaching across a number of times, which can be hard on your knees and back.

To make the process easier, I cut a hole and a trench near one end of each block, and then I use my awning rod to position the blocks exactly where I want them under the motorhome jacks. If you don’t already have an awning rod, they are readily available at RV supply stores.
