Default All jacked up!, & New Toad, & New Surge Protection problem

Cover a few things in one post

First trying to get level in my yard
My yard is so not even I made new wood block pads the other day and they work.

Aired up the coach and put the pads under it and let the air out them dropped the back jacks.

I am a lot more even now the front is super low now and the back is still not 100% level as the yard is so off but this is a lot better now.

I must be a foot higher in the back now.

? how high can the jacks go i did not want to keep going and maybe get them jammed?

Before the pads and jacking up


After




Our new tow car we just got I have the front end part on order to put on next. a 2007 Saturn Vue



The new New progressive industriesEMS-PT50X 50 Amp EMS with Surge Protection.
The new one has this rain cover just got it in today.
It is missing a part the top part that hooks the rain cover on is missing. I called them and they will send me out a new part for it. The box was open and not in another box. Also in the photo is a 50 to 30 plug from them

The jacks wont jam, just not go higher.

One thing to remember, the only parking brake is on the drive axle. I never like to jack the rear up without blocking the front tires so there is no chance the bus will roll...

Ive put a lot of blocking under the jacks with no problem... See the photo!
But note the drive axle is on the ground ;}

Ok that is good to know I did not know that about the back end only having the breaks.
