In a previous post I described how we finish off our parking in the driveway. We have to extend the jack almost to the limit due to the downslope of the driveway. I use concrete pavers to raise the jack to allow the lift, but I don't like to leave it supporting the tongue weight at that extreme extension.
jspafford, Do you keep the trailer like that when parked? If so, I would think it would put undo stress on the back axle.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

We use the Lynx Levelers also. We have been using them for years. We use the Bal expandable chocks between the tires. Unless on some steep grade, we usually only use one. We gave up the slinky sewer hose years ago and went to the Sewer Solution. We do carry an old slinky for quick gray water dumps at a community dump site. As far as leveling, we use a carpenter's level on the rear bumper for side to side leveling. We had several of the type that attach to the trailer which we never found real accurate. We use brass hose quick connects for all of our hoses and outlets. the work great and save a lot of time. We use a cordless electric power drill/driver with a 3/4" socket to make short work of the stabilizers. We also use it on the Hensley WD bars.

Good luck with your Airstream.
