I have a private campground membership and a new member just joined. He had bought a new SOB fifth wheel and the dealer delivered and set it up. I couldn't believe what I saw. They left the large fifth wheel up on its landing gear and the axles and wheels were 12" off the ground. I hate to think of the vibration, shaking and potential damage to the landing gear and stress on the frame. And, if any one of the four legs lets go the trailer will be a wreck. I have never seen this before. This unit was brand new and set up on frozen ground. When the ground starts to thaw that unit is shifting, guaranteed.

I wonder if they're coming back with concrete blocks and shims at a later date. One would hope so anyway.
