A small packing piece of suitable material should be placed between the top of the concrete block and the underside of the chassis to cushion the weight and reduce the transmission of vibration.
When both sides of the main axle have been jacked up correctly, with the corner steadies adjusted, the holiday home should be leveled laterally and longitudinally, using a spirit level. Packers such as hardwood etc. can be used to level where necessary. Heavy duty axle stands should then be used as indicated.
Under no circumstances should the corner steadies be used as a permanent means of support.
If the holiday home is not level it could result in interior and exterior doors not opening and closing properly and may also affect large windows.
In some locations you may want to anchor your holiday home to the base. Some park owners insist on this procedure and some insurance policies require it for the peril ‘storm’ to be in place. Anchor points are located approximately 1 meter from the front and rear of the main longitudinal chassis members.
IMPORTANT: it is the responsibility of the park Operator/Dealer to check the holiday home is sited level in accordance with the relevant guidelines. If you are concerned about your caravan or lodge, please contact your park manager. If this is unsuccessful, NACO members can utilize our Advice Team for further support and guidance.
