Everyone has their own challenges in dealing with poorly designed dump stations. I have never seen anyone using leveling jacks to compensate for slope. If I were in line behind somebody taking up time trying to get the last drop out I would not be very pleased.

I often have to wonder if the designer of the dump area has ever seen a RV let alone used one. Dumps are often anything but level. They slope forward. They slope to the rear. They slope left & right. They are put in a turn making it difficult if not impossible to get where your discharge close to the dump. Not everyone has the same system with detatchable hoses. Some have a system where the hose is permanently connected & additional hose cannot be used.
