Use a Board to Lift the Lower Side
You should always have leveling boards handy. If you go camping often these are probably part of your essentials. These boards must be at least 2 inches thick. You should place the boards under the tires on the lower side. This will help to level your trailer. You may need to use several boards. Add as many boards as needed to level the trailer.
Watch Your Wheels
