I originally came to this forum to learn how to re-level my manufactured home,
expecting to find concrete rather than abstract suggestions from the "experts".
I am disappointed...
It is self-evident that the releveling of a manufactured home is HARD work, and
to reiterate this truth is nothing short of procryptic rhetoric designed to divert
the question. Moreover, the poster's skill level ( or absence thereof) is not the
issue for debate or consideration since the poster will surely know his/her own
capabilities. I am a carpenter, electrician, and plumber, but it is not necessary for me to confide this to you for you to be able to answer my questions about
house leveling, a subject about which I know virtually nothing-- if I did I would
not be here in the first place!
Everyone who has ever purchased a manufactured home realizes that the
instruction "manual" is better put to use as toilet paper than legitimate
instructions for the leveling of ones home.
It is also pretty much universally known by manufactured home owners that
the distributor from which the home was purchased has only one overriding
interest: make the sale and get the customer out of the office; details of
dissatisfaction can later be placed on the compaint merry-go-round. Within
this same vein, the typical commercial home re-levelers ( at least in my
area) are basically little more than scam artists who charge a premium for
their efforts and offer ill-advised and shoddy workmanship in return.
What would REALLY be instructive here is some solid, practical, and
technical answers to the questions posted by the owners. For instance:
what type of jacks to use and their typical placement and operation. An
explanation of the construction, calibration, and use of a water level; some
idea about what point of reference is to be used for measurement when
the re-leveling process is being set up; and other relevant information of this type.
It is assumed that the purpose of this forum is to provide useful information, not
a library referral/ sales service or an opportunity for egotistical posturing.
