5 tips for dealing with soft RV park campgrounds

You’ve arrived at your RV park destination and you’re ready to settle in, then suddenly you notice the grounds may be a little too soft for your RVing comfort. It’s a sinking feeling – literally!

This situation happens to RV owners quite often, and can be a bit of a headache to deal with if left unattended. The last thing you want on your RV adventure is a unit that’s sinking into the ground. To help alleviate this potentially sinking situation, we put together five tips for dealing with soft RV park campgrounds.

Keep these five tips in mind for your next RV trip, and be prepared for uneven and soft campgrounds with our original Tri-Lynx RV leveling system!

1. Try your best to avoid grass

It’s no surprise that RVs don’t do their best sitting on top of soft soil. Usually, it will take some serious support under the wheels to prevent your unit from sinking into a soft surface. This is particular the case with grassy areas. The soil under the grass is very soft and loves to absorb moisture, so if it begins to rain, your surface is going to get even softer.

2. Don’t stay put for too long

Moving your RV can be a bit of a hassle, but this could help prevent it from sinking. If you find yourself unexpectedly dealing with soft campgrounds and you aren’t prepared, do your best to move your RV to another spot before it sinks too deep. If it’s just a short trip, then you might be okay with staying in one spot for the duration of your visit. However, if you’re planning on staying for a while, you’ll want to make sure you move.

3. Use leveling blocks

A concrete pad is next to impossible to bring along for an RV trip, but leveling blocks can offer some relief for dispersing the weight of your RV on a soft surface. Lynx Levelers are an excellent option!

Based on their open design, Lynx Levelers, unlike other leveling blocks or wood, will immediately give you the indication that the ground is too soft to park on rather than your having to wait until the next morning to find out. They can easily be linked together and placed beneath your RV’s tires. Plus, they’re durable, water resistant, and easy to assemble.

Even more good news: with our new 10-year warranty, you can enjoy your Lynx Levelers longer!

4. Keep an eye on the weather

Seeing rain in the forecast isn’t going to help you if your RV is sitting on soft campgrounds. If it rains, the soil will get extra soft and the chances of your RV sinking will begin to rise. If there’s a high chance you’ll be experiencing a lot of rainy weather, then try to prepare yourself as much as possible. If you don’t have any leveling blocks on hand and moving to firmer ground is impossible, try to find some plywood to place your tires on for a short-term solution.

5. Cover the area

You can’t control the weather, but you can do your best to control the moisture that enters the soft ground beneath your RV. Covering a soft ground with heavy plastic sheeting under your unit can save you a lot of sinking troubles if you end up stuck in a heavy downpour.
