Not always possible, especially on the more "regimented" sites where everything has to be in neat rows all facing in a particular direction. (The sort of sites we try to avoid) With a bit of forethought runaways are easily avoided. Chock the wheels before detaching from the car, don't move the car until all the steadies are down, and do the same in reverse when moving off. Much easier to level a caravan fore and aft rather than side to side anyway.

You are right of course Romany, but as they say you can't legislate for stupid. That 1% will get it wrong whatever, and they probably won't listen to any advice anyway. In all probability hardly any of those manuals got read. They are all written for someone else, aren't they?
