1.7.3 (no mods)
1.8.1 (no mods)

While testing another bug I found the following for the RoveMax M1-F Rover wheels:
1. If the wheels are folded in 1.7.3 and then saved (F5) and then loaded again (F9) the rover doesn't fall into the terrain/get destroyed
2. If the wheels were folded in 1.7.3 and then saved and then the same quicksave is loaded in 1.8.1 the rover doesnt fall into the terrain/get destroyed but if the wheels are deployed then folded again within 1.8.1 it will fall into the terrain/get destroyed.
3. If the wheels are folded in 1.8.1 and then saved (F5) and then loaded again (F9) the rover falls into the terrain

I'm not seeing it happen much, trying it with a M1-F version of a space center science rover I recently used to deploy science around KSC. When I deplyed that science (in the first of the three central green areas not part of any section closest to the SPH) it was deployed maybe 1/5 of the units under ground. Going back to check that area to test M1-F wheel retraction I noticed that they are now on the ground. I tried retracting the wheels in a few places around KSC and it slightly levitated but did not go under ground. The only time I saw it go underground is the top of the wheel after flipping the rover going too fast around a curve. I tested the science deploy again next to the others and this time they were levitating a bit, as were the previous ones (that I hadn't noticed driving by). The kerbals also levitated slightly; I didn't notice them sinking the last time but maybe they did. It seems like something is changing where is considered ground level and not just restricted to this part.

Issue confirmed on PC build 2788. Vehicles with RoveMax M1-F Rover Wheels set to "retracted" are destroyed when loading a quicksave in flight mode.

Ok to explain this:

1. If I load the quicksave I supplied with this on 1.10.0 it is all good.

2. If I load the quicksave and then extend and retract the screen/rover starts shaking and if I try to quicksave it complains with "Cannot Quicksave while about to crash"

Nearly there guys, but not quite.
