I've used this method for 3 yrs, because it eliminates guessing(trial and error),...... but since the tt's are 8' wide(or at least mine is), using a 6' level doesn't give a 1 to 1 ratio for determining how much the low side needs to be raised,..... meaning, if it shows level on a 6' level when using one block, it won't be level across the width of an 8' tt if you use the same thickness of that one block under the tires on the low side,...... there is a ratio that has to be determined if using anything less than the full tt width, which is 8',..........
so using an 8' level would show a 1 to 1 ratio, meaning it would show the exact height to raise the low side, but anything less than an 8' level would require determining what that ratio is, to be exact on your height....... I use a 2' level, which is an easy 4 to 1 ratio for a 8' wide tt, meaning if a 1/4" block makes my 2' level level, then I know that I need to raise the low side 1",....... very simple and exact, no trial and error,... lets me know how high to stack boards, or pads, or how far to roll up on my Andersen Leveler a predetermined distance, to get the correct height,......... works great, first time, every time, no guessing,......
