To chock or not to chock

Came out of a TT to a Class C. First trip out I found myself chocking the rear wheels. After touring around the CG the C's and A's were not chocking.
Do you chock or just relay on the E brake?

Excellent question. We are making a similar transition (except borrowing parents' TT) and we'd like to know too. Have a 2650S on order. Thanks.

On my Sunseeker I have leveling jacks and I chock the front wheels just in case the jacks should lift the rear wheels off the ground, in which case e brake or park gear would not be effective.

Ha! We were wondering the same thing after trading out TT for a class C this week. Out driveway is a little sloped, so we chocked just in case. Can't hurt...except for our pride if we were wrong.

Thanks to all and DangerCliff, I to have a leveling system and see your point about lifting off the ground. Had not thought about lifting a tire. Chocking seems the right thing to do.
Thanks.
