Wheel Chock/Leveler

I have a 2010 FR Solera 24S with dual wheels on the back. Thinking about getting Anderson Camper Wheel Chock and Leveler. Do I need one for each of the four back wheels or can you just use two? New to having dual wheels.

With dual wheels always remember, never use any lifting device on one tire. Ramps, etc. must be placed on both dual wheels.

Just to make sure I understand correctly. I have single axle with two wheels on each side so I will need four wheel chocks/levelers

Unless you can find two that are real wide you WILL NEED FOUR.

yes, always use 4, or the entire weight will be supported by only two tires, likely damaging the sidewalls and increasing the risk of a blowout.

we've had good results using Lynx Levelers ( the orange blocks ).

X3 on the this information, although when I was on the fire dept. we would put the rear duels up on ramps to chain them up in the Winter for snow. We would put the ramp under the inside duels and chain up the outside tires. IN some cases we would have the trucks up like this for several days and it didn't do any harm. Don't know if there is a difference between the two types of vehicles?

I use 3. The situations I have found are low in the front (use 2) and low on a side (use 3). Of course you could have a low in the back calling for for 4.
