Before I get pounded by someone who knows more about camping than me, I'm just asking the question for my own knowledge.
Where I camp at I have had to put boards on both sides to get level two times last year

Wouldn't that be "Lifting" instead of "Leveling" when you start adding material under both sides?

What I wasn't getting about the Original Post was if your camper is two inches out of level then why would you be adding under both sides at any point to level it? IF your only goal is to "Level" it. Seems to me adding anywhere besides under the low side is just counter productive.

Call me Lazy, but I like to think of myself as Logical. I'm not gonna add something under both sides to Level my unit. To each his own. That is what makes sitting around a campground entertaining is seeing all the different ways people go about trying to accomplish the same thing.

I might see the need to do both sides if the ground is soft and you want to increase the footprint to minimize the sinking.

Now that I will agree with. Bigger Footprint makes total sense. Just couldn't see it from a "Leveling" standpoint.

Well I'm new at this and I know last year at one place I had to place some boards under both sides of my camper to get it right. And I would like to just use the leaving blocks I seen at camping world. That would be better than hauling around 3-4 boards 6foot or so long. Not every camping spot is level. I was told by my dealer the only way to leavel my camper is by putting stuff under the tires. Not to use jacks at all. I am going to use xchocks this year too. The guy beside me was camping for 15 years and said they tried to give him the spot I was in. But he has a lot of trouble with it the year before. So he didn't want it.

You are correct - Never use the jacks for leveling; they are there to "stabilize" the unit. The X-Chocks work well. We carry one (treated) 2x8x4 to level - 4' is long enough to span boat wheels. We use the leveling blocks for the stabilizing jacks.
