I have been using the Andersen Levelers for a while now(I am the one that signed up with them as a distributor to buy them cheaper) I did have to cut one just a little to fit between my axles. It was quick and easy. I find them very easy and quick to level my rig. I will never go back to anything else. Takes up almost no space and now I never have to pull on boards/blocks only to find out that I am not level.....and pull off/on again. I pull on once until level and set....

With a tandem axle, you are supposed to use 2 Andersons, one on each tire on the same side. Am I missing something in your setup?

Thanks.

The Anderson's give you a pretty good size footprint, much larger than the tire.

Don't think they are designed for motor homes, they are much too narrow and too small a radius to fit the large tires.

Thank you Mr. OC. Used to own a Prowler TT 19' about 20 years ago. Got away from using it and sold it due to medical issues. Now I'm retired and wife is getting ready to, just purchased a "previously owned" MH and there's much that is familiar to me and much that is not. Sorry, not trying to hijack the thread. Thanks for your response.

I swear by my X-chocks... and I use them on both sides. It took 2 tries to get them bought though, on my grey wolf the wheels are spaced apart wider than normal, so I had to return 1st purchase and get a different set... but now I'm good.

I carry lots of blocking with me and some 2X10 chunks about 5' long

Don't like carrying all that wood. Just too heavy & takes up too much space, but to each his own. That's why they make so much stuff to do the same job.
