Leveling blocks.

Ok we got to go camping about 5 times last year do to our camper being delivered later then we was told. I carried 3 2*6 boards around to level with. This year I was going to try the square stack blocks. My question is if you have to put some under all 4wheels how do you chock the wheels?

There may be something simple about this that my Simplistic Mind isn't seeing, but if you're "Leveling" with them why would you ever have some under all four wheels?

Before I get pounded by someone who knows more about camping than me, I'm just asking the question for my own knowledge.

Evidently my mind is just as simplistic as yours Ashley. Any way, like youroo said, leveling blocks one side, x-chocks other.

I carry 4 2x6's in my pass thru storage, and I use them under the low side tires only as needed to level. I have 2 sets of the leveling blocks, but I use them under the stablilizers and also under the steps if I have enough. I usually throw a couple 6x6 blocks in the back of the pickup also just in case.

Has anyone tried the Anderson levelers? I know this has been addressed many times, but every one I talk to that use them say they are the cat's meow. Whole lot less to carry with you & take up less space & much lighter than the wooden boards we all have carried.

Mainly because we found them left at a campground, we carry two sets of the orange leveling blocks. If we are not using them under the tires or the tongue wheel, we can use them under our supply of firewood, or under the bag of charcoal, to keep those things off the damp ground. (We go to FS campgrounds a lot, so this can be an issue.)

I still carry 1" x 8" (by 12") boards (about 12 or so) to level and sometimes to place under stabs. I have the Andersen lift, but haven't tried it yet... But, no matter how its blocked up or lifted, the BaL X-chock wil work. The make different models, depending on how far apart the tires are.

What would be the problem with putting X-chocks on both sides?
