youroo..... i am usually very good and figuring out how something works but your system has me stumped. Pull past level on one, then slide the other in place and level out?

guys, believe me, i hate boards, REALLY want the andersons, but i am by no means rich lol. yes sure i have the money but try to stick to somewhat of a budget but have already gone way past this year on the camper mod/accessory budget.

but on a good note someone has messaged me with a used set of andersons at a great price so, this weekend will be boards (maybe just the old short ones) and soon i will have used andersons.

I can look at the bubble and usually judge how many blocks I need to make it level.

So you make the DW carry the boards back and forth.

Pretty easy mod with a table saw and a belt sander. Took all of 30 minutes and it is permanent.
