I find it interesting that those Lynx guys can't even bother to put the dimensions of their product on their web page. Do you use the "cap"
as well? Seems like your tires wouldn't be well-supported without the cap.

I have always used 6' 2x6 for leveling side to side. I would love to stop carrying the boards. To those that do use the Lynx levelers... Do you use 2 sets on a tandem axle? (one set if needed per tire or do you just raise one wheel for the weekend?)
Do you find them as effective at leveling as boards or compromise for the saved space?
TIA,
crunchman

We have 2 sets and rarely use them. If we do, I usually put down a 6' pc of composite decking and then put the Lynx blocks on the board especially if the ground is soft as the Lynx blocks will sink in the ground.

I wrote a quick "how to level" for my sister and included a bit about wood vs. Lynx Levelers:
RV Leveling/Lynx Levelers vs. wood

The long and short of it- I use and carry both. I love that they interlock and I can more easily drive up on them.

I don't use the caps for the lynx leveled and haven't really ever felt like I was missing something.

I have had a couple of occasions where they have sunk into the soft dirt and were hard to get back out.

Nice review, thank you

Thanks OC, I had not thought of them sinking.

I use the "Leggo" blocks but also carry several 12x12x2 pressure treated boards for use under the Leggo blocks.

I lost a few of the plastic blocks when they sunk into soft dirt; then froze solid into the ground in the morning. Unable to chop them out, and needing to leave, I was forced to abandon them. Now I put the wood down first.

Level-It

I posted these “Level-It”, leveling wedges maybe 6 months ago with the name and someone replied that they could not find them with a Google search. I have seen products that look similar to these but I don’t have the info, sorry.
I saw a post regarding stability and maybe that was in reference to the Andersen Leveling… Mine are extremely stable and do well in everything but sand. I read posts about X-Chocks and don’t think I will ever need them, I just don’t wobble much. I use these wedge levelers, chock tires on opposite side, four stabilizers and front jack, very minimal wiggel.
One caution is distance between wheels(double axle). My old camper(93’Terry ) I had barely enough space to put one between, in soft ground(tires would sink) I would have to knock the wedge in between. My new TT is fine, axles are further apart and never have an issue.
Good Luck
John

I like the Lynx blocks because there lite, a few cheap cutting boards from the dollar store keeps them from sinking in the sand.

No shortage of creative ideas on this forum! Yes, those indestructible plastic cutting boards - avoids that heavy lumber again!
