With a little practice, you'll get a feel for how many boards, how much height, you need under the low side, but check it with a level, too. You can also use those plastic Lynx leveling blocks, generally sold in sets of about 10. The stack together like Legos and make pulling up onto them pretty easy.

I actually trimmed off the tapered end. They still work great. I know others that did the same. We love ours one of the best things we bought
