Oh, I right clicked and realize it's a coffee machine. IF I listen to Humteddy, I'll need that! But I like my 'yuppie coffee' via the Keurig. I like all them foo foo flavored coffees!
Read some info on the Goshen Rally about unlevel pad areas and how folks wished they'd hade more chocks or stuff........and the X chocks has been on my list because of a thread a few months ago, and I thought they looked useful. I probably would not get them right off, just something on my possibles list, if needed.
I'm sorta tickled with myself! ha. There isn't a long list of "Hey, dufus, you forgot X and Y and Z".......like there was when we got the first trailer!
Maybe I'm actually learning a little bit.
OK; I am on my third 5er and the first one with the LCI 6-point auto leveling system.
With my other two 5er's I did need the X-chocks to eliminate rocking of the 5er when parked. The front two power stabilizers and the two manual stabilizers were not enough to prevent motion when walking. Now with the 6-point LCI auto system the x-chocks they redundant.
First you need to lower the front legs and support them with some type of blocking depending on ground type; IE dirt/gravel or concrete. Next step is to place some type of wheel chocks to prevent roll back when you un-hitch. You than un-hitch and drive away the next step is to hit the auto level and let the trailer level itself placing support pads under all legs. When the trailer is auto leveling the wheels on the trailer will move a little, this is natural thing that happens. Now when the trailer is level on dirt/gravel one set of tires could be off the ground when you are on dirt/gravel. The X-chocks will not help. I have a set in my basement at my stick house collecting dust know.
As far as the extension cord for a 50 AMP system it is a waste of money. Why my DW checks to see that the trailer power cord will reach the pedestal before we un-hitch. The trailer can be reposition to make sure the standard power cord will reach.
What you also need is a multimeter and know how to use this before connecting to the power pedestal. With a cheap circuit tester included in your tool kit. I also carry a box of vinyl disposable gloves when working around the waste system.
