I like the x-chocks, just have to wait to get the trailer to measure the spread between my tires.

Yes, chalk the other tires as well.

Think about it, more is better.

What will keep the other side from moving?

Kind of depends on your rig. Our old trailer had a wheel on the front jack so if I didn't chock the sides opposite of the levelers the trailer wanted to spin off of them. My current trailer couldn't do that because the jack has a foot pad instead of a wheel. However, the torque is still there so I always chock the opposite side to keep from using the front jack as a holding point. Of course once you get the wedges under there you're probably safe but what the heck. Chocks can also add a little stability if they're in snug.

You may have to do like some forum members did, and cut the chocks at an angle so they will fit (this is even recommended on the Anderson site)

Those that use the Andersen Levelers.........

Flymhi I might be willing to do an equal trade. I believe I have the extended ones but need the regular ones. I will know for sure this weekend when I pick my unit up from storage. I got a new camper in the fall and I think the spacing narrower than the last unit I had

"Ditto" and I just add X chocks to reduce TT movement while inside. They work great and makes it much easier to level.

Like some others, I level with Andersens, then put X-chocks on both sides. May be overkill, but trailer has never moved.
