I have the Andersens and love 'em. I also use extended X-Chocks to cut down to trailer shake. My X-Chocks came with a warning stating they are NOT to hold the trailer in place, only to reduce trailer shake.

When we had our TT we used the Andersens if needed and the Fastway ONE Steps on the other side. If we didn't need the Andersen we used 2 Fastway's.

We had an issue one time with the xchalks while on a bit of an incline.

I now use OneStep after owning X-Chocks. You still have to added wedge type chocks when using the X-Chocks and you not suppose to put the X-Chocks in after you level and remove them before hook up. Seems like every time I went to remove the wedge chocks I had to more the forward or back to get them out. Now with OneStep I just grab and go. I never felt X-Chocks help all that much nor do I expect the OneStep to work much better.

Kinda Interesting that BAL that makes the X-Chock also makes one similar to the OneStep and BAL makes the same claim with them.

I know from experience that you should still chock the tires opposite the Anderson's. I didn't the first time using them and when I went to leave discovered that the un-chocked side had rolled. Not much ... maybe just an inch or so ... but enough to put strain on the scissor jacks on that side. Now I level with the Anderson's (LOVE 'em) and use regular, cheap yellow chocks on opposite side ..... one each in front of front tire and behind rear tire to control movement in either direction.

I use Anderson revelers on 27 ft Rockwood, pull up on the big rocker wedges, place the chicks provided under the tapered end of the rockets. This Does chock the raised wheels, unless you're all the way to the 3" end. I chock front and back of low side, and also use X Chicks between tires on both sides. Keeps the trailer in.place, and steady.

When you back/pull onto the leveler, place a chock under each leveler as it will be raised off the ground. This causes a cradle for the tires to sit in. Then I put x-chocks on both sides of the trailer

Always take a board alone so you don't butt then in soft ground like I did.

this is how we remove the Andersen Leveler chock piece when I'm ready to come off the AL. When I move forward just a bit to take the weight off the chock, my wife can easily and safely pull both out of the way without having to get down near the tire to remove them. Then I can roll back off the AL. The eye bolts can be put in from either side, depending on which side of the trailer the AL is on. Works great and she stands back away from any danger.

I have the andersen leveler and had to cut about 4" of each, I also put stair step non-slip on each. I have two X-Chock installed to stop the movement.
