Another camper took 'em off.....they're Lippert brand, the same thing has been out a few years now....I put a new motor on 'em, as the original one was gone. this set was deemed junk, but one mans junk is another's gold....OC had a few days in straightening them and reinforcing the legs. Google 'em, they're out there!

X-Chocks totally solved our jiggles.

I've looked online for x chocks and can't seem to find the ones I've seen on campers. What's a good brand? The ones I've seen online cost around $100 for a pair. Does that sound right? Plus, my Rockwood has a small space between the tires....much smaller than my old Sundance 5th wheel. I'm not sure standard x chocks will fit.

X-Chock is the brand. I got mine on Amazon. Here's a link for a pair of them with the wrench for $68:

By the way...they will work fine on your Rockwood. Before we got our Wildwood we had a Rockwood Mini-Lite which had very little space between the tires. You just wind them all the way in and they'll fit perfectly. No problem.

As I mentioned in a prior post, the standard X-Chocks will fit. The distance between the wheels/tires is very close but if you wind them tightly together with the wrench, you can get them in between.
