So how do you fellow 5er's level your rig sid to side?

We used to own a Class C and used wood blocks to drive the rig upon as needed to level the coach from side to side. More or less on the side that needed leveling. Now we have 5th wheel....how do you level side to side?

Same idea. I personally use the plastic interlocking leveling blocks, but anything stable and solid will work

2x 2x8x enough length to span both tires. So far all I have needed in 4 years with the 5th wheel

Same here with all the trailers we have owned over the years I use 2x8x14 to 2x12x14 scraps... They are cheap & don't care if the get lost...... I do usually use the same number under each wheel but not always. Side to side level, chock, unhook then do front to back. Then the stabilizers..... I did break down & bought X clocks this year had just been using 4x6s cut at an angle
