Slippery

We were camping in Shipshewana, Indiana last Spring when a fast moving storm came through. Most the campers went to the laundry room. It was a sideways rain type of storm, maybe lasting 15 minutes. I had put blocks under the leveling jacks and the hitch jack of our Grey Wolf 25RB . When we returned, the wild had spun our trailer on the blocks (yes, we had wheel choks too) a few inches and the tongue jack plate was almost off the block. I had to rehitch and adjust. From now on, I use a wood block under the hitch jack!

Been using them for years and haven't had any issues with them.

2 sets here, and sometimes use all of them for both under the wheels, tongue jack, and stab jacks. I also carry some wood blocks of different sizes for misc. uses.

I also have 1 of the Lynx Leveler wheel chocks.....that works well, also.

We have two sets and will be purchasing one, if not two more sets. There was a spot last year where we had to dig down on one side to get it level and we had used all of them on the other side. They work great! Much easier to store than wood planks. And how do you know how many pieces of wood you'll need? This way you can build it up by 1" increments until you're level.

Is there a load limit? Maybe that's what I'll include on my Christmas list.

Wow, seems like lots 'o positive experience with these, and few drawbacks. Looks like a set is going on my next Wal-Mart list. Thanks everyone!

We have two sets of 8. They are used under the wheels, front jack, and the stabilizers. There are times when I wish I had just one more set of 8. I can't think of one bad thing to say Bout them. They work as advertised.

They show class A motor homes using the on their website (marketing I know) and I can't find a specified weight limit. I wouldn't use them with a semi truck, but I would imagine any rv would be fine. Put em on your list...

A couple of sets are standard equipment, but I still carry some 2x6s and a 6x6 block for the tongue jack.

The tongue without a foot will cut into the Lynx Levelers, so you need a board on top if using Lynx Levelers. I will also use a board on top of the Lynx Levelers at my stab jacks, as the Lynx Levelers have an uneven surface.
