X-chocks

I've heard others here say that x-chocks help stabilize the TT. So my question is if they are used on one side or both sides?

They are sold in sets unless you have a very wide spread.
If I used them I would do so on both sides.

I use them on both sides. Back in, first step in setup process. When leaving, hitch up last thing to come off.

As the others have said- both.

I've noticed that even Rotochock has gone to selling them as pairs.

I was at the Indianpolis RV show and the guys selling the x-chocks said they only need to be used on one side...he also stated that they are only sold as one per box....looks like he was completely wrong....

X-chocks can still be bought one per box, but they also offer them in sets of two... I went with two, more because I wanted both wheels "chocked." Don't know how much more stability you with two over just one.

Perhaps.

All of the ones I have looked at online and in store are per pair except for the long reach one.
I would guess his outfit does sell them one per box.

For my own use I an more inclined to use a good set of rubber wheel chocks and something like JT's strong arm system.

We purchased a set of x-chocks when we picked up the TT from the dealer. They came as a set of two in the box. They had a pallet load of them on sale.

I use them on both sets of wheels. Use rubber wheel chocks when first unhooking and leveling the trailer. Once it's leveled I put the x-chocks on.

I usually only using them at the campground. Just use the wheel chocks when it's in the driveway.
