I use 1 of these on the downhill side when using the Lynx Levelers: Save at RV Partscenter - RV Parts and Supply

When the hitch cleared the ball the TT started turning side ways and slid off the lego blocks. No one was hurt and no damage. I checked the X chocks and they were still tight. The wife said the wheels on the lego blocks did not turn when they slid off the blocks. I will not use lego blocks under wheels again and as other have posted I will use ground chocks along with the X chocks.
I think I will add the ground chocks, too. I wonder if you would have gotten better results if you had removed the equalizer bars before leveling it with the blocks. I REALLY have to jerk on my bars to get them off, and I wonder if that is what moved your camper sideways.

After leveling side to side with boards, I was taught the trailer chocks were the first things on the trailer (before you disconnect completely) and the last things off when you break camp.

I forgot to add I was in very deap pea gravel. This may have contributed to the slipage. It is possible that removing the Equalizer bars before the hitch cleared the ball contributed to this. But I have done this about 40 times with no problems, but having said that it only takes one instance for a set of circumstances to cause a problem. We live, we learn, and we move on.

When told she was pregnant, the coed said, "I don't understand. I've done that hundreds of times this month and I never got pregnant before!"
