Andersen Levelers w/ 2015 23IKSS

We used our modified Andersen levelers this past trip and they worked like a charm. Out of the box, they are too long to fit between the tandem axle on my 23IKSS, so I followed some great suggestions from OldCoot and trimmed them down and also notched the corner. The corner notching is the key and eliminates having to trim the narrow end too much.

The site we had was sandy and they sunk a little so I put a piece of plywood down first and then the levelers on top. Worked great and leveling was fast.

Just another example of how grateful rookies like me are of all the great information and tips you all share here.

I did the same thing with mine and they do work like a charm. I only trimmed one of them and not both. Does not effect the integrity of the leveler. I have the same set-up as you with the X chocks. Love them as well.

We have the same trailer. Trying to get the trailer as stable as possible and we are close I think. Do you notice a big difference with the x chocks. We were thinking of getting them,

I used mine for the first time this weekend. My axles are far enough apart that trimming is not needed. These levelers work great!

Do you happen to know how many inches the tires are from each other?

14" at the center of the tires.

I do not understand how these things work? How do you drive onto them? It almost looks like they cup the tires. But how is that possible if one has to drive onto them?

I do find that the X-Chocks make it more stable with front to back rocking. What I'm still trying to figure is a way to help the side to side movement. I've read that you shouldn't tighten the corner stabilizers too much but I'm not sure what "too much" is.
