I still use the lynx blocks, with the closeness of the axles, I didn't want to cut the andersons blocks, just to have something different. My side to side hopkins level is on the back flat surface of the TT because of the V nose and the front to back level is between the axles on the awning side. I find with two slides on one side that it is necessary to have the slide side of the TT, 1 1/2" higher before I decouple, so that when the slides are extended the TT shifts back to level. Then you have to resnug the stabilizers. I don't think there is any way to get the shake out of the trailers with the torque flex axles short of a magic wand

Do the torque flex axles pose a problem over non-torque flex? We are looking at buying a trailer with the torque flex axles.

I have what you call torque flex axles and it is rock solid when I put down the electric stab jacks installed in front of the axles.

A special alum bracket could be fabricated to fit the nose of your V nose trailer without much difficulty.

You would think they could manufacture a leveling system on the hybrids. Even some sort of bubble level installed on the exterior would be better than trying to put stick on levels which always fall off on mine. I don't want to drill screws in the trailer.

Nice! Wouldn't even need the goggles on to see that beast.

I don't know of any RV manufacturers that makes a HTT/TT with a factory leveling system.
