I use Anderson Levelers with an 8,000 lb trailer with no issues. Never broken one. Read and follow the instructions and you shouldn't have any issues.

The wedge can be a lot smaller for a single axle unit, but it works for both. I carry an 18" long x 6" high wedge made out of 5/4" x 6" pressure treated deck wood and a plastic chock for my current single axle unit.
It is what we use as well. A lot cheaper than 40 + dollars a pop per wheel. I would not feel real comfortable just using on a dual wheel set up.

camper leveler $80 + tax and shipping
2 x 6 cut into short pieces $5.

i also cary two short 1 x 6s. after a few times camping you can pretty much judge how high the RV needs to go by the level's bubble. I would also suggest you use the floor in your RV to level it, not your bumper as the two may not be the same.

Although the Anderson levelers are really great lego blocks, 2X6, or what have you are far cheaper. After leveling a few times you'll get the hang of it and it becomes real quick. We put a 2 foot level inside the door of our 5th wheel and take a look at the bubble, can never depend on the back bumper but could work for you, judging the bubble on the level determines how many lego blocks or 2X6's we'll need, after a few times you'll get the hang of it and be pretty close most of the time. After leveling if the bubble is within the lines of the level but not exactly in the middle don't sweat the small stuff, pull a chair out and enjoy the outdoors.

Depending on the weight of your trailer, you could use this:

BAL - Innovative Products for the RV Industry

I used this, when I had a PopUp. It is rated at 1750lbs (total trailer weight of 3500lbs). They are fairly easy, don't take up a lot of room and can replace a stack of blocks and a set of chocks.

Levelling blocks and a 2 foot level on the counter. Easy as pie, but it may take a few tries to get the correct height. Then a glass of wine, red.

I would check the level in the fridge. The floor and fridge in mine don't match about a quaternary to half bubble difference between the two, and it's the fridge that really needs to be level.

I use 2x8 about 5 foot long on mine with a wedge made out of a block of oak foot long 8 in high. Overkill I guess
