OK I guess I need to watch the video...I don't get how the anderson levelers work in "one step"
For us, we get on site, look at the hitch level, pull out the appropriate blocks, put 1 in between our wheels and 2 on rear wheel, back up a foot, insert another block between tires, back up another foot, DONE!
Takes about 3 min to level. This is the hitch level we use:

I use these:
Amazon.com: Camco 44505 Leveling Blocks - 10 pack: Automotive
I covered the top & bottom of the leveling blocks and bolted them to the jack pads to keep from breaking them on gravel. Have since painted them black.

I think I hear your momma calling you. I wonder how you did it?

p.s. You're just too lazy and too tight to buy a can of paint and paint them!

I have the Anderson levelers and they work great. My daughter is in charge of putting them down when we park takes just a few minutes to get leveled from side to side.

They look easy to level but do you consider the chocks sufficient to keep the trailer from moving?
