Do you use anything under your Lippert Auto Levelers?

Just curious if you use anything like the lego blocks or wood under your legs? I have to say it was great to push one button and the trailer leveled itself... But the one leg came up with an error as it ran out of stroke.. Now the trailer is level enough for me and the DW but I was curious if putting a 2x8 or some lego blocks under foot would give it a bit more wiggle room since we have been on some pretty bad sites and this is actually pretty good. Did not know if this would be a good idea or if the trailer jacks would just crush the legos (I think not but I figured I'd ask!).

We use Lynx blocks under ours. Multiples in a stack on uneven spots. No problems, works good.

Have the TT level system on my camper and had same issue last time out. RR was 'out of stroke" I had left the "lego" blocks at home, thankfully had a piece of 2x10 that I had in back of truck, lego blocks went back in camper.....

I'm in that boat right now.
Checked my floor with a level app on my phone and it's close enough for me... I'll be buying some Lego blocks this winter.
This is our last trip until spring

I was at a site once where one leg would go all the way out and not hit the ground. I did not get an error code or msg. I built some blocks 1 foot on each side out 2x4's on edge covered with osb board on each face. this gives be about 5". they work just fine and are not too heavy. put a rope handle on them to make them easy to carry.

I use home made wooden blocks 95% of the time.

Thank you all. I have three bags of the Lynx blocks... Sitting at home... We had them for the 6 stab jacks on our Grey Wolf. Guess I will be putting a bag or two back into the truck! I will say though, this trailer is SOLID. Not even a rock in it when moving around.

We had a little bounce tonight with three little girls excited to be camping.
It really is solid though

As long as the lot is close to flat it's great.
