I have a large level installed on my pin box. It lets me know how many inches and on what side they need to go. If I read the level correctly, I can usually level in one go.

If it has been a long day, I have been known to put the blocks on the wrong side. Boy, is that immediately obvious.

Just got my pair of Anderson levelers. Has anyone drilled the hole through at the top to attach a rope for a handle?

I thought about it, but haven't gotten around to doing it. They are extremely slick and hard to hold on to.

I've cut two inches off one already and still can't fit it between the two tires...I am worried by cutting off more it won't work right. Any ideas?

Cut the back side bottom on a 45° to within 1/4" of the big hole.

They look nice but at min. $80 a pair I'll stick with my PT boards. Shipping them up here to Canada would add another $50 (plus brokerage fees). Buying them up here will run you $180 per pair! Too steep for me (pun intended)!

itat: I was thought the same and was pointed to The Hitch Warehouse in Red Deer Alberta. $48.99 each, you'll need 2 and add some other gewgaw (RV'ers can always find some gewgaw to buy) to bring it over $125 and get free shipping.

Bought a set last week on Amazon 44.95 ea. I was lucky they fit between the tires. Will try them at the end of the month. I use the Lego blocks now. The Anderson levelers just looked like it would be faster to get level. We will see.

AND...if you screw it up trying, write Andersen and complain - they are sending me a replacement set becuse chopping off the front did not work for me either - when my new set comes in, I am gonna do it the "OC way"

Hey Lou....

I LIKE the way you have the level mounted! I bought one of those from Amazon and the darn thing would not fit on my Reese the way the instructions said to mount it.

I am wondering if it will work mounted higher like you did yours.

Any Reese Revolutions folks out there you know of that have one of these mounted on their rig?

(6 Actual will give ya a hug if we can mount this...she HATES that level-tango as she calls it )
