Leveling dual axle trailer anyone like the Andersen leveler system?

So my first time having to level my new dual axle trailer was very interesting. (Used to have single axle trailer?) After much trial and error and a very helpful fellow camper I was able to get mt travel trailer almost level! I Had to use the yellow blocks 4 under each tire and I ran out. Anyway it worked for the weekend but now I'm looking at my options so I'm prepared in the future. I have read reviews for the Andersen leveler. Has anyone used this system that can tell me how they work?

I use 2 pieces of 2x6
The second piece about 6" longer than the first wich is cut the a few inches more than the distance between the 2 tires.
The second piece is longer to create like a ramp for when the 2 pieces thickness is needed for levelling.
Very easy, cheap and simple !

RV Leveling Blocks, 10 pack - Rook Industries D10-246 - Chocks & Levelers - Camping World

We use two packs of these, used the wood before, but this weighs less, and takes up less space in the storage compartments.

I carry 3 packs of Lynx blocks. But reading reviews of folks on here of the Andersen leveler- people seem to like it. A few have had to snip the tip off for close tires/axles.

I use the Anderson Levelers and like them a lot. They level and chock at the same time. I had to cut a tip on one of mine and don't miss the lego blocks one bit.

X3.... Just used mine for the first time this past weekend, also had to take about 3/4 of an inch off due to proximity to 2nd axle. DW loved them cuz she didn't have to keep using the trial and error method with the Lynx blocks.
They're keepers in my book!

Those things are huge!! Where do you store them and how do you get the tires onto both of them?

I'm using the Anderson levelers and love them. Just place and start moving the trailer. Once I put the wedge chocks under them and relaxed the trailer they were solid as a rock. Highly recommended.
