"More" Andersen Leveler?

Been interested in the Andersen Leveler since I first saw it almost two years ago on a single axle Casita. At that time I was using and very satisfied with the BAL Leveler on our Casita, but that was then and now we have a Micro Lite 25KS. Have read many of the posts here about the A-L, most from last year, and have just made an order for two. I do understand I'll need to cut it to make it fit between my tires. .....My question is, has anyone been disappointed with the Andersen Leveler after the newness has rubbed off and you're using it in a real world application, or are you still happy with it? Has it ever failed to be satisfactory in any way? Have read somewhere that it tends to slide on hard pavement. Has anyone discarded it and gone back to their previous method of leveling or even something newer? I'm anxious to give them a try, but I do know sometimes things don't always turn out to be as good as advertised.

I purchased 2 sets of the levelers and used them 3x already. No complaints and makes leveling a breeze. I've read some posts where owners just pull their trailer directly off the levelers causing them to break or shatter when leaving. With this in mind, I pull slighlight forward just enough to remove the small chalk and then back off the levels the way I pulled the trailer on them. This way I know they won't shatter or break.

Besides that process I love them. No more guessing if I need 2, 3 or 4 BAL Leveler blocks to level the trailer. Wish these were invented 10 years ago...

You will be happy... Hope this helps..

Another vote for them. 10,000# 5er and no problems at all.I always back on them and use the chock.When we break camp,I back up and remove chock and then drive forward,pull them out and finish tear down and packing.

Still love ours... Sometimes I think the chock part does not do as well as a chock but over all I am loving them. I did jot have to cut mine to fit.

I like them as well. I've used them on a sloped paver driveway and there is no hint of them wanting to slide. Click image for larger version

No, NOT a disappointment! I removed all the stepper boards I had made for the trailer and used prior... No much easier now!

How do they work on soft ground or gravel?

They worked well for me, they are pretty wide and flat so act like a snow show. NOt sure about soft as in sand... But dirt and gravel they were fine.
