Well, everyone has an opinion and we all know what they say about opinions so I won't go there. We have X-Chocks and they work well for us. I have seen the Roto Chocks and they do look very nice and would obivously work well too. I do not for one minute believe my X-Chocks would loosen as the tires cooled and if they did they were not put in properly to start with. When we setup camp I put a set of standard wedge chocks in until the trailer is leveled then put the XChocks in and lock them.

I have used Rotochoks for about 10 years now on two different trailers. Very satisfied. When we changed trailers, the spacing was different between the tires and I did not have to order a new set, I just gave them a call with my new specs and ordered replacement tire wedges.

According to the instructions, the Rotochoks are the first things on, when pulling in and the last things off when pulling out. THat way, the unit is locked in place right away and can't go anywhere until you actually pull out.

By my observation, the add a huge amount to the stability of the rig when parked. I assume the other wheel locks like the X-chocks do the same, something that the ground chocks don't do.

Don't use chocks, but the Bal Locks are in place and tightened before I unhook the truck. Never had a Bal Lock loosen due to tire pressure either.
