Triple axle leveling side to side

I am asking for a buddy that just bought SOB 5er TH, without the high end level up system.
He made his first trip using boards under the tires.
So, How do you level your triple axel?

Thanks

I meant for Wobbles' friend. Support/lift all 3 tires on each side.

I use the Anderson drive on auto level wheel chocks. Real easy to use even if you are alone. Link is here

We use boards under all tires on low side. Okay, Let me rephrase that. My husband uses boards. I really need to learn this stuff because I want to go by myself sometimes.

I don't have triple axles, but I have used those anderson camper levelers and they are the best thing ever. Only a couple of cases where I had to have a nice long 2x6 to put under the tires first, then use the levelers on it, due to wet soggy ground.

We have a 2x6 long enough to go under our wheels with 45 angle on the ends.
1) Park where we want to setup.
2) 2 foot level across the floor, measure how much out. (say 3/4 inch)
3) Multiply by 4 will give how much out in the trailer width. (3 inches)
4) Move forward or back and build a 3" tall platform with the 2X6
5) Move the camper up on the platform and install the X-chocks.
Perfect side to side every time. Have even set up on an incline and made the platform level front to back.
Our block collection contains 1/4" to 3 1/2 (4x4s) all cut to the same length to construct whatever we need.
