Bal x chocks with close axle spacing

Hi folks!

We have a 2109S coming in soon, I want to reduce trailer movement as much as possible, looking to use the Xchocks.

Question is the 2109S has the tires pretty close together, anyone here using the Xchocks with a 2109S or similarly close axle/tire spacing?

Thanks for any/all input!

Yep. Big difference in movement when my little elephant and her friends move around.

There is a regular size and a large size, get the regular size and they will work.
I have a Rockwood 8311WS with very narrow spacing between the tires and they work for me.
Have to close them all the way before they will fit between the tires.

On our '08 Roo and '14 Flagstaff, I used our x-chocks. Initially for the Roo, I elongated the slide holes a bit. Helped immensely in the ability to slide the chocks in between the tires with little effort.

I didn't know that wheel chocks would work on the Starship Enterprise!

No wonder that the warp drive wouldn't kick in!

Couldn't resist...

X-Chokes

I have 2 3/4" between my 14" tires and it works. That is about the smallest gap I would recommend. I see some benefit w/ them on our 27.5' trailer. These do not replace regular wheel chokes. We do have a V-Lite Flagstaff and have decided it will have some movement regardless. Tried slide jacks also, but concerned of damage that would be done if tire goes flat. Jacks to me may have had more benefit, but feel X-chokes are safer. Be sure to install before putting slides out. DUH-done it.

Hi 6CD,

The BAL-X Chocks should do the trick for you. If interested I have an unused pair that I'd like to sell. Below is a link to the classifieds within this forum. The ad says $65 but I'd take $55 plus shipping.
