I thought that was how you did it, but you know, I just had to ask. Hope you had at least a little chuckle. I'll bet that there is at least one other person out there who wanted to know & I really don't mind getting a little egg on my face.
Thanks for sharing.

We went to an RV show this spring. All the trailers were on a concrete floor. We noticed that the trailers with X chock didn't jiggle nearly as much as the trailers with standard chocks.

I just ordered x chock from Amazon. Will have on Thursday. I'm sure it will make a difference.

I use the little yellow plastic chocks. Keep them. They work fine. (Use them in addition to X-chocks.)

What I recommend is a rubber mallet for pounding them in tight and knocking them loose again. Rubber mallets of sufficient quality for this job are about $3 - $5.

On edit: I have one "t'ween the wheels chocking device"... just one. (Weird, I know) and I use it on the slide out side.

Great. That's what I planned. Like the suggestion about X on slide out side.

When I park in my drive the slope causes me to have to put the front end up about 10 inches to level it. I'm using layers of 2X12 pine, but I'd welcome any suggestions.

We use x chocks and nothing moves at all.

we have the 21FBRS and we level it and chock the other side. X chock goes on side that is on levelers.

We sometimes use the other xchock but it depends if its under the slide and I feel like crawling under. For week long trips we always do i, because it makes things more stable.

The Anderson levelers eliminate the need for addition chocks.

I use pressure treated 4"x4" cut at an angle. I have read stories on another board of the plastic yellow chocks being pancaked by the trailer.
I also did the homemade version of the chocks between the wheels with a long threaded bolt and 4"x4".
