CHOCKS

Looking for some words of wisdom. I recently went from a Flagstaff "A" frame to a 21FBRS Micro Lite. With the A, I just used kinda flimsy plastic chocks. Now with the double wheel base, I don't feel that comfortable depending on them. I've been considering the "X" chocks for between the tires but a friend of mine with a huge 5th wheel says he doesn't use them.

Can someone help me decide which method is best? The tires on the Micro are pretty close but one set of 'X" I found do contract to a width that I think would work.

Thanks in advance for any input you might have.

Have a 21FBRS & use 1 X-chock on 1 side & regular chocks on other side. Works great for me.

Thanks

That sounds like a good option. Any particular suggestion on the outer chocks? Are yours solid plastic? The ones I have now are hollow/stackable....Like I said, kinda flimsy.

Thanks again for your suggestion.

They are semi-solid plastic & very sturdy; never a problem. I install them between the two tires.

You are more than welcome Loneeagle, glad to help. Also, I have learned a lot by just walking around the campgrounds we stay at & look at what others are doing; lots of very good ideas to look at & folks will usually be more than happy to talk to you about their ideas.
RVers/campers for the most part are great!!!!

youroo
I've seen you post this pic before & it looks really great. But, would you please explain how you get them under both wheels. I know I'm missing something, so please help cause I really like the idea. I know I'm probably going to look a little foolish, but that's OK, it won't be the first time.
Thanks

No problem your a (Honest Person) ,most people PM me for Info! In our case we know how much Lift is needed to be (Level) after we run the slide out (Plus how much more Lift we need for (Uneven Site)! Wife places 1 ramp in Front of the Front tire and I drive Forward the amount needed (PLUS) the over travel needed! Then she places the Rear Ramp behind the Rear Tire and I slowly let the Truck & Trailer roll Back and it Settles into the (Chocked & Lifted) position! We have used this method long enough that SHE knows how far up the 1st ramp for proper Level! Youroo!!
