Leveling blocks

What system do people find to be the best for leveling a TT. Iím looking at a revo leveler and wondering if it is worth it and also what blocks people like to use.

I like the bag of stacking orange "lego" blocks sold at Walmart for $35. I back into my spot, look at calibrated level I installed on the front of the camper, and put the appropriate number of blocks behind the low side tire. I then back on to the blocks, chock the wheels, and I'm done leveling side-to-side.

I usually put at least one orange block, with a small piece of 3/4" plywood on top, under the tongue jack to avoid putting the jack end into the ground, and reducing jack cranking. If I still have left over blocks, I put them under the stabilizer scissor jacks to reduce the amount of travel of the stabilizers.

All very simple, but I have a small A-frame. I don't want a bulky, heavy solution.

We use the orange lynx levelers for side to side. We tried wood boards but they slip too easy. I have two milk crates with boards for under the stabilizers. I think the stabilizers are more sturdy when not out too far. If you use boards under tires for left to right be sure to cut them short. Actually short boards are good for under stabilizers as well. Long boards can stand up and damage your camper. I got that advice online years ago when we first bought our TT. I have seen two sets of dump plumbing ripped off with long boards.

I use the Andersen Levelers mostly but carry a bag of orange stack levelers. The Andersen Levelers are quick and easy.

Anderson levelers all the way! But still always bring 2 bags of the LEGO blocks since that is what we started with. They are great under the stabilizers. Anderson’s are super quick and easy.

X3.

I have u bolts with a vertical welded on to put on the bumper. Some holes in the boards to go over the "stud". Stack them and go.

Bose04,

Check to make sure that the Anderson levelers are not too long if you buy them - the Camco levelers are a shorter option for tight wheel configurations.

Hope this helps.

Happy trails,

CTSS

I got a 6-inch Fastway Flip Jack that works great and folds up nicely when up. When installing just make sure you have a powered drill and not a cordless. Installed it on our first trip last summer to Mountaindale RV Resort.

Flip‚ĄĘ Jack Foot

Safe and happy travels.

Just the orange lego blocks here. Actually only had to use them once for side to side so far. I also bring 5- 12" pieces of 2x12's for bases under the stabilizers and jack and a bunch of 4x4's to crib up my stabilizers so they aren't extended too far.
