One bag is all I've ever needed, and they are all I use to level. I don't like to have extra things to load into my TV. I don't know about freezing. I'm parked and covered by then.

I've been following this for a bit and have a question, I've looked on the lynx website but can't find any indications of a limit of how high they can be stacked. Has any one seen a limit on height?
Our Sunseeker has about a 17 foot wheelbase so being out of level by a half inch takes a stack 8 high to bring us level. Climbing up the pyramids feels like taking off in a commercial jet

WHAT??? Lucy, you got some Splaining to do. I am very confused by this post, 1/2 in side to side needs 6 blocks? or are you talking front to back, which still makes no sense to me...

On the top of the bag, it says no more than 5" (e.g. 5 blocks).

I agree! I'm really confused by this.

Sorry I was unclear there. 17 feet front to back and 1/2 inch per foot

Sorry, stillconfused. The legos are used for side to side leveling. So if you,re an inch or so out of level on one side you'd only need one block per wheel on the low side.

I think the difference is- with a motorhome (e.g. Sunseeker + wheelbase), you may need to use them for front-to-back leveling, as well.

don't motorhomes have hydraulics for leveling? I know I've seen some seriously extended automatic levelers.

I've also seen people put 6 or 8 of them under each stabalizer jack, while on relativley flat ground. Why don't they just extend there jacks down closer to the ground?
