Leveling the Rockwood 2504s

I think I saw a thread somewhere covering this issue: Because the wheels are so close together, what have 2504s owners found to be the best solution to leveling their camper? Blaylock/Anderson style levelers or just a whole lot of blocks making one long base under both tires? Or something other?

I use Anderson on my same-as-yours 25KS. Cut to fit and works well.

Are you able to support both axles with them?

Yes. To save money, I bought one Anderson level and one Rapid Jack. Can use them together to level. I don't need to level very often. I use the Rapid Jack as a trailer jack stand mostly. And of course to be ready to change a flat.

If at all possible I try to lower the center of gravity. Using a small spade/showel to remove some dirt where possible. Can't be done in some places but works very well in others. I wrote a blog post on that.

Cheers,

I just keep a couple of pressure treated 2x10s in the pickup bed for leveling side-to-side. I like the thought of the Andersen Levelers but I have too much Scottish blood in me to spend over $100 Canadian for 2 of them. I can buy a lot of 2x10s for that price.

Anderson leveler blocks. Cut one to fit between wheels and they work great. Level in just a few minutes with no hassles. Just back up till you are level.

We do whatever needs to be done at that particular site, or a combo of the following:
1) 2'X10" that are about 10" long, making them square
2) lego blocks
3) scraping some dirt from the high side


With the 2"X10"X10" you can put one in front of the front tire of the trailer, and one between the tires, and then pull forward onto them (or back on to them, which ever you need. If that isn't enough, you can then double them up. Put 2 in front of each tire (with the tire already on one, so you are going from 1 to 2 instead of ground to 2) and repeat the process. We have also had to go one level of 2X10 and 1 lego block, etc. As long as you have a few different thicknesses of "blocks", you should be able to work it out. I find the secret is having them short enough that they fit between the tires, so you don't have 4' long boards
