Looking for a tri- or quad-level trailer ramp/block product...

I was at the dump station at Ludington State Park on Monday, looking to get a good dump of all three waste tanks for the final time of the year before winterizing. I pulled out my Lynx Levelers in preparation to lift the door side of my TT to try the maximum gravity assistance trick in dumping my black tank.

A fellow camper with a big 5'er was at the next dump island and saw what I was doing. He suggested I instead use a tiered ramp-type one piece leveler/jack he had with him. I borrowed it and it worked great! I've never had that kind of flow from my black tank. It barely required a rinse with the flushing system.

I wish I'd seen the product name on it, because I'd like to buy one. After an internet search was fruitless, I can only say it was generally comparable to the yellow Camco RV Tri-Leveler found on the WalMart website:

Camco RV Tri-Leveler, Yellow - Walmart.com

The one I borrowed was also yellow, but appeared a little beefier, and may have even been taller or had a fourth level. Does anyone know of or have something like this (other than the Camco version) which you could cite by name and source?

Thanks!

You could put the one side up on a Trailer Aid used for changing tires, that would give you about six inches of lift.

Thanks, Bill. Good thought. Might just go that route if I don't find the product which was loaned to me.

cpaulsen - I had heard of them, but had never seen them. Just watched a YouTube video and those are pretty slick. That might be something I'll look at in the future. Thanks.

They do work....bought mine at Les Schwab Tire....spendy at 39 bucks each but so easy to use especially for leveling. No more using blocks.

I just bought the Anderson 3600 complete kit off of amazon. Can't wait to give the levels a try. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00LMJ...5571930&sr=8-1
