There's a long running thread on them here:
Andersen Camper Levelers

Long and short of it, other than needing to trim them up a bit for axles/wheels that are close- I don't think I've heard any complaints about them. (Though, I haven't read every post in that thread and have never used them myself.)

I have also purchased this Andersen leveling wedge. Looks so easy in the video. I am very eager to try this.

[QUOTE=ependydad;608755]Ours changes slightly side to side, but it's not nearly enough to stress about. After a few setups, we learned to account for it. (Wife and I are spastic about being perfectly level- our doors swing closed if we aren't as I can just naturally feel it).[/QUOTE]

On ours, we need to have the driver's side about 1 inch higher than the other side before we put the slides out. Two slides on the same side, extended, hangs a lot of weight out that side, and drops the left side of the trailer to just about perfectly level.

So when you level side to side, must you put boards under both of the low side tires or just one of the tires? I've always done both, but see some who only do one tire.

Thanks

I raise both but I've heard if you only raise one, you get 1/2 the leveling amount. We try to "dial in" our leveling by raising just one tire when we get it close. Don't know if it really works or if it just let's us feel better.

Raise both on the same side the same amount, otherwise, you're overloading a tire. Overloading a tire momentarily is ok while traveling, but not for an extended period of time parked.

You think that applies with the Equaflex system also? I can see where it would apply to a torsion axle system, but the idea of the Equaflex is to spread the weight evenly across both axles, thus both tires. Haven't studied it thoroughly, though. Just a thought.
