TT leveling

Newbie here! Just upgraded to the Prime Time avenger 27bbs. We had a rock wood pop up before this. When leveling the trailer side to side do you want to use both axles or is one ok?

Important! Both. By design, one axle will not support the weight. We level with boards, but other systems are available.

Yes, we've used lots of things to level...boards, those leggo-looking block things, and last year tried out these nifty things and they are my new favorite. (They are called Anderson 3604 Camper levelers.) The reason I like them is you can go up just a little or up about 4-inches, depending on how far you drive up on them.

We must be old fashioned compared to those red high tech looking levellers. We take two boards with us, they are 8 inches wide, two inches thick and 37 or so inches long and the second is cut 6-8 inches shorter with a wedge cut on the end to drive up on. The length and width will support both tires on both axles. If the campsite is out by more than the 4 inches than we have a problem to start with. I like it this way as if there is a pothole or root or something then I have the l x w x h to negiotate the obstacle. Not every CG looks or is level like a paved parking lot.

I have these and love them. There is nothing easier unless you have and auto leveling system
