HW296!! X Chock & Andersen Leveler??

Anyone use these? If so do you use a pair? Also anyone use the Andersen Leveler? Looking to lighten the load with wood blocks.

I use the Anderson levelers on my TT and like them. I also keep a stack of Lego type Lynx levelers for those grades where you only need a slight lift and for the crank down stabs when I need to go high on the Anderson levelers.

I switched to the Lynx Levelers (legos) from carrying wood blocks when we went from a PUP to an A-frame. Like the Lynx far better than the wood blocks for storage and weight - mine came in a pack of 10 with a cloth carrying case at Wal-mart for $30.

I put a bubble level calibrated in inches on the front of the A-frame. 1" on the level equals 1 lego. Back approximately into position, read the level, put the number of legos indicated, and back on to the legos. It really is as simple as that.

I use two X-Chocks on my HW296 and love them. I always had sway with my single axle HW but the HW296 with the X-Chocks is rock solid. I love them.

For levelers.... I still use wood.

x-chocks really tame down the trailer movement! Highly recommend them. Would not own a Rockingwood without them!

+Andersen levers are good on gravel or hard surfaces, but I had to dig them out of the ground when it got wet last trip, keeping a board handy.
I have legos for sale !!!

I chose Roto-Choks over X-Chocks, so I cant help you there other than yes, you will want a pair of them.

For leveling, I went from wood blocks, to strips of horse stall mat, to Andersen Levelers. Andersen Levelers ARE all they're hyped up to be.

I did find that when I only need an inch or so to get level, I prefer using something other than the Andersen's. I cut one of my stall mat strips into a few small pieces about the size of those plastic lego blocks. I can use the rubber block by itself if only an inch is needed, and I can use it under the Andersen Levelers if I ever need a little more lift then they offer. The stall mat strips actually worked great for leveling and they are indestructible but I went to Andersen Levelers to save space and weight.

Deploy the X-Chocks at every stop - luv em. Have the A-Levelers too but haven't had to use them yet. Been batting a thousand with level sites.
