I fear that if I tighten up after leveling they will be so tight when levelers go up, to leave, that I can't get them loose. I also fear that with much slope that the trailer may roll as the trailer is being leveled. Does anyone else have this issue?
If they are really Bal X Chocks, you should be able to loosen them regardless with the ratchet wrench furnished with them. When the trailer is leveled, it is releasing pressure on the suspension and the axles move apart slightly especially if it has torsion axles. Not so much on spring suspended axles.
