I like the Fast way One-Step, although I don't need them much anymore with 6-point leveling. I've used the Roto-chock but you have to have enough space between the tires (I didn't with my previous Wildcat).

I, like Ralphie liked the One Step. In order for One Step to work as designed, both wheels need to be on the ground. We have the 4 point Lippert leveling system and it will lift the wheels off the ground. Even when it doesn't do that, it will lighten the load on the wheels to the point that the One Step is useless. Just lying on the ground between the wheels not touching anything.

So. That being said, I now use X-Chocks.

I was wondering about that... We also have the Lippert 4 point, and I do NOT like it that it trys to lift a tire or two off the ground. I have gone to manual leveling. I don't like hearing our new 5th wheel creak and pop while leveling. Along with large rubber type chocks ... When the weight is lifted off the tires, you need to snug up the chocks. I have not yet tried the X chocks.

Seeing we upgraded our tires, we know longer have enough space between the two tires to put in chocks. So we bought some pretty heavy duty block chocks with handles and put them around the tires. They work great but we did lose some stabilization inside our 5th wheel because the scissor chocks minimized that.

I use the X-Chock and lock it with a brass trailer tongue lock. I had one grow legs while getting engine work done at the Cummins Shop in El Paso TX one day but the shop manger was kind enough to replace it for me.
