I just have a small 12' cheap level I keep just inside the door. Most of the time as I pull up to a site I can see that I'll need one or two lynx-levelers.

One of my family members gave me a app for a smart phone or Ipad for a level. So now my son takes his I-Pad out and holds it to the rear hybrid bunk door lip. Then after we level side to side and dis-connect, will use the level on the bottom of the window to do the back and front leveling. There are times when we are a half a bubble off on the side to side part. I really don't worry about it.

Boy someone had too much coffee or something...

We eye ball it first and then just check inside the door for side to side and then front to make. I know close enough is good but I do not want to look and see the trailer not level as I am walking down the road towards the site so I get as close as i can. For me, it just seems too much to get in and out of the trailer to check when I can just walk to the door.

IMHO, Throw your lego blocks away fellas! You can level and chock in one application without any guess work with these babies. No point in cutting the corner here.

Yes, these Anderson things look like they could work. I am just waiting for someone to post the longevity of them. Driving on and off several times could be a damage point. They are a little pricey if they don't last.

As to your picture, I don't believe that is the correct placement of them and could lead to problems. JMHO

I like the look and idea of the Andersons but cut 2x6's and now I have 3 sets of those yellow lego-levelers, I am pretty set. They have one that's set up to be a jack in case of a flat. Looks like it would be quick and easy. I know I'll be tilted in the dirt if I ever get a flat. That fancy red plastic might just grow legs also.
