I may have to look into those Andersen leveler wedge thingies. Looked so easy.

The one thing that I have come to appreciate is that RV people so freely provide information. I spend a fair bit of time observing people setting up and what seems to be easy or difficult in my observation. That's how I got on to the Anderson levellers and the bal X chocks. Other RV owners were very open to both the pros and cons that's why I still carry a couple of 2x8's because one of our fellow travellers warned me of his experience wth soft ground and that's why he carries a board or 2 in case the ground is too soft and then he puts the levellers on the board. These threads are awesome for information sharing.

I just got a ReVo leveler gadget. Pretty neat little box that takes the guess work out of how much is needed to level the trailer. A lot easier than running back and forth to look at the level inside or bubble levels.
I pretty much exclusively boondock at tracks so I either find where I want trailer to sit and get the ReVo to tell me how many boards(inches) I need, or just drive slowly to find a naturally level spot.

I carry a 4 foot 2 x 12 and 3 foot 2 x 10. If it needs more than 4 inches we live with it or move.

Same here when we had a trailer. Also some 4"x6" blocks about 12" long for the stabilizing jacks. Don't forget the drive nut adapter so you can drop your stabilizing jacks with a rechargeable drill.

Power tongue jacks are also worth every penny they cost.

Of course now in the MH I just push a button and wait.

Andersen levelers, and if needed I have 12x12x2 pieces of pressure treated I can put under the levelers. If the site is that far off level we'll move or live with it.

I assume you are using a Andersen leveler on each axle on the low side? Wireman

My question is similar. Can you get away with just using one at one axle? And if so is it better to raise the rear or front axle? I am guessing the rear. That could be a terminating factor to me as I really don't want to buy 2 of them. I have little space to store them but guess I could just toss them in the trailer while on the road.

If I only need a little help, I use one. If I need a lot of help, I use both on the same side. I trimmed the length on one so it was easier to deal with between the tires.

Sounds great, I'll probably get two of them. I camp at a spot on the beach that is all 1/2" rock.
Me have been thinking to put a piece of 3/4" plywood down on both sides for flotation as I know my tires settle into the rock over night.
I am guessing these will work on the plywood. If not I guess I can put some of that anti-slip tape on stuff either on the plywood or the Andersen levelers themselves.

I have had the Lynx levelers for quite a while. I find them very easy to use and haven't broke yet. I have done boards and the yellow Lego style and the Lynx seem to be stronger and lighter. Very happy with them
