The Lynx levelers do work fine and they are strong, but with the Andersen units I only need to position them and my wife watches a level while I pull the trailer up on them until the trailer is perfectly level, then stop and put the included chocks in place and we're done (side to side). It probably took me longer to type this than it does to use them. And I assure you they are very stoutly built.

Last year we put a big metal level on the frame, just in front of the propane tanks. It is zip tied on, and it works great to show what side needs to be leveled and how much. We have been using the Lynx leveler a for many years. Our oldest set is at least 10 years old, and they have faded in the sun. We got a second set with the first tandem axel trailer, maybe 7 years ago. All are still useable. I want to be able to adjust in1" increments so we never liked the wood blodcks. We do use a set of 8 wooden blocks screwed together for the tongue since the trailer sits pretty high.

I watched the Anderson leveler video but they only show the "ideal" situation where you roll far enough onto the leveler to chalk at the skinny end. What if you only need 1" of leveling? Do you put the chalk on the fat end of the leveler?

Does anyone have any issues using the x-chock with the Anderson leveler where the one between the tires sticks up too far possibly?

I'm interested in these including the rapid jack.

You simply tuck it under the other side of the tire.

I find I have to pull just a tiny bit past correct level, place the small chock, and let it roll back just a bit to disconnect the trailer, especially if I only needed a little help to level.
