Wow, with an incline like that you're lucky the whole rig didn't just roll away on ya...hehe.

The stabilizer self adjusts for uneven ground, although nothing would work on something as drastic as what you were describing, except cinder blocks!

Have a great 4th!

We use the RotoChoks and also have the Atwood electric stabilizers for the rear. Our HH sits nice and still.

I use the Bal deluxe chocks. They work great on my 30 ft TT. Tip: when leveling your rig, start by puting the rear stabilizers down first, then raise the front just a little to allow some slope front to back (headboard of bed is on front end), then lower front stabilizers. This will take some of the weight of the TT off the axles, and prevent some of the rocking.

We carry both wheel chocks and a pair of wheel stabilizers. Most of the time we prefer the wheel stabilizers, but sometimes we'll use a chock instead or if the grade is steep,in addition to the wheel stabilizers. IMO, the two main advantages of the wheel stabilizers is that (a) they don't slip on Lynx Levelers easily, and (b) they don't get stuck under a tire like chocks do. The disadvantage is that they can allow the tires to slip if they aren't set tightly.
