I'm posting for my brother who has a 26 ft. TT from KZ which is fairly light. Even when his stabilizing jacks are tight, he still gets noticeable motion in the TT when walking around.

Does anyone have any experience with the Deluxe Tire Locking Chock, (Camping World part # 11109) which jams between the two tires, and prevents motion? They also sell a slightly cheaper one called Chock & Lock.

Camping World's description of 11109 is:

"Stop your tandem wheel trailer from rocking and rolling with the BALŪ Deluxe Tire Locking Chock. Lock tandem wheels in place with opposing force applied by this scissor-action Locking Chock. Lightweight and easy to store, it extends from 2 1/2" to 10" using included ratchet wrench. Stabilizes trailer and stops tire shift. Steel with rust-inhibitive coating."

I'm looking for information pros & cons from anyone that has used a pair of these.

Thanks,

I have not used that chock, but I do use the BAL chocks that look like a shoe wedge that goes between the two tires. Have your brother check his air pressure this can make a big difference in movement. Also I usually let my jack hit the ground then give them an extra crank or two and this seems to help it out a lot.

The trick I use to stop the "rock and roll" is to place one jack(barrel) in front of the wheels on one side and behind the wheels on the other. I level the trailer and then I drop the stabilizers. It works well for us. We have a 24 foot prowler.

You are not going to be able to completely eliminate the movement. I use tire chocks between the tires, rear braces I can crank down, the front legs and a tripod for the pin. We can reduce the movement by adjsuting the tension of the various components, but some motion will continue.

I use one and it helps a lot. I am thinking about getting one for the other side.
