Wheel Chocks

Thanx Guys & gals for the great ideas...

What I like about your idea is "Emergency Brake!"

It is not going to roll front or back.

I have made several sets of these ''home-made" wheel chocks after discovering what the commercially made ones cost. My cost to make a set (one for each side) is about $6 and 20 minutes time-when I'm in a "tinkering mode". I forget whether it is Rusty or Ken that uses small chain binders instead of all-thread to clamp the blocks tight.

Yeah I paid about the same to produce mine as well... Much cheaper...

Might not be a good idea... If the RV is left in a remote area someone might help themselves to a free pair of chain binders... And your RV might be rolling off somewhere...

Like with my idea using standard nuts and wrench to tighten you can't remove the chocks without the tool to loosen the nut. Bit more secure and no free tools for someone to snag...

My TT will rarely see a full hook up park (maybe at home)... Most of its service life will be in the back country of Idaho.
