Will These blocks really support 40K lbs.??

Has anyone tried these Valterra Stacker Interlocking blocks?
Stackers Leveling Pad - Valterra A10-0917 - Chocks & Levelers - Camping World

I could not believe what the description says...each block will support 40,000 lbs. That is one complete coach on a single stack of these things.
Now I don't really expect that, but would like to know if anyone has used them and is happy...and how heavy is your rig?

IF these work as advertised, I may get some.

Regards,

Dan

Play on wording, yes they will support the weight, but the mfgr. doesn't say for how long or on what surface.

We have a set of the orange ones and they are still hangin' in there after 3 years of occasional use. A few months ago I bought a set of THESE, and I expect them to last forever.

I have the yellow ones, and use them when parked in our driveway under the front tires.

I have used them under the front tires and they work. Once I tried to lay them on top of wood for another inch in height, but they slide on wood, so, no go.


Lining up the Legos, under the rear tires, of my low riding Class C is a pain. I can build a ramp of 18", 2X10 boards, across the front of the rear tires, much easier.


If I need the LEGOs, on a real crooked site, I have them.

Right now the front tires of my motor home have been sitting on pyramids of Valterra Stacker Interlocking blocks for a week. It is a gravel parking pad. I like the way the tires climb up the angled end of stack with no sliding on the gravel. They take up a lot less space than boards and are lighter weight.

40,000 lbs huh?

So if you have the typical 240,000 lb Class A (without tag) it will support it?

Well, it doesn't say that. It says "Each Stacker safely supports up to 40,000 lbs. gross vehicle weight" Key words "...safely...", "...up to..." and "...gross vehicle weight...". Are we talking about one block under each of the eight tires of the 40K Lb coach? Or one stack of blocks under each tire? Or perhaps one block under one of the tires of a 40K Lb coach? Just what are they saying? Notice it is a Camping World ad. It is deliberately unclear. Assume a high degree of weaseling.
