I use the X-chocks as well as heavy duty rubber truck chocks. No need to ask me why!!!

Don't ask me why I do this but: I leave the TV safety chains on the TT until the chocks are in place and the tongue jack and stabilizers are down.

I had a slip off the leveling blocks happen once and luckily I had the safety chains still attached which also pulled the brake pin out... I then decided I needed to build me a jack stand for the tongue jack that it sat down into and would hold it solid. now I use x chocks and the front stand and it wont move
