Anderson Levelers - how much to trim for X23B?

We bought the Anderson Levelers, but don't have our new X23B yet (tomorrow whoo hoo!). I know it/they need to be trimmed, but by how much? I don't want to take off more than necessary.

Also, what did anyone use to trim these? I think I read another thread about using a circular saw (and clamp the leveler so they can be sawed I'm assuming?), but I don't even know if I still have one, so what else could I use? And did you trim both of them just so they match when you're rolling up on them height-wise, or just the one?

Thanks in advance!

They don't necessarily need to be trimmed. It depends and the size of your tires and their spacing. I didn't have to do any trimming on mine.

Try to insert them between your tires after you get the trailer, and then you'll be able to tell.

Once you get your trailer see if the leveler will fit behind the front tire and slide into place, if the rear tire is to close then you can determine how much needs to be cut off. I don't see any reason to cut the leveler that will go under the rear tire. You could also cut with a sawzall or scroll saw, both would be safer but slower to cut if you don't have a large clamp to use with a circular saw.

To be clear. I am looking for a "hand held saw" that will cut the leveler. I do not own any table saws. I have a Jigsaw, I think. What other small handheld saw would work? Are you x23B owners?


Thanks!!

You may not need to trim these at all but a jigsaw will work if needed.

For our 19H I had to cut after the first hole. Your 23B is a larger model, so you may not need to cut at all, test fit it first. Cut through the solid web between the holes, and if you do cut, cut them both down so your wheels will rise evenly.


I cut mine on a sliding compound mitre saw, using the wedge to hold it flat. It may be good to use a hand saw however - I created a major pink snowstorm in my driveway with power saw. The plastic itself cuts very easily so I think a hand saw might work. If you can, clamp it into a mitre jig to get a straight cut. If using a jig saw, I would clamp a straight edge across the leveller to guide the saw.

No trimming necessary on the 2016 X23B. You should be good.

Another confirmation of no trimming necessary. Ours aren't trimmed for a 2016 x23b.
