I put the chock behind the piece of wood, but the chock wasn't pushed into the back of the tire like I would have preferred. The manufactured leveling blocks I've seen for sale have the same problem. I recently found a longer piece of wood that would allow me to actually put one chock ON the wood with the tire. Is that the way to solve the problem? How do you handle it? Am I just worrying too much?
DW & I love camping. Her job is to sit back, relax, read, do artistic stuff, etc. It is my job to do the worrying.
But seriously, I'm just never sure where the line is for worrying just enough
to be safe.
Bottom line to a long trial-&-error, tire chock story: I have started using bungee cords so that the chocks are being pulled into the tires, front and rear, on both sides of the TT. Why? Because the common, hard plastic, yellow chocks I use have occasionally slid a bit when resting on plastic, wood, asphalt, concrete, and hard packed dirt.
I haven't used this method a lot of times, but so far the TT seems anchored in place when I did.
