That is certainly a possibility, we'll give it a try. This was our first time to level the trailer so more experiments are definitely planned!

It looks from the pic that you backed onto the leveler. Did you happen to try pulling on to them driving forward like the video shows? I'm just curious before I go buy a set.

No, we didn't but that is on our list to try. The Lynx blocks had the same problem so I don't think the issue is unique to the Anderson Levelers. We did have to cut about 3 inches off the tips so they would fit between the wheels, and that probably didn't help either.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but do we need a single set (ramp and chock) or two? The video shows both ways. Our special order trailer will be here Monday and I would prefer to use these than the blocks we used on our Class C.

Not a stupid question. I have often wondered why the manufacturer shows both a single and a double in his promo video. It appears that one may do the trick but I suspect two would be much better. I went ahead and ordered two and was very impressed how they worked.

Is the guy in the video trying to build the pyramid of Giza with all those Lynx levelers?

I got a set of these last fall. Side to side leveling was so much easier. Whether or not they are worth the price is determined solely by what you are willing to pay to reduce the time and effort. We usually camp in state parks or county parks and the sites are not very level at all. These made a tedious, time consuming task effortless and quick. Worth every penny to me.

How do they do if you only need to lift you trailer say 1/2" to 3/4" do you still use both the ramp and chock, or just the ramp part?

Thanks
