I like using the lynx levelers because they are light weight, and easy to store in their own little bag. Also, I don't have to worry about them taking on water or insects; when you take them up, you can just clap them together to remove all the "stuff" that accumulates.

I can't say they don't "rot" like wood, because the plastic is UV sensitive and will degrade over time; so it's just a different kind of rot. They will eventually need to be replaced.

All that being said, I keep a decent stock of scrap lumber on board as well; you just never know what you're going to need!

Depending on how much leveling is needed, determines the blocking configuration. I use primarily 2x6 construction material. The concept is the same no matter what material you use. If you put one block under each wheel you get the full lift of the thickness of the block. If you only place one block under one wheel, then you only get half as much lift.

So with a 2x6 (1.5” thick)
One block under each wheel I get a total of 1.5” of lift on that side of the TT
One block under just one wheel, I get ” of lift on that side of the TT.
