We have a monster-sized level mounted on the front of our trailer, and I can see it quite well in the rear-view mirror. The only time I have to get out of the truck during side-to-side levelling is to put the Andersens in place. Position the truck near where I want it, put the levellers in front of the low side wheels, creep forward while watching the level in the rear-view, and stop when the bubble is centered. It literally is a one-person job now. The only job DW has now is to help me back in and scream if I'm about to hit anything.

You pull the unit off AWAY from the wedge side. My camper weighs about 8000 lbs. and I've never broke the wedge. Always pull off the high end of the cradle. I pull forward a tad to release the pressure on the wedge. Remove the wedge then pull off. The wedge just keeps the leveler in place. YouTube videos show the proper way to do it. And if I'm not mistaken, Andersen is the maker of the video.

Andersen levelers

Has anyone used andersen levelers? I have the jayco 19h will the leveler fit in between the wheels?

The pics aren't mine.
I never broke my Anderson leveler or the small wedge.
Also, my trailer is very light - 3300lb when loaded (CAT scaled)

I don't think it matters, either. I've used them both ways; it depends how the trailer is positioned on the site. Years ago I used to use a ramp to level the trailer, but after a long conversation on another forum and an email to an engineer at Dexter, I decided to abandon that idea. Too much of the wrong kind of stress on the axle and springs. But the Andersens seem to work as advertised.

I back onto mine also, I do it because I find it helps ensure there is no pressure from the king pin on the jaws of of the hitch allowing for a smother release.

Question.... Can I get by with 1 set of levelers, or do I need to buy a pair for my X23B hybrid TT?

+1 used the side level to "calibrate" the front

+1 11000lbs DW pulls wedge and off we go

I set per axle

They are a little long Anderson says to cut the to fit. They were tight between my wheels so I cut for ease of use
