I saw only one leveler—the camper leveler—on their website. There is a jack that looks similar but it's not for leveling.

Couple days late but I had to find out how to upload video. Leaving camp last weekend getting off the Andersons. DW removed between videos. Both are cut to accommodate not getting between the dual axles.

Thank you for taking the time to record and post that. Very helpful! Assuming you backed on to them to level them then drove forward off them to remove? Cannot tell from the video.

I place mine in front of the tires and pull forward to level. Once level and before I unhitch, I then place the chock/wedge under the back of the leveler to create a cradle that locks everything in place.

I suppose you could back off of them if your trailer hasn't shifted at all and you can safely remove the chock/wedge out from under the levelers first but I have found on more than one occasion, I can't get the wedges out easily so it's just easier to pull forward off the high side of the wedge that flips the levelers up as well as releases weight off of the chock/wedge.

Looks to me that is how he did it as well.

I pull forward onto the leveler just as blujay40 says above. I pull forward like the video shows. The delay in the first is waiting for the "start engine" on the old 7.3. I move forward and the DW gets the two pieces, pull forward a second time and the last two are free.

The hardest part to get accustom to is moving inches, not feet like the lego or wood blocks. I wouldn't go back to the old style after using these.

I would think that would be fine!

I can't think of any reason it would not be okay unless you have the refrigerator on.
