For those who use Lynx leveling blocks, how many blocks do you have on hand? I have a storage compartent filled with various wood blocks, and I'd love to consolidate down to Lynx blocks, but is one set typically enough?

I have (2) 10pks of Lynx leveling blocks, 1 (4) Pk of the smooth top caps for the lynx blocks. I also carry (4) 4"x4"x10" wood blocks if needed for the Stab Jacks and tounge jack for the rare occasion that I need all 20 for leveling

A 10 pack does me good with a small trailer.
You can now buy them in 10 packs a 4 packs.
They come in handy for lots of things, so at least 10 pack IMHO

Best regards,
Doug

We are fulltimers going on 14 years- I have used dimension lumber as well as plywood- Plywood lasted longer than lumber because it has some "give" to accommadate uneven campsites- I have no experience with rubber matting but read about it somewhere on the web- It is my intention to give it a shot and I will post my opinion on the outcome- JMHO- DD

Same here and it is very seldom that I even need to use any of the wood blocks.

I have pads made from three thicknesses of 3/4" treated plywood with rope handles that I made and are used for the tongue jack and the corner stabilizing jacks. I carry three bags of Lynx blocks. One bag always takes care of leveling the trailer with some left over. The remainder are used with the screw jacks that I put in front of the wheels to reduce shake. I was going to build more pads, but for $31 a bag at Walmart, it's cheaper to buy than build, plus they are light, easy to handle and easy to store. The treated plywood cost me more than that. I didn't know that Lynx made smooth caps for the blocks. I'll have to check into that.

I have two 10 packs and haven't needed any more, but was thinking of getting one more set "just in case". We've got a few hills here in east TN. I have this cone looking thing that I bought at CW for the front that is great. I like it so much more than stacking boards and blocks. It looks like a cone, but has an are recessed in the top to accept and hold the front jack leg.

X3:

Usually one bag (10) is more than enough to level the TT. I use the rest under the stabilizer jacks, especially those farthest from the ground as I found the shorter they are the more effective they are at reducing the shake. Much, much lighter than enough wood blocks to accomplish the same thing IMHO.
