Good one, tugboat95. Regarding my original question on the Andersen levelers, I did locate the length, 15 1/2" so they will probably work OK on my RV. I will be ordering them this week. Would still like to hear from anyone who has purchased these and your opinion of them.

I had to trim mine to use them on my Jayco 23j...I am going to try them this weekend. Does anyone know how the X chocks work with these?

I use them with X-chocks on my X23B and don't have any issues.

I bought a horse stall mat and cut it in various sizes- 10 inches wide x 10, 12, and 14 inches long- I stack them as needed to raise the low side- I block both wheels up as it seems more stable- These stall mats are made from ground up tires and don't crack or break or rot- Pricey? I don't think so as I'll never buy any more- JMHO- DD

We had the Big Foot auto leveling system on our fifth wheel..........yes I miss it. For leveling our WhiteHawk, I have three 2" x 6" planks cut to 60, 65, & 70 inches long, with polypropylene rope handles on each end. They are not heavy and fully support the tires on the side that requires elevation to level. To date, I have never needed to use more than 2 planks to level the trailer. Oh, yeah and two milk crates with 2" x 6" x 12" boards to place under the stabilizers as needed. Low tech to be sure, but not all that aggravating to use, especially with a beer in my free hand!

I ordered two of the Anderson leveler s off eBay. $89.70 delivered. I watched several videos...I don't see how I can go wrong and I can use one as a axle jack if necessary.

Leveling Question.

We've got the Andersen levellers and love them. Easy to use. One had to be trimmed for our x213. We may trim the other to match as well so it goes up both evenly.

We came from the BAL leveller on our previous single axle trailer and the Andersen levellers take less time than cranking up the BAL. But don't have as much height potential as the BAL.

I may be misunderstanding what you're saying here, but the Andersen product that is the jack is the Rapid Jack. We own it as well and it's much heavier duty than the levellers. I don't believe the levellers can be used as a jack.
