Leveling with Anderson

Been using the Anderson levelers for 2 years and only issue was them sinking into soft sand which is solved by carrying a 5 ft long 2X8 in box of truck.

Under the jack stands we use 2X4's glued and nailed together which work better than the plastic ones you purchase.

Unless they've changed something, the kit comes with one rubber pad that is meant to be used under the jack; not the levellers. I don't know if the recommend using it under the levellers or not, but I'd think you'd need a second then.

I have purchased my first truck camper so I am looking at how to level my truck with the TC in the bed. I have been using the Anderson levelers for a couple of years on my TT and they have worked out great. So now I would like to use them on my truck but I am concerned with how wide the levelers are. They are 6" wide and I measured my truck tire treads to be 8.5" wide. Seems to me like that would concentrate a lot of weight in the center of the tire and stress to part of the tire that overhangs the levelers. I'm sure your Class C tires are just a wide as my truck tires? Do you see anything to be concerned about when your class C is up on those levelers?

We are fortunate in that the Andersen Levelers are virtually the same width as the tires on our Class C Jayco. I use the heavier version that is intended for a 'jack' on the rear duals and the regular levelers for the front. I had to buy two wedge chocks for the 'jack' levelers as they didn't come with them at the time I purchased. Can't really say they would damage your tires - however in the instructions they caution not to have them off to one side of a tire as it would stress the belts etc.
Hope this helps.
