Thank you, so the tongue jack adjustment should always be able to get me level front to rear then?

That's correct. Side to side level first, chock it, and front to back level last, then drop the stab jacks, and you can put boards or Lynx Levelers under them if they're a long ways to touch down, Reduces the amount you have to crank them, also.

Thank you. I have the Anderson jack pads, but they seem thin. I may head to HD today to pick up some boards. Just 2x4 and cut them short to size of jack pad?

2X4's will work, 2X6's may give a little more stability give the width of the pad on the bottom of your jacks. Maybe HD will give you some scrap cut-offs.

As oldmanAZ mentioned, yes you can place blocks under the stabilizer jacks so they don't need extend all the way. Also doesn't matter if the same thing is needed in the front. Just all depends on each individual campsite. Under the stabilizer jacks I place a 4x6x~10 on top of a 2x8x~12. This is for fairly level sites. Sometimes it may only be the 2x8 under the stabilizer at on end, and a taller stack at the other end.

Paintinfool gave a great explanation on how to level and unhook when arriving at the campsite. The one thing I do disagree with is the use of the X-chocks to prevent the trailer from rolling. They are not designed to be used as such. You need true wheel chocks in place before unhooking the tv. Only place the X-chocks once the trailer is leveled front to rear. If I remember correctly, the instruction sheet states they can be damaged if in place when raising or lowering the trailer (front/rear). There have also been posts about trailers rolling away that only had x-chocks in place, no wheel chocks.

Thank you! Sorry for the foolish question but what does "~10" mean?

Simple Newbie Leveling Question

I think that is the length in inches.
Here is a pic of what I use.
Made from scrap lumber.

The squiggly line that looks like this '~' means approximately.

So need-a-vacation was saying he used a piece of 4"x6" lumber that is cut to approximately 10" long and is placed on top of a piece of 2"x8" lumber that is cut to approximately 12" long.

TY Norty and Oldman!

Blue,

They explained it exactly. Measurements are from memory. As long as they are larger than the stabilizer base, your good!

Hope you got all you need for blocks.
