Leveling Blocks Recommendation

Any suggestions for durable plastic (is that an oxymoron?) leveling blocks for a 2018 Precept 35S (22,000 lb chassis with 22.5" diameter wheels)?

Perfecto. I'm tired of using a bunch of single blocks and these fill the bill.

I’ve used the 2x size ones mentioned above for the rear dualies. I use Lynx Levelers for the fronts and Hosspads for my leveling jacks.

If for use under jack's get a set of snap pads. They are a great addition. Larger footprint and added stability.

Lego's (Links Levelers) under all 4 duals and front tires for my 35S. I like to be able to have that 1" increment adjustment since we still go to state parks and also boondock.

I'd save my money and go by a 2 x 10 x 8 foot board. I cut mine into 2 foot blocks with a 45 degree cut on both edges. I sprayed pick up bed liner on them. I arrange and stack them as needed. The plastic leveler blocks do not last and are expensive! The first time you are uneven ground like dirt or rocks the heavy coach will warp or mangle them. They will cease to stack. The wood has lasted 2 years and is undamaged, it is also much cheaper. Since they are black they don't stand out like the ugly yellow blocks.........

I used boards until they started splitting. They're also heavier. I've had a boatload of plastic blocks for years and have only lost one to damage.

4 for me. I do have some that are mangled a little but still stack and work fine.

I've never split a board. Everytime I bought the plastic blocks my heavy motorhome warps them until they can't stack together anymore. They then take up too much space. Wood is cheap. To each their own.

I have split and cracked the plastic leveling blocks on uneven ground. They also sink in soft ground. I have found some rubber conveyer belting that I am going to try under the leveling blocks to create a wider footprint. I am hoping that the belting will prevent the sinking and damage to the plastic blocks. I have also had the blocks slide on the concrete pad when backing onto them. I like the plastic blocks convenance so I am going to make them work for me.
