Sorry, my bad. Now that I re read what I posted I have seen the error in my response. DOH! Two ramps and two chocks will be needed.

The kick method is definitely an alternative approach. Hadn't thought of that.
If the ropes don't work out I can always remove them and go to your kick method.
Thanks for the tip.

If the ropes are long enough and you put a loop on the free end, you could put an easily reached hook just under the side of the trailer and hang the ropes out of the mud.

Edd505,

Just checked to see if they fit between the wheels.
They fit with about 1" clearance - do you think that is sufficient clearance?

Thanks

I left mine uncut a couple times and uneven ground made them hard to get in. I just cut them and it made them easier to use.

I'll try them a few times to see if I need to cut them.

Thanks for your help.

I've used the anderson levelers for a couple of years. Most of the time they're great. I do get a little concerned when I need to go all the way to the edge for maximum height - looks like it would be hard on the tires?

I really like the Andersen Levelers. They work great. I just drive off mine though. Andersen says it's ok to do. So far so good.

Right but you need to remove the chock first. This is what the original poster is using the rope for, to pull the chock out after getting weight off of it.
