Leveling your rig....

I know there are often questions about the do's and don'ts of leveling your camper. Some single axle owners really love the BAL light trailer leveler. Some like to use those Camco or Lynx bricks while others like that Andersen drive on product.

Sometimes, simpler is just better. And since a photo is worth a thousand words, I thought thought I would share this for all those who might be throwing away dollars unnecessarily, when every day scrap material may be all you need!!

See? Isn't that simple?

My luck is I use just 2 Lynx blocks and there's no slope and I'm in the river. That is funny and those Wing Nuts do it all the time and there's never a problem.

Bet there a bit of bounce when someone walks around in those.

I wish I would have seen this before I spent all that money on jacks and Lynx blocks.

Would anyone like to buy all of my leveling stuff. I think I could use some of my fire wood for leveling.
