andersen levelers

I bought a set of these and own a Jayco 23j....does anyone know if they will work with this camper or a 23b.....I am sure there are others that have the same tires/axels as these trailers.

I guess as long as you use them in pairs you'd be ok. I wouldn't try to level the trailer using only one wheel...that's a lot of strain on one tire not to mention the tor-flex axle.

My method is more old fashioned. Use the Lego style blocks under both tires on the side that you need to elevate.

I did buy two, I am more concerned about if they will fit between the tires on this style of camper. Mine is in storage for another month

I'm interested in the Anderson levelers as well. I remember reading the reviews on Amazon about a guy saying that he had 2.5 in between his tires at the closest point and he said it was a tight fit [on the ground] but doable. Someone else said that you can "trim" the front part if it won't fit between the tires on the ground without losing any lift.

I have heard you can trim them if you need to but I am hoping I dont have to. I think these are one of the best gadgets they have come out with in years! Can't wait to try them.

Old fashion 2x8 works fine by me. I cut one piece to fit between the two tires and cut each end at a 45 degree angle. I cut a second piece about the same length with a 45 degree angle cut on only one end. Can take it up two inches which is usually more than enough. Can raise one wheel or both wheels. Never had a problem and costs way less than $80.

I received correspondence from Andersen Hitches, (www.andersenhitches.com) regarding my concern of the spacing between the tandem tires of my 5er. What they sent was the below diagram of what can be done if they are a bit too long, in case you are interested in their leveler.

Bring 2, 5/4 by 6 boards, and 2, 2 by 6 boards. I would worry about the tires rolling off those levelers.

I had thought about purchasing these levellers but just couldn't pay the price that they were asking. I use two 1X6 6' boards and back the trailer up on them. Very easy and works great.

I use them on tandem axles with 13" wheels on my X23B. They work great and there is no need to trim them. The one that goes in between the axles simply stands on end. When you roll forward/back in falls into place.
