FasTen Dual Wheel Levelers Gimmick or Helpful?

Hi,

First time leveling with dual tires (x23b, had a popup before and just used the BAL!). Has anyone tried these FasTen Levelers? It seems like they're twice as long so you don't need to piece as many together, but would it be better to get two set of the regular Lynx Levelers?

Thanks for your input on this!

Just go with the Andersen Levelers.

They are more expensive, but worth every penny.

The set of 10 linx levelers I bought for my previous (single axle) trailer are more than adequate for the dual-axle Jayco. Remember, you only need to raise up one side. IIRC its the lower one .

X4 for the Andersens.


We had Lego blocks for the pup, but after 8 years of use they were pretty beat up. The ones we have (not sure of brand) are too brittle and cracked the edges too often when pulling on/off.


The Andersens have been great so far (1st year) although I did have a hard time on our last trip. We were on a soft sandy site, and the levellers kept digging in/sinking into the sand as we pulled up onto them. But that probably would have been as bad or worse with Lynx type levellers. Wood would be the answer there, but I don't carry wood ramps in my kit.

x5 on the Andersens. I mounted a big level on the front of the trailer that I can see in the rear view mirror. After backing in, I put the Andersens in front of (or behind) the low side wheels and creep forward (or backward) until the wheels ride up on the Andersens, while watching the level in the mirror. I stop when it says to. Nothing could be easier.
