Red face Leveling 2014 x23b

Hi all!
Looking for recomendations on leveling my x23b. I'm usually solo adult hauling/setting up- some days better backing in than others. Trying to avoid stacking up a bunch of lynx blocks guessing how much I need and hoping I get the tires on them.
I've read about the Anderson Rv leveler. Anyone useing it on their x23b? Looks like my kind of product, but from what I've read the x23b's axels would be too close together to use it on both wheels. Would that be a problem?
Any jacks that would do the job?
Suggestions/recomendations would be appreciated.
Happy camping!

I bought them and use them on my 2015x23b. I was very apprehensive about the whole leveling issue with just myself and my girls. I had to saw off extra length for front tire as instructions suggested. They are the best thing ever! Totally recommend. My oldest daughter just holds the level and tells me when to stop no guesswork involved ��

Used the Lego blocks on our 23b. Would back into a site and check for level. Make stacks of however many it seemed were needed and put them directly in front or behind the tires. No aiming necessary.

I don't have a x23b but as someone who had a pop up for 11 years and always used the Lynx blocks, and recently moved up to a 5th wheel; I'm a little mad that I just found the Anderson RV leveler. Yes they are that easy! I also bought and installed one of the large levels that I can see in my rear view, so I park, get out, set the andersons levels in place, pull forward until the ball is centered and done. No guess work needed, no other help needed.

If your solo sometimes this will help a lot. This level shows you in 1" increments how much to raise the TT. The Lego blocks are 1" so that makes it real easy and for the fine tuning I carry 1/2" boards to get it almost spot on.

I have a 2014 23f and the Anderson levelers are the best and fastest, I did have to trim off like the instructions say because the wheels are too close together. But the wife just reads the level as a back up and it's done! I upgraded to the 23f from a pop up and had the bal Tire leveler but could not use that on the tandom axels, I looked all over until seeing the Anderson levelers and ordered them thru Amazon great investment. I've used them a dozen+ times this year and they work great. The stacking blocks are still in the bag in the back of the storage compartment for leveling the table or grill if needed.

Thanks everyone. I bought the Anderson levelers and they are the greatest thing since sliced bread! We're level and chalked. Yes, I had to cut one down,as the instructions advise,but it was easy to do. Will post a picture when I get a chance. Highly recommend them!

FYI if you have dual axles, you can add an extra lynx block under one axle to get 1/2" rise on that side.
