Andersen Jack Blocks?

Anyone using them? I could see these being an all-in-one solution for jack weight distribution, prevention of overstroke error, and quick leveling, with the added bonus of more coach stability from shorter jack extension.

Shorter leveling jack shaft length, less rock.

I have one of those for my tongue jack. I really like it. Took the place of a lot of wood blocks piled on top of each other.

I'm also interested in feedback on these blocks. I've got them in my shopping cart to purchase for my new 5th wheel.

I have the Anderson levelers and they are great. Just put them in front of the tires and pull forward till the camper is level side to side and insert the chocks that come with them and your level in less than 2 minutes. I use X-Chocks and it is really steady. Will never go back to stacking blocks and pulling upon them. FYI I also bought the Anderson tire change assist. I did not work for me. I can pull all the way up to the highest point and it will not get my other tire off the ground.

I agree their Levelers are great, I used them on my last rig. But if you click on the link you'll see I am referring to another of their products.

For what it's worth, I ended up ordering a set of the Blocks, and they were good and bad.

Good:
Quick set up
Definitely reduced rock by keeping the shaft extension short.

Bad:
If you're on an unlevel site, there is a chance they won't fit under your jacks even when fully retracted. On a site I was on, it was unlevel by maybe 6 or so inches front to rear, and I could not fit the Blocks under my front jacks.
Also, the lip is about 1.5" wide, and I could definitely see these things sinking over time in muddy ground, requiring periodic releveling.

I ended up returning them.

Andersen Jack Blocks?

I have 6x6 wood blocks for the stabilizers and jack. They work great. The Anderson jack blocks arenít worth $89/pair to me.

I pondered them but due to the the one piece design and the cost, I passed. The way I camp I need to be able to adjust the height of my blocking. I have a crap load of "Lego" style blocks I use. Yet sometimes I don't seem to have enough of them. Lol both of my basement door trays are full of Lego blocks.

I think they are a little spendy for what it is. Also I wonder about them sinking in with the small surface area that touches the ground.
