Here is a link to those at napa. About $20 apiece but a small price to pay considering possible damage. Just went down and picked up a couple.

Then do yourself a favor and buy some Race Ramps 'RUBBER' wheel chocks. These suckers are SUPER durable, very solid high quality product. Unlike plastic, they will NOT slide away no matter how smooth the surface is. You can drive over them, but will NOT crash even under 15,000lb trailer weight.

Before I bought them, I struggled with plastic and wooden chocks. Until I gave them a try. I will never look back. Unlike, plastic or wooden chocks, you don't even have to 'kick' them inside the tire in order to hold in place. You simply place them against the tire= done.

I use them to chock my 5'er. Even while working on my cars.

Amazon has them for around $60 for 4 of them. See link below;


I have 4 of these also!

Tractor Supply has the large rubber ones as well. About $12 each IIRC.

Some say you should not pull breakaway plug, but I do..
I am a new owner and have been reading my book and it says to not do this as it will mess with your battery or really draw it down. Just my 2 cents. I just bought one of thoe plastic chocks I already had one glad I did not buy more, I will be using those with 4x4s

Well this got me thinking about the crappy plastic chocks that I am using and I then realized that I work for a company that distributes heavy vehicle parts (Traction distribution Centre) and we probably have something that would work and would not cost me a lot. Here is what I just picked up (2 sets). My cost $17 / setName:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1403301536.885855.jpg

The TT was all hooked upo and ready to go the next morning. My bride asks me why I don't unhook the trailer and take the truck to fill up with gas. This would avoid pulling in and out of the local gas station. I un plugged the lights/brake cable, I un hooked the chains I raised the tongue and disengaged the ball. All ready to go...right??? NO...I forgot to take off the sway bar!!The TT did a nosedive into the dirt. It took me a minute to figure out what to do but I got it back up on the block with the only harm to my ego.ARHHH!!!!
