X-Chocks

We have used x-chocks on our fifth wheels before but never for a prolonged period. Has anyone ever had issues arising from use? We have always had good luck with them. Going to be spending a lot more time in the camper this year and I know that the 377 is a lot heavier than our previous 5er. Camp spots at the lake aren't great(as far as level).

I had mine pretty much all summer last year. On and off every week, due to moving. Never noticed any issues. The only concern I ever had was forgetting to take them off before moving.

Lol! Ya definitely remove before transit! Saw a couple posts on damage to the tires. I think people just put them on to tight. you don't need to "bo up" on em!

I left mine on all winter. No issues. Just keep them well lubed and no issues.

Just put the ratchet handle somewhere obvious and you'll remember to remove them.
The only issue I'm having is with my new maxxis they barely fit between them. Same size tires as the towmax but for some reason less space.
I never use them as chocks, just for stability. I always place chock blocks on both sides and front and rear of axles. I had a camper once tell me his trailer headed downhill out of his site with just x-chocks.

Friend has a seasonal that has to move out each winter. He's been using them for a few years with no issues.

Really should be no issue. But you may want to check tightness once in awhile, and if loose, it may be your tires are deflating (for other reasons)!

We use ours at least a week each month. No issues what so ever.

Wow, I always just use the pair of X-chocks. How unlevel was the site for the RV to roll with a pair of those between the tires?

He didn't say but I could tell he was serious about not trusting just the x-chocks. Just sayin'. Like I was saying, I bought mine, and hitch pin tripod, to help stabilize. I block the wheels with chock blocks. This thing isn't moving.
