Anderson Levelers

Just purchased our Jay Feather 23RBM. Looking at the Anderson Leveler system instead of carrying blocks of wood or giant Lego blocks. Does anyone have experience with these levelers? Seems like a great way to precisely level the trailer.

Congratulations on your new trailer and welcome to the JOF.

A number of members use the Anderson levelers and many use wood or plastic blocks. One of the issues recently discussed here was about the need to shorten one of the Anderson blocks to prevent it from being caught between the tires.

If you use the 'search' function you'll probably find those discussions. Or maybe just wait a while and you'll get responses on this thread.

Big thumbs up for the Anderson levelers. You'll thank yourself later.

Andersen levellers + big level on the front of the trailer = levelling perfection. With this combination, nothing could be easier. Back in to the site, put the levellers in place, and drive forward (or backward) until the trailer rides up on the levellers. Watch the big level in the rear view mirror until it tells you to stop. Chock the wheels, unhitch, and you're done. I've tried many different methods over the years, but nothing came close to the ease-of-use of the Andersens.

We got them at a RV dealer in Grand Forks ND during a shopping trip. I think we paid $40-something each for them. That was about a year ago when the exchange rate was a lot better.

I'd say you stay some fancy campgrounds! Last year, IIRC, there were 2 campgrounds (one was Ft.Wilderness) where we DIDN'T need to level side-to-side.
