I may give them a call, especially if I ever run into this again. Our problem happened on dry concrete and only with one wheel, but as I mentioned above, the Lynx blocks had the same problem, and only with that same wheel.

We got an Anderson kit which has 2 levelers, a larger wedge for changing tires (it is slightly larger and you pull the good tire up onto it so the flat tire can be removed) as well as 4 jack pad which all fit in the same storage bag. Used them last summer and was very impressed with them. Only problem we had was one campground had very sandy sites and the levelers sank into the ground when we bulled the trailer up onto them. Fortunately we still had 2X8 boards which we set the levelers on with the supplied thin piece of rubber between the leveler and plank and the board distributed the weight enough to no sink into the sand. Best thing about them is that they work well in tight spots because you only have to backup or pull forward a maximum of 12" to get up to 3 1/2" of lift. With planks or lynx levelers you will have to move the trailer another 3 to 6 feet to get up on the leveling blocks. If using them on a hard or slippery surface, you might need something to create some friction to stop them from sliding.

Your welcome, they work very well, we went to Livingston state park last week ,when we got there it was dark,so with the new anderson levelers we have a lot less time running to check,just place them under the wheels.( Disconnected the brake so the wheels wont slide the chocks) pull foward check your level,slide the wedge under the leverler DONE about 5 minutes..

Anyone have a Jay flight 28bhbe with these? Getting ready to order and want to make sure my wheels are spaced far enough apart for them. So people recommend grip tape on the bottom?

I just use a couple of 2x6's that I cut to the length of the 2 axles and back the trailer up on these to level if needed.
