In our experiences with the State parks, the camp sites are somewhat level. I can easily see at least 1 lift block.. Both Joe and Jagiven do make sense with their suggestions.. I guess I am just going to have to set it up and try out different combinations to see what works best for me. Obviously if I see that I need 2 or more blocks and one of the wheels are lifting off the ground then both need blocks for sure... Thanks again for sharing... You guys have been a lot of help..

I'm not strong enough to level more than 1 axle at a time....

If we stop for just a few days I level one axle. For longer stays I do both.

It depends on the amount of leveling needed. I use Lynx Blocks. But I always balance the axles with not more than one difference. Many times one block under one axle does the job. Stability has never been an issue. My X-Chocks contribute the most in regards to stability.

For the extra 6 seconds it takes why not do both?

I am of the "both" camp myself. I only asked because I had seen conflicting information and wanted to get the real low down as it were from others with real world experience..

Seann45, if you add more blocks than needed then the other side of the trailer is now high. It is not about the extra 6 seconds, it is about having a level trailer.

As others have said it depends on how much lift you need. I use 1 1/2 inch blocks so I keep my axles no more than 1 1/2 different from one to the other. So if I need to go up 1 1/2 inches they each get 1 block if I need say 2-2 1/2 one axle gets 2 and the other gets 1 block.

How do you chock the wheels on the side with the blocks if you block both wheels?
