Leveling - One or both axles?

All,

I have seen conflicting videos and read conflicting advice in regards to leveling the TT side to side. Do I need to put leveling blocks under both axles or just one?

Thanks

I put boards under both axles on the low side. Don't want to have one with less than the other. Might not be a problem to only do one but I choose to do both.

I always do BOTH axles, never seen it done on just one.

To me common sense said both, but while looking at different videos and articles some we're doing just one. Thanks for the replies.

It depends. I use lynx levelers which give you about an inch of lift per level of blocks. If I don't quite need a full inch I will go with one fewer under one axle so I don't quite get the full lift.

We also do both using Lynx, just picked up another set about a month ago on an Amazon lightening deal. Would not want to have the entire weight of the TT (including the weight of the unsupported axle and people walking around) on a single axle.

I have always put levelers under both but recently saw an advertisement for some new gadget that you could use on one....I am not sure I would use it because of the stability issue

I use a leveling block under 1 wheel, the rear is still on the ground so it is still stable.

It depends on how much leveling I need.

If I use one block under one axle I get ˝ the amount of lift as if I use one block under both axles. So buy using different amount of blocks I get different amounts of lift. Unless there is a hole or a bad slope, I avoid having more than a one block difference between the two axles. I have never noticed a difference is stability between which tire I place the single block under. I can get the TT extremely level this way. Also, have found when the slide is extended I get a little bit of drop on that side of the HTT, so I also plan for that in my leveling.
