That's how I do it too.

Although I can't say it was my idea I found the plans on line. They will lift my 7000 pound trailer 6" if needed. All with a hand pump.

Any chance you have a link to the instructions? I would like to see how they are constructed.

X3 on the boards. I have 2x8 inch boards with one cut specifically to fit inside the tandem wheels. That way I only have to put one other 12" long 2 x8 either behind or in front of the tandems. Don't have to move the trailer quite so far from the spot I'm parking in. Works great for me. I angle the inside board at 45 degrees on each end so I can pull forward or back up easily on it. Only angle one end of the other board.

I use the lynx, but I like the boards better. I cut angels on the ends of the boards and the trailer rides up on them nicely. It's also easier to use chocks with the boards I think.

I installed a level on front of trailer. Put boards on side that needs
lifted and watch level in rearview mirror when backing up.

Have the lynks and after a few uses, they started to break! Will be using wooden boards in future

Great iPhone app for levelling

I have a great iPhone app that tells you how much height you have to bring the one side and back or front up.
On the phone I can't see the entire app name but it says RC CO..free.
It allows you to calibrate the level to ensure it is correct.
