use something like x chocks that go between the wheels and lock them by opposing force I would definitely chock both sides so it doesn't swing on you when you take it off the ball and it also helps restrict movement

Paintinfool3 , thanks for the idea but I dont thing the Xchocks open large enough to accomodate the wide track set up on the Whitehawk.....I could see that Lynx have some chock that can be use with the leveler...something that Ill have to look into
anyway thanks for the suggestion

After all these posts - TMI (too much info) renting space in your brain? Best to evict it so you can lease-out that space to more pleasant thoughts! So as the DW, I watched DH do his stuff then created simple checklists (set-up, take-down, storage in/out, how to use stuff, etc.) that now reside page-protected within a sturdy/small folder resting peacefully in an easy-to-grab spot to remind whomever is using the rig. End result? Angst gone and when the mind is muddled, a great reminder that comes across much better than nagging.

For the White Hawk, get the extended fit X-chocks; they work just fine for us.

Wow! I didn't realize that RVing was so complicated! When the DW and I bought our first TT we just figured it out as we went along. I don't even remember even reading a manual because there wasn't any. The dealer walked us through the RV store and pointed out about 6 - 7 things we needed to get started and bang, we were in business! All the other stuff we needed we figured out later. I try and keep things simple... but always evolving better ways to do something. I have learned a lot from this forum as I went along, not all at once. Which is my point. Just point it in the right direction and shove off. Everything else will fall into place and not be sooooo frustrating. Rving is supposed to be FUN!

I like WAGS approach.

If "leveling" is a big issue for us "campers", we sure have it good on the road.

There are many ways to do the mundane but necessary tasks needed to enjoy camping. The ones that work for you and get the jobs done for you are the easiest. Once you have a plan you can improve on it with experience.
Common sense will carry you a long way.

Tons of first tme RVers experience this same thing. Unfortunately tons of them park the RV and there it sits and rots away. I see thousands in storage lots with flat tires etc. They financed them and are under water to much to sell...then it's just becomes a habit to make the monthly payment.
I hope you don't get to fed up and walk away. It's a blast learning as when you figure it out...well...I did it... Camping is worth the extra effort.

I lift the tongue a tad off level. After two continuous days of rain here in the Valley, water is pouring off the roof via the "gutter" as intended. And we're level enough that the doors stay where we leave them.
