White Hawk and BAL Extended Fit X Chock

I know there has been discussion, and maybe I missed it, but has anyone actually use BAL Extended Fit X Chock on a White Hawk yet?

Thanks
Gary

I use a pair of the extended BAL chocks along with four of the BAL jack stabilizer arms. (Similar to JT's).

If on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being bad, without the XChocks and the jack stabilizers, I'd put the kids and grandpa walking around, the movement was about a 12. With the xchocks and stabilizers, it's about a 3.

I think this year I might add another set of stabilizer arms 90 degrees to the back to just to see if it tightens it up a bit more.


Thanks

I appreciate the confirmation that the extended (17") will work on White Hawks wide spread axles. Ordering a set today!!

Thanks
Gary

Gary, remember a word of caution. ALWAYS before you unhook the trailer make sure the chocks are tightened. I level my trailer side to side then install both chocks. Then I finish up the leveling front to back and put down the stabilizers. The LAST thing I do when leaving is remove the chocks. We almost lost our trailer going down a hill a few years back because I unhooked the trailer before setting the chocks.
Finally if you find you still have some bounce then consider a set of extra BAL stabilizers mounted just in front of the axle. It helps greatly..
Happy trails,

I use 2 sets of rubber chocks before I unhitch (a set on each side of the trailer). Once I'm level side to side I put the rubber chocks down, then unhitch, level front to back, put the stabilizers down, then the xchocks go in and the slide out comes out. I read the chocks should be used to stop the TT from rolling and that they shouldn't be put on until after your level? Just how I do it, everyone has their own system that works!
