I'm not going to make Osoyoos this year (cry), I'm probably going to be trailerless...

Jim,
What are you leveling with in your 21?
I'm thinking of sticking with 2x8 boards, but am open to other ideas.
Thanks,
Ray

I used these with success on my 19' Escape Ramble RV Levelers, Set of 2 - Intersource D10-171 - Chocks & Levelers - Camping World

I plan on using the Anderson levelers on my 21. I cut them down today so they'd fit between the wheels. Hope they work because I'm committed now!

Does anyone know if they have to be cut down for the 19 foot escape? If so, how much?

RV leveling

I also cut one of the Anderson Levelers down to fit between the wheels of the 21. Two weeks and several camp spots this past month and I had no use for them, hope they work when I do have the need.

It is always better to have and not need vs need and not have….

Jack, Did you just buy one Anderson leveler? I purchased one for each axle. I then cut both Anderson levelers so that both axles, or tires, would rise at the same time, at the same rate, and end up at the same height. Am I looking at this this all wrong?

RV leeling

Tom, I bought a pair of the levelers so I could raise one side. I only trimmed the tip of one by about an inch or so that allowed it to be placed between the two tires either direction and the other would be in front or back of the other axle and tire. If I want to raise one side by only one inch, I'll probably only use one on one axle.
Jack

Thanks Jack, you make a lot of sense. I haven't used mine yet, but looking at it, even with the tips cut off, there's very little room for error. I'll have to be pulling the center one out as I'm pulling off the wedges. There won't be much room before the other wheel bumps up against the tall part of the center wedge. It looks precarious to me, so I'll be carrying my leveling blocks with me until I'm confident that these really will work.
Tom
