wheel chocks

I tried the plastic ones from camper world, returned them to exchange for the bal metal ones, after more than 3 years using them on the 19 and 21 I wouldn't consider anything else. Makes the trailer as solid as a fixed building if the four legs are also down with tension applied. Sat. night we were on a hill where the aft legs would not reach the ground and the tongue was almost on the ground and I didn't have enough blocks to help in the back. The chocks worked great and almost no wiggle inside.

The plastic ones do look a little flimsy. The homestyle wooden chocks are much more solid, probably quite comparable to the Bal-X version.

I setup my RA with a pair of the plastic wedges then added 1 xchock. First time I used it and it makes a world of difference. I'm not going to bother gettiing a second one. Rock solid is not an exaggeration.

What model Bal -x chock are you Escape 19 trailer owner using ? I think you guys talked me into purchase some Bal -X chocks. Pretty soon my wife is going to band me from this website with all the purchases I have made because of reading posting here of RV toys I just got to have.

These are the ones I am using with our 19.
Amazon.com: BAL 28012 X-Chock Tire Locking Chock: Automotive
After two months of the UPS truck stopping every day my wife told me nicely that I maybe should stop reading the forum for a little while. . Most of the suggestions here were very good though!
