One I hope we'll get soon.

As others have said, lumber scraps work just fine temporarily. That's all I use permanently.

Used them for an 8 trip out west, found many times we only needed to use one. We got about half the height gain with one as opposed to both.

Had an issue where the Anderson's slid on wet grass or loose gravel. Started carrying a slice of rubber mat to put under them when needed.

When even the 2 Anderson wedges were not enough, we added a couple short 3/4 pieces of PVC board we had along. Put the PVC boards down, then the mat over those to keep the wedges from sliding on the PVC.

Still beats the heavy lumber.

Anderson levelers

Does anyone in the Surrey-Vancouver BC area know an Rv parts place that sell them?

I used a hack saw and some sandpaper on our Anderson levelers -- quick and easy.

Depends on the definition of heavy. I took some dry pine, "added lightness" and made an assortment. Pretty light and more versatile for other uses.

But I guess I'm the minority opinion on using blocks.

Fraserway RV probably has them, at a premium price.
Good luck with their web site. Probably the worst I've ever encountered.

We just use the Camco leveling blocks. Simple no problem with fitting and have always worked great. Also nice to have for landing pads under the tongue and stabilizers when the surface is wierd.

We do too, I like how light they are.

I have two bags of Lynx Levelers. Use them under a wheel, under the jack, under stabilizers and for dicing onions.
