I don't like what he did, but I am not scraping my levelers and going back to wooden blocks, either. He's already got my money. I don't see how tossing a good product that's bought and paid for in the trash is fixing anything. Sounds like that would hurt me more than him.

Hi, I never forget; Zale's and Penny's lost me close to 50 years ago. If I had anything from Andersen It would be destroyed and scrapped so no-one could use them.

I don't know if this will work, but I am contacting Andersen about a refund/return and I am buying Camco's curved levelers (similar concept, different execution - I posted a link on an earlier reply).

Whether Andersen refunds or not - I won't use them. Using them tends to promote their business. And I don't want to do that - or have to enter in to lengthy discussions with campers who see them and think I don't care about national treasures because I have the red levelers under my trailer.

Your mileage may vary...just sharing what I'm doing in response to this awful news.

I am appalled by this jerks actions. He obviously has larceny in his heart.

After all who carries a spare set of plates for their car and tt? And if he did not have a spare set were they going to steal a set from someone else?

I hope they look into a maximum penalty sentence, 1yr in jail AND $100K fine.

This is as bad as the Boy Scout leader who thought it was fun to topple the balancing rocks in another NP several years ago...

I will do everything in my power to point out this idiot to anyone I see camping who is using his products what he did.

Wonder how he would feel if someone put a PP tattoo on his wifes butt and then said oh, I'm sorry.

Should we hang him from the middle of the arch, or to the side? Sunset or sunrise, which would make a better photo op? I bet he's left marks all over this country. Sad for the kids having parents like this. I'll adopt them, and show them to respect one another, and especially nature. Catching a fish is survival...releasing it shows compassion................... Kind of ironic.... promoting camping ''nature'' while defacing it.

''PP was here'' would be better.

A mistake is when you accidentally back into the water spigot or write that 2 + 2 = 5.
Defacing a centuries old landmark, and swapping license plates to avoid capture is not a mistake. It's a crime.

Fair enough and I accept your point.

Perhaps, as suggested earlier in this thread, he should make a big donation to the BLM. It wouldn't compensate for his act, but at least it would be a start.

I vote for maximum fine and jail time. He should not be able to buy his way out of this. This was intentional and he attempted to cover his tracks.

The Anderson Levelers are coming out of the trailer. I'll use the heavy duty "Utility Blocks", which I find are more versatile. The Andersons do not work well on gravel or uneven surfaces.

I just do not want to associate with his destructive actions every time I see one of his products.

Said he just didn't think before doing it. My guess is he didn't think he would get caught. I think the best punishment would be public service cleaning graffiti but not in our parks, rather on the streets of Detroit.

If this is the kind of judgement this man exercises, how could i ever trust him to sell me a tool that is intended to protect my trailer, tv, family and others around me on the road. In his own words "I exercise bad judgment".
