I use this. I have the blocks, and blocks don't always get it just right.

This works great.

They work perfectly for our 30 International although a tight fit with the 16" Michelins.

Use them and swear by them more often than I swear at them. Two cautions I didn't see noted above (only one of which I learn the hard way... you can guess which): 1. Have someone watch so you don't back off of them... there is no stop to prevent it. 2. When lowering the trailer for departure with tandem axles, be sure to stop precisely, otherwise the leveler between the two tires becomes an obstacle that can get wedged between the tires.

Work so much better than the stackable units. Driving forward onto them is best. We use on 27 ft FC.

Which leveler? The one between the wheels?

Yes, sorry left that out of the post.

The Andersens come with chock pieces to keep that from happening. I try to remember to always use them.

I love the idea of them, but they didn't work on my 25' with 16" wheels. There wasn't enough space between the wheels. However others have said it did work for them on a 25.

See the above post on how to fix that. Cut a couple of inches off the one that goes between the wheels. A modification approved by Andersen.

Mine work great with a 27FB and 15's. I'd have to cut one short if I moved to 16's. I found that they can slide on some surfaces when setting up but stay put when set. I set the parking brake about half in the truck when setting up and move til level. That way it's doesn't move when you go set the chocks. Takes a bit of throttle to move but the 7.3 don't care! Be sure to chock andersons and let trailer settle before placing regular chocks on opposite wheels to avoid pinching one of the regular chocks.

A concern : when using the full 4" rise, half of the tire is hanging off the leveler. This seems to place a lot of pressure/crease across the tire tread. I'm not comfortable with this stress on the tires. Convenient design, but...

Never hard of that being an issue while camping, but I suppose It could be a problem if used for long term storage. Maybe one of the authentic tire pros can give their opinion.

I thought about trying that but I was an early adopter and decided to return them instead.

I have long had a 3 ft. wooden ramp slung under the trailer. Yesterday I had to get a tire off and decided to use it and one of the Andersens I had bought for my daughter's trailer. Rolling back on the ramp with 2 tires, a tri axle, and then forward onto the Andersen that lifted the center tire off the ground and made removing the tire a snap compared to using a jack.

An Andersen is now on board.

Been using them on a couple of trips now. Works great on 16 inch duals. Wish I would have bought em years ago instead of the cheap Lego blocks.
