Sounds legit right there.

Oddly enough, in debate we call this the Burden of Proof fallacy: https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/burden-of-proof

I'm one who couldn't use them due to clearance between the wheels. I sent them back. I was on uneven soft ground and that probably had something to do with it. As I recall I could barely fit them in on hard, level ground. But who needs levelers on level ground.

So what do you use to determine level, so that you know when to stop?

The level on the front of the trailer, same as any other leveling device. I watch the level and signal my husband when to stop the tow vehicle.

If clearance is tight the Andersen website says you can shave 4 inches off of the small end. With twin axles that would only be needed on one of the two that was fitting into the space between the tires.

For leveling on my FC25 I had a small commercial piece of high strength Velro, small 1 inch square, on the bottom of the front window. When I got to the camping spot I would attach one of these to the window. Picked out the low side, positioned the Andersens, and then would pull ahead until I got the green light, watching in the rear view mirror. Set the parking brake, go chock the tires and then disconnect.

I've been testing an iPhone app from Harry Schlangmann, Harry's Heavy Duty Camper Edition. With a small device from TI, mounted in the trailer, you can do the balance act with an iPhone, iPad or for those real technoids coming soon on the Apple Watch. TI device is very inexpensive.

I wonder if the axles are closer together on the 25fter. Here are mine.

I was going to get another set of Roto-Choks and had measured the gap on the 2015 Classic. Measures 3.5 inches. Picking up the trailer next week and will see whether I need to trim one of them down. Looking forward to having to make that decision They worked fine on a 25 with 15 inch tires.

OP: yes and I love them!

Bold - are you actually putting the chock wedge under the wedge itself? I would imagine that would be very slippery and unstable.

I understood the chock to go on the opposite side of the tire from the wedge like this:

I put the wedge under the front lip as you have them Steve. In Bolds photos looks like the tires are still on the pavement and just blocking to keep it from rolling.

I wonder, is it better to push back onto or pull forward and on.
Hmm, might cause a heated debate.

2015 27 FB.

Those are 15s (the p rated Michelins).

You can use the Andersens backward or forward - sideways is a real challenge :-)
