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

The only time I am concerned with clearance is when I pull off the high end when breaking camp. As the leveler tips up, it just contacts the front tire (if BACKING off, of course). I am not sure it is an issue, or could be, but I might trim off 1/2" from the tip.

(16" wheels w/ Mich LT225/75 R16)

I think they are great. Even used them once to lean the trailer toward the dump station when the ground sloped away from it.

I have used them for one year. They work great and they are indescruptable.

Double, you can do forwards or backwards when you roll onto the Andersens. With a ProPride/Hensley better to pull forwards so that you don't swing the hitch head.

If you need to do sideways then a crane is suggested

One of those wish "I had thought of that"

Have them, love them, don't need anything else. All seriousness aside they work great on our 29' Excella. I highly recommend them.

Indeed, we did use them incorrectly.

Thanks G ! Brilliant
As a newbie with Airstream and P3, I am still trying to get the hookup and unhook to be a smoother process. It's true that too frequently I get that hitch head turned an cannot put the jack down.....
Never a problem with a fifth wheel. 😑

That's a really good idea! Since they are so easy to deploy, that would be no trouble at all.

DT, no debate required. Just what is right for you and the situation.

Hate to state the obvious but you get out and look.

Have them, based on forum input, use them, based on my own decision, like them based on my co-pilots input and her not having to lug 2 or more 2x12x48 inch boards around anymore at 65 years old +. And yes we have 16" wheels.

Actually, there's a really good hint that comes from the bubble level on the front of your jack!

We've learned from experience with 2x6's on earlier trailer (with more basement storage-no room in the Airstream!) that one ring off on the bubble level is exactly one board--or about 1 3/4 inch off.

We just got ours from e-trailer and are hoping that the one will fit between the 16" wheels on our 2009 International 28'.
