Our Andersen Levelers arrived just as the snow began here in Michigan. I guess we are going to have to wait for either a thaw or next season!

I'm looking forward to not carrying the "lumberyard" of ramp sections I had built.

We had a nice enough weekend here in SE Michigan to go out. We are at the Algonac State Park camping in 25 degree weather!

With our 2014 Flying Cloud 30, the levelers work great! What used to take 10 minutes, now takes 1. We were leveled in no time.

Using the Andersen Levelers and the X-chocks, this is the fastest we have ever been able to level. Why didn't we get these sooner?!?!

We have really enjoyed our Anderson levelers. So far they are durable and have done the trick. The only slight issue I have had is when packing up to go, I have to back onto them a bit more to release the pressure on the chock. These levelers have made my leveling experience much better!

We've only used ours once and that was on a pea gravel pad so they sank some. But they were easy to use and we were level pretty quickly. My wife even picked them up fast.

I have used these for the last year and a half and never had them slip. Probably a total of 80 uses. Plenty of room on both my 25FC and 28FC. Just put 16" wheels and tires on the 28 and they are a little tighter between the tires, but they fit by basically jamming them in under the tire a little more. I love these as I can basically look at my level initially and I know by how far off I am, how much I need to pull onto the levelers. I pretty much hit it first time every time. Great accessory. I have had to use once with a couple of lynx blocks on ground as we were in a very uneven site. Still worked fine.

Need 2 Anderson levelers for 2-axle trailer?

I'm purchasing a 2014 FC 23 FB, 14 inch tires. I have an anderson leveler that I used on my Bambi, but curious--do I need another for the double axle, using 2 of them, or is it OK to just use one under one tire and let the other wheel hang in the air.

Actually...just reading my own words I think I know the answer, but I'll send it anyway. If I need two, will I need to cut them down to fit?

Buy another. You might have to trim a bit off one. I would wait and see before doing the surgery.

The need to trim is a function of the ground you are parked on. Flat concrete or asphalt is not the place to check if trimming is necessary. If you are on soft ground or on grass they may lift the leveler just enough to make it hard or impossible to slip the leveler in place.

Trim one before you travel and be ready for the unexpected.

What is this "Electronic LevelUp" magic that you speak of? I must have it!

Maybe something like this? I'm getting one for the upcoming season, but held off buying so far because I hate it when I buy something and a new one is released shortly after I buy it!

Here is the LevelMatePRO unit installed in the closet of our 27' EB. It connects by BT to your phone even while your driving, so you can evaluate the levelness of sites on the fly, as well as when you drive up on leveling blocks or rollers. It graphically indicates on your phone not only which way your AS is leaning, but by how many inches. All this can be accomplished with exterior physical levels, but I find this device little easier, particularly when traveling alone. Joe

How long have you had your LevelMatePRO? I have heard that the battery life can be an issue. We got one for Xmas this year and can't wait to install it!
