Anderson levelers are easy to use. But any method works. A two by six or two, stackable plastic block things, it's not rocket science.

Anderson seems to be very popular. I wanted to see what people use.

In practice do you only EVER level one side?

Not being familiar with the Anderson leveler, I went to their website to view the video. It looks easy, but they show leveling only one side.

Have you run into very difficult situations where you have to level both sides but have each at a different height? I am not sure I have found this situation, but I can imagine a case where with a dual axle, you have a hole to drive into where your lowest set of wheels will end up... or does this never happen?

I haven't ever had to level more than one side. Why would you have to level both? If the left side is low, put Anderson that side and rise trailer to level. If right side is low, put under right side tires.

I'm pretty new to AS, but have never had to level more than one side of a travel trailer. Curious if others have had, but I just can't see where you would ever need to raise trailer on more than one side....

Been there, done that. Just used whatever I had. Stackable blocks I think.

We were in a site with a slope both ways, side and front.

Just remember to put the chock on the tire that is on the ground and not on blocks or on a stack.

It was just for a day anyway. No problem.

Primary Anderson. I also carry a bag of plastic blocks and several 2X8X18 pieces of treated pine. Need to be prepared for different surfaces and extremes. On the Blue Ridge Parkway this past summer some of the sites were so bad that I used all three at one time or another for the wheels and for the tongue jack.
