Thumbs up

--><div class='quotemain'>
After cracking the sides off several of the yellow type, we purchased the bright orange Lynx Levelers. We'll see how they work this weekend. http://www.lynxlevelers.com/

I had only seen the "Lynx" name on the orange type, before.
I thought that the yellow ones were a different brand.
I got the yellow ones because we have had to level-up on soft wet ground, that would ooze through and bury the orange ones.
I wonder if you can mix them together?
I'd like to add the "Stop-N-Chock" to my system.

I didn't think of the dirt oozing through, Fred. We'll soon find out. I wonder if the yellow Lynx are stronger than what we have. I'm not sure what brand of yellows we have, but they broke on the sides. I think that the tops are squares, not the shape of the ones on the link even though we did purchase at Camping World. Maybe we have an older style. Hmmmm....several people don't like the orange in the reviews, but I didn't like the yellows....so, we'll see! I can probably use the flat plastic squares that we use under the stabilizers under the blocks to keep dirt from oozing. http://www.campingworld.com/browse/skus/in...733&tab=reviews

My Stop-N-Chock is definitely shaped to fit the "bumps" on the Lynx system. Since the yellow blocks have a different bump shape, I'm sure they won't interlock. If the height per layer is the same, the Lynx chock might still sit well on a step of the yellow blocks, but without interlocking I don't know if it would stay in place properly.

I had not considered the difference between designs in the tendency to allow soft ground to "ooze" through; perhaps thin plywood underneath the Lynx blocks would be sufficient?

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I have the orange ones and have not experienced oozing.

At least, not from my blocks!

thanks for the laugh gina.

how about this related problem----my casita is sitting in, not on, my driveway. just had the driveway resurfaced with asphalt last fall. parked the casita with a neighbor's help backing it in, and knew i had to put the plywood under the wheel in front but was busy with the neighbors looking it over and all and neglected to put the plywood in place.

today i see that the wheel has sunk into the asphalt to the point where the wheel axle is only an inch or so above the asphalt level. it is going to be a problem to get it out.

these lynx levelers look great, can they be stored for others in the tutorial section?

We used the orange Lynx levelers for the past two nights and they worked well other than needing more than 10. We were at a very unlevel campsite and ended up digging a hole on the opposite wheel. No oozing!

Of course not!
Only I can pick a campsite like Lucy and Desi on that logging road!
