That does look like a good system, Lyndon.

BTW, I merged the two threads, and deleted the off-topic discussions to date, that though funny, now have no bearing on the thread.

Well, I think it's a brilliant system- you ought to try to market it, or at least the design/idea.

One would think that some company like BAL or Lynx would be interested in it...

I found a system from a poster here years ago which is even easier. You buy a large level and mount it on the front of your trailer in a position where you can see it with the rear view mirror:

Trailer Levels from Hoppy on Sale - PPL Motor Homes

Then you back up until the unit is level side-to-side. Then you get out, unhitch, and level the trailer front to back. Many thanks to who originally suggested it.

That's exactly what the O.P. is doing, except that he's added the leveling ramp to back one side up so you can achieve side-to-side level....

One can't just keep backing forever, hoping to hit the sweet spot on the ground!

That's the idea, all right- thanks, Eddie!

It looks like it's made out of old tires or something, too, so it's probably not slick...and only $24.00.

I may have to consider giving my BAL up...this looks even easier than that!

Looks like similar setup only the tire must rock on it and you place the chock under the rocker Price is great I have 15 blanked out and will be delivering them at the meet in Mindon in May these will be considerable less money.also I have the 2 chocks for the other side which I feel aren't needed on a fifth wheel as there is around 1/2 ton of weight on the 2 stands.

My Trailer Leveler with
Memory
As I frequently bring along the
gathering place tent and that
in stored in
back of the hitch
and causing the need for the receptical to have to be raised considerably
I have devised this unit to remember the height needed to clear the ball hitch When you have the hitch raised enough to clear the cargo loosen hand screw
and set adjustable to center of bubble tighten pull tow forward lower front
untill fixed level centers and you now have a guide to raise the front to when re- hitching Just raise front till adjustable level centers and all willclear

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