Jack Blocks

I currently use wood blocks when needed to not over extend jack legs. Has anyone ever used the Andersen Jack Blocks? My neighbor here in the RV park is using them and likes them. Just wandering what input forum members could give me. The blocks are pricey.

My son bought me one for the jack on my enclosed trailer. They are VERY robust! I would have to say that they would work great for the Redwood also. My guess is that they are worth the price. I think he purchased mine (one block) at Trailer Supply. If you have one of those stores near you, you could check it out before you buy.

If they store in a reasonable size, I may be an owner for a 6 pack.

Looks like they'd take a lot space for 6 of them even stacked together & for $270 would make a lot of room in my wallet. I have 2 sets (20 pieces) of Lynx Levelers for about $70 that take one milk crate, so I'll stick with them.

Thanks extasee and travelin' texans for your input, I will be going by a tractor supply in the next three days and will drop in to check them out also that's what I thought was the high cost for plastic and how well they will hold out in the hot sun if they will get brittle.

We use the yellow plastic stackable blocks from Camper World, this is the second trailer that we have used the same two sets since we had a 2004 Camio, we now have a 36RL 2017. Use them under the jacks and under tires when sites are not very level. If I recall they were around $40 each which consists of 10 blocks and a nylon case.

Talking Blocks

I made mine. Bottom square is 2x12 next one up is 2x10 square them a 2x8 square. to the top one I fastened aluminum L on 3 sides so I can slide it on and off the pad. It adds almost six inches and gives a larger foot print. Only need 4 as if you put them on front jacks unit may not go low enough to start auto leveling. Also with them I can pick the unit up to change tires on the shoulder of the highway without having to use any jacks. Painted them black when I finished and they look and work great. Cost.... about $15 total including spray paint.

I bought the Anderson blocks recently. They have a magnet on them which is a huge plus. You stick em to the bottom of your jacks and you know they are located where they are supposed to be. I love them. However as one RV'er noted. They do take up a lot of room.

I wonder if that magnet is strong enough to work thru the Snap Pads many of us have installed?

I would doubt that the snap pads would work with the Anderson blocks.
