Gotta love Lynx Levelers
« on: May 02, 2013, 07:34:30 PM »
We've been using Lynx Levelers for about 6 years and I have to say, I love them.  They are affordable, easy to use, sturdy as can be and store great.  Anyone else use them?

I'm not kidding, we have a set in the camper (got them when we bought the hybrid) and have not had to use them yet to level the camper.

We also have a set of the yellow ones and used a few under the rear stabilizers because they were going to fall half on the concrete pad and half off.  Used a couple on the softer ground to level it with the pad and then had one on both the pad and the blocks leveling the ground with the pad.
I could have just pulled the camper forward 6 inches but didn't feel like it.

I keep meaning to get another set of Lynx Levelers so I don't run into an issue trying to bring both axles to level.

Going from the Pup to the Class C I have to start using the Lynx Levelers.  But just like Wizfisher, I have rarely had to use them.  I also plan on getting my hands on a second set because when I need them, I'm gonna need all of them :cowboy:

We have one set of blocks, 2 sets of caps (4 each) and the chocks. We use them to level, as well as under sand pads on many surfaces.
This pic is from last year, before we got the second set of caps through a Lynx Facebook event, so we actually used everything we had and one sand pad had to be used without the Lynx. That site was a bit spongy, albeit beautiful, in addition to not level, and it was evident at the end of the trip just how much the Lynx help even with the sand pad on the stabilizers.

We have a set of 8 and now only use four under the sand pads since we got the BAL Leveler.

When camping at Promised Land SP last month, I used the Lynx Blocks and Chocks to level and secure the camper since several members were having problems with the steep and unlevel sites.

We got a set when we bought the Bayside 6 years ago.  I bought a BAL leveler, so the only time I ever used them was to level a picnic table in a site.

Now that I have the Roo, I suspect I'll need to get used to them.  I now have 2 sets, the one that I got with the Bayside and the one that came with the Roo.  I also have a set of the chocks, but I have yet to figure out how to get them put on both sides of a tire like they show in all the ads.

They gave us yellow Camco blocks with our camper and they only lasted 2 seasons.  I have heard they slide on concrete, has anyone had that problem?

I don't know that I've ever camped on a concrete pad, black top but never concrete.  :doh:

The Lynx don't seem to have any issues with slipping on concrete, at least in our driveway. We have not used the Camco blocks, but we have had the chocks, which never seemed to slip when I didn't want them to.
[The Camco chocks have a pointier edge, so were great for the tiny tires on our previous pup. The disadvantage was that they don't stack for transport, so we have another brand for the Cobalt.]

When camping at Promised Land SP last month, I used the Lynx Blocks and Chocks to level and secure the camper since several members were having problems with the steep and unlevel sites.

I did not need them at PL SP but i did at french creek when the tongue was 3" off the ground and the back jacks were two feet off the ground. I use a BAL Leveler now for the side to side.

We have three 10-packs, two 4-packs, two sets of caps and one chock.  Most of the sites we've been to lately are fairly level, so there's one or two under the low-side wheels, zero to a few under the jack stand, and the remainder are under the stabilizers (less cranking and more stable).  The caps get put on top of the stacks under the jack and stabilizers to provide a flatter footprint to sit on.

When we had our popup, we had some but they never got used for leveling.  We had a BAL and it was always used for leveling/chocking.  The Lynx were used primarily for the stabilizers if a corner was particularly high.

I just saw that it looks like Valterra apparently has a version as well.  Hard to say if it's any better or worse than the others.

When going over 4" in height, I am a little leary of the BAL only. So this weekend, I used 20 Lynx blocks to make a ramp for a 6 inch lift and used the chocks as well. Had to block up with wood one of the sandpads with a Lynx cap on top. Wish I had taken a picture. Used the BAL for a wheel lock on the non-lifted side. Didn't move at all. Very stable.
