I have often used more than 5" of stacked orange levelers. Just read on new box "not to use more than 5" high". How high do you go on front of TT?

Thanks,

Fishy

I've never gone higher that one high except when I use them to raise a flat tire off of the ground by backing the other wheel up onto the stack. In that case I build a 6 high ramp.

If your talking about under the tongue jack on the front, I use wood there and save the stacking blocks for the stabilizers and tires to level on. I have about 6-2"x8"x 10" boards I can stack for the front jack which leaves me the stackables for everything else. The saving grace is when one end or the other is real high, the opposite end never needs any blocks. I carry the wood in a canvas bag I had laying around that a folding table that broke used to go in. Has a should strap and handle for easy carrying.

Hope your travels are safe and the friendships made camping are lasting.

Under the tongue jack I use about 6 or 7 with the leveler cap on top....Never had any issues and the jack only gets extended about 5 inches or so.

We use wood blocks under the tongue jack and stab jacks. We cut up 6x4 into 12"long sections. We even attached metal handles to them to make it easier to move them. we usually stack 2 under each stab jack and 1-2 under the tongue depending on what is needed at the site. We save the lynx levelers for under the tires.
