I know I will be opening a "can of worms" but here goes anyway. I need to replace my system of leveling blocks. I have used wood and the yellow plastic blocks. In all cases I’ve had problems with cracking. I am thinking about Lynx Levelers and depend on their 10-year warranty to replace any broken blocks. I am concerned if I have to pay for shipping that the warranty may not be worth the trouble and aggravation.

Has anyone had experience with filing a warranty claim after the first year?


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

Sounds like you answered your own question.

I've had several blocks in my lynx kits "fail" but haven't bothered with the warranty. After all, they're cheap and plastic, it's no surprise they'll eventually break.

I had one break. Contacted the company and all they requested was a picture of the block. New one sent no charge within days.

I have two sets, several of them have large chips broken out, but they are still usable, and to be perfectly honest, I didn't even know about a warranty, and as said, they're relatively cheap so I won't worry about a warranty.

Based on what you say, this maybe the only option that will work for you.

1" inch thick steel plates
Might be a little costly at first
but will last longer than RV or you
more increments in height adjustments

My 2 cents worth

TOO heavy, Tractor Supply has a 1" thick horse stall rubber mat (that I could cut to size) but again very heavy.

My Lynx sets are 10 years old. Those that ride in the rig and come out while camping still look practically new. The set that sits under the tongue jack (and thus out year round in the sun) are heavily bleached but show no sign of cracking. I will be replacing that set this winter just to be safer than sorry, but I will order another set of Lynx to do so.

I can't speak to the warranty question, but I've been very happy with mine.

Did they require proof of purchase and purchase date?
