Chocks Pads and Leveling – Parking Safely

 

For regular cars and smaller vehicles, chocks pads and leveling might not be of much use compared to handling bigger vehicles like an RV or a trailer. These special vehicles carry hardware and equipments that ordinary vehicles don’t. In grounds where they’re stationed, the uneven landscape can be a risky proposition.

 

A regular car’s handbrakes can hold off any sliding from where it’s parked. Cars are parked mostly in places where the grounds are level enough. RVs and trailers are usually taken and parked in places where the grounds could be uneven or are not even made for vehicles.

 

Hardware-heavy

In addition, RVs and trailers are way much heavier than ordinary vehicles. They are laden with all the needed hardware and equipments used in homes. All of these (refrigerators, stoves, air conditioners, tanks, and other equipments and provisions) greatly add up to their overall weights.

 

The slightest incline in the ground where they are parked in without the chock pads will have gravity transfer the RVs to lower parts of the place (sometimes with very bad consequences).

 

 A slight tilt to any side of the RV could move all the things inside to that side that is lower. The levelers will even out the incline in your RV floor where you can walk without the feeling of going downhill.

 

Leveling tips

Leveling your RV or travel trailer helps in many ways, and not just making sure your refrigerator works fine or maybe frying an egg and having the egg near the center of the pan and not crimped up on one side. A slight incline and your doors might not close or open correctly without a snag.

 

Assess first how level your RV is from side to side and front to back. Some 2 X 10 wood pieces (or plastic leveling blocks) can help level up your RV. Mark where the wheels of your RV are and place the blocks near them and drive the RV onto the pads.

 

Checking and re-checking

After the first drive-through where your RV is on top of the pads, you can check and recheck the correct height you think each wheel would need. (Some prefer to have some slight incline of their RVs either front and back or from side to side for some personal reasons.)

 

Do the same procedures again and until you get the right height or the preferred one you want for each side and ends of your RV. By this time, you would know how many pads you need to level your RV the way you want it. Secure it well and you’re done.

 

Other items

After you finish, chock your tires with a wheel chock. Your tongue jack will help you finish off the leveling job from front and back. (If your RV trailer has tandem wheels, use blocks under both wheels.)

 

The first thing is to level your RV or trailer from side to side. Once that is in order, follow it up with adjusting the height of your RV with the tongue jack from front to back. Chocks pads and leveling are necessary, or you can never park safely enough.
