Homemade Blocks Make Leveling Easier

Ron Wieringa, from Cole City, IL built this nifty set of leveling blocks for his Denali 5er. After he cut and secured them with wood screws, he painted them black and attached a handle.
He designed them to be used with a commercial leveling device and attached a "lip" to his wood leveling board to hold the commercial leveling device in place when used together. This allows for greater height in the leveling process.You can buy leveling devices which work well and are light weight or, like Ron, you can build your own.
I asked Ron why he designed these landing gear chocks with a "stop block" in the rear and he told me it was because when he parked where ice formed the landing gear would slip on the blocks when retracting, this "stop block" design prevents them from slipping.

  • Hello,
    My hubby Ron and I have been RV-ing for about 8 yrs, mainly towing a trailer with our 'drag' car in it to Drag Strips. He built the exact same levelars as in the pic. Handles and all, guess he was ahead of his time huh. LOL. He is not one to 'buy' the traditional items. He says, I can make one of those! We also towed our 62 Corvette across Route 66 few yrs ago (in trailer of course). We left PA in April, went 7400 miles total in 6 weeks. I'd do that again in a heartbeat!

  • Are you sure that he doesn't live in Coal City, IL rather than Cole City? I used to live 10 miles away from Coal City and don't find Cole City on my IL map!
