Which is why we use Rophor levelers.  They are similar to the Andersens, but include rubber grip strips that are placed on the ground underneath the levelers.  After installing one or both of these levelers, as needed to level the trailer, we also hammer in Harbor Freight chocks.

This is what I like about forums, inspected our chock leveling system and the components are showing a lot of wear. Decided to replace them with Rophor leveling system, like the looks of this system! Just ordered a set today. Our chocks have use expiration dates, too, already replaced them once, going to replace them next with the HF chocks from the local store later this week!

Appreciate the information!

I also recommend the four Harbor Freight chocks. We have had our since we picked up our Ollie in '22. They work well and are holding up well, pretty heavy rubber chocks. Price was right to give it a try. Happy so far.

I also use a hitch ball cover when unhooked to help keep the ball free of dust and debris

We do the same thing... it's called the last 3-4" of a beer can.  Keeps the grease off your Levi's, ha!

He's not kidding.  They are thick, heavy rubber.  The bullet would likely just knock them on the ground will little damage.  If they were braced, an hp supersonic FMJ might go through.
