RV Leveling Blocks

After reading a description and watching a video of "Utility Block RV Leveling Blocks", I considered a purchase, but cannot locate them.
Can you provide a source? Any advice on an alternate set for a motorhome that doesn't mean a run on the bank?

I always used an assortment of 2x6 pieces on our 88 Suncruiser. If this 14 Sunstar didn't have jacks, I think I'd have to move up to 2x8s.

I went with a 2”x10”x81 cut into 4 1-foot sections and 2 2-foot sections. I’ve since added a couple more 1-foot pieces. We don’t have the lego-like blocks but see plenty of them in the parks both under jacks and tires.

I use 24" pieces of 4x4 laid side-by-side under each of the three jacks. A couple of 2x8x16" are for when one side of the coach is lower than the other side.

Our coach tends to move forward a bit when jacks are deployed because the rears always touch the ground before the front one does (even with tire chocks), so I need more than 1 foot of length for the jack pads.

4x4s are pretty cheap, too, and easy to replace/clean.

Chocks, Blocks and Nunchucks!

I use 4x4's when needed! I cut some 18" lengths of 4x4, I joined 2 blocks together on the ends using 12" of nylon webbing and lag bolts. They can be used as wheel chocks or leveling blocks. The webbing makes them easy to carry and they are always stored in pairs. When my jacks aren't quite long enough to get me level, I place 2 of these blocks under the jack plate. More if needed (carry 4 sets), but hopefully I can find parking spots less than 4" off-level!

2 pieces of 12X2, screwed/glued in opposite direction. Works great, then drill a 1/2 hole, spray paint the hole red, then attach a paint roller to a broom handle and you have a push/pull device for the blocks.

Andersen Camper Leveler. I've tried planks, blocks, and rocks. This is by far the simplest, safest and most effective leveling system that I've found. Opinions vary, of course.
