Do You Pull the Trailer Off the Front or the Back of Andersen Camper Leveler # AM3604  


I just got my pair of camper levelers and have to say it looked too simple. I was correct. I did have some one watch to tell me when to stop but I went too far and went over the high piece and it appeared the 5th wheel was going to turnover side to side ...may be my imagination when it went over the highest point. I then paid closer attention and stopped in time and simply placed the wedge in behind the main piece to make a perfect arc. My question is to remove the leveler for departure is it best to remove the wedge and roll backward avoiding the dramatic or just roll over the main piece as shown in a YouTube video. In the video there did not appear to be a noticeable side to side wobble when the tire rolled over the high point. Of course the YouTube was on grass and my fiver is on grey crushed rock. Please expedite your response as I am about to leave for a trip on Friday. I must admit when I saw the unit lean side to side as it went over the leveler it gave me some concern. Other than that the system seems perfect.

This is not uncommon for levelers such as # AM3604. You could back off of it or pull forward as needed. It depends on the situation and what you need to do. The slower you go the more control there will be. If you are pulling forward the vehicle should be able to keep the trailer from just dropping off. The same for backing off of it. Use the tow vehicle to gently come off the leveler.

Also trailer with more than one axle generally do not have this issue because of the travel of the suspension.

You could also turn over the longer piece that that it makes a ramp and then chock the wheel on the other side of the trailer. Pulling the trailer off then would be less dramatic.
