    Morning all..... does anyone have any experience of a Milenco Leveler - I've had a look on line but not convinced one (probably need 2) would fit the bill.
    Strong enough for an Elddis Accordo, for example?
    Its just that I'm getting a bit sick of that clutch burning smell every time I try to get up on the chocks.

    Do you get the smell if you drive forwards onto them or only reverse?
    I find that 1st gear is fine to climb them without a problem but reversing gives the same problem as the gearing is not low enough.

    I used to have one that I used on our caravan it bent lifting half the weight of a 1500 kg caravan, it will not survive lifting half of a 2000 kg axle.

    Looks as if it would just bury itself if used on a damp grass pitch.

    Am I correct in thinking that you should never try and level on one wheel only because of the risk of twisting the chassis?

    If so then two of them would be essential.

    Of course I could be dreaming it but I'm sure that's been discussed before.

    I use one at a time to level up the van, working on that theory then leaving it on four wheels on uneven ground would do the same thing, The suspension takes up most of the uneveness and it works for me.

    Can't see that being correct, otherwise it would twist every time you parked on uneven ground.

    It is already twisted so you are untwisting it.

    If you want to lift 1 wheel this works better then the milenco http://www.locknlevel.co.uk/product.php?ptyp=SNGL
    I use the one I had left over from caravaning sometimes on very uneven ground.
    The standard single is a little to narrow even for a caravan, they made me one using the wider tube from the twin axle tube.

    Hi.
    I used a "Pyramid" ? Make one,very similar,it was blooming hard work,and could only be used on hard ground, as said above ,"Whatif LOL" you need two wheels lifting up? This can be achieved with the Milenco Quatro/Triple ramps very easily and they take up less space
    It could be that you are setting off straight up the ramps,a bit of momentum helps,as even a bit of 3x3 timber chocked up to the wheels will take some getting over from a dead start .

    I had one for the caravan. Yes they do get the caravan level, but only up to a certain height. It is physically hard to get it to the top setting and I do not think they would not cope with a Motorhomes weight.

    Our caravan was 1420kg, that is less than my front axle weight never mind the rear axle.

    In my view best stick to the leveller ramps.

    Thanks Guys... as I thought, probably not up to the job. Will stick to the ramps for now.
