Looking at adding a 41 gal tank / tool box to our F-350. Our previous F-250 only had 26 gals and that was a pain. The 350 has 35/36 gals but I like the idea of an extra 40 and it will allow me to buy...

I have been following this thread. Been kinda humorous. If you are running of the fresh water tank (boondocking), I would think you would be in a conservative state. But as that is - I recently had...

@DQDICK
They do work as shown. Place them against the tires on front or behind and drive upon them. Use the wedge to lock in place and act as a chock. To get off, you move the trailer a little onto...

I used to use 2X12 boards, but last year I bought the Anderson leveling wedges and love them. I am a big proponent of keeping the tires solidly on the ground and the Anderson wedges make that easy....
