Tri-Leveler or Legos are for leveling, but you probably could use them for clocking.

I use chocks in front or back of the trailer to keep it from rolling, and the Legos (if I need them at all) under a tire to level it from side to side.

Eileen,
What I meant was how do you chock a wheel that is on a lego stack? Perhaps you simply don't and only chock the wheel on the opposite side of the trailer or make the stack longer to put chocks on top of it.

Same question applies to the tri-level although it looks like they automatically chock one side of the tire.

Jim --

Unless I was desperate, I probably wouldn't use the legos for chocking. I'd want something that would actually prevent the trailer from rolling, and the legos probably wouldn't be very effective, especially on an incline.

I don't own the tri-level, but it looks more like you drive up on it to help level the trailer side-to side. Don't think it's at all intended for chocking.

Jim,

We have to use the legos to get our Egg level on the pad at home and after unhooking, we do chock the wheel that is elevated due to a slight incline in the slope of the yard. It isn't as secure as the other tire but hey, something is better than nothing!

Yeah, I just stuff the chock under the wheel right on top of the leveler, and it hangs out in the air an inch above the block below. I assume if the Casita started to roll the far end of the chock would dip down and cram into the leveler block below, allowing the trailer to roll no more than a couple of inches. Am I wrong in assuming that the chock would not simply get crushed and allow the trailer to continue to roll?

When I chock on top of a leveling block, I always turn the chock over. It works better that way.
