I use the BAL on one side of the pup.What do you use on the other side to keep it from moving?
Rubber chocks bought at Harbor Freight
At home - a rock. At campsite- rocks or 2X4 piece of wood block.
Wood chocks made from a piece of cedar 4x4 post..
I bought this to use on the other side of my bal leveler. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001UGPEJA/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?qid=1465038693&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=bal+wheel+chocks&dpPl=1&dpID=31drsLtdmgL&ref=plSrch

Two pieces of firewood. Have been using the same pieces for years. This is the second set, as I left the first set behind during a hurried pack up and bailout due to approaching snow storm. Second set has been spray painted bright red.........
I am partial to a braking chalk. It helps restrict shimmy when in the pup. I used to put pressure on the chalks with the tv then have DW block them before dropping the trailer. That also helped with the pup shimmy.
2x4s, front and back behind each wheel. However I found that the trailer was much less wiggly when the chocks are tight. So now I get the trailer positioned, put chocks in front and behind, then pull forward an inch or two, then get the DW to kick the reach chocks in further. Makes them nice and snug.
I use rubber chocks from Harbor Freight. However - I plan to pick up a BAL tire chock to help further reduce some of the bounce I still have when set up.
I use plastic chocks in front of and behind the tire.
When I've got the camper where I want it on the site, I put a chock behind the tire, back the camper into it, put the other chock in front of the tire and put the truck in neutral. Then I put the BAL on the low side tire, unhitch and level the camper.
The camper hardly moves even if when I practice my squaredancing routine.
We use the plastic chocks on both sides. I get them in pretty tight and don't have any movement issues.
