I use a combination of wood and 2 10-packs of plastic blocks. I use 3 2x8 scraps + a brick under the tongue jack. First time out, I used the plastic blocks to level side x side, but found it took so many that I didn't have enough for the stab-jacks. When I cleaned out my garage to sell the S&B when I went "full time", I found a 12' piece of 5/4 x 7 PT deck board. Cut it into two pieces w/45-degree ends for under the wheels, cut 2 grooves in the bottom piece that mate with 2 1x2 "tongues" that I screwed to the under-side of the top piece. That way they "nest" together, so driving onto them doesn't kick one out from under the other. Then I put a coat of deck stain on them (as much for looks as for preservation). Sometimes, I only need the bottom one; sometimes, I use both - depending on how out of level the campsite is. That leaves all 20 of the plastic blocks for under the stab-jacks. I'll use 2-6 under each jack (depending on the front-to-back slope of the pad) to keep the stab-jack from sinking into the soft sand, dirt, or asphalt pad. That enables me to keep my stab-jacks extended less than 1/2 way out for improved stability.

That what works for me . . .

I use plastic. I don't feel comfortable putting wet wood in the storage area. If it rained or such. The plastic ones you can rinse off and keep clean. Also when you need to stack them they are more stable since they connect like Legos.

We are on our second TT with the same plastic blocks. They have held up well and store great.

We use them under every jack and sometimes under tires if needed for leveling. My dad had a set for over 15 years that were used every day from desert heat to freezing cold. Still in use today and they work just fine but are sun bleached almost white now.

Used plastic stackable blocks with my Tioga for 7 years, the blocks went with it when I sold it. Now use 14" sq Hose Pads under the leverers. Made from old tires. Impervious to just about everything.
