I did the same thing, cut the first 2 X 8 5 feet long and cut the ends at a 45 degree angle. Have a slightly shorter one to go on top with no room to spare. Works great for leveling side to side as the owners manual says do not use the stabilizer jacks for leveling, just support. So far, in the campgrounds I have been to, only one board necessary for leveling.
