Blocking trailer

Hello all
We have a 2018 27.5 fifth wheel. We're looking at parking our fifth wheel and using it as a seasonal trailer. We're going to block it up to minimize the movement of the trailer. What would be the best blocking points to help with this?

I've watched many office trailers get blocked up, and for your fifth wheel, probably concrete blocks stacked to almost the frame, and wooden wedges driven between the upper block and the frame. Maybe at four or six points under it. Front, middle, and rear.

The framing on those office trailers are beefier than an RV, but for a 42-footer, they only used eight points of blocking.
