Just cut up a 2X6 into 12-16 inch lengths - I would make 8 of them. Use 1 or 2 of these boards under each stabilizer.

You do need regular chocks. The xchocks are a secondary line of defense, but mostly people buy them to help stabilize the camper from moving around while you are inside walking around.. Your stock stabilizers are good, but they don't 100% help with the trailer shimmying around while parked..

I use some of my Lynx leveling blocks under my stabilizers. Also used the x-chocks to take away from the "bounce and roll" you get from the tires..

Welcome!! We also have 264BHW and have done one camping trip so far. I use some 6"x12" 1/2" plywood under stabilizers, works just fine and easy to pick up and store. Have added a propane cover, surge protector (Amazon), WD/Equalization hitch (from dealer slightly used), and had brake control prior.
Some things I've built for inside, shelf system surrounding the mirror (7 separate shelves) as there is no medicine cabinet, stool that also serves as an ottoman also, magazine rack (on back of dinette by door, and a TV shelf above the dinette well below noted TV mount location, this for our 32" that folds up when TV stored so have full use of dinette (note have bracing board on back of wall and used bolts to secure).

Extra fuses! Check your panel under your fridge to see which ones you need. 30 and 15 I belive. Also, I picked up a jack stand.
Under $10 and gives me a much more stable base. Welcome to the forum!

I'd love to see the shelves you built! I've been thinking about if we can place the mirror with a medicine cabinet but shelves might be a better option...
