Just offering a tip nothing else intended, but the last thing I do is conduct a last chance safety inspection of tail lights,
safety chains, hitch latched etc. As long as I'm going around the camper, I look around the campsite for forgotten items like gear or trash.

Made mine from 2X6's. Drilled holes in each set and drop a pin in to keep them from shifting when driving on. Add a 4X4 chock in the middle and your set. I carry two sets so I can lift both sides on sites with high sewer outlets or so I can drain into a tote (trailer has very low sewer outlet).

If you have the scrap wood laying around by all means use what you have. I have a set of Lynx levelers and they are so easy, light and come in there own bag. Even a caveman can do it...

I just use a pair of jack stands right in front of the tires. I use a bottle jack to jack up the high side first then jack up the lower side to match the high side so it is level. This removes all tire and suspension bounce and is quick to do. If you are on the ground place a 2" x 10" board under the jack stands so they won't sink. I bought one 2"x 10" x 8' and cut into 8 pieces for blocking up. I also put a jack stand under the trailer tongue once it is leveled with the electric tongue jack to remove any movement.

If you leave the wooden ones at the storage lot over the weekend, they are more likely to be there when you get back.

Wood at the storage lot, plastic in the basement
