I will use cement blocks like Jollyman, except, I will use 2 blocks stacked side by side, like Stuff did, and sitting on a plastic footer. I got them from the dealer, when they delivered it. Thanks.

When I moved my trailer back after the great flood scare this year, i only used 6 of the 8 blocks i made and it works good to.

We have a 40 footer on a seasonal site also.
First level the trailer side to side by the tires. Then you can level it with the front trailer hitch. Then place blocks in at least 4 places on each side, and use a hard wood wedge to tighten the blocks to the trailer frame. you should be able to get some of these wedges from your local dealer. Double check the level at the various areas. We used a bottle jack to fine tune each area, and it worked out great.
I hope this helps

Looks good. I think I will double up on the block like you did. I only have single stacks.

I think double makes it a little more secure. The dealer provided the plastic pads underneath the cement blocks.
