Best way to block axles

Full Disclosure: 1st time owner of a 2019 Forest Ridge Sierra 5th wheel 383RBLOK.

Question: When storing/parking long term, I have been reading about people blocking their axles off the ground to remove the weight off the tire to prevent damage to the tires.

I work in the construction industry and this will be home away from home while on projects. So it will spend a majority of its time setup for full time living.

What is everyone's best tricks to accomplish this? Input/ideas/pictures appreciated.

I've seen the rollup TrailerLegs, but I have a huge concern with un-hooking/hooking up and knocking the trailer off the legs and causing extensive damage.

I use x-chocks. Goes between tires and expands to lock in place. It also helps with movement while inside. I have never jacked up off ground other than maitenance
