We've got a retractable deck at the rear of the trailer that is about 3" deep when stowed... There's 2 Pressure Treated 2x8's in there about a foot longer than the length of both tires.. Haven't needed more than that.. Not much dirt on them, and if there is, we just pressure wash them off when we get home.. And they don't take up any noticeable room.. Not like the 10 corner jack blocks we carry (6" PWF posts each a foot long)...

Aftee a full summer of enjoying the trailer we have concluded that a 2x12x5' was perfect. We carry two just in case the site is bad.

I was going to get the Anderson leveled but it does not look like there is enough clearance between the tires to position them😡

You have to cut one back to the first hole on the Anderson block and they work fine.
We have a ML23fb which should be the same axle spacing as what you have and it worked fine, it also states in the instructions that the blocks will work fine even when you cut them down.

why all the items for under the tires?

As a fairly new persons to TT'ers why do you need all the accessories for under the tires, do the leveling jacks not always reach far enough, or is this for Boondocking. Thanks in advance.

Jacks are not meant for leveling; they are used for stabilizing. Stabilizing jacks are not built strong enough to lift and hold much weight.

Not all trailers FW or TT have auto levelers.

Mine for instance only has two stabilizer jacks in the back, So I use boards or RV leveling blocks AKA lego blocks.

So I level side to side with those, using the landing legs of the lite to level front to back and then drop the stabilizes to hold the unit a little bit.
