Yes great idea and since my TV is rated 350# TW which is 10% of max towing capacity, I'll use your way when I get a new TV in 5 years. I am forced to take the propane tanks inside the trailer and no heavy stuff in the front storage. I've been asking around about going over 50# of TW, will it damage my TV, so far they say not to worry. I did the East Coast trip in Canada 6000 km last summer. I measured the sagging difference before and after the trip, no change. I always do a TW audit before a trip. Your pic putting the block of wood right under the tongue is what I'll do next time.
These pics shows how I measure sagging at the rear and rising at front of TV:
From the middle of the tire well
To the middle of the tire
Below 2" sag and below .5" rise is what my TV is at when towing my TT. I also asked around and searched in the Internet, they say the numbers I have is safe for towing.
