You need to get your rv off the blocks. It is dangerous. Your system will lift the tire off the ground if needed and having it on blocks is unstable.

Agreed, replaced with cinder blocks, proper side up and solid 4 inch cinder on top.

Why do you need blocks at all? It is very stable on the jacks. it can not fall off the blocks. If extended for over a month, spray with silicone spray.

Less movement inside with less of the rams/jacks extended. There is a difference. We are pretty much seasonal. Less of the ram exposed to salt air is also a consideration. We are right on the ocean, corrosion is a big problem. I have re-painted and sprayed undercoating, underneath, in every place I found metal.
