If you're worried about getting the tires stuck I'd find another location to set up. IMHO What will there be to stop them from sinking the second you pull off of the wood you parked on?

It's a place we camp every year and after there was 3" of rain one year, I became very cautious about having the RV on wood so it's easier to pull out when the grounds dry. Would camp elsewhere but can't there, it's all grass.

I made some blocks outta some scrap I had. But they are 12in square 4 inch tall. I put those under all 6 jacks. I do chauk the tires when unhooking. Nothing under the tires though.

Putting the tires on wood can't hurt but like you said, puling out once the ground has dried is the key. If you pull out while the ground is wet you'll sink whether or not you parked on wood.

Yup, I learned that the easy way. I acted as a tow truck one year. Was pretty fun for me. Truck was never that muddy again either!
