Smile overall tire spacing on 2015 8285IKWS ultra lite?

Last year wintered in Florida. Trailer was stationary for three months.
Moved the trailer a bit to dislodge the tire chocks when leaving, and noticed the
roughly two + inch indentations in the sandy soil from the weight of the trailer on the tires causing the soil to compact, therefore over three months time gradually the trailer was no longer level....Never occurred to me to check the level once we where there for awhile.
This year I was thinking of resting the tires on a 2" x 8" x ? long piece of dimensional lumber to prevent that.
I'm hoping someone out there can check theirs for me to find out the overall spacing of the tires so I can cut and prep the boards before we head south to pickup the trailer now in storage in North Carolina.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all

I use two, 2" x 10" x 4 feet. Cut the ends at 45 degrees (so, they don't move when I drive up on them). I have marked the the boards to match the centers of the wheels DW tells me when we are centered. Also use them for leveling when needed.
