We also use the orange blocks (10 of 'em), mainly for leveling up one side under the tires, which seems to happen any place we camp. Hubby also cut four 6x6x12 cedar posts (very lightweight) and put a handle on each's one end to place and carry. These we use under the jacks. Store them in an old Coke crate that slides in and out easily in the storage compartment.

Tried several combinations of the plastic blocks and found that nothing worked better than 18" sections of PT 6x6's.....

I use leveling blocks in the front and plastic cutting boards on the back but after looking at what OldCoot did, I might just change and use his idea.

Old coot cut out the need to carry a lot of this stuff around which is nice but with the Roo I find I need several blocks under each Jack to stabilize their Trailer. They are not as high as my Shasta was but high enough to need a few blocks under each Jack.

I carry 8 pt 4x6 cut to 16 inches. Used two under tongue jack which I have a 2 inch conduit strap to support bottom of my flagpole. Two each under the rear stab jacks which shortens the drop down. Two under the front stab jacks which the pads are lower to the ground. All have a 3/8 inch yellow rope stapled on with fence stables for easy retrieval and to carry. Also have a collection of 1 inch and 1.5 pt lumber cut to 14 inches to level one side of txt in increments of 1, 1.5 or 2.5 inch as necessary. All these fit in a old milk crate. Lumber came off a deck my neighbor installed as scrap.
