Our set-up guide is- if we are planning to stay more than two nights we unhook, set up the tripod and chock the wheels. If passing through we don't bother but we always put down the rear jacks every night. IMO the tripod works but we are looking at the SteadyFast system. We also use slide stabilizers if we set longer than two days. Takes the pitch an side roll out to some degree.

Steadyfast and X-Chocks work great. Only movement we feel is when the washer is in its final spin.

Tire leaks are a legitimate concern but we observe tires and do a thump test every couple of days. We use the slide supports as they were intended - to support the slides not used as "jacks" as some rv'ers call them.

Been camping with my dad in his 5ver every year for a 9 day stretch. 4 people in the 24' long BH, yeah it gets crowded, but only use the front jacks, chocks, slide stabs and rear stabilizers and its as solid as a rock. Really surprising sometimes.
