2 x 10/12 permanently attached to jack pads

Does anyone permanently attach their 2 x 10/12 to alleviate the problem of storage and having to get down to place them, then retrieve, clean etc. I lag bolted mine to the front landing leg pads and the rear stab jack pads. 45'd the top edges and painted them black,

Most sites we seem to camp in are well gravelled, and we don't use anything under the jacks, unless one landing gear leg is a bit higher than the other. Then we just shim the one, and as that is often a different height, we have a variety of different planks for that.
So, long story short, I see no need for the pads.

Since we normally park on concrete at home, the pads got scuffed and as a result, when it rained, the pads would leave rust stains. The wood protects the pads and prevents rust stains on concrete not only at home but at the campgrounds where we go in FL.

I doubt many people camp on concrete.
Just sayin.

Fawn Ridge @ Deer Creek in Davenport, FL has all level concrete pads, patios and driveways(not level) which is one of the 2 places we camp in FL from Nov to mid Mar. The main concern was the rust left on the concrete at home.

If that is the concern, I would rather attach rubber pads instead of wood.

Some how a post about permanently mounting 2x's on jack pads got twisted around the axle about something totally unrelated.
