I have Lego blocks for leveling roll (side-to-side or yaw) angle, and I use the tongue to level pitch (front to back elevation). My goal/piont is simply to provide set-up stability versus the boat-on-water feel when we're in the cabin.
Where is the best point to place them? Please don't respond with the trash, that's not at all helpful and not a mechanically sound response.
As close to the rear bumper as possible.

Thank you, that was my initial thoughts and the frame rails are easily identified for stability.
