Tag axle MH - Leveling Jack pad recommendations

I just traded up for the third MH and I have always carried blocks of wood and even 8x8's to block or level. I'm tired of carrying around a lumber store and I read in the manual it's a no-no to lift the coach up off the wheels.... guilty in the past. I'm thinking the new 42ft tag axle MH could use some large footprint, durable pads and it's time to lighten the load of wood.

What brand of pads do you like?

I also use to use wood blocks under the jacks but no more.If I would start the engine the coach would jump and really shake as it aired up so I use to put the wood down so it would slide on it. I got tired of getting out and putting these down so I sat down and thought about it. Now I retrack the jacks before starting and airing up, no more problems. Newmar has quite a large pad on their jacks, unless the ground is really soft I put nothing down anymore with no problems.
