I have big feet but I still use different length of 2 x 8 under the wheels. It has the BAL leveling jacks in back but I like the scissor jack better, can put more of a load on them.

I just installed a set of strut stabilizers on the 5th wheel and and work pretty good. I need to move the anchor point of the rear set because it is further than 18" from the rear stabilizer.
Along with the big kid LEGOs, a good electronic level(RV EZ Level) and the Jumbo Level mounted on the Pin Box. Oh, yeah I don't want to forget the DW, Nap-a-Gator, Boss, OK wife. She runs the Electronic Level on the inside.
It's only a problem with the ground is really soft and you have to readjust the level after a day or two.
Remember to follow the Manufactors instructions when levelings, mine says to level side to side first. Then do the front to back by first getting level, then lower the front down just below level. Lower the rear stabilizers, raise the front back until level. This takes some of the load off of the suspension which in turn stops alot of the wobble and shake.

I just have a few lengths of pressure-treated 2x10 boards and use them as needed. They easily stack in the truck bed next to the 5th-wheel hitch.

My leveling system for my tiple axle 5er consists of a number of 2X10X48 inchplanking beveled 45 degrees on the ends and a poly rope at each end (rope allows you to get a grip on the plank if muddy) in addition to the electric landing gear and rear stabilizers. Planking is used under the tires to level/stabilize and in some instances to "plank in"/out over soft ground/sand. In following old tractor/steam shows the CG some times leaves something to desire in quality of parking. Some commerical CG's aren't always what they are cracked up to be either.
