Both on blocks and each as wide as the tire tread.
I know at least Michelin has an RV tire booklet that shows that as the proper method. Here's a link to download it: http://www.michelinrvtires.com/refer...and-bulletins/
That could cause us problems as our tires are over 13" wide at the tread. So far the air leveling has done all we need so I no longer carry blocks in this rig.

My concern was more in regard to dual axle configuration on my fiver rather than dually set-up

Same thing, just in line rather than side by side.

I try to block both tires so that the equalizer remains centered, therefore both springs have the same arc. Many times this may mean equal blocks under each tire. However, if the terrain is pretty uneven, then I will use different thickness blocks or no block under one tire, whatever works best. Again, with the goal of keeping the equalizer at straight as possible.
