Just picked up a seasonal site for next year. Did a search here and didn't find a lot and didn't see a forum for seasonals.

I'm looking for tips on setting up a 5th wheel on the site. It looks to be on the site for 2-3 years before we move it.

Do I need to get the tires OFF the ground or just get the weight off.

Need suggestions for blocking to support the trailer. Mine rocks a lot on the legs so I'd like to jack it up and support it to get rid of the rocking. Also it's a 32' are 4 points of support enough or do I need to add center supports.

Any good reading on this subject?

Lastly I can top the site with any type of material any suggestions here.

Well that's a start
