Good Olde Lynx Levellors do the trick for me. Inexpensive, available at most any WallyWorld down south here, and quite a bit tougher than I imagined.
The 2x8 idea 90 degree offset, screwed and glued works when at the stix & brix for longer term.
With the Lynx Blox I use the awning pulldown rod to position or retrieve them from under the jackpads. May have to rethink that if/when I upgrade to auto/elec awnings but for now that rod works great. Even sprung for a collapsible one at camper's world to save a lil bit of space.
Not using extra pads under the steel jackfeet may be a good reason RV'ers will be banned from WallyWorld lots in the future. I have seen the destruction the feet can do in hot Florida and Texas sun-baked parking areas. If you are that callous why not go to a bigbucks park and save a simple freedom for the budget minded amongst us.

Pretend for a minute they are free or a gift - and don't get caught up with price. What do you think otherwise and what do you use?

Thanks for playing "What do you use".
When we first got our MH I did some searches for jack pads, found the dica pads and thought they would be great ... until I got a quote

I decided they just weren't worth the expense for me. Now I carry at least four 4x4 sheets of cut plywood, along with a bunch of short pressure treated boards that are scraps from a deck build.

I use the plywood nearly everywhere we go to give myself a solid jacking platform, and when I need to get some extra height out of the jacks, I'll stack up some of the short pressure treated boards.

If we're camping on grass, or in wet weather, I usually carry an extra four 4x4 plywood sheets to put under the tires/drive up on.
