What does that do that your blocks do not?

Well those fit inside each other where blocks stack on top of each other and are bulkier.

I also have the Anderson jack blocks. They are more stable than wood blocks and easy to carry around.
However the Jack pad on our trailers is to small to contact the magnets, so you must position by hand.
I have the suspension lift on my trailer and do not like to extend and retract the jacks long distances, so I use a couple of 2" block on top of the Anderson.
Very stable.

I have these too! They provide stability and keep the trailer from rocking back and forth.

They help a fair bit and your landing gear does not travel as far.

rmitch,
What type of blocks are on top of the Andersons? Did you make them?

Yes I made a set for front and back. Just 2" construction lumber. I cut the corners at a 45 degree angle to fit the Andersons. Then I beveled the edges with a router. Painted them with left over house paint. Not really necessary but I had the time and materials so I made the set.
