OMG!! just was going to throw out the critter warning..ants are hard to get rid of if you park it on gravel. Spray all around your tires and jacks with ant killer... they will invade your RV within a day. It is a fact that if they get inside they will build nests and you got a huge problem. I let mine sit with a series of bait traps..It was hard to see them work but I knew the poison was going back to the farm Sure enough...within 3 days...nothing. every critter is going to find a way....even us. So if your parking or storing for awhile...be prepared. Nature will find you and will take full advantage of you not knowing what to do ....trust me.

I'd put some 12x12 or 14x14 1" or 3/4 " marine plywood squares under the jack feet to give them an even weight distribution point and something they can walk a little on during load/unload (they will walk a tiny bit), but as long as the gravel us thick enough pack and packed down cryshed minus, you shp6ukd golden.

You'll want something similar for the saw horses.
