No i was not hooked up to my truck. I know people do it. But if I need to leave in a hurry I can do so.

I'm not really a fan of those red cones, after using one a few times. The tongue moves in an arc rather than a line when jacked, which means it moves forwards and backwards a little. You've avoided the problem by having a relatively slick block under it, but fixing that means the chance that the cone will tip/buckle instead.

Personally I like the rigid "foot" type that attaches to the bottom with a pin. That way it can slide around a little and not have any chance of buckling or falling.

When I got my new-to-me Casita two years ago, it came with a slip-on wheel. After a few trips, I didn't find too much use for the wheel so I put on a permanent jack foot plate. I had to drill a hole in the jack post across from the twist-it notch to permanently attach the jack foot plate.

I found an inexpensive jack foot plate at Amazon.
