We recently bought our 2003 DSDP 3802. I need to make some jack pads. I bought a 2x12x8 treated board. Would you just cut a 12x12 section for a jack pad or would you make the pad double thickness by screwing 2 12x12 boards together?

Thanks for your advice,
David Phillips

David, I would just cut the pads 12x12 and let it go at that, the pads are already 2" thick that's plenty. Ed.S
P.S. Good luck with your Newmar Dutch Star, are you going to the Newmar International Rally, look up the page for complete details.

Edmund- Thanks for your post. The Rally is little too far, maybe the next Rally will be in our neck of the woods & we can attend our 1st Rally.

Hi Dave,
I cut my pads at 16" lengths. This is due to my inability to get them centered under the jacks. My jacks come down at an angle and the extra inches keeps me from having to move the pads to get them centered on the jacks.

Gary - I have 8 feet of prime lumber and I was thinking about making the pads about 15-18 inches long. The longer length should help with the weight on the pad. Thanks for your post.

RVCPA Welcome to the Newmar forum and irv2
You have a heavier coach than mine, I just got a 4x4 3/4 inch pressure treated plywood board cut 12"x12", did have 2" boards but jacks split the boards when ground was unlevel. A bigger board may do the trick for you.
When you want to become an offical member of Newmar forum lets us know and we can do it for you.

Hey David, I saved the lumber for the new deck and bought THESE

Yes, they're a little on the expensive side,but they're handy and store in their own bag....
