Snap Pads

Checking to see if anyone is using the SNap Pads for your leveling jacks. I had then on my gas coach and the extra inch of thickness sure helped when it came to leveling on uneven spots.

I have a 2017 Phaeton 40AH and if anyone has them and knows which sizes to get, provided the consensus shows beneficial.

I use them on a 45 ft American Coach. I sent them an email and they told me what size. I would add them to any new coach I get in the future.

I use woodpads I made. I don't want anything connected to the jack, in case it sinks into mud or freezes. If that happens with your jacks, they won't retract and you're stuck. With woodpads you drive off, then can pry your blocks out to retrieve them.

I'm using SnapPads on my front 9" jacks - great addition! Measure the diameter of your pads and call the company - they'll advise if they have a fit. Waiting now for the development of the 12" pads for rear jacks.

I like the idea, currently use wood under pads. Sure would be nice when leveling on concrete or asphalt not to slide wood under jacks. Time to measure the pads.

I installed the SnapPad HiWay Plus (8" front and 10" rear) on my 16 Phaeton 36GH without any major issues and they worked fine on our last trip.

Hi Bill,

We now offer a SnapPad version for Tiffin's. Click here to see product options.

Something to note is that HWH leveling systems (which is what Tiffins have) can have several different set ups, namely:

- All 4 jacks are 8" round in diameter - RV SnapPad HiWay 8
- Front jacks are 8" and the rear jacks are 10" - RV SnapPad HiWay Plus
- All 4 jacks are 10" - RV SnapPad HiWay 10
- Front jacks are 8" and rear jacks are 11.4"
- Front jacks are 10" and rear jacks are 11.4"

Our 11.4" compatible SnapPad will be released in 2018.

We're compiling a master list of what models of Tiffins have which set up but for now it's best to double check what your Tiffin is equipped with prior to making a decision.

Thanks for your interest in SnapPad.

SnapPads were a great addition. We used 16" square poly pads under the Big Foot jacks for the Travel Supreme trailer for 10 years so we naturally got a set for the new Bounder. The difference is that the Big Foot jacks are at the edges of the trailer and easy to slide the poly pads under. On the Bounder, the jacks are on the frame and farther under the body. Getting on hands and knees was a challenge. No hands and knees with the SnapPads.

2015 QBH Tiffin Phaeton uses 8" in the front and 10" in the rear. Very easy to install and an excellent product. So glad to get rid of the boards and all that goes with that.

I'm thinking I will need the new ones in 2018. Pretty sure the rears on my Phaeton 42LH are the 11.4.

Perfect! HiWay 8 will work great for your 32 SA.
Probably worth waiting for the boxing day discount now but when ready you can click here for the version that will work for you.

Merry Christmas everyone!
