Jack pads

Looking for opinions on Jack Pads. The ones I like snap over your jack pads and stay on permanently.

After watching my Fleetwood 35b jacks sink into the grass wondering if any one had good or bad experience with them.

Thanks friends.

I have had RV SnapPads on my last two fifth wheels and they were great. Iíll be ordering a set after I pick up our motorhome in a couple of weeks.

I installed them on our 2019 Pace Arrow 38N. I watched the jacks sink into the packed gravel. I have noticed since installing them we donít get the sinking nearly as much.

I did read on a post somewhere they can make it more difficult for the springs to retract the jacks due to the added weight. We havenít experienced this yet though. I also noticed on the front ones they actually have to turn to a flat side to fully retract to avoid the frame. In other words the extra width at the tip of one of the points makes them not fit fully, but we havenít had a problem at least not yet with them getting hung up. We have had them about four months and several moves.

I think with the weight of the rig the extra surface area is needed.

We added snap pads this year after several years of using the plastic manual pads. Very happy with the results. My driveway is happy too.

I too had issues with my 2016 Pace Arrow 38B sink into soft beading. To solve the problem, i purchased a pressure treated 2" x 10" by 8' plank and had Home Depot cut the board into four 24" pads. then drilled a small hole and attached loop of rope for a handle. That was the cheapest cost!
