Snap Pads on Verona

I like the idea behind snap pads, and would really like to place an order, but I'm a bit concerned about ground clearance.


The snap pad website says that the snap pads will hang about an inch lower than my 10 inch octagon jack plates. I don't think that is a problem in the rear, but the front jack plates already hang below everything else up front.


Has anyone installed snap pads on a Verona? Have you had any problems dragging the pads on uneven ground?

One of the first things I did upon getting my Verona was to install a set of Snap Pads. I have had no issues with clearance front or rear and I have a very tricky slope to go over entering my storage location - this is the closest I have come to dragging a jack but clear with several inches to spare. Clearance aside, I have been pleased with the pads. I have been on concrete, gravel, sand and dirt sites and the pads have lived up to the claims.

I have them on a Verona LE and love them. But jacks must set up a little different on LE's I would be hitting all kinds of stuff before the jack would ever hit. As far as pads there great, I was able to get rid of some of my blocking. I probably carried to much anyway, if there is such a thing. Figure if I need more than what I have it's time to move.

Had them about a year and a half. No clearance issues. What I donít like is that they fill up with road dirt, gravel, snow etc. my guess is that with the constant moisture the feet will rust out. Every couple of months I crawl under and use a spoon to try and remove all the dirt on top of the feet.

We have them and they work great. I have not encountered any clearance issues at all and the coach levels better with less dancing than before. Definitely worth the investment.

Good point I was wondering about that, I have not had them that long.

Their instructions recommended applying Flexseal to the jack feet.

With the drain slots in the SnapPads I'm not seeing a problem myself.

Thanks to all for your inputs. However, I thought I should report back on what I found on my particular coach.


All four of my jacks are bolted to frame-mounted brackets, and each bracket has a whole series of mounting holes that will allow vertical adjustment of the jack position (in what appears to be about 1 inch increments). I strongly suspect other coaches have the same jack-mounting arrangement. On my particular coach, all four of my jacks were mounted in the lowest possible position, and that could easily be the unique aspect of my configuration.


As previously indicated, I'm primarily concerned about ground clearance on the front jacks. Currently, there is about 8-3/4 inches between the ground and the bottom of the equalizer base plate. There isn't anything else in the front of the coach this close to the ground. Without adjustment, I believe that clearance will decrease to about 7-3/4 inches after snap pad installation. Given that I can make vertical adjustments, how much ground clearance should I have?

Iím not sure there is a right answer to your question. If it were me, Iíd set the jacks so that I had about the same clearance as you had without the snap pads.

Keep in mind that the more the jacks extend the more you will feel some vibration when someone is walking around in the coach.
