No I have wood blocks with me and use them when needed. Lot less cost. Also have pole with hook end to help remove and position them.

hmmmm, the main reason I use wooden blocks is to increase surface area of the pad so the ground becomes more stable... not much of an increase in surface area with this product, so I dont really see the point in this product?

We agree! Bigger would have been better. However from our initial testing we found for weight and clearance considerations this was this optimal size.

It's hard to tell from the pictures but SnapPads actually add an additional 61% of surface area to each jack. Times that by 4 or 6 jacks, it definitely adds up. We have yet to have any reports of jacks with SnapPads sinking into soft ground.
Finally, the rubber material acts as a vibration dampener so you get a solid yet soft feel inside your rig.

We realize they may not be for everyone but for those who don't want to mess with storing and placing pads every time you set up.

Thanks for the question! Have a great day!

Now that I've looked closer... I kinda do see the 61% increase in surface area. Thanks for the explanation....

I believe this only works on it none to fit MH jacks that I know of. Look at your foot if the pad will work I would grab 4 to go on mine

I use laminated wood blocks... Drilled a hole in one side so I can use my awning hook tool thing to place and retrieve them.

I own both a DP MH and a 5er. I have them on the 5er and like them. The material is very similar to the hoss pads I own for the MH so I am hoping they will be quite durable. Installation was quite easy, just used a soapy water spray and did it with a friend in about 15 minutes (6 pads) . When parking on a level site I don't have to crawl under the rig to put pads down, nor do I have to retrieve and store wet, or dirty pads. Living in the Pacific NW where it rains a lot that is reason enough to get them. We have stayed at some parks that have a mandatory pad use rule so I don't need to get under there for that either. They add a little over an inch so not "in the way" and they do not preclude using blocks if you need them to level. They do not yet have an application for the HWH curved foot leveling system in my MH but I am happy enough with the ones I have that I have asked to be notified when they are available.
