I drilled a small hole at a angle in the corners of mine for the awning pole end to fit in and be able to push the pads under the coach or pull them out.

Nice job. I only put plywood on one side of my dual purpose jack pads.

I have six 2 x 10 x about 14" with plywood on one side, and a 45 degree angle on one end. I can use them as ramps if th ground is really not level or, as a jack pad. I have not been in any situation where I needed them for both type of application. I store them in my small front bay, passenger side.

Gave up my awning rod with my automatic awning in 2011 (Had to have the motor replaced at Long Key last month.... it's convenient, but costly if there's a problem with the motor)

Mine are almost identical to the OP. Two layers of treated 2x10 at 90 degrees to each other, spax bolted together. Small eyebolt on one side to pull with the awning hook.

The reason for the two eyebolts in mine are that I use two dowels with hooks to push them into the position/correct angle that I need. Only one is needed for retrieval.

I carry a couple just to kneel on or quick mat to lay on wet ground

I like the idea of using them to lay on. Need that to hook the safety chains to the caddie.
How about the Dock stops @ shipping doors? made from old tires then bolted together in a steel frame.
