Jack Pad Dimensions - For new Steel Garage Pad

Hi,

I'm looking to understand the exact location/width / heigh distance from my 2018 Cornerstone 45F Entegra (CAD drawing would be ideal) so I can get the proper re-inforcement pads put into my interior garage.

Would anyone have such information?

Thank you!

Just curious, are you going to completely jack your coach off the ground with your Jacks? Assuming your pad is level, the vast majority of your coach weight will be carried by the tires. The jacks will stabilize the coach but not carry a huge amount of weight unless you are going to lift the coach. We built a 60x38 pole barn with a 6” steel reinforced pad and nothing special for the jacks. Have had no issues in 2+ years. Now, I may have misunderstood your question or intent

Unless you are never going to change RV’s, and are going to park in exactly the same spot every time, I don’t see how the dimensions you are asking for will be relevant. You really need the entire floor to be strong enough to carry the desired load or you will have no flexibility in using the building.

I understand your goal I think - trying to build stronger only whete needed. If the building is really large to cost justify build stronger only where the coach will roll and set.

We had a similar situation when we built our 42x60 shop. First tool was a 10k 2 post lift. Where to put it? Are you sure? Etc. Opted to do entire floor strong enough so we could move lift if we wanted to or put another lift in. More money up front but . . .

I agree you may be over thinking the concrete. You might want to make a little thicker pad, 2 inches, and place 1/2 inch rebar on 12" centers for a 5 foot by 10 foot area in the front and the rear. this will give you plenty of area for another coach and will be stronger than a small pad. Overall the concrete in the cheap part. Hope this helps.

Hi everyone thanks you for your reply. I believe I was over thinking things...

It makes sense that I don't have designed spots for the pads since I won't be completely lifting the Coach off the ground when storing simply stabilizing it to keep some of the weight off the tires.

In any regards, I did find the jack location dimension if it ever helps someone else...

If your rear tires have about 5" X 20" of contact area that's 100 square inches of ground contact, per rear corner.

If you have 10" X 10" jack pads, its the same.

A typical concrete floor has 2500 to 3000 lb per square inch strength.

A 100 square inches of concrete will hold a lot of weight.

Build the floor to handle the tires and it will handle the jacks.
