I used to use some home made ones, they were excellent but very heavy. Since I started using Poly Vulc's Footing pad I love these. I have used them to stack and I can use my awning wand very easy to position and retrieve them. I bought mine from A-Z Mobile RV in Paola, KS, you can buy them online for $16.

I found these at Home Depot Envirotile Cobblestone Earth 18 in. x 18 in. Rubber Paver-MT5000637 at The Home Depot

They are 18' sq and about 3/4' thick, heavy duty rubber. I drilled a 1" hole in one corner and position them under the jacks with my awning hook. They provide a very good pad for concrete and hard packed gravel. They are easy to store in one of the storage bays and I bought 8 so that I would have spares. They have held up very well with no cracks. All of this for a low price.

I made my own 6 years ago from an eight foot treated 2 x 10. Eight pieces about 9" x 12", the size that two wide would just fit in my smallest 24" wide storage compartment. After a few years a couple of them split, so I just stacked 2 of them cross wise and screwed them together, installed a small eye hook to pull them out and now they work fine and give me 3" of lift under each pad and are strong enough to resist bending on soft ground the way a soft plastic or rubber pad would.

Whatever pad you use just don't forget to pick them up and put them back in your storage compartment when you raise the jacks, take in the slides and drive off.
