Thanks, those of use with heavier rigs need a little more support than the oem jack feet provide. I always use my pads unless on cement to avoid sinking into the asphalt or grass. It is a pain to get out the pads and throw them under the rig. And it always seems to be raining and muddy.

An observation as we transition from a very heavy fifth-wheel to a mid-weight motorhome, the jacks on my trailer are near the edge and the pads are easy to slip under them. The jacks on motorhome tend to be close to the frame and you have to get down to get pads under the jacks. If the RV manufacturer felt 9" jack feet are enough, then 11" SnapPads should be an easy to use improvement.

Yup, Exactly.

Yeah we hear that a lot.

Has there been any reports of the SnapPad helping stop the Lippert jacks from popping? I have read that using jack pads help.

I really like the permanent installation feature, but the Snappads are only slightly larger than the standard jack feet. Would be much more worthwhile if the Snappads were about twice as large.

PowerJack Cupped Feet

This is a product I would REALLY like to try -- is there an 'update forum' for info if/when additional models are available?

I just returned home from an eight-week cross country trip from Tennessee to California and back in a 40' Class A; there were very few nights we were able to level without pads -- as others have mentioned, the existing feet tend to settle (at best) or bury themselves unless we were on concrete. I use 2 x 8 x 12 wood pads, but they are a pain to retrieve and position... usually at night, sometimes wet or raining, always an aggravation to pull them out of the storage bins and kneel down in the camp surface to place under the bus.

While perhaps a non-issue for others, it is certainly a big one for us. Permanent injuries from an accident limit my mobility -- climbing, kneeling, bending, lifting, etc. Not only is my current remedy inconvenient, IT HURTS! I would love to know when a PowerJack option is available.

Great feedback! We hear you loud and clear!
We have already begun designing new versions to fit on additional leveling systems. After they pass rigorous testing we will make product release announcements on our website, social media and iRV2 'vendor spotlights'.
I can also put you on our waiting list. Just email your name, type of rig and leveling system (jack foot size) to info@rvsnappad.com. I'll contact you directly the moment the new version becomes available.
Up to you!
Thanks for your interest. Here to answer any other questions.

Hi Grant & Pat

Please excuse the delay in responding to your question.
By 'popping' are you referring to the jacks slipping?

If you're interested here's a quick video of a customers experience.
It may help give you the answer you're looking for.

You can contact me directly at info@rvsnappad.com if you have any other questions.

Thank you.

Hi Jerry,

From the pictures it appears the pads aren't much bigger but they actually provide over 50% more surface area from the original jack feet. We wanted to make them bigger however for weight and clearance issues the 11" OD Octagon shape proved to be the optimal size.
More info here

Thanks for the comment!

We would like to have a SnapPad for our larger PowerGear feet. We are using poly pads but it is a reach to get under to reach.

I've installed the Snap Pads on our 43' 18K 5th wheel and love them. Don't worry about putting down something else for pads unless on really, really soft ground. And as commented earlier, always seemed to rain just before getting ready to leave, thus pulling out wet and muddy pads to put into the storage compartment. Now just raise the jacks and ready to hit the road.

Great to know Dale & Mark! We have already started on a PowerGear design and are aiming for a release sometime this year. We'll keep you updated!
