Now just raise the jacks and ready to hit the road.
Thank you for the feedback!

I will add one note about ordering a set of Snap Pads. If you order make sure you use a credit card that doesn't charge a Foreign Transaction Fee. Although Made in the USA, their billing comes out of Canada and not knowing that it cost be an additional 3% because of the card I used, If I had known in advance I would have used the card I normally use when traveling in Canada to avoid the extra fee.

Excellent tip! You are correct we manufacture in Indiana with our corporate offices operating in Western Canada.

We will take you suggestion into consideration when updating our website.

Will there be Snappads for sale at Winnebago's Grand National Rally starting 7/18/16?
Would be nice to avoid shipping across country.

From talking to them they don't make them for Motorhomes. Just 5th wheels (smaller pads)

I asked for my Fleetwood Storm and they said sorry....I asked for our new Thor Tuscany 34st and again sorry "coming soon" That was about a year ago and still waiting.

I made my own out of horse stall pad which is the same material.

Me too. What are they supposed to do, make a bigger footprint?

I put mine on today.

I had my neighbor come over and I used the manual jack mode to raise and lower the jacks as he lined them up and sprayed them with soapy water, I could hear them "snap" on as I lowered the supports. It was very easy with a helper, took about 10 minutes or less. After that I auto leveled the RV again and it was a much smoother and quieter level than ever before and I could feel the "softer" landing, very noticable. I have it on my RV park pad made of asphalt next to my house. I think I am going to like these and for under $100 it is well worth it. IMHO.

My only complaint is they need to be clear on how to install on motorhomes, skewed to 5th wheels.

But is is pretty simple, soapy water them up, line up and drop the leveler down and they snap right on!

Hi Jerry,

We won't be at the rally but if you'd like us to send them to an address at or near the rally, while you are there, we will ensure your pads get to you on time.

Although the original SnapPads are geared towards LCI's 'Level up' & 'Ground Control' systems, which are found mostly on 5th wheels, they do work on motorhomes as well as long as they are equipped with LCI's jacks.

Promise we are working on new versions. We haven't forgot about you!

Good question!

The environmentally friendly aspect is referring to the fact we produce them from recycled rubber. So by purchasing SnapPads you're helping keep used tires out of the landfill.

The main purpose is to act as a permanent jack pad. Install once and forget about them. Frees up some storage space for other more important items and now you won't have to crawl underneath your rig when setting up.

Yes they give you a larger footprint (61% more surface area per foot to be exact). Which prevents you from damaging the asphalt at the RV park or pushing through soft terrain.
They also help protect you jack from damaged cause by rocks, gravel and other road debris.
As 'KTM251ss' mentioned the rubber material dampens vibrations when you move around your RV. Giving you a more solid feeling.

Ideally we would have liked to make them thicker, wider and generally bigger but for clearance and weight considerations our testing found the 11" Octagon to be the optimal size. (At least for LCI's jacks)

Hope that helps Here to answer another questions you may have.

Snap Pads - WE LOVE THEM!

We just put them on our leveler bases and love them. No more bending over to add extra stabilizer support. My husband keeps them clean with an occasional leaf blower if needed as they can collect dirt and debris if you are not careful. A larger base with drains would be a better design but we are very happy with ours. We have not noticed an issue with a collection of water though.
