Thank you very much for the feedback! We would have liked to make them larger but for weight and clearance considerings we found the current size was optimal. Very recently we released a version with drainage channels called SnapPad XTRA. We did this because a number of our customers suggested drainage as well, although a large portion (like you) haven't noticed any standing water issues. Depends on your location I guess.
Thanks again. Enjoy your Sunday!

I think they are ridiculously priced for recycled rubber and a waste as they are debris catchers. Also my jack pads are already low to the ground and I don't need to make them even lower to catch on uneven ground.................

Hi schrod,
Hopefully you get an opportunity to see someone that has SnapPads installed.
You can see what some of our customers think here and here.
The main benefit is you no longer need to mess around with jack pads.
Other benefits include...
Hope that helps. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

I would use them but I have larger leveler feet. It is a pain putting pads under the jacks.

I scoffed at first. I doubted them too. Then I read more, thought more and considered the PITA effect (? Affect) of having to put pads / boards down in different situations, including my own driveway.

I was wrong. They save me extra work of placing padding / loading blocks and the work to get them just right. The price is very fair. They are of very high quality. I'm extremely satisfied .

Just complete a 350 mile trip. No problems.

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!
KTM. What jacks have you on your Sunova? I have a 2011 Sunova 33c and worry about whether or not they will fit.

LCI Jacks with round feet. Measure the diameter of your jack pad base and ck on their web site.

My coach has a really low ground clearance and the jacks are level with the bay door bottoms and I am worried that Snappads will reduce my ground clearance even more, at least an inch, and they may get scrapped off when pulling out of a parking lot.

Generally jacks are located near wheels and for the pads to scrape, the wheel would need to be flat.

These are not for me because my jack pads are actually square.
And like some posters have said earlier, not a fan of loosing anymore ground clearance.
It takes me about 1-2 minutes to place my 3" x 12" Home made plywood jack pads. I have added strap handles and use a spare awning puller to remove them when leaving a site. Personally have never has an issue and they work great for my application. Stable and strong...

I do like how they added drainage slots in the upgraded model which also costs more, but a handsaw could do the same thing by the looks of it, and save you a few bucks.
And the slots also make the pad easier to install/snap in place...

Just my 2 cents on the matter
