DICA Outrigger Pads, RV Jack Pads, AlturnaMATS, Wheel Chocks
Thanks for playing "What do you use".
When we first got our MH I did some searches for jack pads, found the dica pads and thought they would be great ... until I got a quote
I decided they just weren't worth the expense for me. Now I carry at least four 4x4 sheets of cut plywood, along with a bunch of short pressure treated boards that are scraps from a deck build.
I use the plywood nearly everywhere we go to give myself a solid jacking platform, and when I need to get some extra height out of the jacks, I'll stack up some of the short pressure treated boards.
If we're camping on grass, or in wet weather, I usually carry an extra four 4x4 plywood sheets to put under the tires/drive up on.
