I Can't Find What I Need!

Hi All,
Back in 2005 I purchased some thin plastic pieces to go under the coach tires when it is next to the house (on a concrete pad). The Florida sun has taken a toll on them and they need to be replaced.

I have looked all through my documentation (I keep everything). I guess I've out filed myself. Looked through back issues of my RV magazines. Googled different phrases until I can Google no more. Does anyone have information on where I can purchase the plastic pieces that fit under coach tires perfectly?
many thanks,

Why not just go to Home Depot or something and get some pieces of plastic/acrylic/fiberglass or whatever suits you? It'll cost you a couple of bucks instead of spending $50 or so on something made for the RV marketplace?

It's not exactly rocket science!

Sams has different size plastic or fiberglass cutting boards that will fit under tires.
I have a 3/4" 4x4 piece of plywood cut for tire foot print under my tires.
Its pressure treated and will last for years.
They can be stored in compartment till next stop, either type.

I use Walmart 12"x18" cutting boards. Cheap and sturdy. They make good jack pads too.

Hi Alan_Hepburn,
The answer to your question is because I am very busy right now and for the foreseeable future. When one is generating revenue, one can afford to buy his way out of a situation.

We be gone - I certainly hope you are correct,but, on rare occasion, on this forum, seems things get out of hand. Guess we just need to live with it, huh?!

Gary,

Are they really thin & flexible? I had some back when we had our 5-r (2004) & haven't been able to find them since. I thought I got them from CW, but they don't have them anymore. I wonder if the flexible chopping mats would do the same thing? Only problem is I can only find them in colors, not white.

Lori-

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Gary --- could they possibly be a chair mat that was cut to size ----- I am talking about the ones that one finds at office depot or other box office supply store.

Hi Lori,

The pads I have are white, about 1/8" thick. They are solid plastic and in color. They can be purchased for a single tire or a wide width is available for dual rear tires. They are not as flexible as what was mentioned in your post. They can be bent about 45 degrees. For the wide dual rear pad a handle is molded into the pad. I'll need to take a closer look at what you suggested. Dishwasher safe, hmmm, I wonder what the wife would say?

Hi David K,
Nope, they were made specifically for coach tires. A better description is in the post to Lori.

Hi Dadeaux,
I looked at several versions of these at the Tampa Super Show. I did not like any of the choices.

I went to the local Farm Fleet store and purchased 4 ea mud flaps for a class 8 truck $6.89 ea. and they fit the dual tires perfectly. An added benefit is that they break the contact for a ground to ground contact under the jacks as wet wood will not in case of lightning.
Juts a thought that works for me and reasonable.
