When semis leave their trailers on pavement they use a plastic jack pad that is flat on one side with webbing on the other side.
They are at least 12 inches on a side. A friend gave me 4 of them. I have been using them for five years and they are still in great shape.
You might check with any truck drivers you know and see if they know where you could get some.
I use them anytime the ground is soft or when I am on asphalt.

I use untreated 2x12 cut at 16". I attach the heavy duty black bungie straps with washers and screws on the ends so they can be easily hooked with the awning hook. They give a big footprint for sandy or soft soil. If necessary, drive up on couple and put a couple under the jacks. They're cheap - bust, break or rot, just make some more.

I use cutting poly cutting boards with a hanhold in them. Loop a cord through it for easy retrieval. Not always needed but I use them all the time anyway. Makes me get out and double check the levelers are up. Keep 2 x 10 blocks for when needed too.

Hi Clay,

I think I use what you are talking about. I got mine at Camping World. The link to the page is: https://www.campingworld.com/browse/...m?skuNum=29419

A reviewer says he thinks they aren't for heavy class A's. Mine is 21, 000 to 22,000 lbs., full of fuel, water, gear, and us. These orange pads have an X pattern on one side and are smooth on another. Depending on the ground, you use one side or the other (instructions are printed on the pads). They are very light and easy to clean and don't get water-logged, crack, splinter, or rot. I think they are great! They are $13.49 for 2, I paid $12.00 over a year ago. They are still a bargain to me.

Happy travels,
