You need to know the size of the pads that are on the MH and the exact type, whether they are flat or cupped. They are easy to install and make a difference on rough ground and pavement.

Is it an odd size? I know some coach’s have a combination of 8” and 10”. They have 8, 9, 10, and 12”...

You need to ask Newmar which jacks your coach will have. That will determine the size -- and shape. I don't know about the current coaches, but my 2008 has HWH square pads. The actual HWH jack models were printed on the load-sheet in my rear closet. But if you want to order yours before you actually take delivery, you need to ask Newmar.

They recently added the 11.5 which fits the front of mine. The rear are larger and have a cutout so it doesn't hit something when up. I haven't looked at it yet, this winter I will remove them and make my own.

when parking on a soft surface, like grass, spreading the weight over a larger surface area helps reduce sinking.


My last two DSDP have had active air, with air level, so jack pads are not needed.

Hi - I clicked that link and went to the website. I had never heard of custom pads for the leveling feet. Amazing.

Well, the people on that website really do go out of their way to get you the right pad. For those on this forum asking for the right sizes, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Take a picture of your jack feet and upload it on that website link. I gather they have calibrated eyeballs there and can figure out what you have based on your make, model, year, and that picture. They figured it out for me.

I find the jackpads to be a bit expensive - $50/each. Nonetheless, I do use manually installed pads anytime I'm sitting on something other than concrete or asphalt. I can see where bending over and trying to get my plastic squares in just the right spot can get really old really quick.

Go to the website and see how easy they make it to get the right jackpad before you go to a lot of trouble figuring out everything yourself.

I have them on my current coach, and love them. Pretty easy to install, too. I did 3 out of 4 by myself; needed a spotter, and a small piece of wood on the edge of the last jack pad. I will get them for my 2020 New Aire, too. Already on my list of stuff to buy for the new coach.

I just bought SnapPads on Amazon from VM Express for about $30 each.

Some RV parks require them so you don't break up their pavement. The larger pad spreads out weight so there's less stress in a small area. And a soft pad minimizes point stress -- from a single rock for example.

Pads are also useful when it rains -- again, spreads out the stress.

These heavy coaches can do a lot of damage.

My go to jack pad that I use all the time is 4/ $10.00.
Buy a 2 x 10 x 8’ treated board
from Home Depot. Have them
cut into 4 pc.s. Drill two holes at one end of each board and run a
rope through making a handle.
Cheap, easy, works great!
