Jack Pads?

We recently purchased a 2021 Essex. I am considering Jack Pads. However, I cannot seem to find pads that fit (HWH, 11.5" front and 12.5" rear). I am looking for feedback about the value of Jack Pads and a recommended place to buy them. Thanks

You might want to check on the SnapPad website or give them a call at 866-923-9538.

I use the SnapPads on my my coach and like them. However, I don't think they offer one large enough for the rear of your coach.

Last time people were looking for different pads to use, it dawned on me that the roadside traffic cone rubber pads would be perfect. They're 20" in size and only $13.00 each. Here's a link......

I recently called snappads they don't make them as of yet. I was told to try back around christmas time. The rear jacks are the problem.

The rear jacks are the problem because the rear feet are not a complete 360 deg circle. A section of the rear feet need clearance when they are retracted. Interesting to see if the snap pad folks can solve that problem.

I have a set on my 2020 DS 4081. The rear just barely clears the frame in the retracted position. I do have to say that at close to 55,000 pounds the pads help but do not completely prevent the coach from sinking in dirt or asphalt. I am getting ready to cut some lumber or ? to help when my coach is in her hanger.

Howdy Don, I just looked at these. With the middle hole you are losing a lot of support to help distribute the weight. How affective are these in real life?

Am not sure I would be very comfortable adding something that is outside my coach that is not explicitly designed for my coach. God forbid it comes off damaging my truck, someone else vehicle or hitting someone. Am hoping snap pads will have something that fits my coach.

I have the BIGFOOT pads which can be purchased from their site bigfoot.com. You can pick the size you need.

Thanks! That's what I've found but wasn't sure.

I wasn't implying that you attach the traffic cone pads to the jacks. If you look for rubber pads that are RV specific, they cost a fortune. As to the hole in the center, I don't think that would be of any impact to the usefulness of the pad.

Hmmmm, I don’t know Don. I think that with a 7.5 inch diameter hole it may offer very little actual pad left for the jack foot to displace it’s weight on thus causing the pad to possibly warp when using on softer ground… but I am not an engineer sooooo…
