Jack Pads / Leveling blocks

I am looking for Jack Pads for my 2015 DSDP.
Just like everything else on the internet there are so many choices.
Anyone have a recommendation
Thanks

Cut up 2"x12" lumber into squares. Screw 2 together to make them 4" (actually 3") thick and there you go.

I've been using a stall (horse) mat that I've cut up in the exact sizes I need. I have some under each tire, and under each pad. VERY tough and cheap.

Some wood cut up and screwed together is what I use. Wood I had already laying around the shop

I purchased a sheet of 3/4" pressure treated plywood, and had Home Depot cut it into squares (free cuts). Glued and screwed these two high, so each square was 1 1/2 inches high. Additionally I painted a coating of a sealant that the paint guy at Home Depot recommended.

I keep these in a narrow bay so to keep these stackable, the pads are 11 3/4 "" square. I drilled a hole in these to allow an awning rod to assist with placement under and retrieval from under the coach. I carry 8 of these squares.

+ 1 for what jigsup recommends. I have a set. They are lighter than wood but water proof and tough. Check out the RVgeeks video on these.

I use those under the tires when there's too much slope at a site. Unfortunately they are too small for under the HWH levelers as they are not much bigger than the footprint of the HWH.

I also use a horse mat cut up to 14" squares. We stay in FL for the winter on brick pavers and use these rubber mats to help insulate from lighting strikes.

Not sure how horse mat can help spread the load if you are on grass or other soft surfaces.

Use them on a brick paver pad to help insulate from lightning strikes. When on ground use them on top of 2 x 12.
