What size SnapPads do I need for my 2006 Ventana

Hey everybody.
Does anyone know what size SnapPads I need for my 2006 Ventana? My coach is in storage and I havenít been underneath to measure. Are they worth buying? Hoping to get some advise from experienced SnapPad users and looking forward to the feedback.
Thanks.
Rick

Can't help with which size yours needs.

I like them though. My MH uses SnapPad Primes. They add about 1.5" to the bottom of your levelers, which on my MH were already pretty low. My goal was to increase leveler footprint and reduce metal on ground surface contact. My only complaint is the drain holes are useless if the jacks are down.

Do you have the stock Attwood (electric) Levelegs system, I could measure mine tomorrow. I'm not familiar with the snap pads you are asking about, we've never used them and rarely use the leveleg system since repair parts are hard to find.

I’m sure there are those who will swear by them, but my preference is to not use them.

On my prior coach and the current one, I use horse stall rubber that can be purchased at stores like TSC. They can be cut in any shape to fit your design wanted. They are about 3/4” thick. Under each leg, I also use a 1 1/2” board made from 2 pieces of 3/4” plywood screwed together and painted black.

This gives the same effect as a SnapPad.

I think they're great and put them on both of my Dutch Stars. With that said, you REALLY need to check your coach. On certain models, the pads won't fit the back jacks.

You need to measure the size of the front pads and rear pads, making sure that there is about 3" of clearance around the rear jack pad in the up position so that the pad doesn't hit the frame when it's retracted. I know some of the 43' Dutch Stars the jack pads were too large and SnapPad doesn't have a pad for them.

Here is a link to SnapPad, they have a place where you plug in your rig, and it tells you what pad you need, but I would still measure to be sure. Lastly, once you find the pad size, Amazon sells them. The kit that usually fits is teh Highway Pad kit.
