40IP Positioning Snap Pads and Jack pads (14"x14")

We finally are taking delivery of a new 40IP after ordering it on Oct 3... It was worth the wait... what an incredible machine! I hear great things about SNAP PADS, and plain old 14"x14" "jack pads"... The SNAP PAD "snap on" versus "manually" positioning Jack Pads under the "jack foot". I was wondering if anyone can help me understand the trade-offs?

You put the snap pads one just once and forget about em. Follow the installation instructions and in 10 minutes you’re done.
I’ve got a set and they work great.

Agree. Have them on my RED, took about 15 minutes to install and I never think about them, they are just there doing its job.

I put them on my last coach, and just added them to the new coach. One and done, no climbing under coach to set wood/ pads/ plastic/ whatever. Trade offs I guess are price/ storage/ and installation time on site. you can home make protective ground cover from a myriad of materials you likely have in your garage.

Snap pads have worked well for me.

I have had snap pads on two of my latest motorhomes and I like them. Installation is easy and they are always there. On this motorhome the snap pad does touch the mud flap on one side, but, doesnt cause any problem.

Thanks everyone... I have a set ready to install and will likely do so as soon as the ground dries out or I'm on a cement pad...

I wanted to put them on my 2020 AB 40IP but they would hit the metal crossbars both front and back. I had them on my 2017 Phaeton AH with no clearance issues. Will look forward to hearing about your install.

We ordered snap pads for our 2019 Bus. There are cut outs for the cross bar and the front set went on perfectly.

The read pads were close to the inside dual on travel ride height. If I went on “high ride” to get the coach in our parking area the pads were rubbing the rear inside dual! I didn’t want to saw a “notch” or cut
Off the corner of the new lads so I sent them back.

I use the high ride mode whenever we park the coach at home so the rear flap don’t drag going up the driveway.

I sent a note a d photo to Snap Pads. Hopefully they can figure something out.
