After you have a jack stuck in the ground or through asphalt as I have had, you'll understand. I didn't use boards until I had my third incident of having a jack disappear in soft ground or material and failing to retract because it was stuck. Once in soft surface, once in soft hot asphalt, and lastly through a soft rotten railroad tie in a COE park.I now use them where the surface is anything but concrete! I guess I was a slow learner on that subject!

Tarheel covered most of it. One thing I'll do if I start using wood is I'll have a rope attached to a eyering to pull them out, when I've retracked the legs and getting everything picked up. I'm still using plastic pads that probably won't wear out anytime soon. Dave

I use wood, large plastic pads designed for jacks, & thick rubber pads I cut out from a horse stall pad for the same reasons as above. I also need them if I need to drive up on blocks for an un-level camp site because my jacks will fully extend without leveling the coach if my wheels need to be up more than 3" to get to level for my rear jacks.
