Balou is correct these are awesome. Each of our 18x18x1.5 inch are rated at 40K Lbs.

I also picked up a trucker’s hook at a truck stop to help with positioning and retrieval of the pads. And as a bonus you can use it to drain the water from the air tanks too!

As an alternate to the trucker's hook (which I really like..) I picked up this thing called "Easy Reach" at Walmart. Just push the unlock button and pull the handle toward you and the front telescopes outward. Lightweight aluminum, strong and the end can be fitted with various attachments. On this one, we just put a hook which does the job. Saves the knees! :thumb:

Great product info and DIY ideas!

I use 4, two foot long pieces of 2 x 12 pressure treated lumber with handles screwed on one end of each. They provide 276 square inches of support (compared with 113 for full 12 inch discs), and they easily stack in one of my storage compartments.

Equalizer's Opinion
 
We upgraded to Equalizer Leveling System last year on our KSDP, at that time the salesman told us that Equalizer does Not recommend SnapPads for motor homes. The reason is that they tend to skid during deployment and can bend the legs.

As a result, we bought RoadWarrior Heavy Duty RV Jack Pad - from Amazon 18" diameter. They are pricey but do the job well.

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......

True…the pads are $13 each, but they ship from Canada and the total price with ground shipping is $118

Big Foot
 
I also have an Essex Motorhome, the best pads in my opinion are Big Foot Pads, they are heavy compared to some, but the quality is there, also if you boondock, the weight of the Essex can push the pads into the ground, this has happened on many occasions to us, the Big Foot Pads are as strong as they get.
Good Luck

Jack Pads….

Hey there,
We had Newmar put on Snap Pad Jack Pads when we picked up our 4054 Dutchstar in 2020. we LOVE them….they were in line with the direct from vendor price and then installed them saving us the trouble.

They have made leveling easy without crawling underneath to put down separate ones. Not expensive, worth every penny…safe heading down the road per the earlier comment. They are very tightly affixed.

enjoy your beautiful Essex

re jack pads


I don't see people using them as much as I used to, campgrounds with concrete pads do not seem to be requiring. Primarily need on soft turf, etc but ... I still put them down 90% of the time



I took 2x12, laminated with 1" Plywood to make mine. Easy to do, have worked wonderfully.

We have the 18" Road Warriors. They work great for us. - Paul
