I don’t just “live” in my RV, I travel. A LOT!!!
When I arrive at a new place, the first thing I have to do, is get level. I have an easier time than most people, because I have an auto-leveling system. I learned from experience, that you should never just push the button! I replaced quite a few jacks because they either bent or completely broke, before I learned my lesson.
Finally I purchased stabilizer pads to go under my jacks. The first were hard plastic and looked a lot like legos. After a couple of times of leveling in gravel or rocky sites, they broke and I bought new ones. Only to have it happen again.
The next thing I tried was some 2×8 blocks of wood. Other than being heavy, in the beginning they were good solution. But then they started to crack and break. After a trip to the nearby RV supply store, I came home with thick rubber pads. These worked better than anything I had tried so far.
However, no matter what I used, I had to get on the ground to line them up under, where I thought, the jack foot might land. Until another RVer introduced me to SnapPads!
No more sharp rocks jabbing into my knees or ending up a muddy mess! These pads easily attach to the feet of your jacks and you don’t have to take them off when you hit the road. Now, I can safely, just push the auto-level button and turn the a/c on. It’s the simple things in life that make this girl happy!
Besides finding a product that I love, this company has AMAZING customer service. I have only had my snap pads for about 6 weeks, when I arrived at an RV park and realized I was missing one of my pads.
I sent an email to the company explaining my situation, and within 30 minutes I got a response! Barb asked for a copy of my receipt and a picture of the foot without a pad. I sent those and this time, it only took her 20 minutes to respond!
“We do understand accidents can happen so will replace this for you as a courtesy. Please let us know where to ship and I will set that in motion for you. We will need an enter/exit date for your next camp location so we can coordinate it to meet you there.”
This is the kind of company I WANT to do business with!
Here is some information about the pads that I thought might be helpful for you to know:
For your total peace of mind, the pads do not just fall off thankfully, they must be knocked, scraped or dragged. That can happen when your rig experiences pot holes, speed bumps, bumpy uneven roadways/highways. The landing foot and pad come in to contact with the ground surface during motion called “bottoming out,” this can not only damage your pad but drag it off. Service/gas stations can have speed bumps and enter/exits that include an uneven transition from one to the other, this can cause a rear jack foot to bottom out.
Just a head’s up, should you be navigating area’s that have these types of scenarios please exercise caution to protect not only your pads but landing feet also.
