Snap on pads

Instructions suggest installing one level pad at a time. How do I control the hydro level system to accomplish this.
Thanks,
Patticake

In manual mode the jacks operate in pairs. Pick a pair, install one snap pad; retract the jacks, install the other snap pad, rinse and repeat for the other pair.

Iíll be interested in your follow up! In another forum I read that the pads weigh about 8lbs each and can make it difficult for the levelers to retract if they do so with springs. I was about ready to order some but this gave me pause.

Pete I'd say mine weight about 2lbs each. No problems with it at all. I'm very happy with them

I did 2 at a time with mine. Did the front 2, left them down, did the rear 2. Took 10 min by myself. Get a helper to position them and you'll be done in 5. Whole pkg shipping weight was about 12 pounds. They are great.

I checked their specs and the ones for my machine are listed at 8.7 lbs per pad. The manufacturer says theyíve never heard this concern before. Guess Iíll put it back on my wish list.

Some parks with asphalt or concrete pads require them. Obviously you can use LEGO blocks or wood but that can be a hassle for some folks.

Right. And I gave away all my "legos" to a friend with a TT. They also give a significantly larger surface area for softer places.
