I normally slide some 14"x14" pads underneath the jacks. Would it still be wise to continue to do so?
The nice thing about Snap Pads is once you put them on you wonít need anything! The pads are semi permanently installed, add extra area to your jack pads, and require no maintenance or storage. Go to the Snap Pad website and there are videos on installation and use, itíll give you a better idea of how they work.

Just measure the base of your jack pads and order accordingly. They have changed the names of their sizes since I ordered mine. I think they were called the XL.

They are worth not having to get out and get down to put something under the jacks when the weather sucks, or even when it doesn't. I have found them worth it when pulling into a spot after dark - we can just level and put out slides and sleep then get up and hook up in the morning. Or if in transit, we can just take off without having to get all dirty.

They are a bit pricy but free up storage space for those boards that would normally get put down along with the convenience factor.

I'm already at the age where convenience trumps price EVERY time!

I have snap pads installed and love them but I still use my boards when on soft ground. I made my own out of 2x4's sandwiched between 2 sheets of plywood. They are 18" square and I fastened a loop of rope between the 2x4's. The size gives plenty of stability and I don't have to so carefully position them under the jacks. With the loop of rope I can easily retract them without getting onto my knees. Makes life easy!

The pads that I currently use are only 14" square...

But my rig is probably a lot lighter than yours is anyway!
