Super Cheap Tire savers and Landing pads
Since I finally installed my Big Foot Levelers a week or two ago I wanted to either install some rubber feet or have some cheap rubber landing pads to put under them.
Well "Big Foot" is just that - biggest in the market (10 x 10 square). No "snap pads" for this model but I did find one for a 5th wheeler but they were like $79 per a pair. I really wanted rubber for the isolation and anti slip properties. PLUS I dont want to scratch up my driveway or any family/Friends when we go and visit them (I figured I would put them on top of my lego blocks if I need more height when camping).
I went to Atwoods Farm supply 3 miles from my house. They have rubber mats on a roll. 48 inch wide and $7.49 per a foot (so one foot by 4 foot long). 3/8 inch thick.
So I had him cut two feet total off and he cut all the squares up for me (no charge).
Now I have FOUR 12x12 squares for $7.49 (1.88 each!) and TWO 12 x 24 pieces at $7.49 (so $3.75 each). What a bargain. Heck even if they only last a year its worth it. But I think they will last a lot longer.
For the last year I been using the same rubber pads under my tires in my storage building to keep them off the concrete slab. The say concrete is hard on the tires - esp in the winter. The pads still look like new. They dont deform under the weight of the RV. Look like new.
I thought I would share this - I think they are great.
