Get RV SnapPads (The Permanent RV Jack Pads) and Save 10%

We’ve liked the idea of RV SnapPads since we first heard about them. We read great reviews and even heard positive comments from friends who use them. But the landing gear on our Mountain Aire’s jacks were an unusual size and shape that wasn’t a fit for any SnapPad model, so we never had the opportunity to use them… until now.

When we recently took delivery of our new Outdoors RV 19 MKS travel trailer, we were really happy to see that it came with more popular-size landing gear on the jacks. This allowed us to make SnapPads one of our very first upgrades, and we already love them as much as we always expected we would.

If you haven’t already installed this great addition to your rig, we think you’ll love them, too. If you’re thinking about SnapPads, your timing couldn’t be better, because we’re including a coupon below for 10% off.

What Are RV SnapPads?

RV SnapPads are permanently installed jack/leveling pads for RVs of all sorts. That means no more carrying or fishing around for plastic or wooden blocks. Best of all, there’s no more getting down under the RV to get jack pads positioned just right. They stay in place on the jack landing gear and are always there ready for use.

That equals faster, easier, more convenient leveling. We previously posted about our favorite RV leveling system. But SnapPads are a real game-changing addition to any leveling system.

Easy to Install

RV SnapPads are easily installed in almost no time at all and then you’re good to go permanently. To install them, simply lower your jacks onto the SnapPad, listen for it to snap into place (hence the name), and you’re all done.

Now, whenever you raise your jacks, your jack pads will stay with them. And when you lower your jacks, your permanent jack pads will be right there. There’s literally nothing to do each time you set up and break camp.

Here we are installing our new SnapPads (shows just one of the four jacks, and sped up a bit since our jacks don’t move all that fast):

Permanent Attachment

These permanent jack pads stay on your landing gear all the time. It’s worth repeating that this means not having to crawl under your rig to set up leveling blocks or pads every time you reach your destination… or collect them when you break camp. You just lower your landing gear with SnapPads already in place and you’re good to go.

We love not having to place or retrieve jack pads each time we set up or break camp. Because they’re permanently installed, you can just forget about them… or not accidentally forget them when you depart a campsite.

Lower your jacks to snap them into place and you’ve got permanently installed RV SnapPads.

Increased Surface Area and Height

Jack pads generally serve one or both of the following purposes — 1) Increasing the surface area of the landing gear to reduce sinking into soft ground, and 2) Adding height to help level on uneven campsites. Like traditional leveling blocks, SnapPads do both, but they do it effortlessly.

The Lippert Ground Control TT leveling system on our 19MKS uses traditional round 9″ diameter landing gear on the jacks. RV SnapPads increase the surface area by 61% over the area of the foot alone. They also add an inch to your rig’s height. That may not seem like much, but every little bit helps in a sloped campsite.

Surface Protection

With SnapPads installed, your landing gear is less likely to damage surfaces on which you park. The larger surface area will reduce sinking into anything soft like dir or grass campsites. Even asphalt can soften during the heat of summer. If you ever moochdock (camp on a friend’s property), they’ll likely appreciate the lack of sinkholes in their driveway when you depart.

RV SnapPads in use on a travel trailer

RV SnapPads are quick and easy to install, simple to use, and offer many benefits. We consider them a no-brainer and a game-changer.

No Slipping or Sliding

With SnapPads installed, your rig is less likely to slip or slide. The rubberized material gets superior traction on just about any surface, especially pavement or grass, both of which can be slippery. Not only is the bottom of the SnapPad more grippy than typical hard plastic or wood levelers, but they’re solidly and permanently installed on the jack foot. That design makes it impossible for the landing gear to slip off the pad.

Rubber Boots Are Electrical Insulators

You may have seen our post asking “How safe is an RV in a lightning storm?” SnapPads are essentially rubber boots that may help insulate your rig in the event of a lightning strike. That means you’re not only safer but it also makes your RV and appliances less vulnerable to storm damage.

SnapPads Are Environmentally Friendly

As an added bonus, SnapPads actually have an environmental benefit. The company has repurposed more than 50,000 tires from landfills, turning them into rugged, durable, desirable RV gear. As RVers, we love the great outdoors, so using a product that helps to preserve the environment is a plus.

While I hate getting on my knees to place our jack pads, I'm not sure the Snap Pads would eliminate that task when camping at some of the older campgrounds we frequent. We've needed 4" or more in pads to get our motorhome level.

As an aside, when are you going to write about your experience of moving from a 43' motorhome to a 24' trailer.

@TheRVgeeks, Looking forward to it. I always enjoy your videos.

Hey Gary! There are definitely campsites that require more lift than the SnapPads alone provide, but we love how often they save us from having to get down underneath the rig, and how grippy they are when placed on additional blocks. Funny you should ask about when we’ll be posting about our change to a new much smaller RV. We shot a video about it yesterday and are currently editing that video and an accompanying blog post planned for next Sunday. Thanks for asking and stay tuned!

Always insure you have ample clearance before installing snap pads. When installed the right front pad contacted the tire when making right turns with my 2004 Travel Supreme 38DS04. I made the decision to manually position another brand of pads each time I set-up and retain full right turn capability.

Absolutely! SnapPads are awesome, but it is important to make sure they’re compatible with your rig. Just like they didn’t fit our Newmar, they won’t work on every rig. We’re very glad they’re compatible with our new one. 👍

I have Snap Pads on a 2022 Tiffin Allegro Bay. Its seems after an inspection that I have a slightly bent front right jack. A Lippert engineer shared with me that on my coach, because it has only air-bags in the back...that when engaging the jacks the coach can move slightly forward during the leveling process as the airbags dump...they posit that this forward push can damage the jacks if equipped with Snap pads especially on hard surfaces due to their gripping action...just a thought to share with folks that have similar coach designs!!!

Thanks for sharing, Chris. Our Mountain Aire rolled noticeably forward when the air bags dumped at the start of the leveling process. But it finished moving before the jacks deployed, so it never tried to move once the landing gear contacted the ground. To have the rig move after the landing gear touch down does seem like a design that would put a fair amount of lateral force on the jacks, even without SnapPads.
