It's official, RV SnapPads are amazing! If you're wondering what they are, they are permanent jack pads for your RV. Or as Jason likes to say, shoes for your jacks. We were lucky enough to receive a set of SnapPad Xtra from Origen RV Accessories LTD to try them out and write a review. We say lucky because we've had our eye on this product for awhile and are so pleased to finally add them to our arsenal of RV accessories. Running around the RV to align jack pads while setting up is something we've always hated doing, and SnapPads removes that dreaded task! In addition, they are designed to stabilize your RV on any terrain. That's right, they work on grass, dirt, sand, ice, snow, and even uneven gravel or asphalt. Put these bad boys on one time and you're good to go.
Not to mention, they are extremely easy to put on… you might even say it's a “snap” (sorry, couldn't help myself). It's recommended to put them on while on a level and paved ground, so we stopped at a rest stop during a travel day to pop them on. Any RVer will know that added stops or delays on moving day is extremely unwanted, so being able to stop and put the SnapPads on without any additional headache is a miracle! It saved us so much time once we arrived at our new campsite because we were able to simply unhitch and hit auto level on our LCI leveling system. The whole process of unhitching and getting the rig level took about 3 minutes instead of our typical 10-15 minutes of setting up levelers and running around to align jack pads (all while yelling at each other “ready?!” or “not yet!” or “okay, GO!”).
