The first calcs were using diameter instead of radius. Had me confused for a bit

No, it was just an honest mistake using diameter for radius...

Just a bit of humor. I actually meant my question for the first post that made the miscalculation. I figured that you had just quoted from that. It's all good.

LOL, no actually I responded and then deleted a post where I had used the diameter instead of the radius... I was not offended at all and I know what you mean about common core math...

I am guessing the 452 number for a 12" diameter pad came from the pi r^2 or 113 sq inches foe a single pad and 452 for all 4 levelers (4 X113). The snap pads are 11" wide in an octagon not quite a circle, but I don't have the measurement of one side. So the approximate area of the snap pad is 95 sq inches or 380 sq inches for all 4 levelers.

An addendum (I love math). The length of the side of the snap pad is 4.56". The area will be 100.5 sq inches. Or 402 sq inches for 4 levelers. That is much more than the approximately 63.5 sq inches for a 9" pad or 254 sq inches for all 4 levelers. That aside I would look to adding these to avoid the bending and stooping to put wood or some additional pad under the levels pads.

Seems about right on! Snappad says their foot increases the area by 65% which is 103 sq-in. Gonna start calling you Mr Math

Since you enjoy math please look at my post about a Sidewinder 5th wheel hitch and help me understand why the center of gravity is moved some off the rear axle. So as not to hijack this post maybe you could respond in that thread. Here is the thread... Sidewinder Dynamic Forces
