Have you seen this?

Last week we stayed at the Grand Canyon Railway RV Resort in Williams, AZ. They require that you place pads under your levelers to keep from damaging the asphalt in the spaces. I carry pads and it was no problem. My sister-in-law and I were discussing that wouldn't it be nice if someone came out with a product that the pads could remain on the leveler discs?
Well, lo-and-behold, I get home and while on FB, an ad for RV products comes up and what do you think I see? Yep, you guessed it. Check out this link. RV SnapPad | Worlds Only Permanent Jack Pads

And, yes. I order 4.

Let us know how they work out. Thinking they aren't much larger than the current footprint and also wonder if they would pop off while on the road. We ordered these, https://www.amazon.com/Camco-44541-L...01J6DMJ1O?th=1, which should make it easier to place and retrieve.

I purchased 6 a while back and really like them. They also increase the pad footprint. The only issue with mine is they were the first model out and now they have the xtra that have slots for the water to drain. I will have to modify mine. You will like em...

What's scary is that I had not done any search for them anywhere. Someone must be listening in on my conversations. They came up on one of the RV pages that I liked. I think it was RV Life, but I'm not sure. LOL

From what I've seen on the www the footprint is a little larger than the leveler pad when in place. The ones you have are very similar to what I have now. I will keep you posted.

I saw the early design on the www. I ordered the xtra. Thanks for the input.

I've had mine for at least 6 months and there is no way they are going to pop off while traveling. They are called "snap pads" because it takes a lot of force to get them to snap in place. Watch their installation video and you will see what I mean. How to Install | RV SnapPad

You can also see from the video how much the increase the footprint...

We stayed at Grand Canyon Railway RV Resort last Xmas and did the whole Polar Express train ride with our 5 year old. Nice clean campground.

Actually, the requirement is for trailer stabilizers and possibly levelers that have very small, or non existent pads (feet). If you are able to install the rubber pads you are talking about your levelling pads (feet) are probably 9 inch and you would not be required to place something under them. The reason a requirement exists at the campground is due to stabilizers gouging out the asphalt. I have stayed there many times in a MH with 9 inch levelling pads (feet) and not have to use anything under them. There is a sign posted for this requirement but an inquire would have clarified it.
