I like the fact that these are rubber and stay on the pad... one less thing to do as I'm pushing one button to level the rig !

I deploy my wooden blocks all the time. The shorter the stroke on the jacks (especially the front) minimizes the wiggle.

I also was looking at them this morning for my 6-point system. Unsure of what I'm going to do right now. A little more research.

We currently use hosspads under our levelers - they are made of the same type of recycled material (tires) The big issue is you have to get them lined up underneath, and if you have to move or shift it's all over again. Plus, I keep trying to leave them behind at the campground when we are packing up, so it would be nice to have ones built in

I had a nice FB IM conversation with the manufacturer today - my concern is if I had 9" discs on my auto-levelers - got lots of information from them, and I'm going to measure when I'm out at my MH next and send them the photo, they said they'd check to make sure it was the right fit (we're about 90% certain it is, from some pictures I found) but since I won't be using them in the next few days, it can wait.
They ship from Indiana, and said they would give me a 10% off coupon they are going to have for the holidays.

Yes I emailed the manufacturer through their website this morning and asked about fitment for my 6 point level up and how to clean them and if they would fade to color gray and they said you would clean them up just like a regular tire and they don't think they fade... hmmm 10% ......

Don't know why it helps, but it does. It does not eliminate it all, but it helps. Better than with no pads.

Seems to work better on soft sites, ie. gravel, grass, dirt.

I just have been e-mailing with Devon Wilson V.P. of operations at rvsnappad.com who told me they have a deal with Hartland owners and said I can advise the webmaster here. Just don't know how to. He said they will discount FROG members.
