snap pad size

I have a 2022 Rockwood Ultra lite fifth wheel model 2883ws on the way but want to add snap pads to the landing gear when I pick it up. Anyone know what size I would need to purchase? My best guess is 9" round. Thanks

I just picked up my new camper yesterday from the dealer. After the closing the next stop was parts where they were prepared with a list of recommended items. One that we got were the snap pads with our 20% off day of sale discount.

Hopefully your dealer already knows what size youíll need.

I have the exact same unit, 2022 2883ws. I got 9 inch SnapPads. It’s really important when installing them that you follow some key steps that they (SnapPad) doesn’t mention in the instructions. Flat and level ground, completely and totally. Preferably on gravel, but your unit needs to be on flat and level ground - no exceptions. Next, use lots of dish soap (a lot!) but in addition also very liberally apply a spray quick detailer like mothers or mequiars…apply it until it’s soaked and dripping wet. The front jacks will install easy…the back jacks are more tricky and conditions of installation need to be perfect. My first attempt (on the rears) failed completely and the lip of the SnapPad crumbled. The problem was related to several things: coarse crumb on the SnapPad (which they admitted to having some bad batches), not using the quick detailer spray, and the slightly raised outer lip of the Jack pad. SnapPad was great to work with and did send me 2 new pads at no cost. I have yet to install them because my unit is stored for the winter…but make no mistake I’ll be going all out on the lubricating step (jack and rubber pad) to make sure installation goes right. So learn from my experience here and all should go well. These things aren’t cheap!
