Snap Pads on my Seneca

Greetings from my temporary beautiful, cool home in Breckenridge Colorado where we have about a week before heading back to sunny, hot and humid, Florida. Yea 😓.

After reading about and then seeing Snap Pads on a neighbor’s RV, I purchased a set for my Seneca. I installed them this morning, all of which took about 15 minutes. I had DW sitting at the Equalizer power panel and using walkie talkies had her lower the legs as I positioned them. Could not have been easier.

They permanently snap on to the landing foot and add just over an inch in height and increase the ground contact. They are made from recycled auto tires and feel very robust.

The first benefit I see is the RV feels more stable. If I walk heavy footed I can hear my glass shower doors ratttle if not latched. After the install they no longer rattle. They seem like they will stay on and will eliminate the need for the first layer of 2xs. Time will tell and I will update as we travel.

Very nice Mark! I have my Bigfoot pads but sometimes wish for something more. And something I wouldn't have deploy if I'm just overnighting in a fairly level spot.

You wouldn't happen to be at Tiger Run Resort would you? Stayed there in 2016 and loved it!

Horse Stable Mats

At the time I checked, they did not have those for the Seneca. I cut squares of horse stall matts and used bolts to hold them to the feet in pre-existing holes. Similar observations...a much more stable feel. (No pun intended.)

I submitted my rig's info online and they responded that they do not have a Snap Pad for the Bigfoot levelers. I will just have to keep using my Bigfoot (not the same companies) poly pads under my levelers. Oh well!

Mark S - do you remember which ones you ordered ?
My landing gear appears to be the same as yours.

Do they feel pretty solidly locked into place ?
They are price enough I wonder what the concern is with them falling off going offroad or very rough roads.

Yes Rob, at Tiger Run. Right across from the clubhouse. I believe you and I might have been here at the same time in 2016. We spent the month of August here then. But you would not have recognized me then as I was in my toy hauler, not my Seneca.

I ordered the 10” octagon/Premier. When you order they have you input the RV and system info to make sure you are ordering correctly. And if you call you can speak to the owner, Gordon, who was very helpful.

When installing it seems to take a lot of pressure to snap them in, leading me to believe they will stay put. I read all the reviews and I don’t recall anyone complaining of them falling off. Trust me, if they fall off you all will know it it. Lol.

Thank you for the info !
I'm really interested in these. I don't see the 10 "Octagon/premier listed for Equalizer so I will have to call them.
Online under SnapPad EQ (for Equalizer) they have 10" round and the octagon but not a 10" octagon.... also no premier listed.
