What To Do If Your SnapPads Are Giving You A Hard Time During Installation  


I bought a set of four SnapPad leveling jack pads for our new motorhome. They appear to be the right size round opening a fraction smaller than the metal foot, which appears to just fit inside the rim. But I cant get them to mount. The jacks land on them dead center, but the jack foot doesnt snap into the rubber pad rim. Ive even tried putting the pad on blocks so that its very close to the retracted jack - to make sure its aligned. Nothing. Is there any other way to mount these things?


Expert Reply:

If you're having trouble installing your SnapPads # SP54FR4 then SnapPad actually recommends lifting the jack foot up 3-4" and using a shim to pry the corner of the pad up and help as the jack foot comes back down, sort of like using a shoe horn to get your foot into a shoe.

You could also try rubbing a bit of dish soap around the rim of the pad and jack foot to help it slide in easier.
