How to pick the right RV SnapPad package for your rig

How to pick the right RV SnapPad package for your rig


When we designed RV SnapPads, we went to a lot of effort to make them easy to use. In fact, the hardest thing about SnapPads might be figuring out which package goes on which RV!

We promise this isn't entirely our fault. The RV industry is filled with hundreds of different rigs and dozens of different leveling systems, all of which have different jack foot sizes and configurations. As a result, we've been forced to make various types of SnapPads and put them together in wacky combinations.

The problem is, that can make picking the right package pretty confusing. This article will be a quick guide on how to know which SnapPads are right for your rig :)

SnapPad XTRA

Our best selling product! SnapPad XTRA was made for LCI Ground Control and Level up systems, which can be found on over 145 different rigs (that we have discovered so far anyways). Most common on Fifth wheels, you can sometimes find these systems on Class A and Class C Motorhomes too. 

Luckily, XTRA is an easy one. It only comes in only one size (9") and a couple of different configurations.

Here's how to figure out if you need SnapPad XTRA and which package to get:

1.) Check your leveling system to ensure it is a Lippert/LCI Ground control or Level Up.

The control panel will look like this:

And your jacks will look like this: 

If you need extra confirmation, you can measure your jack's diameter to ensure your RV's feet are about 9" across. 

2.) Count the number of 9" jacks your rig has. The most common configurations are 4 or 6**. 

3.) Click on "SnapPad XTRA" under our product menu and select the package that corresponds with the number of feet you have. 

You're done!

**Special Note: Some LCI feet on newer RV models tend to be slightly smaller than 9". If so, regular SnapPad XTRA's may not fit properly on your rig. If this is an issue, please contact us at info@rvsnappad.com and we will provide you with a slightly smaller, better fitting version!

  • Heartland Fifth Wheels (most models)

SnapPad HiWay

Made to fit on HWH levelers, the SnapPad HiWay product line is one of our most varied - and most confusing.  

HWH jacks commonly come in three different sizes - 8", 10", and 11.5" - and the different sized feet are often mixed together in different configurations. That means SnapPad HiWays are available in 6 different packages!

Here's what to do if you are unsure which one to get:

1.) Check your leveling system to ensure it is an HWH.

The control panel will look like this:

And your jacks will look like this (notice the big springs): 

HWH 8"

HWH 10"

HWH 11.5"

If you need extra confirmation, you can measure your jack's diameter to determine what size they are. In general, 8" HWH jack feet are smaller and have large brackets on the side. They are often located on all four jacks, or just on the front of larger rigs.  

2.) Determine what your "mix" of jack foot sizes is. Here are all the possible combinations:

Phew! In the list above, you will find the name of the SnapPad HiWay package that corresponds with the related leveling system configuration. For example, a rig with two 8" jacks in the front and two 10" jacks in the rear would need to get a "HiWay Plus" package.

3.) Click on "SnapPad HiWay" under our product menu and select the package that corresponds with the configuration you found on your rig  (or click the package link in the list above).

Hope that helps!

**Special Note - We have discovered that HiWay 10's (SnapPads for 10" round HWH feet) also work with Atwood levelers that are also 10" and round. Atwood customers will want the "HiWay 10" package

For general guidance, some of the most common rigs that are compatible with SnapPad HiWay include:

  • Tiffin Class A Motorhomes (Phaeton, Allegro, Allegro Bus, Allegro Red, Allegro Open Road)
  • Winnebago Class A Motorhomes (Vectra, Journey, Tour, Grand Tour, Adventurer, Journey, Vista, Aspect, Chieftain, View, Sunova, Cambria)
  • Winnebago Class C Motorhome (Minnie Winnie)
  • Itasca Class A Motorhomes (Meridian, Cambria, Journey, Sunova, Navion)
  • Newmar Class A Motorhomes (Kountry Star, Dutch Star, Ventana, Dutchstar, New Aire, Canyon Star, London Aire, Mountain Aire, Essex)
  • Jayco Fifth Wheel (Eagle)
  • Fleetwood Class A Motorhome (Bounder)
  • Rexall Class A Motorhome (Roseair)
  • Western Class A Motorhome (Alpine)
  • Coach House Class C Motorhome (Platinum)

Please note, however, that the only way to guarantee you get the right SnapPad package is to visually inspect and confirm your leveling system.

SnapPad EQ

Designed to work with Equalizer brand leveling systems, SnapPad EQ comes in a wide variety of packages owing to Equalizers varied size and shape of feet. Our current lineup features SnapPads for 10" round, 10" Octagonal, and 12" round jacks (with the potential for other sizes to come down the road). 

What that means is there's a bunch of different packages available for RVers with Equalizer systems! 

Here's how you can figure out which one works for you:

1.) Check your leveling system to ensure it is an Equalizer.

The control panel will look like this:

And your jacks will look like this: 

10" & 12" Round (they look the same, except the 12" is bigger)

10" Octagon 

If you need extra confirmation, you can measure your jack's diameter to determine what size they are. Of course, the 10" Octagon feet are typically pretty easy to spot ;) That said, be sure you aren't looking at Equalizer's 7" square/Octagon shaped foot!

2.) Determine what your "mix" of jack foot sizes is. Here are all the possible combinations:

Wow, that's a lot! In the list above, you will find the name of the SnapPad EQ package that corresponds with the relevant EQ jack foot combo. For example, a rig with two 10" round jacks in the front and two 12" jacks in the rear would need to get an "EQ Grand Round" package.

3.) Click on "SnapPad EQ" under our product menu and select the package that corresponds with the configuration you found on your rig  (or click the package link in the list above).

Hopefully, that help clears up any confusion!

**Special Note - We have discovered that EQ Round (SnapPads for 10" round Equalizer feet) also work with Atwood levelers that are also 10" and round. Atwood customers will want the "EQ Round" package.

For general guidance, some of the most common rigs that are compatible with SnapPad EQ include:

  • Newmar Class A Motorhomes (Ventana, Baystar)
  • Entegra Class A Motorhomes (Aspire, Anthem, Cornerstone)
  • Forest River Class A Motorhomes (Berkshire, Charleston, Legacy, Seneca)
  • Dynamax Class C Motorhomes (Isata 5, Force, Dynaquest XL, DX3)
  • Nexus Class A Motorhomes, Class C Motorhomes and Diesel Pushers (Wraith, Ghost, Maybach, Bentley)

  • Renegade Class C Motorhomes (Verona)
  • Thor Class C Motorhomes (Hurricane)

Please note, however, that the only way to guarantee you get the right SnapPad package is to visually inspect and confirm your leveling system.

SnapPad Prime

Our thickest, most heavy duty SnapPad, Prime had to be made with a deep lip in order to accommodate the slight "bowl" shape of Power Gear's (and Kwikee Level Best's) 10" jack feet. 

Luckily, Prime is our easiest product to understand. It comes in only two configurations, which are simple to figure out once you confirm you have the right system.

Here's how to do it:

1.) Check your leveling system to ensure it is a Lipper Power Gear or Kwikee Level Best

The control panels will look like this:



And your jacks will look like this: 

If you need extra confirmation, you can measure your jack's diameter to ensure your RV's feet are about 10" across. 

2.) Count the number of 10" jacks your RV has. The most common configuration is four, but some rigs have the rare tri-pod system (three jacks, two in the back, one in the front). 

3.) Click on "SnapPad Prime" under our product menu and select the package that corresponds with the number of feet you have. 

You're done!

For general guidance, some of the most common rigs that are compatible with SnapPad Prime include:

  • Fleetwood Class A Motorhomes (most models)
  • Winnebago Class A Motorhomes (Voyage, Forza, Sunova, Sunstar, Sightseer, Vista)

Please note, however, that the only way to guarantee you get the right SnapPad package is to visually inspect and confirm your leveling system.
