    Landing pad support..

    When setting up. Do you put wood or blocks under your landing pads? I haven't been, seems they already have a good size footprint.
    Yes or no??

    I use 12"x12" x 3/4" HDO Plywood, to increase the footprint. The momentum is pretty heavy.

    I do the same, I glued and screwed 2x8x12s together makes a good solid footing. I also carry additional boards for spots that are not level.

    If I am on a paved or gravel surface I do not use anything. 2X12's if on dirt for insurance.

    I use 2-4x4x10 PT screwed together, sometimes 2 stacks of them. I believe that reducing the jack extension reduces movement in the camper though I have SteadyFast bars installed too.

    I just use the pads unless the ground is really soft from mud or sand. They do have a good footprint and I've found that supplemental pads aren't needed.

    I do, 2x8's as well. Like most said, it gives a bigger footprint, especially if the ground is soft.
