Cutting boards work. I did it to keep my asphault driveway from being damaged from sticking to feet after long sitting on driveway. Wood blocks also stuck. Also put a whole cutting board under tongue jack. Worked well. No missing chunks this year.

Hi Carl . Yes the cutting boards will work . The difference with the yellow jack pads is the top of them is flat . The bottom of them have grids . Maybe that helps more then being flat , for water not sitting under them . Just my guess . But much better then wood though . Pat

I'm sure that these pads are designed with a grid-like structure just to have enough strength while avoiding excess material and the resulting cost and weight. Open cells facing up will collect water and dirt, so facing down is better... but can be problematic on some surfaces.

Brian now have used them 2+ years . Everything from dirt ,concrete , asphalt and little gravel or rocks . Still look like new and are still yellow . Just installed them to foot pads to save a step putting them down and picking them up . Now if I only had motors to lift jacks up . Pat

That's what the 12v drill/driver is for, with one of these.

I only use the stabilizers while camping and leave them up while storing. I figure if I have a flat tire while in storage it could put torque on the stabilizers. I do put boards under the tires so they don't stick to the pavement. May change them for cutting boards though, as that sounds like a good idea.

Yes, that's what I use with my DeWalt cordless drill but I also have a 10" or so extension to reach the stabilizer.

Tell Linda to do it, don't even have to push a button.
