Permanent Jackpad In Development for HWH Leveling Systems

Fri Jan 12, 2018

151579786489928.jpgRV SnapPad is developing one of the first ever permanent jackpads for HWH leveling systems, according to a company press release, marking their third addition to a product lineup of permanent jack pads for luxury fifth wheels and Class A motorhomes.

“The HWH version posed a number of unique considerations, however after great feedback from our beta testers we’re confident SnapPad HiWay offers the same value-add benefits as the rest of our line up,” says Devon Wilson, vice president of Operations at Origen, the parent company of RV SnapPad.

The company expects to launch the HWH jackpod in the first quarter of this year.

HWH leveling systems are most typically found on Tiffin brand RVs. However depending on the year and model, HWH can also be found on Winnebagos and Newmar rigs. Origen’s new HiWay 10 SnapPad is compatible with 10-inch Atwood landing feet as well.

SnapPad’s for HWH come in two different sizes to fit 8-inch and 10-inch landing feet and three different configurations. Prices range from $99.95 to $165.95. Origen also offers a number of discounts for first responders and veterans as well.
