Leveling pads for Dometic A/C.

What to use for leveling pads? My gasket kit did not come with any. I waited 3 weeks to get this gasket so I could use OEM. The pads that are on there are only a year and a half old, maybe just reuse them.
Thanks,
SR

I don't see any problem reusing them if they are in good shape.

Thanks. That's probably what I will do. I went to the local RV shop to see if they had any and they didn't know what I was talking about. They said all they ever put on is the gasket. I have not seen one video or read one instruction sheet that did not use leveling pads.
Thanks again,
SR

I used a 2x2 square of inch thick dense foam rubber for leveling pads - was more for closing the gap between the AC unit and roof where the mounting screws went as opposed for leveling in my view.
