Yeah I did last year. I want to say it was like 6k$ - 7$kball park. Installation isn't too bad as each leg has its own independent reservoir and pump. So labor isn't as involved as a Level up plumbed central reservoir and pump system. The Lippert is supposed to be even easier to install. It will use jacks that have a total once piece Jack with reservoir and pump assembly. Just add power and control wire. It's on their website now. Bigfoot is an established product made in USA with good customer support.

By the way thanks for that fuse post!! That's good stuff. I need to order a couple. Nice find.

Do you by the way know if the group 34 battery will fit in the box for the group 27s? Jayco ships with 27s. Not sure how much bigger the 34 is.

They fit just fine in the 27 boxes.

My RF jack just broke, when motor on it turns but just clicks, as if not catching. I think internal gear busted.......

Leveling Problems

I had mine go on my 2014 right before I launched for a two week vacation with family.

I was extremely proactive and called Jayco right away. I had insisted on replacement jacks, gear boxes, and motors. Both sides. There is a shear pin buried deep in the Jack. You can't get to it without removing it. Mine did same thing and it was a totally shot gear.

Call your dealer and Jayco first thing. Depending on your relationship with the dealer have them push for new both sides. I have two in my shed as we speak that are evidence of a two year old (not even) rig with completely torn up and sheared gear.

PM me if you need anything to help.

Update

I bought the Bigfoot 6 point leveling system.

Installed it this weekend.

Great system. Unlike Lippert....

If anyone needs help installing just yell.

I've got a 2016 Seismic Wave 310W and have used it once, and ran into this issue. Now the lot I was on was not even remotely close to flat but I was thinking the Out of Stroke had to do with it running out of length to extend, so this thread has helped a ton. I eventually got it to level, after like the 10th try.

Now tonight in my driveway I was trying to autolevel the trailer and ran into this Out of Stroke error. My driveway isn't that unlevel so this was extremely annoying.

I started out leveling it off of the 1 battery that came with the trailer, while it was leveling I plugged the unit into a regular outlet (I'm using 2 dog bones stepping down from 50amp to 30amp to a regular plug) and boy did that speed up the motors. Anyways, it eventually errored out.

With all that said, if I stepped up to 2 or more batteries, would that help this? I've got room to go up to 6 batteries but would rather stay at 2 or 3 (I only have 1 now - interstate marine rv battery srm-27 deep cycle 12v)

You can see how much of a pitch this lot was on, I guess it's the left to right angle that makes a bigger issue?

I would suggest getting 3-4 dual purpose marine batteries.

With the dual purpose you get lots of juice for the electric jacks and marine applications too.

Many of the out of stroke is actually a low amp error.

Is it accurate that I need to get the batteries at the same time to match them up or would I be safe with adding 2-3 new batteries to the one that came with it?

So tonight I tried what you guys have been successful at and that's running jumper cables from the truck battery to the TT battery, I've got a 2011 Ford F250 6.7 Diesel.

Didn't help, still got an error during the leveling process. Sometimes it doesn't say what the error is, other times it'll give the stroke error. Tonight it was just saying error and to hit enter.

If jumping from the truck didn't help, do you think the 3-4 house batteries will help?

If you jumped it and nothing, then no. I had problems from day one with lippert elec jacks.

In the shop multiple times.

I gave up on lippert, took it out and added bigfoot system.

I was thinking about buying 2 more batteries to have 3 but not sure I'd need the juice since I have a generator. 90% of the time I'm plugged in, the other time I can just use the generator. But if 3 batteries helps with the leveling, I'd get them, since it won't help, I'll just stick with 1 battery for now.

We leave for Myrtle Beach for a 10 day vacation, the spot we are on should be level, so I'm hoping I can get it to work correctly.
