If you bought 2 dual purpose or 3 you would see much better results.

Duracell Ultra 34 AGM Battery Dual Purpose (Starting/Cycling) BCI Group 34M Marine and Boat is what I have.

Battery plus has them.
I just ordered 2 from Batteries Plus to pickup tomorrow. They only had 1 and had to transfer the only other 1 in town so maybe I'll get more down the road.

I didn't think the battery compartment looked that tight, but then I again I haven't tried to put a battery in there yet either. I'm just curious what you should put on top of the first row of batteries for the top 3 since it's just one big open area.

Is there not much difference between the 2.0 you have and the 3.0 I have?

I'm not getting Out of Stroke errors, I'm just getting "Auto Level Fail" error.

I called Jayco today to see which system I had since I was at work and not in front of the TT, she said let me point you in the direction of their documentation since talking to someone there on the phone that can help is about impossible. So she took me to these 2 documents to start with:

http://www.lci1.com/assets/content/s...ice_Manual.pdf

http://www.lci1.com/assets/content/s...ting_Guide.pdf

It looks like the side to side angle of my driveway is right at 1" based on the reading on the control panel. When I put a level in the floor, I have to raise it maybe 1/4" of an inch side to side to be level- maybe I'm crazy but that doesn't seem like my driveway is that far off from being level.

Other than the attention to detail aspect of the trailer and it being a little on the flimsy side in some aspects, I like the trailer - although I've only used it on 1 weekend trip to GA to go riding. Next week is the big 10 day trip to Myrtle Beach, staying at Ocean Lakes Family Campground where the concrete pads seem to be pretty level, so I'll keep my fingers crossed or my kids are going to hear a lot of F bombs when we are setting up.
The slide out issue is raging as we speak, Seisemic has been at Camping World for 3 weeks. We just found out today they even hadn't ordered parts till today!
They are replacing all the motors with 500:1 motors, slide mechanisms and adding 3 more rollers vs only 3 as built. The residential fridge is way to heavy for the OEM slide system.
Auto level fail is a new for 3.0' you have a 2016 model and my Seisimic was the last one off the line 2015 last May.

Is this your first Jayco? The only other toyhauler I looked at was a Grand Design Momentum. I was very particular in what I was looking for... it had to have at least a 12'6 garage for my RZR 900 4, under 40 feet, tandem axle and not more than 16,000lbs since I have a F250 Diesel. I felt any bigger should require a dually. Technically this trailer is more than what my 250 is rated for, even if the 350's really aren't that much different other than a stiffer rear suspension.

My father was always a big fan of Jayco, so that's why I looked at them so hard and ended up buying Jayco. I had a 2003 Georgie Boy Cruise Air diesel pusher and didn't like having to tow the RZR and not have a vehicle on buggy trips. When my wife came along for family vacations I had to tow our Murano. Driving it was a bit annoying cause if you didn't take the mountains just right, it would want to overheat. Once I got the bigger truck and the wife didn't like the RV and wanted a 5th wheel, I found one of the last 310's Jayco had. I was originally going to have a new one built but they changed the production run and I was risking not getting it for this Myrtle Beach trip. So since they had this one still with a little more than I was originally going to order, I jumped on it.

I just hope I don't regret it

So is the bigger problem with the TT being on too much of an angle that the jacks would lift the tires too high off the ground causing issue with flexing of the walls and frame?

I ask because I notice when the jacks are doing its thing, you can hear the slides and windows shifting, making some sounds.

Or is it just a issue with the jacks not having enough strength? This is in regards to the error I've been getting which isn't the jacks running out of length or the amp issue. The error I'm getting, according to their documentation is based on "Unable to auto level due to uneven ground" or "Unable to auto level due to zero point being set incorrectly."

But when I read about calibrating the zero point - you have to actually get it level to before you can set that point. I just don't understand the point of needing to set that zero point because the jacks are always going to be different based on where you are trying to level it. Maybe I'm not understanding what that is.

It's not zeroing the length of the jack. It is zeroing the "brain" of the controller. There is one in the front and one inside the underbelly behind the axels.

Once you tell it what level is, it will remember and create that condition again.

Ok that makes more sense now - so it's about telling the system what "level" is... Tomorrow I'll pull it out into the cul de sac where I know it's damn near level and see if I can get it level to do this calibration.

Thank you for that!

I've read posts in the past for the 3.0 system on other Jayco 5ers and setting zero. It seems users have been walked through doing it with Jayco or brought to dealer and their performance improved. I vaguely remember it. Search the 5th wheel subforum.

Maybe we can all do a group buy for Bigfoot and get discounted price on the kit.

Here's how to do it if you don't know.
There is a phone app for all the LCI systems on your rig, trouble shooting, manuals, etc.

My Georgie Boy had the Bigfoot hydraulic system on it and it was magic. You'd hit auto level and it was spot on, every single time, no matter the situation (within reason). Only advice the dealership gave was don't extend the jacks too far, you risk bending them the further you're extended.
