So if I'm on ground that is 1.0 degree or less off from level and the system won't do anything but error out, how is the dealership going to fix it?

What is Jayco's excuse to get them out of covering that under warranty? I'm trying to put together the different scenarios of what their excuse will be before I call this week.

Keep things documented. If it continues to have the same issue and they keep trying to fix but can't talk to an attorney. Some states like Texas lemon laws cover fifth wheels also.

If your state does not have lemon law for fifth wheels there are legal remedies where you can get compensated. I wish i had known that.

But can Jayco just pass this issue off to the Lippert as their problem to figure out? I only ask because a couple of times I've called about questions or issues, Jayco support has told me to contact the manufacturer. Once was about this issue, the lady I talked to actually said not to call Lippert, it would be a waste of time but showed me where to get their online documentation, then said good luck. The other time was when I had questions about my pilot light for the oven not lighting.

I was always able to talk with Lippert, though the out come was bunk.

My Bigfoot jacks are flawless. Very happy with them.

Spent 2 years of agony with Lippert crap.

Yea I honestly don't see a positive end game in all this. If they could fix my issues, they already would have before putting this system on the 2016 models. I'm a bit confused why Jayco would even continue to use this flawed system.

So I don't really see what the dealership can even do to fix this issue. So it's just going to be a run around game...

How much do I have to drop for the Bigfoot system? I had it on the class A DP I just traded in and NEVER had a single issue with it, so I know it'll work great.

Like you... I absolutely LOVE my Bigfoot system.
Have I had an issue? Yes. Two. Both were after hours and both were immediately solved by techs calling me back within 10 minutes.

You don't measure great companies by whether or not problems occur... you measure great companies by how problems are solved.

Bigfoot has never let me down. They will be on every rig I own... even if that means ripping out the OEM junk.

5th Wheel Six Point Automatic Leveling System $4695

I just noticed the dealer I bought my Jayco from is an authorized dealer. I'm going to call and see what they charge to install this system. I'm assuming another $2,000 at best?

DirtTrail,

You should really read my post linked below. I know you have a six point system, but if your getting the "unable to level" error and it's NOT power related? Then your description sounds suspiciously close to the issue I had. It's frustrating for sure, but if you can fix it, it's a lot less expensive than replacing. By the way, I spoke with two different technicians at LCI and they could not have been more courteous and helpful!

Thank you for passing this information on, I'll read through it to see if it can help fix my problem. I'd rather not drop a bunch of money if the Lippert system will actually work, just seems some people haven't been able to get it to work as it should, which would be a major hassle for me.

Thanks again for the info!

As much as I don't want to have to pull the under belly plastic off, me doing it will be much faster than leaving it at the dealer.

Did you find an easy way to pull down just the side of it to be able to find that sensor or did you drop the entire back half? Any tips on an easy way to access these sensors is greatly appreciated!
