Good news: The Marx bothers assisted by Moe, Larry and Curley have left Jayco.
The bad news: They are now consulting at NASA.

The manufacturer specs were brought to my attention by someone on the forum last year after I could not get my rig into the driveway. My rears were at 6.5".

I went to my dealer with the specs and they raised them up while I had it in for some other warranty work. I can now carefully creep into my driveway without bottoming out.

We purchased our '16 Grey hawk 29MV last week. I found this site and went out and measured my Stabilizer jacks. All four jacks have a ground clearance of only 6.5 inches. Adjusting the rear jacks would be easy with all the adjustment clearance available.

Although the front stabilizer jacks have the needed adjustment holes, there is no clearance at the top edge of the jack frame. Moving the jacks to the next hole will hit some framing up above.

I'm considering having the dealer move the rear jacks for the 7" clearance. I intend to carry some stabilizer blocks. So I know I would need to have two inches more in blocks for the rear as compared to the front.

I raised the rear stabilizer jacks yesterday. Very easy job, took about 30 minutes. Now have about 7 1/2 inch clearance. The jacks leveled the RV the same as they did before moving them. No calibration required.
