Jayco Pinnacle 36RETS - leaning to the left?


We Have the 18' slide out that houses fridge, dining room, and leather recliners. When we bubble level upon arriving, we are good 'left to right' on the level. However, as soon as we bump out that massive slide out, we are off level and left leaning. We are assuming its from the weight of the slide out.

Anyone else experience this as well? We're <1 year into RV'ing and still learning lots so apologies if this is a common problem.

Thanks, Steve and Vanessa

Our Montana 5er with two slides on the same side did that too. I just learned to set it up just a little off from the center of the bubble.

We have the Pinnacle 35LKTS and our big slide has the refig, stove, microwave and entertainment center. The slide on the other side only has the dining table and sofa in it so the big slide is just much heaver than the entry side slide. Plus the King Bed slide on also on the side with the heavy big slide.
Just have to compensate during setup for the weight difference.

Ditto what other have said. I just set it up with the slide side about 1/2 bubble high. When the slide goes out the bubble is centered.

When I had my Alpenlite 5Ver 32RL it also leaned slightly. No big deal. It was when the wind started blowing it became a big deal. Even with a stabilizing jack under the tongue and 4 other stabilizing jacks the wind blew the 5Ver around so much we had to pull the slide outs in. Then turn the heat off because the heater vents were covered by the slide outs. The last night we slept in that 5Ver it blew off the stabilizing jacks. I can say that was an experience. 70 mph winds in Wyoming in October. That Alenlite 5Ver had a very high profile.
