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.

Levelers Drag - Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

My brand new 2017 Greyhawk 29W has had a number of problems one of which was dragging levelers. The jacks would scrape quite a bit, couldn't even go in my driveway without gritting my teeth when the jacks kissed the ground.

Thanks to this forum I found out that the jacks are still being installed too close to the ground. Like others I researched the manufacturer's specs and found the minimum clearance of 7". Mine were only 6" off the ground.

I moved all jacks up one mounting hole and now have a tad over 7" of clearance which stopped the driveway scrapes.

You would think Jayco would have read the specs by now since apparently this has been going on for some time. Never assume something has been installed correctly would be a good T-shirt saying in this instance.

Thank you for solving my problem!

I just brought my 2017 home last week, and was worried about this issue from the get go. I had a slight scrape once but doesn't seem any apparent damage. One thought that went through my mind was perhaps the jacks are closer to spec with an unladen rig. Add all that weight makes then a lot closer. I'm going to adjust mine asap. I was particularly worried about hitting those speed bumps that seem to be everywhere now shopping centers etc. With just a quick look see it appears one of the jacks will hit a fill pipe if I try and move it any further. I'll have to wait and see what happens.

Thanks for the info. I thought mine seemed a bit low and I had visions of bottoming out and the damage it could do. Will be checking mine.
