13 months with my Pinnacle 2015 38FLSA

Hi Everyone:

Just an update on how the unit has been going. After one of my last post I was having problems with the slides being out of alignment. With the suggestions that were given to me could not get it realigned so dealer took care of it and no issues to date.

No issues with the A/C has been working good here in the Florida heat Average Daytime inside temp on hot and muggy days in direct sunlight 74/76 with both units on. (I was at Miami Everglades and Point of View RV Resort in Key Largo from Sept 3 to Oct 2 both spots had No Shade)

Question: On my last trip while in Key Largo had to leave 5'er in a storage yard due to my truck having a bad turbo. I just went back and picked it up this week and spent last 3 days in Miami Everglades RV resort. When I arrived I could not get rear and middle lever's to level up in Auto Mode. I reset and tried a few times with no success. Front would auto level and the others would make short moves but never making it to the ground and the system saying it was leveled. Manual mode could get the rear jacks down but not the middle. I checked all the connections and even reset the system but no luck. Anyone know where the rear sensor is located, to check the connection. I looked at the manual and on Lippert web site but could not find the information. Trying to avoid going back to dealer.

With only a few issues I can say overall I have been very happy with this unit.

Thank You in Advance for any suggestion's on the leveling system.

We put 2-3 of those orange/yellow square plastic blocks under each back leg.
The jacks don't have to travel so far before making contact.

Works for us.

On edit maybe I missed your issue with the middle jacks.

Larry, I have tried that. It seems the sensor is not working correctly. I will call today lippert and see if they can help.

Thanks,

ER

Good Morning:

Just an Update on how my leveling problem is going. LCI was nice enough to send me a new board. (Under Warranty) I installed it and had the same problem so they said to check the rear sensor. Problem now is I have no idea were it is located. (Any Clues?) I have a call into Jayco to see if they can help.

I would take to dealer but they are 2 months backlogged for service and my dealer is small and difficult to get into the service department with a big unit.

Also doing it myself I was able to clean all the crap left behind from the factory. (Wood chunks, wires, metal shavings, etc)

Also anyone know what tool to use for the underbelly. Its an 8 star screw and I can not find a tool anywhere. (Sears, Harbor Freight, Lowe's) Was able to remove the small panel (Sloppy work under there with insulation sheets) with a vice grip and replace with 8m screw.

Regards,

ER

If it's an 8-point screw head it should be a Torx. Easy to find in socket sets or as screwdrivers. if it has a nib in the center of it then it's a security Torx and you can usually find those as bits to fit a driver handle.

LCI can't tell you where the sensor should be located? They might be easier to contact than Jayco???? Good Luck

It is a Robertson bit pretty common in your tool box.

Shop Bosch 2-in Square/Robertson Screwdriver Bit at Lowes.com

Hi:



@ PlayersZ28 & North1 Thanks for info but still cant find it. Even went to Auto Zone and they only had 6 Star.

@ TexasRT. Yes LCI told me about 3 to 4 feet on the bottom of the frame but each manufacture use a different location, it is difficult to see the opening panel I have in the underbelly is small and just to the right of the tires passenger side behind entrance door. I got my head in with a flashlight to look around but sloppy insulation work makes it hard to see. The insulation sheet is all buckled up blocking view. Also to take the full underbelly down is a big project. There is one more larger opening behind the wheels on the driver side will maybe take down if I can find the right tool to remove screws that is hard with the vise grip.

Thanks Again for the help.

A #2 square bit is actually what they use at the factory.

You only need to remove enough to pull it down and look around with a flashlight. A #2 square Robertson bit is what you need. It's in most minidriver kits.
