Enjoy you new Pinnacle, nice 5th wheel for a first 5er.

I am sure there will be many new things learned on our first trip with your new Pinnacle.

Congrats on your new pinnacle . We purchased one last fall and have put over 5,000 miles on it already . The only issue we had was on the two hanging lights the thumb screw came loose and they swung together and broke . When I replaced them I used locktite I really don't see a purpose for them except looks. Also the ceiling fan globe comes loose . I used green loctite on this so I could still take off and change the bulb . You may not have a problem depending on the miles driven and roads . The hanging lights are about $65 each . Other than that we love the rig pulls great

Congrats on your new Pinnacle....luv ours.

Like Rob said you'll find out more about you're particular rig when you get out and start using all the features availabele. Bring any questions you have back here...if you have any.

Safe travels....

We got our new Pinnacle in April and have been out 3 times. Each time I learn something new.

You will enjoy your new trailer and welcome to the Jayco family.

There is always an answer to any question you might have.

Yes, I noticed that the thumb screw is loose on one of mine. Thanks for the tips.
