2015 Pinnacle FLSA


Just an update on a new issue to keep in mind when dry camping. I arrived back at Florida everglades campground, and after setting up and having dinner my wife went to clean the dishes and I was outside watching tv. I heard a rush of water from under the unit. I came down with all waste tanks empty and 1/4 of fresh water. Last time I dry camped was at the Daytona 500 and left with 3/4 Black and grey Tanks. Drove about 30 miles before dumping.

Following day I took the underbelly down and saw the Kitchen grey tank fell out of the holding brackets, disconnecting the drain line coming down from the kitchen sink. With a Jack and plank of wood and some levelers I had was able to Jack the tank back into place. The corner were the contacts are seems to be deformed from it falling out. The tank itself is fine but seems poorly made and the brackets the tank slides into to me could be stronger that it looks to be bowed out,(Also Plastic tank looks and feels very thin) I took a large screw driver and bent brackets back. They seem to be weak. Now I worry about dry camping in the future, can only imagine of what it would be like if it was the black tank.....

Just want to pass along for anyone traveling with full tanks. Not sure if an isolated issue or Jayco Issue.

Happy Camping.
