We are supposed to pick ours up Monday and now I'm really starting to wonder about the choice we made. The auto leveling is one of the features we upgraded for. Thanks for posting some of the issues with it so I will kinda know how to handle it.

Dealer just called and said mine is ready to pick up. They will "Show me" what I was doing wrong. Well lets see this magic you speak of. I don't want to see it work on a perfectly level area. I would like to see it work in the real world, at least a 1% difference. I will post as to what happens when I pick it up. Right now I am in the middle of installing the Firestone Ride-Rite air bag system on my truck. FYI: anyone tackling this job better have many hours and a friend to help because the directions S@#K!! and you will need another set of hands.

MantyGary, My truck is squatting onto the overloads really badly. Truck is dropping over 4" with the camper on it. My neighbor has the same truck so when I get the camper from the shop we're going to see how far his squats. Front tires feel loose as well as it feels like all the weight is on the rear.

So I just got the call from my dealer. Says "most" things are fixed and ready.
Said the 3.0 system is functioning properly and I must be doing something wrong again. Hmmm
TV is bad so they had to order a new one.
Are you ready for this one???? The curbside wall is coming apart in many places and the unit needs to go to Jayco for an entire new wall... OMG!!!!!!!!! I think how about just a new camper???? I'm not so sure I want them ripping the wall off and putting a new one on after it's been finished..... What would you guys do?

I'd be nervous. I'd say "new camper". If it's a construction issue, I'd say they can fix it and resell it.

Still waiting to hear from Jayco what will be done for the repair on the side wall issue.

New problem: The space between the rear bumper of the TV and the front of the Pinnacle are MUCH tighter than my old 351 RLTS. If you're not 100% straight with the truck to trailer and the tailgate is down...... You WILL hit the camper. I have the step in my tailgate which makes it very heavy for my DW to hold partially open as I back up or pull out. Looks like a vented V-notched tailgate will be on order soon.

Probably a good idea anyway.

Adjusted the air pressure in the air bags to have the truck level with the camper attached, Towed like a dream. Not sure what took me so long to add these to my truck with all the towing I do.
