Picked up our unit Friday. Went to Wisconsin Saturday and it towed like a dream... as soon as I remembered to air up the airbags in the truck. Oops.
The wall repair looks good. Seems as if everything is taken care of that was on my list, and was it a list.
As soon as I turned on my leveling system I had an error message. I reset by lowering all jacks manually and started over. Successful Level.. Woo hoo.. I'm getting the hang of this.
Looking forward to this season ahead of us. Rick's RV in Joliet is my dealer and has been in contact with us to keep us up to date. Thanks...

That was close to an 8 month fix
I don't know how you did it. I would have flipped out on them after 3

Waiting on parts mostly. Then when you open 1 can of worms you need to order parts to fix the other 2 that were inside hiding..
I'm glad to have it back.

Crap... I forgot to look in my closet up front. It was on my list to fix, but I forgot to check. The entire ceiling had about 100 staples in it, but none of them were hitting their mark so the ceiling was just free floating. Ugh.. Crossing my fingers they did the repair.

Mike, have you ever mention about your weak brake issue to your dealer?
My dealer is starting the process now. Needs to see if the correct axels were installed (has seen this before) and needs to weigh the unit and then get back to Lippert with the results... Then hopefully replace the parts.

Just camped for the first time this year and from having what I thought was everything repaired. The closet roof looks good, but the doorway into the bedroom now has a 1/2" - 3/4" gap along the top of the door and the trim is FUBAR.
Our refrigerator now has a burnt out display light.
On a side note the system said it auto level success. but will need to be calibrated as it is not level. LOL

Had ours down in Phoenix for the winter. Came back with a few items needing repair. Most are cosmetic, except for the awning arm. Wind caught the front awning and bent the rear arm backwards. Waiting on parts to repair. Won't be cheap I'm sure.

If it is just the arm I bet it wont be that bad cost wise for the part. Remember these are built with the cheapest cost in mind.

Mike, I hope there is a light at the end of your tunnel.

MantyGary, I tried to get the struts for my Dometic awning on my SOB. The dealer told me no can do, I could only buy the whole arm assembly for $600 (Canadian) per side. It's their problem now that I traded it into them.
I hope you can just get the parts you need for your fix. Report back on how you make out.

2017 Updated Issues

Took the Pinnacle to the dealer 4 weeks ago because the power awning failed. When I was on the roof looking things over noticed that the back cap where it meet the roof had no caulk in there so the dealer fixed that the second I dropped it off as it was looking like rain. THANK YOU!!!
I noticed half way home to Illinois from Wisconsin the brakes seems very weak. Get out to find grease on the rims on the driver's side wheels. Dealer just called and said the axel seals failed and they are replacing the backing plates as well as the brakes since it's covered under my extended warranty. He said they were packed with grease so no wonder why it seemed like I had no brakes. Shew. I guess I am glad I bought the extended warranty since the awning is junk and the main living room AC took a dump at the end of the season I feel like the extended warranty just paid for itself.
Now I was told I needed to have the roof "Sealed" I thought that the only thing I needed to do was wash it with Dawn a few times a year and check for missing caulk. I was told I was wrong. Any opinions about this?
With my luck it will be ready to take back to Wisconsin during a heavy snow storm...
Thanks for reading.
