That means it's coming off the assembly line but that doesn't necessarily mean it's completed. When ours came "off the line", it was another week before it was finished because they were waiting on certain parts. Once it's completed, they also have to schedule a driver but Jayco should be able to tell you when that happens.

Congratulations on the new trailer and the wait being over. Ours is supposed to be in first week of July. They have really improved the 16. Thanks for the info on the storm I will be sure to check the roof and outside even closer. Enjoy your new fifth wheel.

MikeNChelle, Congrats! And thank you for posting all the pictures. Our Pinnacle arrived the day we left on vacation, and on our way home yesterday our route took us past the dealer, and we could see our Pinnacle at the back of the lot. We will spend today emptying out the current RV and picking up the Pinnacle tomorrow. We are so excited!

When is your first trip?

First trip will be I 2 weeks. The dealer was having a hard time with the leveling system. Took us 8 hours at the dealer Saturday to pick it up because they couldn't figure this out. DW was NOT happy. I get it home to unhitch and it malfunctions again. This is one of the only reasons I wanted a new camper and it's BROKE....

Oh and another thing... For the PDI they filled the water tank and ran water to the fridge and ice maker. Before we leave they shut it all off. Guess they didn't take the ice out and on the way home it melted all over the floor, carpet, wood for the slide out is mushy............ Calling dealer now

Mike I was about to ask how the 3.0 was.. darn, that's too bad. I hope its just something simple.
What is its malfunction? So I can keep an eye out for trouble with mine, it comes in 4 weeks.

With the 3.0 system you NEED to have 6" x 6" blocks under the rear jacks and only have the front slip pads extended so you split the #5 hole in them with the actual "leg" of the front landing gear. After all of this and a few re-calibrations, I think I have it. I finally got the "Leveling Successful" screen. By the time I'm done I'll have it all down and be a pro at this thing. *** Note to self when operating this system. The new unit has 4 steps and are VERY close to the ground. Make sure they are up or you will probably damage them. Glad I saw it before they hit the ground...


Now to the other stuff. We started packing the camper back up, keep in mind DW is only 5'9" tall and everything in the Pinnacle is higher up than the Eagle. She cannot reach the bathroom fan cover to open it. I will have to get an extension knob for that. The kitchen cabinets are also higher on the wall so she is having a hard time with that as well. Our old coach had storage under the couches as well and we put long items in there. This doesn't have such said storage. Overall it's going to be a perfect fit.

Enjoy. When they are running the system no matter what they are doing watch closely. Also, make sure they show you how to operate in "Manual Mode". It will be your only friend when, not if a malfunction happens.
Enjoy the new rig.
