2016 Eagle HT 29.5 BHDS with LCI Auto Level Jacks

Wondering if anyone else has the same problem as me & what's a solution as Jayco or my selling dealer Sicard RV has none.

When my trailer is hooked up to truck, the rear levelling jack pads are only 4" from ground. An accident awaiting to happen as they have dragged on ground several times.

There is no room for adjustment on my trailer to raise them.


Thanks for any suggestions

Can you post some pics?

Did you look at all the possible adjustments, such as the pin box and the rear springs? Sounds to me like you're very nose high, but let's look at other adjustments first. We maxed out all of our adjustment areas and we were still about 8-inches nose high.

Hi: Thanks for reply

I'm travelling back home to Nova Scotia. Will post or send you pictures in a few days. We both have the same truck. Looking at truck/trailer it appears to be nose high but when I put a level on rear jack location it only measures an 1" lower than level. I looked at an Eagle in a campsite in Alberta & our jacks were the same. It looks like Jayco uses the same jack & stroke for all trailer models. I looked on the LCI website and they offer a 12.5" & 10.5" stroke, I have not found the time to contact them yet.

I'm meeting with my selling dealership on Friday to discuss this issue.

Feel free to contact me doug.felker@gmail.com

Hi Wrench, I have no solution (sounds like you're nose high though)
Just wanted to say I live 2 minutes from Sicards.
Have fun on Friday with the boys.

If you have 15 inch tires you could go to 16 inch that would give you some room.

I was concerned with how low the rear jacks sit on mine. But after using it all year, there has only been once where it got close to hitting something and that was backing through a ditch (don't ask). I think they are close enough to the rear wheels that they aren't at too much risk for the average RV'er. I've watched them closely on speed bumps and sharp driveways and they've never been close enough to get out and look.

I would echo what others suggest - move your suspension to the lowest holes in the spring hangers to give you as much clearance as possible.
