We have the aftermarket Reico Titan on our 2011 Pinnacle.
The factory installed Atwood system was not available on the 2011 model.
Ours is not a automatic system, it has 4 electric motors on the 4 landing gear legs and a remote to control them.
The are very fast and setup time is usually just a few minutes.
Since we normally move every few weeks they have been used quite a bit they have worked great.
I would consider them one of the better upgrades we did to our Pinnacle.
Sure hope they get the bugs worked out on the Atwood leveling system.

I have the Atwood leveling system and have had nothing but trouble with it. Always get the same response that I must not be following the procedure correctly or it needs to be reprogramed. Trust me I follow the procedure to the letter and it will do things like go into auto level and stop with one leg 2" off the ground or have a fault code that won't clear no matter what I try. Currently it will only work in manual. I'm back to leveling with a hand level for the next 2 months on the road.

good luck

Looks like I must be the lucky one here. I have the Atwood auto leveling system on my jayco 5th wheel that I bought in July 2013. I have used the levers at least 20 times with no problems at all. Love them and so easy to use. Push a button then start hooking up the water and sewer hoses while the levers do their thing!

We have had our Atwood leveling system and camper since September 2012, it works great so far, probably one of the best options we have ever had on a 5th wheel.

Our 2013 Premier came with them and after a nightmare of problems and several trips back to the dealer, I spent a thousand bucks having the system removed and standard electric rear stabilizers installed. They were able to utilize the existing front jacks by adding two rocker switches to control them. Even with the Atwood Levelegs, you must be semi-level from side to side as it will not lift the wheels off the ground. The rep from the factory even admitted that the system could be cantankerous. Good luck if you decide to go with them.

I too have the Atwood "Levelegs with Sensor technology" leveling system in my 2013 Jayco Pinnacle 38FLFS and also have had NOTHING BUT TROUBLE since day one, which was in June 2013. It's been a myriad of problems, all thoroughly documented, including dates, times, who I spoke with etc etc. Sometimes I could not get the fronts to raise. Other times the system would level but the rears would be off the ground. Of course the levelers not working is a "deal breaker" as you are not supposed to extend the slides if the unit is not level. When they fail where we store the trailer, we can't leave. When they fail at the campground, we potentially can't camp, or we may be delayed (hours) before we can pack up and leave. If the levelers are not firmly on the ground the unit moves around when you walk in there, especially in the bedroom (rear). Our dealership admittedly was not totally up to speed on this system so I kept getting referred to Atwood. I've had to call them many times, from various locations and have been on the phone for hours. Reprogramming the system was the standard answer. The dealership finally replaced the main control module (mounted upside down in the "basement") after much complaining from me, but seemingly was not the entire solution. Most recently, I was called by the dealership to come get it, that it was done. When I arrived, we loaded it on my pickup then unloaded and attempted to level it - NOT. The rears would be off the ground when the system finished it's leveling process. I am starting to believe it is a design flaw. The last discussion I had with the dealership was they were going to fly someone in to look at the problem, from Jayco I believe. I suggested they fly someone in from Atwood. I will keep the board here informed on how this progresses. The dealership has had my trailer since mid-November 2013, and OBTW it is the first of February 2014 if anyone is counting.... VERY FRUSTRATING, especially considering how much we pay for these trailers. Disappointed, to say the least.

Wow, sorry for all the problems you are having with the leveling system.
Your Pinnacle being at the dealer since mid November is certainty not acceptable.

When I read posts like this, it makes me scratch my head
Since we fulltime in our Pinnacle, having it at a dealer for 2 or 3 months for repairs is not going to work at all !!!!!

It makes me happy that we have only had some minor issues that either the dealer was able to correct in one day or I was able to correct / resolve without taking it to the dealer.
