Atwood Leveling System for Pinnacle

We hope to be ordering the 31 Rlts Pinnacle in the next few weeks. One of the options is the four point leveling system made by Atwood. Has anybody had any experience with this system? Familiar with the Big Foot system but not the Atwood system.

Is the Atwood the one that Jayco uses?

Just starting to get familiar with some options.

Yes, according to the factory and our dealer.

I guess the Atwood leveling system is new option for 2012 Jayco fifth wheels.

Let me bring this topic back to life.

Is an auto-leveling system something new for Jayco or just the Pinnacle? Has anyone put after market systems on their units?

How does the Atwood compare to say the Lippert or Big Foot systems ?

We are close to finish selecting options and can see pros/cons for the auto-levelers.

Larry, I have not been able to find someone who has it installed on a Pinnacle. I have down loaded and printed all the installation and user manuals from their web site. If it works and there are no problems I would order it if and when I order the 31RLTS. I believe that it is a new option.

Thanks Don.

Looks like not much experience with Atwood on Jayco.

Did a little looking around today and found that some Class A motor homes are using the system. The brochure that I found shows both a fifth wheel and a motor home on the front cover. The system is all electric which makes since. Jayco uses electric slide outs.

Not getting that warm cozy feeling about the Atwood.

I have the Atwood self leverers on my new Pinnacle and have nothing but problems so far. No way in the world would I recommend it from my experience so far. If they EVER get it working right I might change my mind. Right now very frustrating. Follow printed instructions EXACTLY to the letter and it still doesn't work correctly. Atwood keeps saying that it needs to be re-programmed, but they're the one doing it and it still fails.
