Dangerously Low Plumbing

Sent this picture to my dealer to send to Jayco with the question: "Is this normal?" At only 6.5" off the ground, I think a disaster is awaiting. Some of the dips I've seen on the interstates while resurfacing could make it a close call. Anyone have their sewer pipe hanging this low?

That is very low. I have that problem on my 355; however, it's the rear two jacks, not the sewer pipe. I didn't want to put my last two snap pads on the back two legs cuz they're so low, about 7" from the ground. I've already heard them scraping near our house heading to the storage area and so afraid they're gonna break off. Your situation could possibly be even worse!

The axles on the Pinnacle are on top of the springs which I think makes the body lower to the ground. I also have a macerator which would also be wiped out with the plumbing. We'll see what Jayco has to say.

Angus, do you have the Sanicon System? I'm thinking that with that system, the plumbing will be slightly lower but not 6.5". I had the Sanicon System on my North Point and the plumbing was much higher.

Yes Jack, I think they need to do some alterations for sure.

No the only accessory we have is the black water flush system but I think they all have that(?).
