Ground clearance issue

Just purchased a 2017 38FLSA Pinnacle and find ground clearance is very poor has anyone had the same issue and if so what did u do to correct? Axel flip would gain 5.5" clearance but trailer is already at maximum legal load height for my jurisdiction!

I don't see a simple solution to your problem given your constraints on max height.

Do you mean leveling jacks or overall? We had no problem with our 2015. Some had concerns with the rear jacks on 2016/17 and just raised them up a bolt hole or 2.

Jacks were part of the problem but I already raised them and much as I could. It is the back hitch and tire now. Also emasserator.

I have a 2016 Pinnacle 38FLSA and although I have not had any issues with clearance so far (knock on wood), I have been concerned with how low the levelers and stabilizers are to the ground. I didn't realize they could be adjusted. Is it difficult with the enclosed underbelly of the unit?

We mostly dry camp 16 Eagle 321 RSTS, we just go real slow once off the paved roads. So far so good!

Not sure what level system the 2016 used on the 2017 it is lippert generation 3. The motor is on the top of the levelling legs. If the motor has room between the enclosure then it can be moved up by unbolting the 6 plate bolts and moving to the next available hole or more. I moved my left rear up one hole as that was all the room I had, on the right I had 3 holes at about 1" change per hole. It is a tight area to work in and the bolts are tight.

We too have a 2017 38FLSA, here is what we do, removing the feet on rear and middle legs will give you more clearance. But I've scraped doing that also. What I do if going into events where ground is very un level. Remove all six bolts on leveling legs, turn them sideways and put in two bolts, takes about an hour each way
