Yes. One potential hiccup will be on the passenger side landing gear. The bolt that holds it in was put on before the walls/front cap so you wonít be able to remove it. Youíll have to cut it and replace it. Other than that itís pretty straight forward and pretty easy to replace.

Front landing gear

While unloading ,the right front popped loudly and stopped working it was loose and not holding a load.then I realized the left front was not working and holding all the load.lippert agreed to ďgood willĒ ship two new ones. We installed ourself in the campground. When we get home I will cut them apart and send pix.pinnacle is three years old and now four of six have been replaced

No need to cut yours open.
I’ve already done it and yours will look the same.
Tom cut his too..looked the same.
Here’s the pictures.
