Our Pinnacle came generator preped from the factory.

It has the automatic transfer switch, remote start with hour meter inside and a Unleaded Gasoline Fuel Tank mounted beside the Generator box up front.

Obviously I'm wrong then.

I have been pleased with the slide out bike rack in 6 months of use.

Could you send me a picture or model# of the bike rack as where to get one.
thanks

The one I have is the stock option that Jayco offers. I think it was $421. It slides under the frame when not used and is secured with 2 latch pins. It can be used for other things besides bikes. I do not know if it can be purchased separately but it is a bolt on to the frame in 4 locations.

Here a couple of shots of mine. First one in the stowed position ( the support bar goes down and the whole unit latches in place a few more inches in) and another in the out position.

Thanks, thats the same carrier I got on mine, I was thinking you had something different. Thanks for the response. I put 2 2x4 in the bracket and tied them together with some 1 bys, so i can have more places to tie the bike together,

Sounds like a good idea. I have been using a combination of ratchet straps over the wheels left and right to secure the bikes . I only carry two, and they have stayed in place over many of road miles.

Russ,

Our 36REQS just came out of the factory and should be delivered to the west coast sometime next week. We opted to not order the fireplace. Seems expensive for what it is and we could use the extra storage space for my kids stuff (they'll be sleeping there). Went for the thermopane windows, pin box and bike rack as well. Also decided to not order the bedroom tv. My plan is to upgrade the 22" tv we have on our kitchen wall (in the house) to a 26" tv....and then use the older one in the camper. Hopefully I won't hack up the trailer walls too badly trying to mount the bracket. I'll try to post a pic of the fireplace-less living room in a few weeks. During all my web research/shopping, I have never seen any Pinnacles without the fireplace.

Cheers,
Rich

Rich,

We bought out Pinnacle "off the lot", it is well equiped with the Mor Ryde Pin Box, Thermopane Windows, Central Vac, Convection Micro, 12 CF Refig, Bedroom TV, 2nd A/C, Slide Out Awnings, Key Fob Remote, Generator Prep but it does not have a Fireplace.

I agree, the first Pinnacle I had seen without a Fireplace.

We have plenty of storage space and DW wants a Fireplace so we just bought a Dimplex Fireplace and will install it in a few weeks.

My theory is "If Mama is Happy, Everybody is Happy" !!!!! :mickey:

get the generator regardless of fuel type ;when I bought gas was all that they offered in 2010 . It will never be cheaper than when included in the entire deal .Why get prep unless getting generator which onan after market is 5,ooo.oo + and install labor. When factory installed everything works and 2 year warranty applies.
