That's a great idea. Mind if I ask where you mounted the compressor?

Mounted the compressor on the driver side frame . Middle of truck closer to the wireless control. Think it was 10-24 screws and close to it was the manifold

Air bags with the on board compressor and gauge is definitely the way to go. Have that in my 250 and handles my pinnacle very well, have no intentions on getting into a 350 next time around. Truck does not sway in the high winds, have any problems in emergency stopping situations, or feel like it is being exhausted while towing; very impressed for having 14,500+ lbs on the back. I actually prefer towing my 40' pinnacle over my old 35' trailer no matter the conditions

I purchased a 2015 36KTPS pinnacle at the October 2013 Pamona RV show and have been very pleased with the rig. They upgraded the pantry and swapped the location of the pantry with the refrigerator so you can access the fridge with the slides in. You will need to replace the matress, the original is very firm! Very happy with the materials and construction. I would purchase a Pinnacle again. Since I had to wait until February 2014 to get the fifth wheel they let me have the first 2015 model.

We just ordered a Pinnacle 26REQS and will be picking up in Jan-Feb, we opted for the Queen bed for more room in bedroom with end table at each side. I hoping my 2010 F-350 short box wont have too much sag with a 2400 lb pin weight.

I was surprised to hear from Jayco that they don't install a combo washer/dryer in the units, my dealer said no last week and I called direct today....I will do it myself and apply my own warranty I guess.

We are pretty excited about our decision with floorplan and unit, our last new one was a 2005 30" Open Road 5'r, the unit was very nice, but this Pinnacle is defiantly a step up for us.

Hey Murray,

I bought a Pinnacle 38FLSA and I love it. I haven't had any problems whatsoever with it except for the ice maker not working. I'm sure the techs. at the dealership forgot to hook up the water line for it. Im 30yrs old and my coworkers envy it. The recliners and sofas are comfortable in my opinion. I don't think you can go wrong with the Pinnacle. Good Luck. Check out my photos on my profile.

Love ours as well.

There are two valves for the ice-maker, one is under the trash can and the other one is on the back wall of the slideout under the stove. I'll bet one of them is closed.The water lines are all connected at the factory. If that doesn't work try unplugging the fridge and plugging it back in (plug is also under the stove). You will need to remove the drawer to get to the valve under the stove.

Grumpy,

Thanks for the tip. I would have never though to look under the trash for the ice maker valve. I have ice now after 2 1/2 months of camper living. What a luxury it is. Thanks again.

The one is under the trash can is so you can turn off the supply in cold weather and open that low point drain. The waterline in the slide is NOT insulated.

I bought a F-350 DRW Crew Cab LB 4WD and really don't like the way it towed my 5er compared to my F-350 SRW. I am 98% I will be getting a 2015 SRW F-350 this Spring. I thought the duals were supposed to help with stability not make it crazy to control. This is my first Dually, but I've had a few SRW with the 6.7 Ford and never issues like I am having now.
