Does anyone know if the 2014 level pin box measurement is the same as this? We pick ours up next week and im trying to determine if it is going to ride level or not. I measured my fifth wheel hitch today and it is at 48" from the ground on the lowest setting.

Diesel Mike, I recently replaced our stock pin box with a Sidewinder. The sidewinder when installed was 2" lower than the stock pin box. I just measured the Sidewinder, and it is 48 1/2" from the bottom of the plate that rests on the 5th wheel to the ground. So, if you add two inches to that, it should be about 50 to 50 1/2" for your stock pin box.

Thanks, if I raise it up to the next setting, it should be about right then.

I have a question concerning those of you who have moved your leaf springs to the lower holes. Did you do it yourself or did you have the service people at the dealership do it for you. If you did it yourself how did you get the unit up off the ground to move the leaf springs. I have a 2012 31. 5 RLTS. I am pulling it with a 2004 Ford F 350 with a 6 inch lift kit installed. The unit is riding knows high and I would like to level it out.

I'm considering it too and would like to know hard this is to do with a floor jack, jack stands and a impact wrench

I had a local Jayco dealer recommended a trailer dealer (St Augustine, FL)to me because they didn't have time to it. I called them and they did it $350 installing new wet shackle bolts. I figured for that price it was worth it. Otherwise I would have been buying new tools, etc.

Did mine myself. Bought a wet bolt kiT from Amazon just under 100.00. Bottle jack to lift by the frame. Jack stands under frame for safety. Floor jack to support axel and move it around (can be a wrestling match) . I do have air tools makes it a bit faster. Removed bolts lowered down pushed out plastic bushings installed brass ones with c clamp. Reinstall in lower holes. About 4 hours total. Way less if your not doing wet bolt kit. Easy just nuts and bolts.

I also did it myself exactly like PETERS aboved with the help of a son in law. Left trailer attached to the truck. Used a battery impact driver, Mor/ryde wet bolt kit, took 2-3 hrs. Make sure to take tires off for weight reduction and room to work. We did one tire/axle at a time. Not bad
