You know I'm starting to get P???????????????

Here we sit in AK for the night on our way home from AZ. After blowing 2 China bomb tires in 8 days and doing with damage and spending $1500 for good tires, the Schwinteck slide won't go out, always has been under powered, the Atwood Level Legs never has worked, the Estone sound system remote doesn't work and the TV remote has to be with in 2' of the TV to work and the ceiling above the dinette is dropping down and who knows what will be next.
All these issues have except for tires and ceiling were supposedly addressed by the dealer before we left in Jan .under warranty.
The Pinnacle is suppose to be the pinnacle of the Jayco line isn't it?
This is on a 2013 less than 1 year old!!!
RANT over
take care

WoW, they should either give you a new unit of give you your money back. Time to seek some outside help if you know what I mean. Those were after taxes $$$ that paid for that unit and you put a lot of trust in Jayco.

Hope it all gets resolved when you take it back to the dealer...a safe balance to your trip without any further issues!

I'm hoping you have your needs met with all these issues! Pretty unfortunate and incredibly frustrating!

Sorry to hear this. After 30 years of towing our 4 different TT one thing I learned is that OEM tires are best seen as space savers for actual real tires.

Wow that is crazy. Hope you get everything resolved. I think i would be ranting also, after dropping that much on a pinnacle and having to readdress a problem the dealer was suppose to take care of.

Wow, sorry for all the issues with you Pinnacle.

We have had a few issues in the last 2 1/2 years living in our Pinnacle fulltime but overall it has held up very well to daily use and being moved to a new location about every two weeks.
