They have a shorter stroke than the previous jacks, the installer told me, so he dropped them three inches because of that.

Totally happy with the entire Lippert process.

Joe, it's been a year since our new jacks were installed, ZERO problems with the new jacks!!!! The stroke is shorter and it DOES take a little longer for extension or retraction but like you I don't really care! NO more problems.

Joe,
Where did you stay while the Suites was in their shop? Might not be needed, but options always nice.
Thanks,
Joe

You can take comfort in knowing it isn't just the older models with the sleeved jacks.

Our 2019 39DBR has jack, leveling, pump and slide issues.

The pump really makes a racket at times.
The jacks will retract at times when moving the slides out - that's exciting.
The trailer bounces about as much as my previous 5th wheel did before levelup was installed. I think the rear most jacks are too close to the center jacks.

And the jacks leak down.

The pictures are two days after auto leveling. When I applied the tape i left a just visible gap on the ram.

Joe,

We stayed at the Super 8 in Shipshewana. We could have stayed in Goshen or Elkhart, but are more familiar with Shipshi.
