Level up system

Just got a new 3120rl, has anybody had any problem with how low the front landing gear is? Thought about raising mine one hole, about 1 1/2".

What is the issue, are you having trouble getting the trailer high enough to hook up to the hitch?

Have not had any problems with ours with the factory location. Are you having some kind of problem with the factory setting.

No, but I do go off road a little, and looks like it could drag. Have seen a few with grass and dirt on feet

I was about to ask the same thing but about all 6 points. I was backing ours into it's winter covered storage Sunday. When I got out of the truck I found I scooped up rock on the back leg' s. There is a drainage I have to back over but didn't think it was all that steep. Can the levelers be moved up? I may be a little nose high and need to fine tune that before we hit the road come spring.

We've had levelup on two rigs for over 7 years and about 80K so far with no issues. If you don't like the way the rig sits when leveled, adjust the computer. Moving the jacks won't change where the computer thinks it should end up.

We boondock a lot and go sometimes where there are no roads. So far no problem.

We dry camp most of the time and some of the places are a little rough (wouldn't call it off-road). I raised all 6 of my jacks by one hole. I feel a lot better about it. If I ever have an issue with not enough travel on the jacks (have not yet), I'll just put a block under them. My front jacks are now as high as possible, the mid and rear could go up one more hole, but good for now.

I raised the front ones up as far as they would go, which was only two holes. I could nearly drag ours in our driveway, so I raised them and have had no trouble since. I did discover that a friend who raised his rear ones will sometimes run out of stroke when leveling in a couple of the campgrounds here, but that it is easily remedied by placing a 4x6 or something as a pad under it and re-level.

my drive has a slight pitch up, so the back jacks would rub before the tires hit the pitch. I raised them up, and use 6 x 6 blocks, no problems
