We took delivery of our new 36FL 3 weeks ago and our service rep at Lazy Days said it was OK to level with the slides out

I spoke with the factory about the popping issue and as I expected they refereed me to to Lippert for this problem they said they had not of this issue untilI mentioned it.

I was rechecking my jacks and found the front two were leaking slightly. I have tightened them both up, so now will see what happens. I will be calling Lippert with the number above. Thanks for the info on how to contact them.

Were the hydraulic lines loose?
I was thinking about checking their mounting bolts to make sure they are tight.

I checked the mounting bolts which were snug - not tight and the lines had one that was finger tight at best.

My biggest concern is how tight to go - I sure would not want to strip a bolt.

They have 6 hash marks on the head so look to be a grade 8, medium carbon alloy bolt. I just have to determine the diameter and thread count to see what the torque can be.
at first glance it looks to be a 1/2" x 20tpi so 120 ft lbs should do it.


There are a lot of torque charts online you can reference such as this one..

Steve is the housing and mounting bracket made of aluminum? If so I wouldcheck with Lippert to make sure you don't over torque the bolts and possibly break a mounting tab.

I was just on the phone with Lippert. They (Jason) told me that new units will most likely need to have their jacks fully extended and retracted several times in order to get any air out of the lines which should stop the popping noises. As for the jacks leaking - they shouldn't have any fluid around them and to call the dealer for servicing.

Received my Lippert PDF from Andy yesterday and was wondering. When you have a flat you are not supposed to use the jacks to pick up your rig. Sooooo you have to call a service or do it yourself. That being said are there desiginated jack points to place a bottle jack? Even the road service must know where these points are located. Thanks for your input.

Place the jack under thespring hold down plate with the U bolts or as close as possible to that point.Do not put the jack toward the middle of the axlebecause you will bend that axle if you do, you do not want to lift your coach tires up off the ground with the jacks because you would be puttingunwanted stress on the jacks and could potentially bend a ram.

Speaking of that, the spare is on a steel wheelmounted under the coach(I suppose that makes sense, since there will be alot of moisture &amp; salt splashing up), but I did not see a jack. Does it come with one somewhere.A lug wrench comes in the basement. Anybody see the jack or use one yet?

I didn't know they gave you lug wrench or a jack , I can't say I have ever seen this done, I have seen a wrench for the slides and manual stabilizer jacks but not for the wheels. If they are doing this its new.

They don't provide a lug wrench so I made that and a torque wrench a part of my basic tool kit. I hope I never need to use either.
I also have road side assistance through Good Sam.
I think our Redwoods come with a year of roadside assistance...but I could be wrong.

I didn't think they gave you that stuff, it would have been a first if they did.

I only glanced at it briefly. I assumed it was a lug wrench. Some type of long swivel handle. Could be a wrench to drop the spare down for use. I'll have to look closer. Maybe the dealer's tech left it in there .

Just so you know, the word from Lippert about using the Leveling jacks for changing a tire is a Cover Their A__. In the early brochures for the system they highlighted the ability to change tires as a feature. They just want you under the unit and someone hit the "Auto Retract" button. I've had all four wheels on the Montana off the ground while doing the annual NYS Inspection to check the brakes. And on numerous times I've had the wheels on one side off the ground to get the rig level. For me, if I need to change a tire, I'm using the leveling jacks. After all the system is designed so as not to twist the frame.
