Leveler jacks

On our 2017 Thor Quantum the back leveler jacks drag when we pull out of the driveway. Is there away to raise them up?

The jacks have holes every one or two inches. You'll have to climb under your rig and see if you can use the next set of holes without the top hitting the floor. Just remember that every inch you raise them is an inch shorter when extended.

We have had a lot of little stuffy that needed fixing ever since we bought it new in June. Nothing to stop us from using it but after our first trip had to take it back to dealer (Camping World) they keep it for 14days didn't get all of it done. Took another trip and then dropped it off once again. When we asked about them adjusting the jacks they told us they could not adjust them but I thought I read something about them being adjustable. So thank you for answering my question. Now I can go back to dealership and address the problem with new knowledge.

I know on our camper, while there are a lot of adjustment holes in the jacks, there is not enough clearance above the current top of the jacks to move it up to the next hole. That is where you have to get under there and take a close look to see if there is room or not.

Hopefully you will have the extra room to move them up. We do not, but we only have issues a few times where it scraped.

Thanks for the input, and as you said there is not enough room at top to move them up. Guess I'll just have to be very careful pulling out driveway or low driveway.

Do you think that some SumoSprings might help?

Was not aware of SumoSprings but sure will do some investigating on them. My son drives a truck for a living I'll ask him about them. Thanks for the info. I'm ready to try anything don't like hearing that scrapping sound when leaving driveway.
