Rear leveling jacks too low

The rear jacks on my 29h Outlaw are only about MAYBE 4" from the ground. One RV technician says they can be raised one hole. Another RV technician says "no way". I can do this myself but now I'm uncertain. Anyone have any experience with raising the jacks?

We're in the middle of buying a 29H right now...
Does anyone know exactly what the specs are for those jacks?
(Specifically: how far they can be extended)

Bob: you can find the Lippert OEM Installation manual on-line with some google searching and maybe that will help you out. I'm a newbie so I'm reluctant to offer any input.

If you have auto leveling it may become an issue if you move them up (unless you know to correctly preposition a block to make up the difference). If you are manual leveling and using blocks it is likely not an issue.

After taking a quick crawl underneath my rig: it shouldn't be an issue. The rear tires will pick you up and over anything that you might catch on them...

Raise them 1 hole, worst case is it doesn't work & lower it back. Personally I can't see that it would hurt a thing to raise 1 maybe 2. holes, the monitor will tell if it runs out of stroke, then add blocks to shorten the stroke.

Thank you for your replies. This forum was recommended to me by a friend - not a Thor owner- who found his forum major helpful. I'm handy but I never knew what all an RV owner was in for.
