Let me guess--you did not get the front jack option when you bought?

I'm curious Ryan, how tough was it removing the off door side jack? I know on our 38 RSSA removing that jack would be "hard". It appeared Lippert removed our LP tanks and compartment to allow space to work on ours when they did it but I can't say for sure as we weren't there during the work.

It is a small space to woken in, but not hard at all. 2 lines and a bolt is the only thing holding them in. The good news is now I can run the power wire that comes from the inverter above the hydraulic lines.

Looks like that new fangled chain support system!

I removed mine at the same place Ryan had his removed. I was working the top and my Machinist friend was in the pit. Both sides were easy to remove, the drivers side more confined but still easy. Do door side first to see how it comes apart then other side is a breeze.

When you refer to the the door side jack being the easier to remove, do you have two sets of batteries with the second set being stored in the front door side.

I haven't had the problem with my jacks yet but scoped it out per the amount of coverage given. I like standing on my feet accessing the jack rather than laying on my belly. But looking at almost 7 years of owning a FW nothing is impossible if the old bones allow wiggle room.

I do not have the door side batteries. Do you have this style ram?

It's simply two hoses and a bolt on the door side. Drivers side one hose and manifold and bolt.

Looks like mine, the main difference as I can imagine is how cozy is to lay down and work over the DS battery enclosure, IF that comes to be.
Good pictures thanks.
