How tall is my 2014 SR 300?

Im hoping to make an offer on a remote garage to store my RV and other items in. The realtor had a laser measure device that says the door is 12'10". The spec's say my unit is 12'3" but I've never measured. Does that take into account the AC units and TV antenna?

Any feedback/help would be great!

Mine is a 2015 SR340, but measurements should be the same. I just stepped out to the driveway and put a tape on it. The coach is squatted right now (and leveled) but from the ground to the top of the ladder measures 11'-4". Just judging, but I would have to say the 12'-3" includes the AC hoods and the antenna.

Thanks, so I'd think 12'10" should be fine, especially if I let air out of suspension before pulling in.

Thanks!

As far as I know the dumping of air can only be done in conjunction of using auto levelers which won't work out of neutral.

Is there a manual dump valve that I am unaware of?

On mine I have a switch just to the left of the steering wheel that dumps the air. I have to do it manually before starting the leveling process. I'm sure I should drive with it down, but if I approach garage and then dump it right before it should work.


It may not dump if not in N and it may not go into D once it's dumped; I haven't tired.

You have equalizer levelers? We have a 2014 and don't think I have switch your referring to, do you have a picture?

OK, maybe I'm wrong because I haven't had the Legacy long, but just to the left of the steering wheel is a switch that is basically a toggle switch. It does effectively lower the coach when I put the switch in the "down" position.

The first weekend I used the Legacy, I tried to use the self leveling system and it kept telling me "Excess Slope" and wouldn't level. Heck, only one leg went down. So I called a buddy who has the same coach and he told me to dump the air first using the switch and then the leveling system worked perfectly.

Am I missing something here?

Unless they changed the system I'm pretty sure on the 2014 we don't have a separate switch.

Maybe I'm missing something, this is news to me.

There is the switch described on the 2015 Legacy. Just a toggle to the left of the steering wheel. You can level it without dumping the air (I've done it). The "excess slope" message just indicates the system couldn't find the preset level point and the hacks are all the way out. I get the same message from mine when I level in our driveway, but I checked it with a level and it's so close to level it doesn't matter. Letting the air out of the suspension just lets the step be closer to the ground. They do tell you to be very careful if you move the coach with the bags deflated as the tires can rub. Probably want to do a walk around and gave a spotter as you pull it in the first few times.
