No 4-way levelers on Lucy. We thought about that too, but the 5th wheel is so easy to level. You just put blocks under the tires on one side, if needed, to level L to R. Then the landing gear levels is front to back... wala!

Plus your should still put down the jacks if you use the levelers, so we opted not to order them...

I do not have them either, and I do what you do, it has been easy on my last 5er and this one as well. I just thought I would ask, I do not think I will need them, the only thing that I am going to do is the JT strong arm stabilizers.

Bill, the jacks are the levelers. I LOVE the auto level. It's my favorite thing about the 5er to be honest. It probably stems from my last TT being a pain to level with the crank jacks but being able to drop jacks and hit ONE button is awesome. While it's doing its thing I hook up the water or sewage or something. I can literally be set up in less than 15 minutes and drinking adult beverages.

One "plus" I see for the rear cap, is that they have less of a chance for leakage.

They attach with one flat seam to the sidewall. With the standard rear wall, you notice the wrap around corner molding and the little corner caps?? They are exactly what my Wildcat has, and we had to have the rear wall replaced once already. The water ran down the trim where the roof is attached, and then into the corner moldings. They are sealed, so the water went inside the wall at both corners.

Not saying it will happen on the Columbus, but after one trip down that road, I am not looking for the second!!

Wow, we had that problem with our last 5er. Wildcat 29RLBS. Didn't know til we traded it in and they thoroughly inspected it. Must be a fault with the Wildcats.

Columbus 340RK Fiberglass Rear Cap

When we were ordering our 295RL the dealer got a 340RK in and send me a photo...

I'll post it here in case anybody is interested in what the rear cap looks like on the rear kitchen model.
