I would measure the actual height. My coach (97 Allure) on the dash says 11' 10" and the highest point measures 11' 7" when at ride height.
I installed a switch in line with the 7.5 amp travel fuse in the HWH panel that allows me to dump the air and it stays out without holding the dump button. With the switch off you can start and the coach will not return to ride height until you pull out of the garage and turn the switch on. -- Chuck

I got the motorhome in garage with dw help

I had the coach in shop to replace slide out seals. While there i had tec measure hight is was 11ft 8 inches tall with air dumped. So with garage door being 11ft 10 inches , I went for it . I dumped air. Got DW on a step ladder to watch. She watched while i drove in with me holding the dump air button down. Made in just fine. This Dec when i go to Az i will air up with my air compresser to release the parking brakes and start engine and back out holding the dump button down. Got a smart DW to help. Thats my story and i'm sticking to it. Benchrest Later as what blackhillian said he did. I'll put a switch on the dump button.

My Brother-in-law, does the same thing with his Intrigue. Works great, and no bumps. They keep it in a 60' barn. If I am lucky, sometimes I get to park mine there too.

Damn, I'm Good!
