When we got our first Jayco (25RKS) the dealer gave us 20% off on everything in his store, for 30 days.

However, they threw in a "ready to camp" kit with the new unit...

Toilet paper and tank chemicals.
Tee Shirts and hats (Jayco)
Coffee Mugs.
Fresh water hose.
Electric cable adapters (30a to 15a and 50a to 30a).
Extra water filter element.
Jayco zippered bag to hold all of the papers and little parts (like the TV remote).

We bought a water pressure regulator and a 30a surge protector. We also had the install 2 12v oscillating wall fans as part of the deal - no extra charge.

Note, make sure that you do your PDI first thing in the morning, everything should be running, and the fresh water tank filled, so that when they adjust the weight distribution and anti-sway the trailer is at a realistic weight.

The early AM PDI gives the dealer time to fix what is found before you leave the lot.

Enjoy!!

Thank you! We are getting a hitch in the deal from the dealer. Thanks we will read about the hitch adjustment. We needed to know that.

Great for the early am tip. That really helps. This salesman said they got away from the "cheap' Starter kit and just give a $50 gift card to their RV Store for supplies.

Well, I don't know about cheap, as the mugs, and hats were from Jayco, so I doubt that the dealer paid for them! lol

By the way, Charmin Ultra Soft tested as the best toilet paper for RV toilets. Dissolves fast and completely... just thought you should know!

Outdoor kitchen is AWesome! We love ours, was a must have requirement. Welcome to the insanity.

One important note that dealers usually do not tell you... if you keep your TT at home or a storage area without being hooked up to 110VAC power between outings, remove the 30 amp inline fuse by the battery box. If you do not remove it, the CO alarm, radio circuit board, and fridge circuit board in the TT will kill your battery in less than 2 weeks. Have the dealer show you where it is.

Some members install a battery cutoff switch to make it easy.

I was wondering if any owners of this Jay Feather was out there and could tell us anything we need to know. Also I will read a lot of your threads but where does everyone buy their hoses, antifreeze, tissue, etc from. I realize the start up can be quite expensive. So I have googled and found some great deals (1/2 the price of some retailers). Thanks and Happy Camping!
Welcome and good luck with your new TT! We're enjoying our first season with our new Jay Feather 23RLSW, and just love it.

X3 or X4 on Walmart. Yes, you're going to spend some $$$ as you get started, but it's worth it. Walmart has most everything you'll need, and if it's not on the shelf in the store then order it online and use in-store pickup - shipping is FREE.

He was talking about they gave cheap hoses in the kit that would break. He hasn't mentioned hats or shirts but maybe we will get some Jayco shirts and hats would be great
