Mike in NY, 2012 Jayco 165

Purchased a Jayco 165 about a year ago to replace my old Scamp and give us a bit more room. Used it about 5 or 6 times last year, mostly boondocking for up to a week. Very Happy with it so far.

Have made some mods: External speakers, Twin propane tanks, front shelf for additional storage, converted upper bunk to storage. Plan to do a lot of traveling in it in the near future Only concern is that I just notice that the tires have some sidewall cracks. Trying to address that now.

Hello to all !

My tires were dry rotted in less that a year. My dealer contacted Jayco and they replaced them. My dealer said they don't usually replace tires, but all 3 including the spare were dry rotted and I keep them covered. What speakers did you add?
No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D
