Clean up the wiring and plumbing and make the beds more solid. The manufacturing process was just as sloppy in 2005 as it is now. But we'll make it our 2nd home the way we like it. Love the heated underbelly as we use it more during 4 seasons. Dealer has the brakes and bearings serviced and got new battery and new 30 lb. propane tanks. And so we keep having fun. Because of its low profile and lite weight I can tow without WDH and sway bar. No problems with semi's passing by.

What Did You Do To Your Jayco TODAY?

How often should bearing be packed? 1x a year for light use correct? 2x a year for moderate to heavy.
I'm still so new to RVing I don't know what maintenance should be done when. I'm sure it's on the forum somewhere.

We travel about 5,000 miles a year and so far I've repackaged at the end of every season. It might be overkill, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Measured for a new toilet, repaired a leak in the bath faucet. Returned defective alarm monitor, re-ordered another.

Every 5K is what our dealer recommends. I decided to to have this done at the beginning of each season so I just picked it up from the dealer after having it done.

Cleaned up the rear bumper and tongue with some sand paper and sprayed a new coat of Rustoleum semigloss black on them. Also put a coat on the rear stabilizer jacks.

Getting things ready for an early morning escape tomorrow. Leaving Quartzsite before dawn, and arriving in Moab, UT tomorrow afternoon.

Filled up the truck and a couple 5 gallon containers with gas, filled up propane, washed clothes, bought food and some cheap Arizona booze, a new tube of Dicor sealant. Still have to get the bed of the truck loaded, tires aired up, and the inside of the TT ready for travel.

Last, I will hitch the TT to the TV, go dump the tanks, and position my rig near the road for quick getaway in the morning.

Looking forward to a ROAD TRIP! And new scenery. The Quartzsite desert has gotten pretty old after being here for 5 months solid. It's also getting too hot for me- 85 degrees isn't pleasant to me.

Has anyone hung a kayak on the ladder on a jayco Motorhome. The kayak is 8 ft long and weighs less than 30 lbs. If the ladder can support an adult it seems it would hold the kayak. I am also considering a 200 CC scooter on the trailer hitch. Has anyone done this and where have you bought the rack. Scooter weighs about 300 lbs.
