Do you believe the dealer has actually ordered the parts? Too many folks have been told dealer is "waiting on parts" when in fact, after they called Jayco to find out what the delay was, parts weren't ordered.

I'll call Jayco tomorrow with the VIN# and ask. Thanks for the idea. Sometimes it doesn't pay to be too trusting!

Changed my fresh water hose before "she blows".

This hose has been in service for 9 months full time and has never seen pressure higher than 52 psi. I always have my pressure reducer on the spigot. It was a free hose that someone left on a campsite last year so I can't complain I guess. It was originally a 5/8" hose, but is closer to 3/4" now except where this blowout was about to occur.

A TT on fire while traveling near Medicine Hat, AB and even started a grass fire.
My son in-law is a Tow Truck Driver and called me about it. Cause wasn't know at time yet. But propane on while traveling or a loose electrical wire rubbing on metal will be a most likely cause. He didn't know what make and model it was. A lot of melted and bended aluminum.

After I removed my underbelly no wonder things like this can happen. Wires rubbing on the cross members. Propane connections and their system should be checked regular.

Doesn't Quite Fit

We discovered that while the tinted plexiglass replacement for the window in the door fits perfectly, looks better than the old clear-but-textured glass - because it matches the other windows - and allows us to see out while not letting people look in ... the clear piece of plexi we ordered for the bottom part of the screen is off by 1/16th inch.

Our choices are to take it back to the place that cut it, and have them trim off that extra 1/16th, or do it ourselves with a palm sander. We checked with the shop and they said that would work. We think it would probably take about the same amount of time to do it ourselves as to go back to the shop, wait, and drive home, so we'll probably do it ourselves.

We also painted the plant anchors we attached so that the DW can hang decorative seasonal garlands on the trailer. We will be adding two more anchors when the welcome sign we ordered gets here and we know exactly where to position the hangers.

Over the past frw days I cleaned and inspected the roof. Washed the exterior. Checked the tires, propane, electrical and plumbing. Restocked toiletries and other paper essentials. Washed and loaded up the sheets, towels and blankets. Installed a wireless remote dimmer control for awning lights. Ordered a TPMS set up. Inventoried all other essential gear and prepared my list of "need-ums". All this and our first trip isn't happening until the children finish school in June!

Pulled it into Spokane, WA late this morning, from my Airway Heights parking lot spaces I was at last night. Passed through Washington, into Idaho and stopped at the Cabela's in Post Falls. Bought a new RV 3-prong to 15 amp 120 VAC converter plug (not the pigtail type) for $4.99 + tax. Got to dump at their dump station for free since I was a customer- regular price for a dump- $5.00. Can I work it or what!?

Stopped by my neighbors-from-the-90's house and visited a little while, left, went to Walmart, where I am now, to get a few MORE things (beer included), and will be going back to my friends house and park it in their driveway for a day or two or three, and drink a few beers, which I haven't been doing much of at all lately, but decided that it's high time to get a little stupid for a change of pace.

Now that that run-on sentence is finished, I'm finished here too.

Finally emptied out the under-bed storage and vacuumed all the sand out from the recent Lake Mead trip. It's ready to go again!

Big thank you to Tom! I've been dealing with the dealership and Jayco this week. I must say Jayco was great to deal with, my dealership...not so much!

Needless to say they never ordered my parts and didn't even have the complete list of items that needed to be fixed, even though we gave them a typed out sheet and emailed them the list of repairs.

So after dealing with the manager over service today (who by the way is new, so I can't blame him, which adds to my frustration!), they will be checking their 2 other dealerships for parts and at my strong suggestion, be scavenging parts off of their current inventory. And I will be getting a call tomorrow from the General Manager, who was conveniently off today!

Needless to say, I not pleased with Rv-Maxx right now!

No that's what I did to my Jayco today...I fought for her!
