I/we purchased our 184BH in 2013. We love it. It is me, my wife, and two teenage daughters that use it. The girls use the bunks and we use the fold down table.
1. We have had 1 of the shades cords rip, and Jayco replaced the whole shade. We have learned it is not to hard to replace the cord if one rips again.
2. The tanks are small for a continuous use as a family. Especially if we shower. So we are picky at our camp sites.
3. THE CAMPER PULLS AWESOME WITH MY KIA SEDONA V6 3.5 LITTER. Typically 19/20 mpg hwy, with camper 10/12 mpg. You know, i heard it's the same with bigger v8s with bigger camper. so the proportion is good because i dont drive a gas hauler v8 all year round.
4. We installed a tv bracket on the bunk wall and mounted a 14" TV with a swing out bracket. The bracket mounted to the TV can lift out of the wall mount. During travels we dismount the TV. I used a strong back on the bunk side for support because the wall is hollow and OEM material is weak.
5. We ran a cable from the coaxial connection by the door through the cabinets, across the roof, down through the cabinets on the bunk side and out the bottom through the radio cavity. When we dismount the tv we push the cable up the hole.
6.The windows fog up a lot and we are looking at alternatives, where the bathroom vent fan will be an awesome addition, not only for regular bath odors, but,
7. A hot summer day last year (2013) the 5000 btu was definitely inadequate. We used fans to try to blow the air to the bunks, but in Aransas like other states it is humid. A bathroom exhuast fan may help vent out high heat, but the 5000 btu unit air really does not circulate adequately. We bought vent pillows and will try them too.
8. I bent a stabilizer a couple of weekends ago and can't find a part number. I called the dealer which is kind of far from my home and he guestimates he has one for $30. It does rock a lot. Can I buy one?
9. One day we were sitting inside because it rained and the CO2 detector/LP Detector cut the propane off. I was not educated too well on the function, but our stove wouldn't lite nor our hot water heater. I took my tank and everyone said it was full. That's when I started reading the manual and indadvertantly pulled the fuse for the LP Gas Detector which cutsoff the propane. I realize that this their to prevent a camper from filling up with propane and igniting when a door is open. Something like that.
The camper pulls great because our dealer really took care of us. THey provided the levelizing system along with the anti-sway bar. I am fixing to to go to Georgia and I use Google Earth incline profile to give me an idea of the hills to look out for.
