JBL legend cp100 on my 2017 37HJ. Just got it what a POS!

I wonder if Jayco actually tests anything before it leaves the factory. It is supposed to use Apple CarPlay and Adroid Auto. But it will not recognize the USB connection. We tried it on another 2017 Seneca and it had the same issue. My theory is that it is a USB power issue. It seems like they might be hooking the backup cam and the CarPlay stud to the only USB connection. Therefore overpowering the USB connection.

Mine also is requiring a hard reset to connect my Bluetooth device to the unit. It is going to be replaced when I take it in.

Been paying a lot of attention to this since I will be ordering a 37FS in mid-December. In addition/addendum to what is mentioned in this post:

1. The seats are more plush and are air ride. To me, they look identical to the seats in the DYNAMAX DX3.
2. The rear ladder is history, not even an option.
3. The in-dash JBL has been replaced with the Pioneer AVH-4200NEX. Very nice unit IMO.

Just to re-iterate on my post a few minutes ago. The Pioneer AVH-4200NEX replacement for the JBL just happened like in the last month. I have confirmed this replacement with Jayco and their web site now lists the Pioneer instead of the JBL. Sounds like a definire problem with the JBLs...perhaps Jayco might do a swapout??

Thanks Javamon for the updates. We have a 37TS on order with RV express and delivery date is around mid November. I'll make mine comes with the Pioneer and not the JBL. No Ladder are you kidding. Why did they eliminate that I wonder. Plusher seats cool.

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } Hi all, my wife and I just picked up our 2017 Seneca 37TS from Indiana RV Connection in Indiana and drove it back to Colorado. It drove really nice considering the winds (15-30+MPH )we drove through from Indiana to the middle of Nebraska. I notice some people posted they had their luggage doors open while in motion this did not occur for the 1100 miles we drove. In fact the day we picked the Seneca up we stayed at IRVC for the night and it rained hard with high winds all night long. We had no water or wind issues or concerns this was a great break in test.


I have a few questions which I do not see on the manual(s):
  1. Are the water tanks heated? I saw in the 2016 literature they were, in the 2017 there's no mention about the tanks being heated.
  2. Is there any information on how to use the entertainment setup / system? There are not Doc on the system. The system is way different from previous years (from what i've read). There's an HDMI switch where all 3 TVs are connect VIA CAT 5/6 cabling. Can the TV sound be routed to the speakers in the Seneca VS the TV speakers? I see there are Audio cables coming out of the TV then into the wall. Where are the cables going to?
  3. How much weight can each cargo bay hold?


Well thats about all the question I have, off to explore the new beast.

I had a similar issue with a pioneer in-dash. As it turns out, there are assigned ports on the pioneer for the Android auto/apple and you have to use the correct one for the desired feature. It may be as simple as getting under the dash and changing the connection.

The JBL is a Legend CP100. Not a good piece of equipment. My original went out before I got home with my 2017 37FS. Jayco sent me another to have put in and it did not work either. They have now sent me a Pioneer 4200NEX unit. I am now waiting to have it installed. JBL could not get their software to be certified by Apple & delayed the sale of this radio to retail a year to January 2017.

Wow! I have never cared for JBL electronics; their speakers aren't the worst, though...

I think you'll be pleased with your pioneer. I have an 8100NEX and outside of a few quirks with Android Auto freezing up while using the GPS/Map feature, it's a pretty good unit! -When they hook it up, make sure you let them know whether you're going to use android or iphone as it will make a difference as to which USB port they use in the back of the unit! -It took me three times in/out of the dash to figure that one out! :-)
