Vibrations at 60 to 65 mph which has been said it's due to being unable to balance the drive shaft due to the frame extension.
Helper springs not adjusted properly from the factory.
The tank less hot water heater issue.
Complaints on the nav system
Hydraulic leveling jacks mounted too low.
And of apparently according to this thread the owners manual is worthless.
Not that that in itself is a big deal but it does say something about the manufacturer if they can't even put a decent manual in the new owners hand after spending $80,000 or so.
These things I'm reading here and at other forums are starting to add up.
I don't plan on ordering a new one until February so I have until then to keep up on things to see if Jayco corrects any of these items.
