Can I ask who you've worked with in customer service? I might ask for them next time I call! I called and emailed last on August 4th and haven't heard back from them yet. Cummins completely unhooked our generator from the coach twice and ran it through 2-3 hours of testing and it performed perfectly ( or so they said, I wasn't there) When I talked to Jayco a week ago they said that they are aware of the problem, more RVs than ours are having the same issues and their technicians are working on it. They are hoping to have a fix in a couple of months. I wish Jayco would have contacted their dealership service departments or Cummins about these coaches, it would have been nice to know that there is nothing to be done about it until the techs figure it out! As far as the lemon law goes, in our state at least, it only covers the Ford part of the coach which is working fine. Our attorney is looking into the Magnusson/Moss warranty act though because it's a federal law that protects consumers. Thanks for your reply, most people in this forum are really helpful!

Hopefully that fan should be an easy fix for you!

Cooling the coach

Quote by Ryanandcollette

"The generator won't run the A/C when the coach is moving, so unless you are driving or in the passenger seat you are going to be very hot. Love the look of the new styled windows but you can't use them to cool the coach down on the road. We had to drive home from a trip in the middle of the night because it was 100 in the daytime. We took our rig in to 2 different Cummins and to our dealership service department 3 times for this problem. Still not fixed, and our service department literally said they give up. Dealing with Jayco directly now, they are slow to email and vague when they do respond. When I called, the customer service rep was not very forthcoming. When asked directly he said he hopes they will have it figured out in a few months. This is just one of our issues. So thank you Larry G. for taking the time to hear me whine."

I can't fix your generator but I read in another post how to cool the entire coach while running just using the dash air.

Turn the A/C control to NORM A/C, set the fan speed at 2 or 3 or high and Open either your bathroom ceiling vent or your bedroom ceiling vent without turning their fans on. As you travel down the road cooled, outside air will enter the coach, the existing hot air in the coach which rises to the roof will exit through the rear vent. It works!

The entire coach stays cool.

We are still on our around the country trip in our new 2016 Greyhawk 29 MV and are still traveling in the hot as hell western states and we have never had to use the generator when running except for lunch breaks on the side of the road.

I hope your genny problems can be resolved.

Quick update, I've been dealing with Paul at Jayco customer service, not a great experience. But then I had my husband call in and he got to talk with a new person, Bill, who was very knowledgeable and nice and hopefully has us going in the right direction. So I guess my advice is if at first you don't succeed, try someone else.

Just a thought on this generator shutting down while moving. I had this on my last class C. Fuel pickup line to the generator was vaporizing in the fuel line before it got to the generator. With 100 degree ambient temperatures and the heat from the engine/exhaust system the fuel can't stay in a liquid form. Cooler temperatures on both helped. Wrapping the fuel line with insulation solved the problem.

Have them follow the fuel line from the generator to the gas tank. Anywhere the line passes close to the exhaust or muffler is your culprit. If it can be rerouted further away that will help. But the whole think may have to be insulated like mine. Tremendous heat comes under the coach from the engine compartment on the class c's.
