Has anyone had trouble with the rear view camera? I had the dealer put on a longer antenna last week and it improved our reception by at least one bar. Most of the time at 60+ mph we would loose all signal due to the RV being so long. This fix came directly from Voyager and if it doesn't work they also sent wire to move the antenna close to the front of the rig. I am going to try just the antenna for I don't want a loose wire on the external part of the RV.

I can explain the Island and the carpet. I was at my dealer today and there was another 377 in for repair next to mine. I naturally asked why. Jayco has moved the island closer to the door side since the early models like mine. The reason they did this is because the residential fridge doors were getting beat up going down the road as they were rubbing on the island. I don't have the residential fridge, but that was what the other 377 was in for. It's island is getting moved about 3/4 to 1 in. I have seen no evidence of rub on my Norcold fridge.

The DW and I still laugh at the first one we saw last year. The bedroom door would not open fully because the dresser was in the way.

Mine was in for the following repairs.

1. Light leakage on kitchen/entertainment slide.
2. Hole in awning.
3. Sink would leak water around one corner when doing dishes.
4. Bottom drawer in island would open during travel.

Question>>> why aren't the fridge doors locked?
If they lock them, they won't rub the island

They were locked and they rubbed. I am not familiar with the locking mechanism but if I go tie my double door fridge shut in my home I can still get the doors to open a hair or two.

I believe the residential fridge is deeper than the RV fridge do it sticks out further. Thus the need to move the island

I meant to say that and I kind of did but you have to read through the lines. The dealer said the fridge took a beating and new doors are on the way and the island is getting moved.

When mine is locked, it's locked. Doesn't open at all.
I've never noticed it being too close to the island and the carpet hits but it doesn't fold up enough to worry about.

Poking around on-line last night and saw that one of the mid-year changes for our rig is a residential fridge. One of the other changes is that there's now a cut-out at the end of the island - wonder if that's to handle the bigger fridge?

We went with the 12 cubic foot fridge (Norcold) and don't have any issues with it rubbing.

I have less than a 1/4" space on my residental fridge and the island on mine. Already changed the freezer door. The latch works its way loose in transit.

i feel pretty fortunate. We have had ours for about 3 months and so far so good. We are currently on our 5th long weekend trip and the only issue I have really seen so far is the carpet issue already mentioned. Ours too flatens out relatively quickly. I think our dealer did an excellent job preparing it for delivery. We purchased from a local dealer who gave us a great deal and they finance through the local branch of our bank which we do business at a lot. I know sometimes you get better deals going through some of those huge dealerships but we got a pretty darn good deal staying local and I think it is paying off for us. I am sure we will be in there at some point for some type of work but I feel really good about our experience so far.
