First off....new member....New Jayco 314BDS!!!
Super excited about the unit. I went to the dealer intent on buying the 304BHS....but for 2 extra feel of TT length you get the second bathroom door, larger bunkroom, bigger bunks, etc. etc. I am a little worried I now have "too much" trailer (i.e. too long as I upgraded from a 27 footer) but I remember being scared of the 27 footer at one point....that quickly went away.
Couple of things I need help on:
* [Big One] The trailer tongue is only large enough to support a single battery. I have two 6-volt batteries, so I need room for two batteries to get a working 12-V system. What have other owners done? Are you only using a single battery?? I ended up having my local Jayco service center weld me an additional tray for a second battery to the tune of $200.
* Is there a battery disconnect switch on this unit? Cannot find any evidence of one....but most higher end units have them.
* The unit had extensive rock-chip damage on the front cap upon delivery. It is getting fixed under warranty. What should I do to prevent this from happening again? Will mud-flaps on my truck go along way or should I look into installing some diamond plate?
Thanks, and looking forward to hundreds of posts on this board with all of you!
