Since this older thread seems to have been recently resurrected, I think I'll add my 2 cents worth . . . sort of an update to my earlier posts after a year of ownership and 7-1/2 months of "full-timing" in it.
Problems - not much (other than the things I've caused, myself):
1) Wire from the electronic ignition to the high-output burner on my stove has a break in it. E.I. on the other two burners works fine. One of these days, I'll have to send an E-mail to Jayco requesting a replacement wire. Until then, I'll just continue lighting that burner with a long-nosed grill lighter. No big deal.
2) The center post on the RCA jack for the video input (from DVD player into the television) broke off a couple of months ago. Couldn't watch a DVD for a couple of days. Hooked up my laptop to the HDMI 1 input on the TV and was able to watch them through the disc drive in the laptop. Actually found the picture quality to be better than through the DVD player. Got tired of the extra cable hanging down, so I eventually bought a new "high quality" RCA cable. Tried to pull it through the wall (from the DVD player to the TV) using the existing cable, but the existing cable is evidently stapled to a stud somewhere and wouldn't budge. There's an access hole in the floor of the cubby above my DVD player, so I was able to run the new cord from the TV through that hole and into the back of the Jenson unit. That works for now, but will probably have the selling dealer run the cable through the wall as a warranty repair when I return to Michigan in another month or so. I couldn't be happier that these are the worst problems I've had with it in the first year of ownership!
Plusses: 1) Love the full 7' interior ceiling height. It makes the interior seem so much roomier. Also gives me more head room in the shower.
2) Since I added the second (left side) friction sway bar, It tracks and tows very nicely behind the F150 Eco-boost TV.
3) Love the floor plan! Plenty of clothes storage space, adequate kitchen countertop space, comfortable seating, and plenty of floor space for the dog and me. Even enough room for entertaining two additional people. (3 or more makes it a little tight).
All of the analysis of my needs/wants, the 2 years of on line research, visits to the dealership, and studying of brochures, as well as the careful planning have really paid off. I love my Eagle 266 RKS
, and love the "Full-time" RV lifestyle.
