I plan on, at sometime this summer or fall, to remove the bottom covers and give a look see. Of course my unit is 8-9 yrs old, so I'm sure I'm not voiding any warranty. I'm curious as to the lay-out under there. I may see something that needs attention.

I went to my Jayco dealer todoy and complained about the tanks being labellad wrong. They are going to remove and replace all the fabric in the bin's, remove and replace the insulasion and belly pan on the underside on the 5er no trouble. You gotta love people that stand behind there product. Glad I bought a Jayco.

Are the underbelly panels user removeable ??? It appears that they are. They have multiple screws holding them in place.

No telling what I may find, but its impossible to assume till ya look.

Yep they are... the dealer has already had mine dropped twice.. and the unit is only 4 months old.. no one can figure out why I cannot get heat in the kitchen living room. Bedroom is like a sauna K&LR freeze. I have blocked off all the other room vents and still little heat to those rooms.

I'm planning an extended weekend coming up and may remove an enclosure panel or two just out of curiosity.

Hope things will appear to be in order.

Sean 45,

We have had a similar problem with our 2008 and 2010 RLSs--bedroom too hot when door is closed compared with bathroom and living room/kitchen. We now leave the bedroom door open, the bathroom door open and the door between the living/kitchen and the shower/sink area open half way (to block out light from the living/kitchen area. However, when our grandsons are sleeping in the living room we have to give them extra blankets.

In another thread on this forum another owner had his unit in for repairs and the dealership found that the duct work from his furnace as too small, resulting in the furnace cycling on and off too quickly. The dealership installed larger ducts at no cost to the owner. Perhaps you can ask your dealer to evaluate your ducts and determine whether Jayco will approve installation of larger ones as warranty costs if the dealer determines the ducts are too small. I will see if I can find the other thread and repost it on this thread for you.

Dealer finally got it fixed... they found that the furnace blows harder in certain areas of the fire box so just moved the lines so the high pressure area went to the living room... now the front and back are within 1 degree F of each other.. I am happy again...
