Don't know what mods you have done, some campgrounds do require blocks under all feet of your rig. Even if you have BIG feet pads.

Welcome!
This from a newly Jayco owner as well. Just got our 29QB home on Wednesday and getting ready for a shakedown as well. We come from a Shamrock Hybrid and so far we are totally loving these hard walls. Looking forward to some quiet sleep.
Enjoy your new unit and Happy Camping.

My first surprise when bringing our new Jayco home was realizing that my 30 amp service had no way to connect power to the new rigs 50A Marinco twist on connector.

Quick trip back to the dealer to purchase one. Now I have a box of adapters for every occasion.
