New to Motor Home Travel (Greyhawk 31DS)
My husband and I were long time campers; first with truck campers, then with fifth wheels. When he passed away last year I decided that I wanted to be able to travel with my son and his family, but not as his passenger. I sold the truck and trailer and purchased a 2011 Greyhawk 31DS.
I have 2 problems that seem to be "normal" according to the Jayco dealer that I took it to: the left side has most of the weight (the slides, the generator, the refrigerator), but the right side is about 2 inches lower in the rear. According to the dealer, the factory says this is a normal occurrence with this model - they put a block between the springs on the left side to compensate for the extra weight. I have to admit that I am not very mechanical, but wouldn't this cause abnormal tire wear and possible tweaking of the frame?
The second problem is the Clarion stereo/DVD player/back-up camera/navigation system. I've only had the motor home since June, but upon start-up I get a message that the software is out of date. I researched as to how to update the system (the manual was not very helpful) and found that the update is done on a micro SD card, and can be done via a web-site. I followed the directions and although my computer can read the card, the web site doesn't see it. Has anyone else experienced this and found a solution?
