On Tuesday, I hooked up the Eagle and drove it to my old workplace to show it off to my former coworkers. Several of them were very impressed with the features, finish, openness, and general livability of it. First time I towed it since bringing it home from the dealer in January, and it went really well. Used the WDH but not the sway bar, since it was all surface streets. Think I need to go with one more link on the WD bars, since I did experience a slight amount of porpoising. That will probably change once it's fully loaded. Was glad I got a chance to test things out before the first big outing the end of April.

Have been working on some mods: 3" Memory Foam Mattress Topper; Pot & Pan, Dishware, and Small Appliance Stabilizers; some Roll-out Trays for the Pantry; and general décor/outfitting. Also plan to insulate the Under-bed & Front Pass-thru Storage areas, like others have done. Will post pics when all is done.

Thumbs up 1997 Jayco Conversion Van

Greetings and felicitations,

I am planing a 16 week trip across the country, so I took my 1997 Jayco E250 Econoline Extended Club Wagon in for repairs at my local Ford dealer.

To make a long post short I had the following parts replaced and along with a complete tuneup:
Alternator w/ new wiring harness
A/C Compressor Assy. w/system charge
Starter and solenoid
All 8 Power Modules w/ plugs and wires
Tension Pulley
V-belt tensioner
Vehicle battery(standard) and Leisure battery(deep cycle marine)
Right upper and lower ball joints (Left side only 4 months old)
Both front wheel bearings inspected, then repacked
Front wheel alignment
Engine serpentine belt
Oil change w/filter
4 tires balanced
Vehicle front blower motor resistor module
Chassis lubrication

I spent almost $3K. LOL! I chose Ford replacement parts for the warranties associated with them. The fact that Ford uses original Motorcraft parts is a plus for me. No cheap bootleg parts. I like the fact I can take my camper to any Ford dealer, and they will honor the warranties. I do realize that the Dealers are generally a lot more expensive, than, say a local repair chain.

Having a safe and reliable camper is a must for me, and I don't regret spending one penny.

Today I de-winterized and tested the appliances etc for proper operation in preps for our first trip this spring. I did however realize I (after the fact ) that when I pulled the drain plug on the HW tank to flush I forgot to open the pressure valve first. Spent 15min looking in a leaf covered yard 15' from the camper for that stupid plug.
