I did add a hardwired rear facing camera system . Had to . Could not see end of trailer out pass. Side mirror . Now can see behind and to both sides , much better . I think jayco should have a rear facing viewing option , especially on a unit of this length .

Which one did you buy slaw? I agree, it should be an option or standard like a MC.

I'm a little late reading this thread, but we have the 3914 for just over a year now and love it. I personally would go with the recliners as I don't think the U shaped couch in the kitchen is all that comfortable.

I don't know if you're give the option, but if you are, I would look at replacing the roll down screen between the garage and patio deck with something different. If not, make sure you think of something you can put on it so you know it's there. We walked into it all the time (maybe it's just senior moments )

Never had a problem finding a spot for it. We stayed mostly in state parks in Ohio.

We tow it with the F350 Super Duty dually and it does fine, although I think it's maxed out.

Enjoy it. It's a great camper/house

Hi Kenny, I'm was really thrilled to read your reply. We will be picking her up in a couple weeks. I really believe this rig is perfect for our family. We did get the theatre recliners, I was a little reluctant but I've heard now three times owners say the U isn't great. So in the interest of full disclosure, I as well as the dogs will hit the screen door in the slider here at home at least once per summer, so I can fully understand the roll down screen issue! Were pulling with a '14 Ram 3500 DRW, however I will be interested to see how bogged down she is with the monster. 44' is a biggin', and there are a lot of campsites listing 'no big rigs' here in CT, just purchased the Big Rigs Best Bets book and online subscription, which is helpful, but my guess is there are more sites out there that have maybe one or two spots that can accommodate, and best part is with the gen, we don't need hookups, so I will be doing some research to find out if we can take this into a park, forest, etc that doesn't necessarily have 'RV' parking.

Keeping an eye on that fuel tank issue, PDI in two weeks, however trying to explain this to the dealer (there a recall coming that you don't know about yet) looks like an exercise in futility, but I would love to have it fixed before so even take delivery.

Keep the good news flow in'! I'm grateful for the Seismic group here, seems not only did I get a Jayco, but a special model at that, unique I guess we can say!

Never thought I'd be a tractor trailer driver though... Doh!

Ok. Good luck. Oh... and the screen issue. To make matters worse, it's right at the bottom of the floor drop off to the ramp. So not only do you hit the screen, it can knock you down because you don't have the footing of a level, flat floor.
I wasn't aware of a fuel tank issue (haven't been lurking much lately). I'll look into it.

Best of luck.

Ok. So I finally took a 3 hour drive to the dealer and picked up the seismic and brought it back last night. Among a fee other issues (was somewhat of a rushed demo) I'm having issues with this leveling system. It's an LCI panel with an Atwood "brain" and electrical actuators. When I attempt to auto level on a hard pretty level surface, when the rear jacks begin to raise the rear end they seem to struggle and the motors finally torque out and the panel will either shut off and turn back on and then give an error of "out of stroke" or just go to the error. What's interesting is the middle set of jacks don't do the kiss thee ground test nor do they move to assist the rear jacks. Thoughts? The test at the dealer seemed to go fine. They did tell me if I screw up the sequence at all the system goes into confused and screwed up mode. I just think something's not right if the middle jacks don't move. Are they considered rear jacks as well and move in conjunction with the aft set? Long post I know. Thanks for any info in advance. I'm not happy at all about this.

Wow. Sorry to hear you are having problems right out of the box. And I'm more sorry that I can't help you. I have never owned auto level jacks and don't know a thing about them.
I'm sure someone in the forum should be able to help though.

Ken

Update: spent a few hours with unit this morning. Made progress. Error in my first post, this is an LCI system, panel brain, ETC. I'm hitting out of stroke error because i extended the front landing gear extensions too much with the pin. So brought them up a few pin positions and it gets the front end lower so the rear jacks aren't trying to raise the back end to match the distance from the ground in the front. They were trying to raise the back end off the wheels. So I got unit level but still getting the out of stroke in back corner which still is nearing full travel. I found the mid body gear don't extend until auto level mode reaches auto level successful then it drops the mids to just add support without changing body angles. That's where I stand. Got to 0.1 left to right last try before rear jack hit the stroke error but got a green center light. Couple more times of trial and error and I should be good. System otherwise seems to be working as advertised. Anyone with experience with this, Id appreciate your input. Thanks in advance.
