Thank you all for the help. I managed to find the water pump and figured out how to bypass the hot water pump, Jayco had provided a clear tube to suck in the antifreeze. I drained the hot water tank first, then blew compressed air thro'the whole water system and then bypassing the hot water system, ran the water pump till I saw pink antifreeze come out thro' the faucets, bathroom taps and toilet flush. All of this cost me $16.00 ($14.00 for the antifreeze) & 2hrs since I was doing it very carefully as it was my first time doing this procedure and also my trailer was brand new. Hopefully I have done everything right and we have a great camping season in 2013.

Drain as noted in the above instructions, close the system back up, insert the clear tube coming off of the water pump into the antifreeze and suck a couple gallons through and you are done. $5 in antifreeze and less than an hour of time and you are done. An easy way to save $95 and since you did it yourself and saw the pink antifreeze coming out everywhere you know it is done correctly.
Don't forget the outside shower if you have one

Can you please explain what do you mean by "run the stool" ?

What do you mean by stool in this case ??


Thanks

He meant to flush the toilet, which would displace clear water with antifreeze in the flush valve.

I'm guessing its a nautical term.

Don't forget the outside shower if so equipped and also pour a cup or so of antifreeze down each drain when finished.

Hello
I am anew owner of a Jayflight SLX 18Bh and was looking for a propane cover but the propane regulators is attached to the front of the trailer

I have a similar trailer, I bought a vinyl snap on propane cover from the dealer and the hose to the regulator fits out via the snap opening at rear. It looks loose in this picture because it was opened to get hand in to open and close tank, but while travelling the snaps are all closed and the cover works very well.
