I do not think your list is to long. The hole that looks to have been made with a hammer instead of a drill, that should have never happened (IMHO).

I have had mine in 3-4 times this year already mostly for small things. The dealer has fixed a few things that were not even on my list. I have an appointment next week, the list is only 5 items long. All the issues I have experience I would fully expect with a new car or house.

What drives me nuts is when it is not fixed right and I have to bring it back in.

Tip; get bright colored 3x3 Postit Notes, write the issue on it and apply it to the location where the problem is. Then the service tech does not have to completely rely on what the service counter person entered on the computer. When mine is in next week for what appears to be a random water leak under the bathroom sink. Because I fully expect the tech will not be able to locate the leak. I also included a few photographs the pool of water and the above plumbing to show that it is not a leaky valve, faucet, seals, etc, for the systems tech to review.

I apologize for hijacking your thread, Boubou!
No problem!!!! Same here! Didn't know we had NOAA until yesterday lol

Great tip for post it notes!!!
I have to take a pick of the hole between fridge and couch to show you. It's really a shame they did this, I guess the dealer will have to remove the wall, cut around the ragged mess of a hole, move a wooden floor guide (to screw into) and reposition that wall ( it sticks out at the bottom). Hard to explain. Not such a big deal but shabby finish.
Luckily, we are only 20 minutes from dealer

Darn, when I read about what other owners find with their Jayco products, I cringe. Granted mine is located about 250 miles away, so it doe not get used a whole lot. I bought it in July, and have spent maybe a total of 18 nights in it. I have found only 2 issues. One was the caulking around the bath room tub faucet and the other was a couple of spots on the roof that I was not happy with the caulking. Everything else (knock on wood) appears fine so far.

Whenever I had work done I kept a list of the issues with me and went through it with the dealer. I did this over the phone when they called and said it was ready. That way when you get there you know it has all been addressed. In most cases they have asked the tech if one thing was missing. A good shop will have the list checked off that you provided as issues.

The post it's are a good idea too but I wouldn't just rely on them.

Bummer. Checked out my stereo last night - it's the 965, not the 975. No NOAA for me. Luckily I have a weather radio that I picked up from the LL Bean outlet store a few years ago, so we will keep using that. I don't see anything about being able to use the interface cable either, so I will just plug in the aux & usb at the same time to solve that issue.

One thing I noticed last night is between my A & B speakers. When A is selected on its own, both interior speakers play. When B is selected on its own, nothing plays. I'm guessing that's not right. Not an immediate concern by any means though. I can't see where I'd only use one of the inside speakers anyhow.

Our B speakers (or maybe C, I forget) powers the outside speakers. If you have the outside speaks and they don't work I'd pull the radio out of the cabinet (4 screws, easy) and check the wiring. Be forewarned, the wiring behind the radio may be pretty ugly. Mine looked like rats have been having a love-in back there.

Our C speakers power the outside - they're fine. I need to get up in there to the rat's nest anyhow and take out that top panel so we can use it as a cubby so I have somewhere to put my phone. Right now I have some leftover scrap of that non-slip cupboard liner that I stick on the range hood and set my phone on top of that. Not as sturdy as a cabinet, but it works for now.

I also have the 965 and there is a plug in for the interface cable on the back of the unit labeled I-pod cable. When you have it removed you should see a single balck wire with a female plug end on it. You need to purchase the interface cable from Jensen or some other outlet depending on the model of i-pod, phone you are working with.
