Welcome to Jayco and the forum. We've had our Greyhawk since August and have really enjoyed it. I expect your experience will be the same.

Gruene is a beautiful place. We spent a delightful Saturday there about three years ago while visiting friends in Wimberley. I even learned to pronounce it correctly as "Green."

Just bought a 2015MV mainly because of the floor plan, ride, and handling. Our previous rig was a 2008 Winnebago Sightseer on an F53 chassis. It rode and handled like a bread truck and I wasn't too excited about investing a bunch of money to attempt to make it ride and handle better.

So far really like the 29MV (had a 2005 Jayco Escapade previously so knew Jayco made a good product). My biggest heart burn WAS with the tankless water heater. We used the rig for about a week in fairly cold weather and that water heater just doesn't cut it. We followed instructions to a tee and it just didn't work for us. You're supposed to run on it with only hot water turned on and modulate the temp with the flame control. Well, the flame control is across the hall so it's a bit difficult. Needless to say after multiple attempts we gave up and had the water heater replaced with a standard 6 gallon DSI that we were familiar with.

Is the front room TV easy to view? Looks to be awkwardly mounted to me...

Nothing great, but it's useable. It can be adjusted to any horizontal angle and would probably be a bit better if it could be angled down a bit. With the MV configuration it appears to be about the only place a TV could be located.

Also, make sure you can see the Bedroom overhead TV while your laying down in the bed. With my 26" TV I have to stand on the bed and look directly at the TV to see it. I am planning on replacing with a "tilt" control arm (even though the Dealer should be the one).

Bluetooth Not Set Up

So, here I sit patiently waiting and staring out the window waiting ( getting excited each time I see the Mailman......

After we took possession of our 2015 Greyhawk 29KS recently, we also found out that the mic had not been installed. We did find it in the Blue Jayco Bag inside the coach. I did call Jayco just to determine who is responsible for the install and was told that any Jayco Dealer is authorized to install it and it would be considered warranty work. Another issue is that the Sirius Sat was not set up. Supposed to have 6 months free through Ford. Need to determine who's going to set that up.

We picked our 2015 29MV late September 2014 and so far after 2 short weekend trips love the unit. We are waiting for Spring to arrive and have booked a number of trips for the summer already. Oil changed in both the chassis and the generator and ready to hit he open road with the family.

My Bluetooth mic was also not installed but I found it in a box in the MH. I'll probably put it in myself to save a trip to the dealer. I just don't have the "keys" (metal sliders) needed to remove it unit song can get behind it. The install diagram in this link shows where to plug it in on the back of the unit.

Also, this diagram show where the Sirius antenna would go too. I doubt ill finding that laying around. The Sirius feature is greyed out on my display. Can't even get the code for the unit.

We're taking ours in tomorrow for the following warranty work noted during last week's maiden voyage:

1. Repair/adjust all storage bin latches. (Most stick or are misaligned)
2. Install bluetooth mic
3. Large air bubble under shower floor
4. Repair/replace antenna hand crank assembly (Fell off while lowering antenna)

Compared to some units we've owned, this list isn't all that bad, but most should have been corrected during a good QC inspection.

Other things should have been caught by our dealer before we left the lot. For example, before we pulled out of our driveway last week to begin the maiden trip, I checked tire air pressure. One right rear tire was 22 lbs. under inflated; another 12 lbs under inflated; two others about five pounds under inflated.

We had also paid to have the unit exterior treated, but when it rained last week, I noticed no rain beads on the truck cab. I wound up waxing it on Saturday.

Kinda chaps my hyde, so to speak...
