Thank you for the reply, I have been traveling (unfortunately without my coach) and have had little time to spend with the new addition to the family. Hope to spend some quality time next week.

We went through the walk through, found a number of the decals were lifting, the 30amp shore power line was cut, no bunk ladder(s), no cab over privacy curtain, no lower cab curtain, and one or two minor touch ups. Some things just don't come with the RV I guess..

Nothing we cannot fix easily. We were pleasantly surprised that the RV does have a water filter under the sink (one less thing to purchase).

Now we are pricing out all of the extra things we need to start the first trip. We cannot wait to get going. I'll update next week some of the changes we are doing to the rig. First to go is the stock radio.....I would have rather had no radio than the basic 1980s radio put in there. Have them save the 50 bucks and buy me a bunk ladder,ha..

Ours came with at least the lower cab curtain. It was in one of the drawers. The bunk ladder was a bit of a bummer. we put on 500 miles and camped 2 nights. Be careful to not mix up the fresh water in with the tank flush. Its a bit confusing.

Our redhawk didn't come with the ladder or top bunk curtain either. We got a standard ladder and cut the legs short to fit and it works great. It did come with the lower cab curtain but Jayco didn't attach Velcro to either the coach or the curtain.

I also swapped out the AM/FM radio for a touchscreen Bluetooth enabled one and while I was at it I changed the door speakers for better ones. It made a huge difference.

Just got ours about four weeks ago. One short trip 60 miles. Big trip to New Mexico coming in two weeks no big problems on first trip: popped gfi plug and small leak on toilet but with a screwdriver it went away. More to follow

So today I was pondering life and what happens when I blow a fuse.... Then thought about the RV.... Interesting lead in...

So on the Envoy 100 the fuse panel is at the foot of the bed. The bedroom slide moves in and touches the end of the bed. SO, you can't get to the fuse panel when the slide is retracted. So what might a person do if the fuse to the slide out is blown and the slide is in? I also cannot lift up the bed due to the plywood is locked just below a drawer handle. Here's where I blew my fuse...

Am I missing something here or did an engineer have a bad day when laying out this design???

Just about to cross the 5k mark

Love our Envoy. Hasn't been without some break in issues - a faucet that leaked, generator wires cut, front end out of align. That said Jayco has been great and responsive. Dealer not so much. Getting warranty service is a real issue but Jayco says they will pay most any reputable dealer for warranty repairs. Haven't tested it yet but have no reason to not believe them. Jayco certainly has stepped up so far.

Took a while to learn the plumbing systems coming from a 2001 class c that had much simpler plumbing. Prefer by far the utility center, has just been a bit of an education.

All in all I would buy another Envoy without question. Not sure I'd buy from the same dealer but that said, from what I hear there's not much improvement elsewhere.

We picked up our Envoy 100 29V (32') on 3/4/2017 - downsized from a 36' Grand Design 5th wheel - quite a change from the 5vr but will be able to pull our 2015 Jeep Sahara. So far we really like the rig and have had one issue - with the generator. The wire nuts in the junction box from the generator to the ATS were not fastened tightly and they came loose and melted the nuts. DH repaired this issue and we can now get power to the AC from the generator but apparently it shorted a relay somewhere and we are going to have to take it to the dealer to trouble shoot. We took out the uncomfortable sofa and replaced it with a Lamplighter reclining loveseat we bought in IN a while back. Drove home to AL from AZ and at 55 mph got 10 mpg....but were not pulling jeep. Headed out this weekend 4/7 for overnight trip a couple hours away to try the jeep Blue Ox tow bar. Remembered kitchen sink needs replacing - has no stop. Also following the Envoy, there was some water splashing from fresh water tank - need to find the drain.
