The water pump is directly behind the water control panel on the right. FW tank just behind that compartment.

HI,

I am a new RV owner. I purchased a 2017 Jayco Melbourne 24'. I am wondering if the home only runs on propane or should it run on diesel? Several RVer's I have met have told me when I boonedock I should be able to run everything off the diesel and the propane is is for cooking and hot water. Please let me know.
Thanks

Do you mean is your generator propane or diesel? If so it all depends if you got the optional diesel generator. Propane is the standard option although most of the ones I have seen have diesel.

Hi,

I have a built in propane tank located on the drivers side next to the black/grey water. Other Rver's have told me I do not need to use my propane tank for running the home that I should be using diesel. Many have told me that they never heard of running all the elec/etc on propane that I should be using diesel from the "truck". I am so new that all this is very confusing.

Thanks

Do you know whether you have a propane or diesel generator? Your Generator will be on the passenger side right behind the door to go in. Can you open that door and tell us what generator model you have. Should be on the green case when you open the door. Snap a picture or post what the green case says. If you bought new do you have the sheet that lists all the items in your build? If your generator is propane then it will draw from your propane tank which is fairly common in RV's. If it is a diesel generator then it will draw from the fuel supply of the "truck". It is good for you to know this so that if you are boondocking you will know which tank to keep an eye on. I don't want to speculate but it Sounds like from your question you are running out of propane while boondocking and "others" around you are saying you shouldn't. If that is the case you most likely have a propane generator but if you can look and see which you have would be good to know.


edit: the generator location is for a 24K model. Not sure if other models are located there as well.

In our 2017 Melbourne 24L the generator is on the driver's side in the first compartment behind the driver side door. It runs on propane. To my understanding, this is the standard build for the 24L.

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for the replies. I have learned that all is std. I thank you for educating me. My RV has been in the shop.

I have a leak with water running from the dinning pop-out, near the drivers seat, along the table platform, under the platform down to the bathroom. Rugs have gotten soaked down that "hallway" trail to the bathroom. RV has been in the shop for 2 weeks. The mechanic told us he could bot find a leak. What do I when they don't find the leak yet I have been having leaks during the rainy season and cleaned up the water several times?

Does anyone have solar on their Melbourne? If so, any recommendations?

Take care,
Meri

PS: If you need organization ideas or cooking ideas just ask.

Don't know about your dealer but ours couldn't (wouldn't) fix a water leak in our back slide (we have the 24K). Our leak was only when we were traveling down the road in a downpour with slide in. Seems Jayco had left about 6" off the bottom sweep and water would splash up from the road and our tow vehicle right into that itty-bitty 6" gap. We finally took it back to the Jayco factory in Middlebury, IN to have the problem fixed. Make sure you document everything about your leak and your dealer's work; because in a camper, water is disastrous, and you definitely want to have any leaks fixed ASAP and while you're still under warranty!

Our 24K has solar - it's made by Nature Power, and we feel it's really important, especially when we're boondocking. We love our Melbourne.


By the way, our Melbourne generator is propane.
