Maiden Voyage 29MV

Hooked up yesterday and rolled up the road about 40 miles to Blanco SP. Beautiful spring weather has arrived, although thunderstorms are in the forecast for our departure on Thursday. Had an issue connecting to shore power when we arrived leaving us without power for about 30 minutes or so. Other than a sticking cargo bay door, we've encountered no serious problems. To our surprise, the tankless HW system works great on the lowest setting. Hope to get in some trike riding through the hill country today...

Glad to hear your first trip out was a success! Especially with the tankless water heater.
Hey, I'm jealous. You've got slide toppers on your rig. I'm going to have to get some soon. Don't like having to clean off the top of the slides before moving on.
This is my third MH and so far I think I got a lot of bang for the buck. We're on the road to the coast in a couple of days for our second trip. We've made a handful of mods to the rig since the maiden voyage and now we can check them out. Also be an opportunity to put the DW behind the wheel to see what she thinks.

The awning LED lights are a nice touch:



Beautiful weather greeted us again this morning. Quick cuppa joe, then a ride along the river:







We'll take the MH to our dealer next week for some minor warranty repairs, then wait until the next trip to Marble Falls in April.

Where ya heading out to, Rick? Take pics!!!

Took the Greyhawk 29MV to the dealer for warranty work last week following our maiden voyage. Our discrepancy list included:

1. Broken TV antenna rotating lever. It broke as we were bringing the antenna down in preparation for the return trip home. As I rotated the lever, the mechanism fell out onto the floor which left the antenna raised. It took about 20 minutes, but I was able to twist the antenna into the stowed position for the return trip.

2. Shower floor has a large (air) bubble in the floor which prevents draining. (Middle shower floor is raised about two inches higher than the edges)

3. Unable to open LR storage compartment door due to sticking latch.

4. Initially unable to apply campground power to MH. Once hooked to 30 amp campground power, the main power switch light would fade out culminating in lack of power to the unit. Generator started, but would not supply power to MH. Power mysteriously came on about 30 minutes later and stayed on the rest of the week. Could not duplicate issue.

5. Install Bluetooth mic in Jensen radio

6. Check all tires for inflation. One tire was under inflated by 22 lbs and another by 12 lbs when we go home from the dealer. My guess here is lazy PDI technician before delivery, but the service writer mentioned they have issues with foreign object damage (screws/nails etc. that could have been picked up in their service area).

The service department called this morning to provide an update on each issue:

1. Broken TV antenna mechanism will be repaired under warranty.

2. The shower floor is a problem. Awaiting Jayco authorization and parts to replace entire shower.

3. Technician is adjusting all storage door latches.

4. Unable to repeat mysterious power issue.

5. Await Jayco authorization to install Bluetooth mic.

6. Checking all tires for proper inflation.

I mentioned we are leaving next week on another quick trip, so we'll pick it up late this week, then return it to the dealer for the shower install which will take some time. Hopefully we'll have it in time for our 3,000 mile May trip thru the Midwest and east coast regions...

took mine out this past Easter weekend to the Sliverwood Lake area. My crank up Antenna would not turn, wood trim in bedroom slideout started to "unglue" and worst of all as we were heading home down the hill the Fridge door swung open and all the water bottles fell out as well as other food products unto the floor while vehicle was turning corners. Lock does not hold. Found my mic for the blue tooth.

Called dealer and have appt for Monday to fix all above.
