New Member 2016 Greyhawk 31FS

Hello all, picking up our new Greyhawk 31 FS on Monday.
Any delivery-inspection info/tips would be great. I had read about vibration issues on here, but did not have any on test drive. Got it up to 70 mph on freeway. No problems. Salesman said they have taken care of it. We are planning on leaving for spring break in a couple weeks. So any shake down advice would be great. Thanks

Congrat! GH is a great vehicle. Eventually you need to take every drawer out look under them, open up all of the screwed panels and inspect what is behind them. Hopefully no surprises however, you will learn and in some cases folks have found issues that need attention. Think of it as prevention and education.

Good luck!

Congratulations on the new coach. I think Ford resolved the vibration issue on the drive train.

My Grey Hawk 29MV is only three weeks old, and "NO VIBRATION" issues that I can feel..

I bought my 2016 29MV last July. It was one of the first 2016's to be sold. It came with the 60MPH vibration. Some time after that many Class C's were sitting on lots waiting for the fix. Most of the 2016's were fixed before being sold by the different manufacturers including Jayco. My 29MV was back in Indiana to get some collision repairs (not my fault!) and the factory repaired the vibration. I drove it home 750 miles after the repair and it worked very well. The 6 speed tranny is a big improvement on my last Greyhawk with a 4 speed. Enjoy your new Greyhawks - my handles very well even in windy conditions on the interstate.

WDW, what exactly am I looking for behind the panels and drawers? I have owned several "NEW" rv's and have never been impressed with quality control. They figure if you can't see it, it doesn't need to be cleaned. Oh well, that's why I will shake it down before we leave on vacation. Thanks

Camper Bill

Hello All,
Glad to find this site. Recently bought my 2016 Greyhawk. Have really enjoyed it. I have owned Jayco campers for a lot of years, first motor home though.
I would like to know if anyone has trouble with their coach door. Mine squeaks while traveling. I am not impressed with the dead bolt being the only lock as well. When locked it will open off its first pull latch and open about an eight inch. Enough for someone to get a screw driver in for prying open.
Any help or opinions welcome.
Thanks.

We have the Redhawk 29XK. Had same squeak. Drove the DW nuts.....well more nuts. Applied Teflon spray lube to the striker plate and the area of the 2 studs in the door and frame where it latches. Let it dry. No more squeak. YMMV
