Tom: Comgratulations on your purchase of a 29D. I visited the Jayco plant in May and "drooled" at the sight of the 29D. A very nice motorhome. Returned home and secured a trade-in value on my 2010 Precept. Dealer wanted $24,000.00 difference and way to much depreciation loss. So I have decided to keep my unit and continue to enjoy it. I "heard" an unconfirmed statement that the 2012 has more exterior storage than the 2011. The limited exterior storage was a concern to me. Enjoy your motorhome. You made an excellent choice in the 29D.

I got my 29D last year and love it. It has been pretty flawless.

Perhaps you can post some pictures of the inside... I'd love to see what it looks like.

How do you get to the TV?

Just got home from picking up our Melbourne 29D. Anyone know how to access the Jensen TV in the cabover entertainment center? It appears the panel holding it in is screwed in and the wooden caps hiding the screws appear to be glued in.

I want to get to the HDMI jack so we can view photographns on the big TV. No problems w/ the little one in the bedroom; it swivels out.

I'm also a newbie with motorhomes; we have upgraded from a fifth wheel towhauler. The question is about a spare tire. No spare came with the 29D but there is room underneath behing the rear axel. Should I get one put in?

On ours, an '08 29D, there is a long hex wrench type tool that unscrews the television from the bracket from the bottom of the bracket behind the television. Then, one lifts the television vertically for a few inches to slide it off the bracket. This is the process done to move the television from inside to outside the coach. With the television still on the bracket, it is awfully hard to get my fat fingers in to all the wiring plug-ins for surround sound, HDMI, etc. Hope this helps.

To remove the Jensen TV you must first pull the small cosmetic wood plugs out (They are not glued), then take the 4 wood screws out that holds the wood frame. After removing the frame you will see how easy it is to attend to wires etc....PS: I suggest at the same time to move the 2 way cable splitter to the outside (drill a small 1" hole in top right Receiver cupboard is perfect). You can then run HDMI cables;etc without having to re-enter the cabover area again.....Be careful when working with the wood screws that hold everything together as they are screwed straight into soft wood... I did a complete TV re-splitting after this and now can have any signal directed to the other TV's without any problems.
Best of luck.
