Well, some of it is learning, some of it is PDI. I've had a great experience with mine.

Even a stick built home by a good builder has issues. It happens.

I don't believe at this point it actually went through a PDI.

Yeah, I did watch that video. Mine has the power booster hooked up right, but it looks like the electronics for the signal strength meter is inop.

Dealer called me back to say it is all working properly. I'm not sure how to argue with them other than to maybe send this video to show them how it is actually supposed to work. It also bothers me they don't know how it works.

Is the King Jack like that video a new product?

Hi Foghlght,

I'm not impressed with Jayco's quality control either. Most new RV's these days have issues and you just hope yours aren't too bad. This is the right place place to either fix them yourself, or have the dealer or Jayco fix them if they are major. Eventually you will have a nice working rig! The good news is you will really get to know the mechanical parts of your Jayco!

My King Jack did not come with a signal meter. If yours has one, it would be in the head where you turn the antenna to point. Jayco told me they aren't putting them in anymore. Let me know if yours has one cause I'll be pissed.

Girard water heater - I'm replacing it with a conventional Atwood. We dry camp and wasting gallons of water trying to get hot water isn't an option for me.

The comments above about the bunk DVDs are correct. These only play DVD's or movies stored on a thumb drive in the correct format. There is RCA video and audio in jacks that tv could be piped in. I was considering a wireless transmitter for TV to them.

The rod in the shower is good for wet towels, otherwise its in the way. Mine needed another screw in the end that the pole lifts out from. It kept spinning and the pole would fall, (only one screw in the middle of the thing - duh).

I didn't need an alignment and no drive shaft vibrations, but I did need to raise my rear leveling jacks. They were installed too low.

I've added 400 watts solar, central vacuum, Progressive Industries Surge protector, on-board air compressor and rear air bags (mostly for extra clearance when needed), dimmer on the awning lights, Alcoa wheels, front TV power when driving mod, mount for Davis Instruments Vue weather station.

Next projects: Add a spare tire, replace water heater.

I've had my 2016 Greyhawk out on 4 trips, 2 of them dry camping and aside from the water heater, everything worked great.

Once you get the (hopefully minor) bugs worked out, it's a very nice rig!

- James

Well if you go right to the Greyhawk standards and options page it specifically says "Digital Antenna with signal meter and powered amplifier."

Yep, and I mentioned that to a Jayco rep. His reply was basically "so sorry but we stop putting them on the units". Can you post a pic so I can forward to him?

Thanks!

James

Thanks, I have the brochure too. I meant can you post a pic of the signal meter you have?

Thanks again!

Mine looks like the standard king jack unit without the signal meter in it.

Wish I could take pics. I don't currently have it. Dealer.
