2013 Jayco 351RLTS review

Well after living in the unit for the last 4 months here is a list of things that need to addressed.
1. Furnace is short cycling- It will start up run for 3-4 min then shut completely down. It waits approx. 45 seconds then repeats the process all over again. Sometime it takes 6-9 cycles to heat the camper up.
2. When the grey tanks are left open, sewer gas comes up into the unit when exhaust fan is used. Air admittance valves have been replaced and vent to roof checked for blockage- problem goes away if grey tank valves are shut.
3. Water heater will not work on gas
4. Microwave will not shut of on occasion, have to unplug.
5. faucet handle broke

I have been in contact with the selling dealership. I will return the unit in May for needed repairs. Overall we are very satisfied with the unit. We love the floorplan and all the available storage. This is my 5th Jayco Fifth wheel and thus far we are pleased.

Your not going to fix the grey water odor, that's just cause and effect of leaving your dump valves open with a vent fan. Glad to see after full time use the list is very minor.

When you leave your gray tank valve open form a "p" trap with hose and it will stay full of water in that section of hose.
Blocking any sewer fumes from getting into trailer.

All your drains inside have traps and vents already.

I think he is having the issues with the stack vents that are under some of our cabinets on the sink drains. Since they don't run to the roof and with the windows closed it's one of the paths of least resistance for air to come back in. There are only little rubber flappers inside those and supposedly go one way but those fans can draw some air volume.

I would agree with the P-trap on the sewer hose to keep the gasses out of your grey tank. It does help a lot.

That is one thing I don't understand. There is P Traps on the sinks along with stack vents or air admittance valves, also the tanks are vented to the roof. If the tanks are vented what possible function do the Stack vents serve ?

Your air admittance valves (under the sinks) or vents allow for air to enter the pipes so that water can flow down to the tank after the P trap. The vent stacks to the roof allow the air to escape as you fill the tank and as you drain the tank. They each have their own respective duties and do not offset one another.
