First trip in our 377RLBH

Just, got back from a quick weekend with our new 377. Brought home Thursday afternoon and left Friday night. Pulling with 2015 Ford F350 4wd & airbags

First impressions:
1. Pulls very good. Not much different than my 34'
2. Storage under nose is tricky. I have 2-6' tables. They do not fit laying down or standing up. I had to angle them in and unload everything to get them out.
3.Hard to read words on masterpanel.
4. Sofa and theater seats are real comfy
5. Needs a porch light over door
6. More storage in kitchen than I expected. Need to be good at drawer storage to use it better.
7. Lights inside storage are great.
8. Powercord reel is a must for 50amp cord.
9. Auto level works good, although blocks were needs at the rear.

Although my dealer was wonderful at getting it ready we still had some challenges.
Trailer had a ding in the freezer door, they replaced it. Ice maker would not vend ice, took apart controls and checked connections. Fixed! Door catch for mirror door in nose broke off in transport. Shade did not stay down in bedroom. After playing with it got it to finally catch, no touching that shade. The finger holes in pocket doors come out. Need to add some glue. Kitchen faucet leaked on counter and floor while in driving. The handle appeared to bounce up.

I noticed some people talking about mods to there trailers. After 2 days i have a mods list
Mods needed:
1. Light switches in bunk room are hard to find and my little one can't reach them. Moving them just inside of room on the right.
2. Need more storage in bunk room. Changes coming soon.
3. Need light in the front nose compartment.
4. Need a small light on master panel.
5. Add surge suppressor
6. Need shelf under sink for appliances.
7. Holder for sink covers. Any ideas?
8. Add power to center console in between seats, for cell phone charging, wife's idea.
9. Move the morryde reel. Love it, but it messes up the whole side. Has anyone moved it to a better location?
10. Building shelves for my tables to fit under all the other items in side storage.

Will add pictures as I more forward with the mods. Will be using it the next 4 weeks.

My tables are 4' and I put small shelf supports in the front compartment. The four foot table makes a shelf (fits perfectly), the second one sits on top of that, other needed goodies sit on top of that table and the whole bottom is wide open for lots of other items.

Almost everyone knows that the sink faucet opens while traveling.

Congrats on the new 377! I moved the bunk light switch and the cord reel. Cord reel is easy, just remove 4 screws and relocate to desired location. Look under a thread called "mods to 377rlbh" and you'll see how I added the bunk light switch.

Redbird7,

Congrates on your new 377.

We took a label maker and added our own labels to each switch, etc. on the master panel to address the difficulty in reading the words.

Our Eagle Premier also didn't have a light by the entrance door.
I got a Tri-Lynx Solar Powered 6 LED Light and mounted it above the door.
Here's what we got on Amazon.com
It has 3 setting, Off, On, & Motion Detector. Works good. When camping I keep it on the motion detector setting.

Hope this helps to give you some ideas.

Enjoy you new Jayco and safe travels.

We just purchased a 377RLBH and cannot wait to get out and camp with it. It is a great floor plan and that is what really made us go with it. Plus the options to money we felt was a great deal.

Redbird - You said that your res. frig. had a door dig on the freezer door side. Must be something happening during the transport process and not getting the door lock all the way or correctly. We have the exact same dig and they had to order the new door to get it fixed.

Wonder how many others have had the same problem.

Yes, it happened during transport to dealer. They changed it out no problem. Just make sure your water and ice work after. Mine had a looae wire and had to take it apart on first day to fix. Ice would not dispense. I think the latches are opening in tranport. I have notice mine being half way unlocked twice while driving it. Need a better latch.

I added a new set of switches in the bunk room. Well worth it. Dont have to slide out room to turn on/off lights. It is easy to do for a beginner.
