Jaysmart system

Fellow campers. Does anyone on here have the new Jaysmart system, and if so, do you like it. The old switch panel was simple to use, so I need a little feedback on this before jumping in and ordering. I think the system is by BMPRO. Any help appreciated.

I have it on my 321RSTS. I have only driveway camped in it so far, but I like it. It is Bluetooth Mesh, and essentially an Android tablet. You can connect to WiFi on it and download other apps if you really wanted to. This also allows you to control your rig from your phone without messing with your phone’s WiFi settings.

The only confusing part for me is the 4 preprogrammed buttons at the base of the tablet. They all have a lightbulb icon but one of them actually turns the water pump on/off. So I printed some labels and put them under each button.

SB, do all the functions, such as hot water heater, checking tank levels,etc. have to be controlled by the touch Panel? How about the lights? Are there redundant switches for all these? I understand that the slide outs and awnings have redundant switches. Also that the auto level can still be controlled outside or at the touchpad? I’m trying to develop a comfort level with the system, as we are an elderly couple, and not as technically inclined as the younger generation. We are computer literate as far as computers and iPad , however. Also, do you like the new hydraulic leveling system? Thanks for any info, I certainly appreciate it.

All functions can be controlled by the touch screen or your phone app. There is no mechanical switch panel anymore, so the only redundant switches are the 4 preprogrammed “light” buttons, the slide and awning control buttons, and the simple switch panel in the basement for auto leveling. If you can send messages to your grandkids on your phone then you can operate the system. It will be a short learning curve. Learning how to reboot the system when it goes dormant (from being in storage between trips) is not well documented but simple to do. I would ask that a technician spend time with you showing how to operate it, especially troubleshooting. My Eagle doesn’t have the hydraulic leveling system so I can’t comment on that.

Your generation has seen unimaginable leaps in technology, and I applaud your willingness to adapt and learn all along the way! Good luck, Cajuncamper!!

How do you reboot the system? Came back to my Seismic after 4 days gone and the display screen is off. The buttons at the bottom have power and will turn lights on but the screen is blank

Thank you

Cycle through the slide and awning selections until you see “OF” and then press EXT. This will reset the touch pad

What you're telling us is that there is no manual over-ride for the system?

If your WiFi goes down, you have a dead system?

It doesn’t take WiFi to run or reboot

Then let's suppose your BluTooth is out.. or both.
I can think of a number of things that could knock out local communications.

My question was - Are there no manual option for all the things the system controls?

Slide and awning functions are still able to be controlled directly (hard wire connection) using the row of buttons on the base of the control pad. This includes the 4 preprogrammed buttons for lights and water pump.

There are also lighting control pads located throughout the rig that do not rely on the touchscreen to work, although they are Bluetooth devices.

So the short answer is: if the tablet takes a dump for whatever reason, you are not stranded and can retract all your awnings and slides.

I have the 2020 pinnacle 36KPTS with BMPRO and do not like the setting on Temp. I can only lower it to 60 degrees. I find that very strange sometime before I put antifreeze in system I fun camper at night to keep from freezing and would like to sent temp. to day 45 and can't. I am a little upset about this setting. I called BMPRO and they told me that is what Jayco wanted?????????????????????????????? who's engineered these LOL
