We are camping for 10 days in ours. So far so good. A/c units are quiet, awning LED strip is way too bright, outside fridge is handy, probably won’t use the slide out grill, L-shaped dinette is great but the table is heavy and always has to be stored. The orbital hitch makes it back up like a bumper pull. I’m getting used to the mor-ryde rubber hitch - is smooth but has a little give I wasn’t used to in previous unit.

Love ours overall! Back recliners are a pain with the passenger side slide; we've already had the chair (correctly latched in!) catch the trim on the slide and rip it mostly off... Also concerned with the 15K whisper quiet AC in the main cabin- it couldn't keep up last week in Missouri with outside temps ranging from 90-93; inside got up to around 80 degrees by 2pm and didn't subside until after 6pm when the sun hid behind the trees. Outdoor refer doesn't get very cold and doesn't have invertor like my last camper so you can't stock it with beer before traveling, unless you like hot beer that is. It also seems to trigger the GFCI in the kitchen; dealer says they've had 3 similar complaints and are investigating with Jayco. Seems to mainly happen when switching power sources (home to truck, truck to campsite). Anyone else seeing similar concerns?

Yes. One AC won't handle 95 plus deg if you are in direct sunlight. When temps go over 100F both AC will manage but will run almost all day. When over 105 temps inside with start to rise over 80.

Sounds like it might be under kitchen sink?
It is probably 'hidden' somewhere. Ours was under the bathroom behind the rear wall of the pass through storage compartment.

Yes, the water pump is noisy. Jayco does not install as instructed by mfg, ie, they connect the PEX lines directly to the pump. When the pump vibrates it shakes those plastic lines and they vibrate against everything they touch. I did two things. I got some of the foam water line insulation (grey foam 'tubes') and slipped it over the PEX lines wherever they touched anything. I also installed some flexible hose between the pump and the rest of the PEX plumbing. This part was not a hard job, but, not that easy either. After both of those the water pump is barely noticable, even when in the bathroom.

Had both going- next time we'll put a fan on the floor blowing from the bedroom toward the living room to see if it helps.

Pull your vents and tape the space with aluminum tape for ducting. You will see the area isn't sealed well at all. Lots of your cold air is going into the ceiling, not your living area.


After doing this, I can get 73-74 degrees in the sun in 98 degree outside, humid South Carolina with one AC running. With 2, i can get to 68 and both units cycle in the heat of the day.

Great- question though- the whisper quiet doesn't have big dump vents, it has four of the small saucer size vents at each corner of the room- are you saying to pop these little fella's out? Doesn't seem like much room to work with. Look forward to you feedback and thanks again!

Yup, pop them out. You will find a plastic collar that is supposed to seal things. However, it does not as usually the holes are not cut straight.


I take the aluminum ducting tape, and seal the gap. I then remove the collar from the vent and reattach. You should notice an increase in air flow.


Also, at the 2 return vents for the whisper quite, open those up and seal them, too. I had large gaps there as well. That meant the unit was sucking in hot ceiling air to then have to cool.

Sounds great- I'll give it a try.
