Upstate,
You may want to research those tires. Not a lot of positive feedback on them. Many of us have replaced them with better tires. Maxxis, Goodyear g614, or sailun s637 are the main options. I went with sailun.

Added a couple fantastic ultra breeze vent covers.


Remove old sealant around screws


Put a dab of new sealant before bracket installation. (Added a little extra on top too)


Install cover and you're done

Very easy...took about 10 minutes to do each one.

Realized just how useless the outside stove on our 377 is this morning, while watching my 5'0" tall wife trying to cook. With a cook surface more than 4'4" off the ground, she needed a step stool, just to see the sausage she was trying to cook....

Did you see on the 2017 Northpoint the Goodyears are now an option.

Interesting....my previous rig had tow max tires. In the SOB forum, we had a new post a day about those China bombs. Eventually the manufacturer made Sailun standard tires on the big fifth wheels. Maybe Jayco will follow suit

Mods to 377 RLBH?

Hey everyone! This is my first post... And I wanna say this thread has been incredible for me. you guys are awesome... We ordered a 377rlbh last month and is suppose to be here around July 27th... Already planning a few mods. First is replace the floor vents with ones with dampers, replace faucets, vent covers, add jt strong arms and hopefully figure out a replacement for the furrion head unit in the loving room! However, one thing that I've been thinking about is possibly drilling 2 holes in the divider between the uni con utility center and the storage compartment. I'll be in it for part of the winter and I don't want excess hose outside. So id have one where the hose would go through to the storage then feed it back to the utility center... Does anyone have thoughts on that? Also I see you were talking about tires, when we ordered our 2017 I selected the option for the good years but it's over $2,000 since it comes with rims... I later changed my mind since idc about rims and can just put tires on later. Thanks everyone! Can't wait to be apart of the Jayco family!

Bret,
I would definitely get some better tires. The oem tires are not very good, imho.

Do you have any thoughts on drilling the hose through the utility divider? I want to keep the hose inside... And yeah I plan to get the tires put on after the first year.

Bret - Have you thought about switching the faucet to one like this, so that the hose is easily removable? This way you can remove the hose so that it won't freeze. It's also a lot longer and more durable than the shower hose that comes from the factory. I dumped and flushed my tanks this morning at the campground that I spent the weekend at, and I connected the coiled hose directly to the black tank flush, and it worked perfectly to flush my tank. https://www.amazon.com/Phoenix-PF213.../dp/B002P2YGHE
