Trout man, were any of you vents pre wired for a fan?

Norty, yes the smoke worked and worked well.


Lest anyone think I am a unhappy camper or would never buy aJ again they are wrong. Far from it. I would buy again and wholly recommend without hesitation.

What bothered me was the issues that arose should have been identified at Jayco or the dealer not by me while on a trip. To compound, things like the kitchen sink may not be fixed till this fall and we have a lot of travel...

Yes. One in the bedroom and one in the living room. Not only were they pre-wired (the wires were in the vicinity from the ceiling fixtures) but they were pre-framed. I called (or emailed) Jayco, gave them my VIN, told them I needed the ceiling schematic because I needed to add vents. They sent me the frame drawings showing the exact locations of the framing. I installed a Maxxair fan in one and a FanTastic fan in the other.
Speaking of kitchen sinks. I didn't care for the small double bowl sink so I replaced it with one large single bowl sink that was the same overall size as the original one, so no modification to the existing cut-out was necessary. Got it on Amazon (I think) for around $100.

Got it, I will get hold of Jayco and see if it applies to my VIN/unit.

Good idea on the sink, will ask wife on that.

LOL you should see the one I got her for the kitchen remodel: 36" wide, 10" deep, one bowl, almost a bath tub...LOL. Got it on sale, Stainless Steel, $398 IIRC, was $600 (which I would have NEVER given)

The dealer should have filled the grey tanks and the black tank to check for leaks so they should have seen the stopped up drain.

Grump, you would think so....that said we called our local Jayco dealer and talked with the Sr Svc tech and informed him of our problem and he said THIS:

"(LOL) that happens a lot, bring it in and we will fix it under warranty, but not unusual"

Glad I don't use your dealer. It never should have left the lot.

I fully expected our dealer to tell us no and hell no, you have used it and you must have stopped up the sink yourself, we don't do plumbing. But he laughed it off and said it was nothing rare for a new rig to have the sink plugged up....
