Angry My new Jayco and adventure

Tonight we cooked our first meal...

1. 2 small pork chops, entire 5iver filled with smoke, fast. I head to bathroom to turn on vent...vent yes, fan no. In fact there are no ceiling vent fans at all...can others confirm this for Eagle HT?

2. We eat stove top worked great.

3. Time to clean up, 2 plates, forks, glasses. Water turned on and then backs up in sink. All stop and drain gray tank...sink still has water in it? I pull P trap, OK clear...where/why? Can I run a chaser down it? How do I find out where gray tank is located ref the itch sink?

Stove vent FIXED. Outside vent flap JAMMED into enclosure. There is no way a worker could have installed this and not checked it for operations.

The more time we spend in this the more I see a lack of quality control.

The vent flap locks closed to keep critters out. You have to open it before you use it each time.

Did your smoke alarm go off? We do have a fan in our bathroom vent and also on the stove vent. Never had a problem with either of them over the last four seasons of camping. If everything isn't working as you want, I see the you have a new FW, get the dealer to fix it.

If you unclip it, it will open fairly easily. You seem to have a number of issues with your new Jayco.. Perhaps you should visit your dealer and have them review the operation of everything. In all my years I have never seen or heard of anyone having to use a screw driver and lots of leverage to open the vent. Yes, some that don't realize there are two small clips that turn to release it and they try to pry it open will go so far as to break it, but, normally once they try to pry it they see the small clips.

Wish you better luck, you purchased a good rig.

Issues are to be expected in anything. This is our 3rd RV. Our first a 45ft motor coach I sold back to the dealer after spend on average 1 week per month for a year in the shop for warranty work. Name an item we had problems.

Our second was issue near free. Our truck camper which we have owned for 7 years almost problem free in spite of using it almost every weekend. WHY?

The lack of a nationwide dealers network forces a company to do QC at the manuf level rather than depend upon dealers. The old business model in the manuf sector was...throw it together and let the owners and dealership sort it out.

In the old days you bought a new car, it came with a 100% warranty...as long as it was on their lot, you drive past the curbs it was your problem.

Now toss in the did not buy it here...My nearest dealer an hour away van get to my sink stop up in Aug...maybe or Sept.

Confirmed. However, I knew that when I bought it. That's why I installed two more on my own.

You may want to check out the smoke detector also if it didn't come on.
