Post New 2014 321RLTS

OOps! 321RLTS Eagle Premier!
Picked it up on Friday! All went smooth but what a Job since! How can a Camper be about 2ft longer than the old one and have less storage space? That is our problem now. Overhead storage tapers at both ends over the couch and chairs. And the stuff I had in compartments over the chairs in my old Designer now are taking up 8 overhead compartments in this one. We really like the new Camper but, we have to get rid of some "STUFF"! Not even as much room in the so called "walk in closset"! What a joke that is.
O.K. this so far sounds like we don't like the new Camper. But actually we do it is just a night mare finding where to put stuff that fit fine in the old one! I guess in time we will get it sorted out. We live in it now so things have to be figured out soon. With the old one we were only "Seasonal Camping"! So we had a lot more time to figure out where to put stuff! I guess we just have to be patient
I guess I am just blowing off steam. Been going to bed really tired at night. Lots of stress. I have a bad case of CRS too. So I can't find anything that I put away!
Biggest thing really is they said the 2014 models had LED lighting, but ours still had Halogen lights instead. Guess they are useing up what they had from 2013 and we got ours ordered to soon! Othere than that it seems to be a great unit. Hope it is as good as the old Designer. In the last 10 years the only problem we had with it was broken awning sprigs!
O.K. Rant over! Sorry it is so long I do tend to get windy!

Do you know which LED's Jayco is using? I haven't found any that put out enough light in the ceiling lights vs the halogens.

Don't know on the LED's, as I said we have Halogens. Looks like later models will get the LED lights when they exhaust the supply of Halogens!

I am worried now that ours will come without some of the 2014 model updates.

Don't know, They may have used the last of the Hlogen lights by now! We also don't have the lighted switches, and don't seem to have teh water filter! I do have one attached to the hose though so no biggie there!
At least so far everything seems to work as designed, we are pretty happy with that>
Good luck on yours!

Judgerr-
I have a 2012 321 RLTS and mine has the water filter system. It is located behind the utility panel, there is an access panel on the front side of utility panel about a foot inside the compartment held in place by 4 screws. Let me know if I can be an assistance.

Thanks for your help! I called dealer yesterday and was told that's where it was. They sure mount it stupid! Mine is sitting right on top of the water pump. I mean resting on it! Don't know if I will even be able to unscrew it to change the filter?? Was yours the same way? I'[m thinking it may be necessary to remove the whole, big panel to remove filter brkt. then change filter and reinstall!
Thanks again! judgerr

My filter was mounted under the sink. It was bypassed and a whole house filter re-located to the storage compartment for ease of access. Over a year and it has worked out well.

My 2012 had the filter located in the same place, however it did not interfere with the pump. I took the filter out and replaced it with an accumulator tank. I now use a whole house filter outside of the camper on the water hose. I also added a drinking water filter under the sink with it's own spigot on the counter top next to the sink.

I have a filter on the outside hose as well. So I am double filtered. Guess I will see what I have todo when it's time to change the filter in the compartment!

Thanks!
