New to the Jayco Family

We just purchased a slightly used 2013 Eagle Premier 351 MKTS . Are there any issues with this model I should fix before our camping season starts? We had a 2006 Challenger 34TBH FW, we bought new, prior to this Jayco. Size and weight are the same. I'm just looking for any common problems that might need attention. We are looking forward to using this FW. Thank you in advance

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new-2-u Eagle.

(Noticed your city, Oconomowoc. Had to Google it. Didn't think it was real. Until now I thought 'Kalamazoo' was strange. )

Congrats on the nearly new Eagle and welcome to JOF. Don't know of any problems and not sure which slide mechs are used on that one but, unless you hear a ratcheting sound when the slide is fully closed or opened, keep the switch pressed for a few seconds for the mech to calibrate itself. Seeing as we're several weeks away from camping, read up on schwintek slides. If never had a problem with mine but I open and close fully with the additional 2 second switch activation every time.

OldmanAZ, you know you're a local when you can pronounce Oconomowoc.

... and you know you are (or were) a Kalamazoo local when you know what the name means.

My mailing address is Oconomowoc. We actually live in Okauchee Wi.
Try learning those towns as a young kid .
I have seen some posts about the slides, I'll have to do more homework.
Thank You.

OldmanAZ
Okay you have my interest up.
So what does Kalamazoo mean?

Welcome, We have the 351RLTS. Routine maintenance is about all I can recommend. The wheels bearings may need to be inspected and repacked depending on how much the previous owner used it.
Check the age and condition of tires.
Inspect the roof for any areas that need re-caulking.
Check out and get familiar with all the systems.

Flush out all tanks and sanitize the fresh water tanks.
