It's Here, It's Here :) new 28BHBE

Picked up our new 2015 Jay Flight 28BHBE yesterday. The guy that did our PDI was rather useless and I feel like he was in training because every question I had he needed to ask someone else. we got the E4 hitch and P3 break controller and and added Tiberens to the Tundra and it towed it home nicely. We live in a cul-de-sac and turning it around (thanks to the stupid teenage next door not being willing to move his car in the street in front of my house) was a challenge for us as noobs but we managed to get it in our driveway. Found the incline of our driveway made it a challenge to get level but its not being stored here we just brought it home to get it all set up. the E4 is very tight and we had major trouble getting the ball to come loose from the truck. Any tips on that? Do we need to grease the ball and what kind of grease then should I use? Camper is beautiful and my kids are wired for sound they are so excited. First trip out is planned for Easter. Looking forward to getting to know our new camper. Now I really need someone to buy our PUP lol. Not having much luck on craigslist.

Maybe you can answer a question, During the PDI we found the outside speakers don't work. Tried to figure it out with no luck so we were told take it out find all the little things that need fixed and bring it in when we can give them a few days to work on it. So we have noticed the TV also doesn't play through the speakers indie which do work. Am I correct in assuming I should be able to hear the TV through the main trailer speakers?

I think your problem with the Ball is because you are on an angle. I have the same problem as do others. What I do is I stand on the rear bumper of the truck so that it sits a bit lower then reach over and try to raise the Tongue using the motor. It may involve some bouncing up and down..but the ball does release a little easier. I don't have this problem when level.

Congrats on the new TT. We also live in a culdasac and have the same issue with people parking their vehicles in the street. It definitely can be a challenge. We will sometimes remove the bars on the equalizer hitch so we can make a little tighter turn.

Enjoy your new toy.

Normally no, you need to buy a cord to connect TV audio out to the radio/dvd player. As to the outside speakers there should be a button on the radio that would control them seperately from the inside speakers.

Also did you get the unit at COLERAIN?

If you went thru all the selections on the stereo, I believe A (living area) , B (bedroom), and C (outside), and they still dont work, then there coukd be a problem. I would try taising the volume a bit also, as I noticed mine have to be put up a bit outside versus same number inside.

I also had a problem figuring out how to get TV sound to ceiling speakers, but then figured it out by accident. If I remember correctly, the stereo needs to be on also, and may have to push another button. If I get a minute later, I will run out and play around with it and let you know. It would also give me a reason to go hang out in there!

Yes that button cuts in and out. There is a issue with the wiring somewhere and the tech could not find it. Not a big deal since I don't see myself using the outside speakers a lot but when we bring it back in we will get it fixed.

First of all - gorgeous trailer! Very nice. I love the aluminum wheels and the black trim is also really sharp. Yes, you should grease the ball lightly with some general purpose grease, as well as the friction spots on the hitch head itself (where your bars go in) and NOT on the tongue brackets!

The TV sound has always played through my trailer speakers, although I do remember having to play around with it a bit before I found the right setting. Usually there is a speaker setting A B and C, the latter being outside speakers if I recall correctly.

As stated before, usually a good idea to remove your weight bars from the hitch when doing tight maneuvering and backing up driveways. What weight bars did you get? 1200lb?
