Jayco Eagle

Proud owner of a Eagle 324 BHDS travel trailor, new to the forum but a "camping pro". I've had everything...Class C, Class A, 5th Wheel and now the Eagle. Hoping to help other Eagle owners that need help in here.

Phil

Unhappy

As far as the Eagle goes, had a little trouble "un-wintering" the water heater until I figured out it had 3 valves....the top one and bottom should be open and the middle one closed for the hottest water. The middle one can be opened slighty to cool the water down a bit. And as far as setting it up I got myself a 1/2 inch cordless drill for those jacks. Love the electric awning except when it rains the water drips the entire length of the awning. I tried anchoring down one end of it but that didnt work.

I do have a question...anyone else have AC drip water going to the front instead of the back?..Ive tried jacking up the front some but it still wants to drip upfront.

I've got a 324BHDS too! We love ours and can't wait to take it camping. We usually just get away for weekends, but we do love the longer stays too!

I have a new 2010 324 BHDS and while I like the unit I am not that impressed with some of the workmanship. The battery wiring is poorly done and not weather proof so I re-did it. The junction box under the front between the A frame members fell off because the screws were over tightened & the heads snapped off. The TV swivel bracket screws were overtighten and pulled the threaded brackets in the tv apart. I had to take the TV apart to fix the brackets. The pump mounting brackets had one of the screws tightened down right through the rubber mount. My impression is that a lot of the installation is rushed. Plumbing and electrical lines in general were just run any old way without thought as to a how things fit together. I have very loud pump sound & water hammer in the lines which is contributed to by the way the lines have been run through the various cabinet panels. This I am going to fix with some pipe insulation spacers, a new quieter pump and ac***ulator. These are small things but they are all over the trailer and spoil what is a pretty good unit. I opened a cabinet yesterday and found an electric line running through a hole that had been drilled so fast and roughly there were 11/2" splinters Around the hole waiting to drive themselves into someones hand. This is just careless by workmen but should have been picked up in quality control.
This is a bit of a rant but there are a lot of things I need to fix on a brand new unit. I could take it back under warranty but then that is such a hassle unless the dealer is right close by so I will just get on and fix them. I just find it so annoying when good materials and components are just thrown together.
