Jayco Multifunctional Remote?

Looking at the new Jayflight 2016 Elite package it states that it comes with a multifunction remote but it doesn't really say what exactly it does. Does anyone have one of these and if so what does it do? Just wondering if it is actually useful.

I have the remote with my 2015 Eagle. I really like it. I can move the slide in or out while watching the inside/outside for obstructions. I like to use the remote for the stabilizers, where I can place boards right under the pads as the extend down.

it is a worthwhile option for me.

x2 ...before I picked up ours I thought it was just a "whistle and bell" feature. however I find it very functual, would be hard to go without now that we are use to it.

Thanks for the info guys! It sounds like it is more useful than just a new bell or whistle. I wonder why they don't advertise this feature more? It seems like it is really hard to even find any information on it.

I'm told you can use it to raise/lower the landing jacks from inside the truck if a slight adjustment is needed on the king pin. Haven't actually used it this way myself but I'm going to give that a try next time out.

What they all said. Thought it was fluff till I got used to using it. Lives Velcro'd to the dash to adjust height, turn on porch light returning after dark. I love being able to watch the slide as it comes out. 4th weekend I was too close to a tree branch and repositioned before the slide hit the branch, had i been inside I would have heard "crunch" and gone out to find I was 18" too close.

multifunctional remote

Sounds like a great option, but is there a user manual online or printed? Ours is brand new and is asking for a pin number. Thanks

Welcome to the JOF.

Which RV do you have and what device etc. would you like to control with the multifunction remote?
