maiden voyage in 26bh

We spent the weekend in Monterey, everything went very well. My half ton pulled it nicely. The weather was great, we stayed at Marina Dunes, so for our first time, overall it went great.
There were helpful neighbors, so set up and take down went easily. We really enjoyed the fire pit they had there, nice to sit around in the evening.

We did drop the trailer off at our dealer on the way home, we had made a list for them, which everyone including our salesman said we would have after our first outing. Our service advisor had never heard of this one.. our toilet flushed with hot water, but that was kind of nice on a cold morning, we considered not having it fixed!! Then all the faucets were reversed, hot out of the cold... under the trailer was a leak. grey tank showed full all the time. some other minor things...

thanks to all here on the forum, this has been a great source of info for us.

one question, how do I mouse proof my trailer? the dealer was telling me about a spray they apply to the bottom, anyone know about this?

Jim,

Never heard about spraying the underbelly. I lock & load a couple standard mouse traps with a dab of peanut butter and leave them in the TT when not in use. Works for me

I was told cayenne pepper works. I guess you just sprinkle some around access points. I have not tried it myself so I can't say for sure if it works.

Congrats on your 26BH....never heard of the reverse water deal...interesting.

You will get as many opinions on mice as there are TTs!! Personally I leave all the doors and drawers open and put sticky traps. I learned the hard way they like to bed in dark drawers!!

So were all the faucets really backwards or did they just cross it up at the water heater?

Faucets were in correct spots. Just the kitchen faucets worked right.

update on repairs from dealer

So we dropped the trailer last sunday, yes, service is open on sunday... and we got a call yesterday with update. They checked out the trailer, and told us that yes, the toilet is flushing with hot water, and yes the shower and bath sink have cold water in the hot faucet and viceversa. They have submitted this to Jayco and need to wait 2 -3 days for approval of repairs. They will notify me when Jayco authorizes repairs. The other repairs were done, they fixed the grey tank moniter, and fixed some other minor issues.

The service advisor said that the repair they are waiting on approval for will consist of pulling the toilet and fixing that, and then trying to find where the other plumbing problems happened.

So my question to all you Jayco folks ...is this normal for Jayco? I bought this trailer thinking they made good products right out of the factory. I think they do not have good quality control or this would have been discovered at the factory.

Jim

found both wheels on our 2012 slx 184 were not properly installed at the factory. i believe my mechanic saved us a major accident by discovering this problem while doing the required brake adjustment. even at that overall, we are satisfied with the purchase. we have camped only 5 days so far so time will tell. good luck with your tt, happy camping
