"took on a life of its own" is a complete understatement! My list is as long as my... well, it's really long!

I keep a notebook in the trailer, one in my bag, and I think I have one on my phone somewhere.

One thing I started doing that I'll recommend (not model specific) is to start a journal. For every trip, from the time I commit to the reservation to the time I pull it back to storage, I jot down everything: meal plans, grocery lists, chores or mods I need to complete, maintenance items, trip details like mileage, elapsed time, fuel usage, transmission temps, notes about the towing experience and setup etc... the site number, notes about the campground, the staff, the clientele, the utilities, the amenities... I also take a few pictures of my Jayco and the CG or other notables, and I post it all up here on the forum. One of the biggest benefits of this forum is learning from others' experiences, and I believe all CG experiences should be shared here so we can all learn.

I agree on keeping a journal. I started keeping a journal in 1984 when I bought my 2nd trailer and still keep it on our 6th trailer. It's great to look back over the last 30 years at all of camping experiences, my kids first trips, family who camped with us etc.

Camper Bob, if that's a suggestion, I'm going to adopt it. I do some of those things but in a scattered way, submitting park reviews, logging my mileage and nights camping. But a journal would keep it all in one place. I like the other ideas I don't now do. Thanks.

Absolutely a suggestion, for everyone. What better place to get info on a CG or place to camp than from our friends here?

Stereo

I have a new 2014 22FB with the Jensen stereo. The unit won't read CDs or DVDs. Dealer is working with Jayco to replace the unit. Only had the trailer a month. Also didn't get a remote for this stereo. Service guy told me he wasn't sure it came with one. Sounds like bs to me. Anyone get a remote?

I am sure the remote is somewhere. I found mine (IRV)in a cupboard although I do not use it so I wasn't looking for it. What do you mean they are working with Jayco?????
If it doesn't work they have to fix it under warranty whether it is replaced or repaired

My remote was lost somewhere in transit or at the shop. My PDI Tech went and grabbed one from somewhere, probably had a drawer full of them previously lost.

It seems to me that if a dealer wants to get paid for warranty work, they need to talk to Jayco before they do it. It's probably just a matter of paperwork, but either way, the dealer still needs to "work with Jayco" to get the warranty work done and processed correctly. No need to get panties wadded up at this point... if they tell you they won't do it, then it's time to get a little more "firm".
