Ha'e 2013, 20-foot, Jayco Swift SLX: The learning curve is challenging for a 1st time owner. Paid for winterization for the 1st year for peace-of-mind. I reside in the Mojave now, but recall frozen and broken water pipes in residential and commercial building in sub-zero climes. MLK day 2006 saw quite a few frozen and broken water pipes in the Las Vegas Valley. Don't want to continue paying for winterization. Think I ha'e most of it figured out, but don't want to leave one point unprotected next November.

New truck shocks and springs tips the trailer tongue upwards for an off-level tow. Am wondering what effect an off-level tow will have on lighting and operation of the propane refrigerator.

Not so proud owner '16 eagle bhds

I'm glad to hear that so many others out their are enjoying their Eagles. Me, not so much. I paid the extra $$$ for jayco, but it has been nothing but a reliability and quality nightmare from the first trip out. I've had 5year old coaches with far better experiences than this thing! The dealer had the unit for nearly a month repairing the issues before I would even take it, and that was on a brand new coach. Then after the first day out, it was back into the shop to fix a laundry list of problems. Then after the second trip another list (some repeats from the first round of repairs) as well as a recall. We haven't been out again since the second trip because we just received the coach back from the last round of repairs. It makes you wonder what is going to come up next?
I feel betrayed by the dealer because of the BS line about jaycos legendary reliability, but more importantly by jayco. I'll spend the extra money, but my expectation is that items last, and have a reasonable amount of initial reliability. One or two items should be expected, but 15, some of which are repeats? Come on! I could have spent 10k less and ended up with similar or better durability/quality, so needless to say this will be my last jayco product. All I can say is buyer beware. Thought I did my research online but obviously it wasn't thorough enough... I couldn't be more disappointed with a new $40k purchase!!!

I have to wonder when the negative reports are often the first post someone makes. I know in the past we have found at least one negative poster didn't even own a Jayco, he was a competitor who only wanted to attack Jayco. Nice to see the majority of posters are happy, as are we, with our Jayco product.
