Calling all 141 J owners

My wife and I have a 2010 141 j. Great pup. Love everything about it, well almost, the weight it tough when pushing round the garage.

Any other 141J owners out there?

Interesting that you went from a 2007 1007 (which we have) to another, but larger PUP.....like many, after 4 seasons with a 10' PUP, we're learning the disadvantages and are planning our next camper. We're toying with hybrids and larger PUPs. How has it worked for you? Any regrets on not going with a hybrid?

No regrets at all. Plenty of space in the 141. It also fits in the third stall of my garage. Stays dry, no cost, can keep an eye on it. Plus the exercise putting it up and dropping it is good. Also a little closer to the outdoors

Considered a hybrid. Not for us. They're nice, just not for us.

Jayco

I think I got a really good deal. The tent material and everything is practically brand new. It has been and still garaged kept which makes a huge difference in South East Texas.

Have you had any issues with bringing your pop up up?

I have a 2011 Jayco 141J, it seems there are not many of us. I see lots of people with Jayco non-HW PUP's but not many of these...What years were these made?


I have the power lift and lots of options on mine - it's been great so far! The only issue I've had is that there was a 30 Amp blade fuse on the battery and it kept melting the fuse holder. I just upgraded to a self resetting 30amp circuit breaker, so we'll see if that fixes the issue.


I saw the other thread on the lack of an antenna for the radio - Mine does not have one either, so I'll be looking to add one. I'm hoping I can just stick it inside the cabinet near the radio and get good enough reception. I'm not ready to drill holes yet...

FYI, Rubbermaid 18 gallon totes fit GREAT inside the front area on the floor in front of the L-shape couch and in the doorway once popped down. I can fit about 6-8 of them pretty easy. It has really helped us pack/unpack.

What do you do with your travel door?? The manual says there is a hinge under the rear bunk, but mine does not have that. Do I just leave it mounted? That does work, it just gets in the way of getting in the storage bin and I'm not sure about leaving it exposed to the elements if my awning isn't setup.

I've got a 141J as well...

I've been looking for a roof mounted bike rack to go into the T- rails that are installed from the factory. What are using for a bike rack that I see in your pictures?

We love our 141J. Already had to replace the factory radio. The LED's went out and you couldn't read the display. If it happens to anyone else, just search Amazon for it. You can get it for about $35 and just have to use the detachable faceplate to get it working again.

I am missing a switch somewhere, after my last trip, my brand new battery had charge but when I open it up today I had no power. I made sure to that the two switches by the door and water pump switch were off before closing from last trip.

Was your fridge left on battery? I've also found that if you do not disconnect the battery it will run down just from the radio staying on. ALSO, my radio has an alarm that I didn't realize was turned on. It kept turning the radio on (volume was at 0) and running the battery down.


Still love my 141J!

Love our Big Betty

Good tips, all...thanks! We've had our 141j for 18 months and even took it on a cross-country trip...love her! Someone mentioned battery issues...we replaced our single RV battery with two golf cart batteries and haven't had an issue since. Love being "close" to nature, but with the convenience of a shower and toilet...and the roominess. Added AC (AZ, after all) and renamed her "Brrrr Betty." Has anyone had those plastic locking clips that hold up the bathroom walls break? What did you do? Apparently Jayco no longer has these and can't seem to come up a suitable alternative.
