Introduction

Congratulations! On your Jayco recreation vehicle purchase. We are excited to welcome you to our growing RV family. We are committed to being the most respected name in RVs. Jayco recreation vehicles are manufactured for use as temporary living quarters for recreation, camping and travel uses, all as defined by the bylaws of the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA). This recreation vehicle is not intended for use as a full-time residence or for commercial use. Commercial use means using the recreation vehicle as a business asset such as a mobile office or using the recreation vehicle for lease or rental purposes.

Jayco reserves the right to discontinue or change specifications or design at any time without notice and without incurring any obligation whatsoever. Recreation vehicles built for sale in Canada may differ to conform to Canadian Codes. We invite you to drop by our Visitors Center located in Middlebury, Indiana. To book a factory tour or check on available tour times, log on to https://www.jayco.com and click on the ABOUT heading. Select “Visit Us” from the drop-down for factory tour information.

Options and Equipment

Jayco recreation vehicles are available in several sizes and models, so accessories and components may differ slightly between models. Some equipment described in this manual may not apply to your recreation vehicle. Jayco reserves the right to discontinue or change specifications or design at any time without notice, and to make additions or improvements without incurring any obligations upon itself to install these changes on its products previously manufactured. Recreation vehicles built for sale in Canada may differ to conform to Canadian Codes.

Dealer Responsibility

Dealers who are authorized to sell Jayco motor homes are also there to provide customer service after the sale. We work closely with them in an effort to keep you satisfied.

At the time of the sale of the new motor home, your dealer is expected to explain or provide the following:

  • Provide orientation of the motor home, its systems, components, and their operation (including a test drive). Request that you read all motorized warranty information and explain any provision not clearly understood.
  • Complete and return the Warranty Registration and Customer Delivery form and the chassis manufacturer Chassis Manufacturer’s Delayed Warranty Start form to activate the applicable warranty coverage (mileage and date of purchase must be included on both forms). Retain copies of these forms in the motor home for any required warranty coverage as needed at home or while traveling.
  • Ensure that you receive a complete Owner’s Portfolio and review the individual manufacturer’s limited warranty provisions with you. The dealer can assist in completing these forms and in locating any required component model or serial numbers.

The Limited Warranty is activated only after Jayco receives a signed and dated “Warranty Registration and Customer Delivery Form” from your dealer.

Customer Relations

Jayco has empowered its dealers to make warranty and repair decisions. If a special circumstance occurs that requires information from Jayco, we have asked your dealer’s service management to make the contact on your behalf. This is why you should always talk to your dealer’s service management first.

Please provide the following information when contacting us for assistance:

  • Customer name and current location.
  • Phone number where you can be reached.
  • 17-digit chassis Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or 9-digit Serial.
  • The current vehicle mileage.
  • Your date of purchase.
  • If applicable, the component description, serial number, and model number.
  • A detailed description of the concern.
  • The name of your selling dealer.
    • If different from above, the contact information for the RV repair facility you are contacting Jayco to discuss.
An important note about alterations and warranties

Installations or alterations to the original equipment vehicle as distributed by Jayco are not covered by the Jayco Limited Warranty. The special body company, assembler, equipment installer or up fitter is solely responsible for warranties on the body or equipment and any alterations (or any effect of the alterations) to any of the parts, components, systems, or assemblies installed by Jayco. Jayco is not responsible for the safety or quality of design features, materials, or workmanship of any alterations by such suppliers.

About This Manual

This manual is a guide to the operation of the features, equipment, and controls in your recreation vehicle. If you find components vary significantly from what is described, please contact your dealer to ensure you have the correct information. Nothing in this manual creates any warranty, either expressed or implied nor does it cover every possible detail of equipment, standard, or option, installed on or in your recreation vehicle. Information, illustrations, and specifications in this manual reflect the most current available at the time of publication approval, are subject to change, and are not intended to indicate actual size. This Owner’s Manual and Warranty Packet are to be considered permanent components of the vehicle. Keep them in your recreation vehicle at all times for personal reference. If the recreation vehicle is sold, it should remain with the vehicle for the next owner.

Warranty Packet

The Warranty Packet contains this component manufacturer-supplied manuals or information sheets, warranty cards, and/or registrations. Consult this information for questions regarding operating, maintenance, servicing instructions, and warranty coverage. It is important you complete and mail warranty cards and registrations within the prescribed time limits to avoid loss of warranty coverage.

Chassis Guide

Throughout this manual, frequent reference is made to the vehicle’s Chassis Guide. The Chassis Guide includes the owner’s manual provided by the manufacturer of the chassis on which this motor home is built, warranty cards, and/or registrations. It also includes pertinent information regarding the transmission, tires, etc. Consult the Chassis Guide for operating safety, maintenance, servicing instructions, and warranty coverage.

Customer Responsibility

It is important you read and understand all instructions and precautions before operating the recreation vehicle. Even if you are an experienced River we encourage you to thoroughly read this Owner’s Manual, as well as the information contained in your Warranty Packet and Chassis Guide.
As technology advances, new improvements enter the RV industry every day, and each RV manufacturer has its own unique manufacturing process.
Familiarize yourself with the Limited Warranty applicable to your recreation vehicle. There are components that are excluded or warranted separately by their individual manufacturer’s limited warranty (refer to the Warranty Packet or Chassis Guide). As the new owner of the recreation vehicle, you are responsible for regular and proper maintenance performed in accordance with this manual and the OEM manuals. Regular and proper maintenance will help prevent conditions arising from neglect that are not covered by the limited warranty. It is your responsibility and obligation to return your vehicle to your dealer for repairs and service.

  • Obtaining Service At Our Customer

    Should your recreation vehicle be in need of service, and your dealer recommends that the repairs be made at our Customer Service facility, your recreation vehicle may be returned to us with the following guidelines:

    • You or your dealer must make a confirmed appointment 60 days prior to dropping off the recreation vehicle at our Customer Service facility.
    • The holding tanks must be emptied and rinsed. We have a dumping station avail-able for customer use.
    • The propane system (if so equipped) and all electrical systems must be shut down and turned off. We are not responsible for discharged batteries or propane tanks.
    • During the appropriate season, please ensure the RV has been winterized.
    • Unless prior approval has been obtained from our Customer Service facility, all personal items must be removed from the area where you are requesting service repair and the refrigerator emptied. We are not responsible for loss of food items.
    • All transportation costs are the responsibility of the owner. You may need to arrange for alternative accommodations for some types of repairs. Please be pre-pared accordingly.

    Our Customer Service facility occasionally utilizes local independent repair facilities. Your vehicle may be referred to or repaired by one of these local repair facilities.

    Obtaining Service For Separately Warranted Items

    Your selling dealer is responsible for servicing your recreation vehicle before delivery, and has an interest in your continued satisfaction. We recommend your dealer perform all inspection, warranty, and maintenance services. Some dealers may be authorized service centers for those OEMs whose products are warranted separately and excluded from the Limited Warranty.

    Parts and Accessories

    Contact your authorized dealer for assistance in obtaining replacement parts or accessories. We do not sell directly to retail or non-authorized dealers. If the original part is no longer available, we will make every effort to provide an appropriate substitute.

    Aftermarket Accessories

    Warning
    Do not add any type of rack or frame to any motor home chassis or chassis part. The alteration to the length and/or weight distribution may result in unstable handling, be a safety hazard, or could damage the motor home components.

    Installation of aftermarket accessory(s) may affect the Limited Warranty applicable to your recreation vehicle, damage your RV, and/or cause a failure. Your RV manufacturer accepts no responsibility for the results of work performed by unauthorized technicians. If you wish to make changes, consult an authorized dealer or your RV manufacturer before contacting other resources. They may be able to refer you to a specialist for assistance.

    2023 Jayco Motorized Limited Warranty

    THIS LIMITED WARRANTY COVERS:

    • The Motor home when it is used only for its intended purpose of recreational travel and camping;
    • Only the first retail purchaser;
    • Only those portions of the Motor home not excluded under the section “What is Not Covered”;
    • The Motor home only when sold by an authorized dealership; and,
    • Only defects in workmanship performed and/or materials used to assemble those portions of the Motor home are not excluded under the section “What is Not Covered”.
    • This Limited Warranty is not transferable.

    When you request and accept the performance of warranty repairs under the terms of this Limited Warranty, you are accepting all terms of this Limited Warranty, including by way of example, warranty limitations, and disclaimers, the forum selection clause, and the clause reducing the time period when a suit must be filed for breach.

    LIMITATION AND DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES:

    THE DURATION OF ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY IS LIMITED TO:

    • THE DURATION OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY;
    • THE SCOPE OF COVERAGE THIS LIMITED WARRANTY PROVIDES;
    • DEFECTS EXISTING AT THE TIME OF SALE THAT MANIFESTED THEMSELVES AND SURFACED DURING THE IMPLIED WARRANTY COVERAGE PERIOD; AND
    • DEFECTS DISCOVERED AND REPORTED WITHIN THE DURATION OF THE IMPLIED WARRANTY. THERE ARE NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES OR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ON THOSE PORTIONS OF THE MOTOR HOME EXCLUDED FROM COVERAGE.

    NOTWITHSTANDING THE ABOVE PROVISIONS, JAYCO EXPRESSLY DIS-CLAIMS AND EXCLUDES ANY AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, WHEN THE MOTOR HOME IS USED FOR COMMERICAL, RENTAL, OR BUSINESS USE OR WHEN THE MOTOR HOME IS TITLED OR REGISTERED IN A BUSINESS NAME OR WHEN THE JAYCO IS SOLD IN CANADA.

    There is no warranty of any nature made by Jayco beyond that contained in this Limited Warranty. No person has the authority to enlarge, amend or modify this Limited Warranty. The dealer is NOT Jayco’s agent. Jayco is not responsible for any undertaking, representation, or warranty made by any dealer or others beyond those expressly set forth within this Limited Warranty. Some states and provinces do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

    DISCLAIMER OF CONSEQUENTIAL AND INCIDENTAL DAMAGES:
    THE FIRST RETAIL BUYER AND ANY SUBSEQUENT OWNER, ALONG WITH ANY PERSON WHO IS AN INTENDED OR UNINTENDED USER OR BENEFICIARY OF THE MOTOR HOME, ARE NOT ENTITLED TO RECOVER ANY CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES CAUSED BY A DEFECT IN THE MOTOR HOME. BY WAY OF EXAMPLE, CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCLUDE FUEL AND TRANSPORTATION EXPENSES TO DELIVER THE MO-TOR HOME TO A SERVICING DEALER, HOTEL ROOMS, LOST WAGES, AND MOISTURE DAMAGE SUCH AS MOLD AND MILDEW AS WELL AS RUST AND CORROSION. THE EXCLUSION OF CONSEQUENTIAL AND INCIDENTAL DAMAGES ARE NOT DEPENDENT UPON WARRANTY REMEDIES SUCCESSFULLY CURING ANY DEFECT; THE EXCLUSION OF CONSEQUENTIAL AND INCIDENTAL DAMAGES SHALL SURVIVE ANY FAILURE OF THE LIMITED WARRANTY REMEDIES FULFILLING THEIR PURPOSE.
    Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of consequential or incidental damages, so the above exclusions may not apply to you.

  • Jayco Embark 2023 COVERAGE TIME User Manual

  • https://autouserguide.com/embark/jayco-embark-2023-coverage-time-user-manual/
  • COVERAGE TIME

    The duration of this limited warranty is 2 years after the first retail owner takes delivery of the Motor home from an authorized dealer OR 24,000 miles of use, whichever occurs first. If the dealer places the Motor home in service before the retail sale, the coverage period is 2 years after the dealer first placed the Motor home in service OR 24,000 miles of use, whichever occurs first.

    ANY ACTION FOR BREACH OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY OR FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY MUST BE COMMENCED NO MORE THAN 26 MONTHS AFTER THE BREACH.

    The term of this limited warranty is 3 years for substantial defects to any “Structure Components”. Structure Components means materials and/or workmanship directly attributable to Jayco relating to the lamination of the fiberglass sidewall assembly, the lamination of the rear wall assembly, the lamination of the fiberglass front wall (wrap) assembly, sidewall/end wall/front and rear wall frame assembly (wood and aluminum), roof frame assembly (wood and aluminum), and floor frame assembly (wood and aluminum). Structure Components specifically exclude front and rear fiberglass caps and any other cosmetic fiberglass attachments, sidewall metal (unless the root cause is the wall structure); exterior roof material (EPDM rubber, TPO, etc.); floor covering (carpet, linoleum, hardwood tile, etc.); all side-wall, end wall, front and rear wall, roof and floor attachments, and delamination caused by water intrusion from lack of required exterior seal maintenance or other maintenance. Structure Components further excludes all items identified under “What is Not Covered” below.

    Jayco reserves the right to have new or remanufactured parts of similar quality used to complete any work and to make parts and design changes from time to time without notice to anyone. Jayco reserves the right to make changes in the design or material of its products without incurring any obligation to incorporate such changes in any product previously manufactured. Jayco makes no warranty as to the future performance of the Motor home, and this limited warranty is not intended to extend to the future performance of the Motor home, or any of its materials, components, or parts. In addition, the Motor homeowner’s obligation to notify Jayco, or one of its independent, authorized dealers, of a claimed defect does not modify any obligation placed on the Motor homeowner to contact Jayco directly when attempting to pursue remedies under state or federal law. If the Motor home is not of the current or prior model year when the first retail owner takes delivery, the limited warranty, including but not limited to the limited warranty for substantial defects to Structure Components, ends 90 days after the first retail owner takes delivery of the Motor home OR after the odometer reaches 5,000 miles, whichever occurs first.

    ANY ACTION FOR BREACH OF THIS REDUCED LIMITED WARRANTY OR FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY MUST BE COMMENCED NO MORE THAN 15 MONTHS AFTER THE BREACH.

    Unless prohibited by state or provincial law, repairs do not extend the time when you must commence an action for breach of warranty and shall not extend the warranty coverage period. This reduction in time may not apply to you because some states and provinces do not allow the reduction of the time to commence an action for breach of warranty. Any performance of repairs after the warranty coverage ends and any performance of repairs to those portions of your Motor home excluded from coverage are “goodwill” repairs, whether or not Jayco was aware of any such coverage lapse or warranty exclusion at the time of repairs. Such “goodwill” repairs do not alter the express terms of this limited warranty or extend the warranty coverage periods or the limitation period in this paragraph. Jayco is not required to notify you if authorized repairs are considered “goodwill” by Jayco. You should expect the need for warranty repairs. Jayco may use new and/or remanufactured parts and/or components to complete a repair. It is likely that warranty repairs were performed at the factory during assembly OR at the selling dealership after delivery of the Motor home to your selling dealer. If you discover a defect or damage to the Motor home when you take delivery of your Motor home, you MUST notify your dealer OR Jayco within 10 days of the date of purchase to have the defect or damage repaired at no cost to you. Minor adjustments will be performed, free of charge, by the dealer within 90 days of your purchase; thereafter, such adjustments are your exclusive responsibility as normal maintenance.

    REPAIR REMEDY:
    Jayco’s obligation is to repair any covered defect discovered within the warranty coverage period provided:

    1. You notify Jayco or an authorized dealer within 10 days of your discovery of a defect; AND
    2. You deliver the Motor home to Jayco OR an authorized dealership at your cost and expense.

    BACK-UP REMEDY:
    If the primary repair remedy fails to successfully cure any defect after a reasonable number of repair attempts, your sole and exclusive remedy shall be to have Jayco pay an independent service shop of your choice to perform repairs to the defect OR have Jayco pay diminished value damages if the defect is incurable. You must exhaust both the repair remedy and the backup remedy AND these remedies must fail to fulfill their essential purpose before you can seek any other remedies.

    THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS NOT A WARRANTY THAT PROMISES OR EXTENDS TO FUTURE PERFORMANCE BECAUSE IT DOES NOT MAKE A REPRESENTATION OF HOW YOUR MOTOR HOME WILL PERFORM IN THE FUTURE BUT REPRESENTS ONLY WHAT THE REMEDY WILL BE IF A DEFECT EXISTS.

    HOW TO GET SERVICE

    To obtain warranty service the owner must:

    • Notify Jayco or an authorized Jayco dealer, within the applicable warranty coverage period designated above, that you are making a warranty claim;
    • Provide the notification mentioned in (1), above, within ten (10) days of the discovery of a defect in material or workmanship; and,
    • Promptly schedule an appointment with and take the Motor home to Jayco or an independent, authorized dealer.

    If you need assistance, you may contact JAYCO, INC. at 903 South Main Street, P. O. Box 460, Middlebury, Indiana 46540, Attn: Customer Service, (800) 283-8267.

These items are usually detected and corrected at the factory or by the selling dealer prior to delivery to the retail customer. You must inspect your RV for this type of damage when you take delivery. If you find any such defect or damage you must notify the selling dealer at time of delivery to have these items covered by this limited warranty and to have work performed on the items at no cost to you as provided by this limited warranty.
    EVENTS DISCHARGING JAYCO FROM OBLIGATION UNDER WARRANTY

    Certain things completely discharge Jayco from any obligation under this warranty and void it.

    Warning
    Do not check the pressure, test or practice using the fire extinguisher by squeezing the trigger, even briefly. The fire extinguisher is not rechargeable or refillable. Once used, it will gradually lose pressure and will not be fully charged for use in an emergency.

    Danger
    Do not turn the electrical power back on or plug in any appliances after the use of a fire extinguisher. Please refer to the fire extinguisher’s user manual for further instructions on maintenance and cleanup.

    Smoke Alarm

    Your recreation vehicle is equipped with a smoke alarm that is listed for use in recreation vehicles. The smoke alarm will only work if it is operational and maintained. Refer to the manufacturer’s user guide for detailed safety and operating information. Smoke Alarms have a limited life and will wear out over time. Immediately replace the detector if it is not working properly, if it displays any type of problem, or within five years of use. Though the alarm horn in this detector meets or exceeds current UL standards, it may not be heard for reasons that include (but are not limited to): a closed or partially closed door, and other noise from electronics, appliances, or traffic.

    Warning

    • This smoke alarm will not alert hearing-impaired residents. Special alarms with flashing strobe lights are recommended for the hearing impaired
    • Smoke Alarms cannot work without power. Battery-operated units can-not work if the batteries are missing, disconnected or dead, if the wrong type of batteries is used, or if the batteries are not installed correctly.
    • Only use the replacement battery recommended by the smoke detector manufacturer. The smoke detector alarm may not operate properly with other batteries. Never use a rechargeable battery as it may not provide a constant charge. Never disconnect the battery to silence the alarm.
    • Smoke Alarms cannot detect fires if the smoke does not reach the Alarms. Anything preventing smoke from reaching the alarm may delay or prevent an alarm.
    • Test the smoke alarm operation after the vehicle has been in storage, before each trip, and at least once per week during use. Do not disconnect the battery or the alarm.
    • Smoke Alarms are not foolproof and cannot prevent or extinguish fires.

  • Combination Carbon Monoxide

    Your recreation vehicle is equipped with a combination carbon monoxide (CO) / propane alarm that is listed for use in recreation vehicles. The combination carbon monoxide/pro-pane alarm will only work if it is operational and maintained. Refer to the manufacturer’s user guide for detailed safety and operating information.

    Warning

    • Do not cover or obstruct the carbon monoxide/propane alarm with anything that could prevent gas from entering the alarm.
    • This alarm is not designed to detect smoke, fire, or gases other than carbon monoxide and propane.
    • The carbon monoxide detector installed is intended for use in ordinary indoor locations of recreation vehicles. It is not designed to comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) commercial or industrial standards.
    • Do not disconnect the battery or the alarm.
    • Individuals with medical problems may consider using warning devices that provide audible and visual signals for carbon monoxide concentrations under 30 PPM.
    • This alarm will only indicate the presence of carbon monoxide gas at the sensor. Carbon monoxide gas may be present in other areas.
    • The ultimate responsibility for protection against toxic carbon monoxide fumes rests solely on you. Installing a carbon monoxide/propane alarm is just the first step in protecting your family from toxic carbon monoxide poisoning. The following symptoms are related to carbon monoxide poisoning and should be discussed with all members of the household:
    • Mild exposure: Slight headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue (often described as “flu-like” symptoms).
    • Medium exposure: Severe throbbing headaches, drowsiness, confusion, and fast heart rate.
    • Extreme exposure: Unconsciousness, convulsions, cardio-respiratory failure, death.

    The alarm is directly wired to the 12-volt electrical system, with continuous power being supplied by the recreational vehicle batteries. There is no 9-volt battery power supply. As a result, the alarm is always drawing a small amount of current from the recreation vehicle batteries. Although the current draw is slight, it could drain the batteries during extended storage periods. This condition is not likely to occur except during storage situations when the inverter cannot restore the battery charge. If the battery cable is disconnected at the battery terminals, the combination alarm will not work.Jayco Alante 2023 Secondary Means of Escape User Manual 04

    Carbon monoxide (CO) is an insidious poison. It is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas. Many cases of reported carbon monoxide poisoning indicate while victims are aware they are not well, they become so disoriented they are unable to save themselves by either exiting the recreational vehicle or calling for assistance. Young children and household pets may be the first affected. Your combination carbon monoxide/propane alarm is designed to detect the toxic carbon monoxide fumes that result from incomplete combustion, such as those emitted from appliances, furnaces, fireplaces, and auto exhaust.

    This alarm is designed to sense the presence of carbon monoxide/propane gas, however, there are other combustible fumes or vapors that may be detected by the sensor including (but not limited to): acetone, alcohol, butane, and gasoline. These chemicals can be found in commonly used items such as deodorants, colognes, perfumes, adhesives, lacquer, kerosene, glues, wine, liquor, most cleaning agents, and the propellants of aerosol cans. High temperatures can activate glue and adhesive vapors. If you close up a recreational vehicle on a hot day, the chemicals used in its construction may be detected for months after the vehicle was constructed (for more information, refer to Sec. 2, Formaldehyde).

    Warning

    • Actuation of this detector indicates the presence of carbon monoxide which can kill you.
    • Never turn the 12-volt battery disconnect control to the off position and disconnect the battery cable to silence an alarm. The alarm will automatically sense when the level of carbon monoxide in the air reaches below dangerous levels. You should stay outside the vehicle in fresh air until the alarm is silenced. When the alarm sounds, do not stand too close to the alarm. The sound produced by the alarm is loud (85db) because it is designed to wake a person in an emergency. Prolonged exposure to the alarm at a close distance may be harmful to your hearing.
    If the CO alarm sounds with a 4-chirp pattern:
    1. Immediately move to fresh air—outdoors or by an open door or window. Do a head count to check that all persons are accounted for. Do not re-enter the premises, or move away from the open door or window until the emergency services responder has arrived, the premises have been aired out, and your CO Alarm remains in its normal condition.
    2. Call your emergency services, fire department, or 911.
    3. After following steps 1-2, if the CO Alarm reactivates within a 24-hour period, repeat steps 1-2 and call a qualified appliance technician to investigate for sources of CO from fuel-burning equipment and appliances, and inspect for proper operation of this equipment. If problems are identified during this inspection have the equipment serviced immediately. Note any combustion equipment not inspected by the technician, and consult the manufacturers’ instructions, or contact the manufacturers directly, for more information about CO safety and this equipment. Make sure that motor vehicles are not, and have not, been operating in an attached garage or adjacent to the residence.

    If the Propane alarm sounds with constant beeps:

    1. Immediately evacuate the from the RV.
    2. Shut off propane gas supply at propane tanks or supply.
    3. Do not touch any electrical switch in or near the RV
    4. Do not start the vehicle’s engine.
    5. Contact a qualified RV or gas technician for repairs.
    6. Do not turn on the gas supply unit the leak has been repaired.

  • Formaldehyde

    Some components in the recreation vehicle contain formaldehyde-based adhesives that may release formaldehyde fumes into the air for an unknown period of time. Individuals who are allergic to formaldehyde gas fumes may experience irritation to the eyes, ears, nose, and throat. Indoor air quality may also be affected by leaving your vehicle closed for a period of time. To aid in dissipation, ventilate the recreation vehicle by opening all windows and circulate the air with a fan. This label is located inside the vehicle near the entry door. The label should be left permanently affixed to the recreation vehicle.Jayco Alante 2023 Formaldehyde User Manual 1

    Extended Or Full-Time Usage

    Your new recreation vehicle has been built for enjoyment in a recreational manner. It is not intended for use as full-time quarters or a permanent residence. Continuous living in your vehicle could cause accelerated wear and damage to the various components.

    Caution
    Continuous or permanent living in your recreation vehicle may affect your warranty coverage and may void the “Limited Warranty” applicable to your vehicle.

    Cold Weather Usage

    When used in freezing or below-freezing temperatures, the precautions should be taken:

    • Fresh water and drainage systems – preparations to avoid freeze-ups.
    • Propane gas (if so equipped) and sufficient power is needed for protection from possible freeze-ups on the propane gas regulator. Keep in mind that more frequent furnace operation will substantially increase battery draw and propane gas use.
    • During cool weather usage, ventilation or the addition of a dehumidifier may be required to reduce condensation.
    • Check outside extrusions on compartment doors, locks, slide-outs, windows, vents, etc., for frozen moisture before operating to avoid damage to parts.
    Condensation

    Condensation is a natural phenomenon. The amount of condensation will vary with climate conditions, particularly relative humidity. Condensation occurs because there is water vapor present in the air. When the temperature reaches the “dew point” the water vapor in the air condenses and changes to a liquid form.
    Proper ventilation or the use of a dehumidifier (customer supplied) will assist in controlling the condensation.

    Suggestions to eliminate warm moist air:

    • Crack open windows and roof vents to allow warm moist air to escape.
    • Open the bath roof vent (if so equipped) approximately ½” when showering.
    • Use the range hood fan (if so equipped) when cooking or washing dishes.
    • Avoid hanging wet towels (or clothes) inside the recreation vehicle to dry.
    • If found in cabinets or closets, open the doors slightly to provide ventilation.

    Warning
    Condensation may cause dampness, mildew, mold, and staining and, if allowed to continue, it may result in damage to the recreation vehicle (damage caused by condensation is not warrantable). It can also lead to mold or mildew issues, which could be a health hazard.

    Vehicle Labels

    Decals and data plates used throughout the motor home aid in its safe and efficient operation; others give service instructions. Read all decals, data, and instruction plates before operating your recreation vehicle. Any decal, data, or instruction plate painted over, damaged, or removed should be replaced. Keep a record of the 17-digit chassis vehicle identification number (VIN), the 9-digit serial number, and your license number in the event theft or vandalism requires you to supply this information to the authorities.

    Warning
    The factory-installed weight labels are specific to the recreation vehicle for which they are supplied and are not interchangeable. Do not remove these labels from your vehicle. If labels are missing contact your dealer or Customer Service for replacements.

    • Do not exceed any applicable motor home weight ratings. Doing so could damage your motor home or affect handling and braking characteristics.

    Loading Your Motor Home

    Warning

    • Never load the motor home in excess of the GVWR or the GAWR for either axle. Overloading your motor home may result in adverse handling characteristics and damage to the chassis.
    • DO NOT EXCEED YOUR GVWR! This means you should weigh your vehicle as loaded for your normal travel to determine the actual weight. If you exceed the GVWR, you MUST remove items from the motor home, or drain liquids, then re-weigh the vehicle to ensure you have achieved a safe weight.
    • The actual weight of the vehicle, passengers, all options, liquids, the hitch weight of your towed vehicle, and your personal cargo is important for you to know so you do not exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of the motor home. The volume of space available for storage may exceed the amount of available cargo capacity. Large storage compartments have been designed to accommodate normal camping items, which are bulky, but not necessarily heavy.

    Store and secure all loose items inside the motor home before traveling. Overlooked items can become dangerous projectiles during a sudden stop.
    Distribute cargo side-to-side so the weight on each tire does not exceed one-half of the GAWR for the either axle. Make sure any tie-down straps (if so equipped) on appliances or furniture are secure. Load heavy objects on the floor, or as low as possible.

    Warning

    • Your recreation vehicle’s load capacity is designated by weight, not by volume, so you cannot necessarily use all available space when loading the vehicle. Do not exceed your GVWR and ensure you are loading the vehicle as evenly as you can for the best possible handling. Ensure heavy items are secured so they do not shift during travel.
    • Store items in areas designated for storage. Do not store anything in the areas reserved for the converter, electrical panels, furnace or water heater, etc.
    • For traveling safety, it is important to make sure the tie-down straps are secured on all appliances such as the toaster, coffee maker, etc. Vibration during travel will move the appliances, creating the potential for them to fall out of their cabinets possibly causing injury.
    Trailer Plug

    If you choose to tow behind your RV, a chassis manufacturer-supplied trailer plug (located at the hitch) is pre-wired into your motor home. Before hitching up to a trailer, please read Using the Rear Hitch, vehicle weight ratings, etc. Your motor home will have a 7-way trailer receptacle. The wiring to operate your towed vehicle brakes must be the same size in both the towed vehicle and the motor home.Jayco Alante 2023 Loading Your Motor Home User Manual01Jayco Alante 2023 Loading Your Motor Home User Manual01

    The connector plug may build up corrosion with extended use. It should be cleaned periodically to insure good electrical contact. Make sure the connector plug is kept clean and protected from road elements as you travel.

  • https://autouserguide.com/embark/jayco-embark-2023-weighing-your-motor-home-user-manual/
  • Weighing Your Motor Home

    When your motor home is loaded you should have it weighed. The actual weight of the motor home, passengers, all options, liquids, the hitch weight of your towed vehicle and your personal cargo is important for you to know so you do not exceed the GVWR. There are two important factors when loading your motor home, total weight and balance. It is imperative that you verify compliance within all applicable weight ratings. Overloading your motor home will void the Limited Warranty and the warranties of many component part manufacturers. Periodically weigh your motor home at a public scale to determine proper load distribution. To obtain the side-to-side weights, there needs to be enough space on either side of the scale to accommodate the motor home being partially off the scale.

    Different types or scales may require different procedures when weighing the motor home. The motor home must remain as level as possible on the scale (even if an axle is not physically on the scale). To obtain the side-to-side weights, make sure there is enough space on either side of the scale to accommodate the motor home being partially off the scale. If a boat, trailer or other vehicle is being towed, it should be weighed separately. Combine this weight with the motor home’s Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) to ensure the total combined weight does not exceed the GCWR. Once actual weights are obtained, compare them to the Weight Information Label weight ratings to ensure you are below the posted minimum ratings. If there is a difference in the weights on one side of the vehicle as compared to weights on the other side, components (tires, wheels, brakes, springs, etc.) on the heavier side may be overloaded, although the total axle load is within the GAWR.

    Caution
    It is important to redistribute the load to avoid component failure as well as to improve the handling characteristics of the vehicle.

    Warning
    Dump the gray and black water holding tanks before traveling to avoid carrying unnecessary weight. Full tanks can affect your fuel consumption, and de-pending on tank location can affect your vehicle handling characteristics. If you cannot immediately empty your holding tanks, reduce your vehicle speed until you reach a dumping station.

    Vehicle Operation

    Your motor home will travel safely and comfortably at highway speed limits. However, it will take longer than a passenger automobile to reach that speed. Allow more time to go around the vehicle you are passing. Avoid situations that might require sudden momentum changes as the length of the motor home affects your ability to quickly cut back into traffic. Swerves and sharp turns, especially at high speeds, could result in loss of control of the motor home.
    The motor home has a longer turning radius. When turning, check the road clearance and be aware of others, especially if towing a vehicle behind your motor home.
    Adverse weather conditions and extremes in terrain may affect the performance and handling of your vehicle. Do not operate the cruise control on icy or extremely wet roads, gravel roads, winding roads, heavy traffic, or any other traffic situation where a constant speed cannot be maintained. Use care when accelerating or decelerating on a slippery surface. Abrupt speed changes can cause skidding and loss of control.

    NOTE:
    CALIFORNIA TIRE CHAIN NOTICE: YOUR MOTOR HOME MAY NOT BE OPERATED WITH TIRE CHAINS

    Braking and Stopping

    Even though your motor home is equipped with brakes designed for its Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) we suggest you practice stopping away from traffic until you become accustomed to your motor home’s stopping distance. Your motor home is equipped with a third brake light that activates when the brakes are engaged.
    When descending a long hill, shift the transmission into a lower gear and engage the auxiliary engine braking. If your motor home is equipped with an auxiliary engine brake, engagement is activated by a switch on the driver’s console. See the chassis owner’s manual for additional information. The transmission and engine will help in controlling downhill speed and can lengthen brake life. The distance required to stop the motor home is greater than automobiles. Driving through water deep enough to wet the brakes may affect the stopping distance or cause the vehicle to pull to one side. Check the motor home’s brake operation in a safe area to be sure they have not been affected. Never operate any vehicle if a difference in braking efficiency is noticeable.

    Warning
    Your motor home chassis braking system is rated for operation at GVWR, not GCWR.

    Parking Brake
    The parking brake should be engaged when the motor home is parked. Never drive your motor home with the parking brake engaged as this will reduce braking effectiveness and cause excessive driveline wear. Refer to your Chassis guide for more information on the parking brake.

  • Towing Behind Your Motor Home

    Caution
    Do not install a frame equalizing type hitch on your motor home.

    Towing will affect vehicle handling, durability, and fuel economy. Exceeding any of the listed weight ratings will result in unacceptable overall vehicle performance. Your safety and satisfaction require the proper use of the correct equipment.
    For maximum pulling load and vertical tongue weight, refer to the label located on the rear hitch. A hitch bar of appropriate strength and steel should be selected to meet the capacities of the towing receptor.
    Always use safety chains between the motor home and the towed trailer or vehicle. Cross the chains under the tongue and allow for slack when turning corners. Connect the safety chains to the vehicle frame or hook retainers. Never attach the safety chains to the bumper.
    Before descending a steep or long grade when towing a trailer or vehicle, reduce speed and shift the motor home into a lower gear to control vehicle speed. Avoid frequent or prolonged brake applications, which can cause overheating or brake failure. By definition, the GCWR is “the maximum total weight rating allowed for a vehicle and any attachment, such as a trailer or towed vehicle. To determine the total allowable weight for a towed item, subtract the GVWR from the GCWR.Jayco Eagle Travel Trailers 2023 Towing Behind Your Motor Home User Manual 01

    Towing and Braking Label

    Warning
    The total weight of your motor home and any trailer or vehicle towed by it must not exceed the GCWR. Do not assume that you can tow a vehicle that happens to be within the capacity of the hitch. By doing so, you may exceed the total GCWR of the motor home.

    • The total weight of your motor home (including cargo, passengers, fluids, etc.) in addition to the vertical (tongue) weight must not exceed the GVWR and/or any GAWR. Once again, do not assume that you can tow a trailer or vehicle that happens to be within the vertical (tongue) weight capacity of the hitch. By doing so, you may exceed the GVWR and/or GAWR of the motor home.
    • Your motor home chassis braking system is rated for operation at GVWR, NOT GCWR. Any trailer or vehicle being towed by your motor home must have adequate brakes as required by all state (or province) and local regulations for towing with your motor home, including areas you may be traveling through. Failure to follow the towing guidelines may result in property damage or injury. In addition, a separate supplemental braking system must be installed if the towed trailer or vehicle meets or exceeds the minimum weight determined by the chassis manufacturer (this minimum weight rating will vary by chassis and chassis manufacturer). Contact your dealer for assistance in determining whether a separate braking system is recommended for your towing and traveling safety. Failure to follow these instructions will create a safety hazard and may result in an accident.

    Maintenance
    Keep the hitch clean along with your general frame maintenance. At the beginning of the season, and monthly or thereafter, clean the inside of the receiver tube with a wire brush and spray with a silicone spray. Always remove the utility mount from the receiver when it is not in use. This will help prevent the utility mount from rusting to the tube. Periodically check the bolts for tightness. They need to be torqued to the proper setting (refer to your Chassis Guide). Refer to the chassis manual for detail on hitch specifications and towing guidelines.

    Safe Haul System

    Your motor home is equipped with a factory-installed “Safe Haul” system. This is a supplemental braking system used when a vehicle is being towed behind the motor home. The motor home’s air supply is utilized to operate brakes on both the towed vehicle and the motor home providing proportional braking between the coach and the tow vehicle. This will reduce the motor home braking distance and prevent a runaway vehicle should it become disconnected from the coach. Brakes are only applied to the tow vehicle when the brakes on the motor home are applied. An air hose coupling (in the vicinity of the electrical harness connection) located at the rear of the motorhome supplies the air pressure to the tow vehicle controller.

    NOTE:
    A professional installer should be used to hook up the tow vehicle kit.

    • A separate (customer-purchased) kit must be installed on the tow vehicle.
    • The kit should include a breakaway switch and switch cable (attached from the tow vehicle to the motor home) in case the tow vehicle detaches from the motor home.
    • The kit should operate the tow vehicle brake pedal via air pressure when the motor home air brakes are applied, and should include an air hose that is connected from the tow vehicle to a coupler on the rear of the motorhome.
    • An LED brake light switch may be included that mounts to the windshield of the tow vehicle and lights when the brakes are applied. This brake light is viewable through the backup camera.

    Electric Trailer Brake Wiring

    Your motor home will include electric trailer brake wiring to the 7-way trailer connector at the rear of the RV for electric brakes. The customer must supply and install an electric trailer brake controller in the dash area to make use of the electric trailer brake system.

    Step Well Cover

    Electric-powered step well cover
    The step well cover can be extended or retracted using the “step cover” switch located on the passenger side console. The cover gives the passenger a flat “floor” to rest their feet on.

    Warning
    Make sure there are no obstructions when operating the step well cover. To avoid personal injury, do not operate the step well cover when standing in the step well. Do not hold the switch for longer than it takes to extend or retract the cover. Doing so may result in damage to the motor home.

    Entrance Step

    Your motor home is equipped with an electric entrance step. To operate, locate the “Step” control located on the passenger side console (the 12-volt battery disconnect switch must be ON). If the step encounters an immovable object, such as a curb, while being deployed, it will stop and shut down in that position. It will retract normally when the door is closed.

    Warning
    LOOK BEFORE ENTERING OR EXITING YOUR MOTOR HOME!

    • When opening the door from the outside, make sure you are not obstructing the path of the entrance step. Step deployment takes approximately two seconds. Keep hands and fingers clear while extending or retracting.
    • Look before you exit. Make sure the steps are fully deployed before exiting the motor home. Stepping on a partially extended step can cause damage to the step frame.
    • Turning the ignition switch to the “ON” position while the vehicle is parked will cause the step to retract. Visually confirm the step is fully extended prior to exiting the vehicle.

    Step With Control Unit
    Normal Operation/Automatic Mode

    • Close the door. The step should retract and lock in the ‘up’ position (under step light is not on).
    • Open the door. The step should extend and lock in the ‘down’ position with the under step light illuminated.

    NOTE:
    In the event the entrance door is left open, the light will turn ‘off’ after 5 minutes.

    Step Lock Function/Stationary Extended Mode

    • Your step is equipped with an override switch, turn it to the ‘ON’ position. The step should remain extended with the under-step light ‘off’ when the door is closed.
    • With the step override switch turned ‘ON’, the step extended, and the entrance door closed, turn the vehicle ignition on. The ignition override system will go into effect and the step will automatically retract.

    Turn the vehicle ignition off and open the door. The step will extend and lock in the down position. This is the ‘auto extend’ feature. When the vehicle ignition is turned on, the step will always activate with the door movement, regardless of the step switch position. Refer to the manufacturer’s owner guide included in your warranty packet for detailed operating and safety instructions.

  • Seat Belts

    Warning
    Seat belts should always be worn by anyone who drives or rides in this vehicle.

    • Never use one seat belt for more than one occupant. Never carry more people in the motor home than there are seat belts.
    •  Only seats equipped with seat belts are to be occupied while the vehicle is in motion. While traveling, do not occupy beds or any seats that do not have seat belts.
    • Be sure to lock all doors before driving. Locking the doors and using the provided seat belts will minimize the risk of injury or ejection in an accident.
    • If you are pregnant, consult your health care professional for advice on seat belt use.

    Always use seat belts.
    In an accident, injury to the driver and passengers may be reduced if seat belts are properly used. If your motor home is equipped with a booth dinette, hide-a-bed sofa, or easy bed sofa they will have two-point lap-seat belts installed. Seat belts should be used in all seating positions.

    Maintenance and inspection of seat belts
    The webbing used in seat belts may be cleaned with a mild soap or detergent solution. Allow the belts to dry in the shade and do not allow them to retract until fully dry.
    Regularly check the seat belt buckles and release mechanisms for positive action and check automatic locking retractors for positive engagement.
    If the seat belt webbing shows obvious cuts, protruding broken fibers or severe fading which indicates weakening by exposure to sunlight, the entire seat belt assembly should be re-placed. Do not try to bleach or re-dye the belts. The resulting color may rub off and the webbing strength could be affected.

    Child Safety Restraint Systems

    When transporting infants or small children, an appropriate child safety restraint system should always be used.

    NOTE:
    All child safety restraint systems should always face the front or rear of the motor home. They should never be installed so the occupant is facing the side of the motor home.

     NOTE:
    Children too large for a child safety seat (per government specifications) should always wear a seat belt.

    Danger

    • Never allow a passenger to hold a child on their lap while the motor home is moving. The use of safety seats for children are required when trans-porting a child in your motor home. All child age and weight guidelines as specified by law should be strictly adhered to.
    • Rear facing child seats or infant carriers, or child booster seats should never be placed in the front seats of the motor home.

    Failure to follow these guidelines can result in serious injury or death.

    Warning
    Improper installation or failure to properly secure a child restraint may result in failure of the restraint.

    • Follow the child restraint manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint. Be aware of all warnings and safety information included with any infant or child safety restraint system.
    • Never place a front or rear facing child restraint in the front seat of a vehicle. A deploying passenger front air bag can cause death or serious injury to a child 12 years or younger, including a child in a child restraint. A child restraint should only be installed in a rear seat. To ensure proper safety belt fit, always use booster seats for children who are size and age-appropriate. Refer to the governmental safety regulations for child sizing charts.

    Failure to follow these guidelines can result in serious injury or death.

    Booth Dinette (if equipped)

    Warning
    The dinette table should be lowered and secured with the safety strap when-ever adding a child safety seat to the dinette seat.
    Failure to follow these guidelines can result in serious injury or death.

    If your child requires a child safety restraint system (seat), it can be installed in the forward or rear facing booth dinette according to the instructions of the safety seat manufacturer. The seat must be secured with the dinette seat tether strap.Jayco Eagle Travel Trailers 2023 Seat Belts User Manual 01

    Climate Control System (Dash)Jayco Embark 2023 Xite 360° Camera System User Manual 05

    Your motor home has been equipped with an integrated heating / air conditioning system. It provides windshield defrost, heating and cooling for the front seat occupants only, and is not capable of heating and cooling the entire motor home. Refer to the manufacturer’s manual for detailed operating instructions and tips.

    System Layout

    The heater/air conditioner unit is located beneath the dash in the center or right side of the vehicle (viewed from driver seat). In most modes of opera-tion the unit draws in fresh air from the outside and heats or cools it before discharging the treated air into the vehicle. Only in the MAX A/C mode does the system draw air from inside the vehicle.

    Operating Features

    The air conditioning system operates in all modes except VENT, FLOOR, and OFF. This provides significant moisture, dust and pollen removal for enhanced passenger comfort.

    NOTE: When outside ambient temperatures are below approximately 40° F, the A/C compressor may cycle rapidly. Use FRESH AIR mode instead of A/C in these temperature conditions to cool the interior air temperature. For operational safety in the event of the loss of vacuum, the HVAC system is designed to discharge air through the defrost vents to provide continuous windshield defogging.

    Blower Motor

    The blower motor switch (left side or top) has (4) positions, OFF (0), slow to fast (1-4).

    Temperature Control

    The center switch controls heating and cooling. Maximum cooling is all the way to the blue side of the switch, and maximum heat all the way to the red side.

  • Leveling System

    Failure to act in accordance with the following warnings may result in property damage, serious personal injury or death!
    The leveling system is designed only for leveling the unit and should never be used to provide service for any reason under the motor home such as changing tires or servicing the system. It is not recommended that you change a tire yourself. Ensure all jack locations are clear of debris, obstructions or depressions. Keep people clear of the motor home prior to turning the leveling system ON and while the leveling system is in operation. After starting the leveling cycle it is important that occupants do not move around in the motor home until the vehicle is level. Failure to re-main still during the leveling cycle can affect the leveling jack system sensors. Never lift the motor home wheels off the ground when leveling the motor home.

    • Do not move the motor home while the jacks are still in contact with the ground or extended. Damage to the vehicle could occur.
    • Do not rely solely upon warning lights to determine the position of the leveling jacks. It is the operator’s responsibility to check that all the leveling jacks are fully raised in the travel mode before moving the motor home. Failure to operate the vehicle without sufficient air pressure may cause damage or personal injury. Failure to power off the electrical system power and release air pressure may cause damage or personal injury. The Leveling System is a controlled air management system that automatically levels an RV equipped with an air bag suspension. Vehicle and step height can be adjusted after leveling. For detailed operating and safety information, refer to the manufacturer’s user guide.

    Leveling System

    Key features of the stationary leveling system include:

    • The system has both an AUTO and a MANUAL mode allowing four-point manual control of all leveling actuators.
    • A slope indicator warns when terrain is too steep for leveling.
    • Three digital bubble level indicators show exact vehicle position.
    • A twist indicator which warns the operator before potential coach damage can occur.
    • Low voltage detection prevents problems associated with low battery power.
    • Fault indication provides immediate, accurate diagnosis and troubleshooting.
    • There is a built-in speaker for audible alerts.
    • A coach can be parked on an angled surface and remain level.

    Electronic Ride Enhancement System

    Key features of the Electronic Ride Enhancement System include:

    • Ride height can be adjusted while traveling.
    • The suspension automatically adjusts for changing road conditions.
    • Four-corner height sensing with selective averaging.
    • Confirmation of travel ride height eliminating guesswork.
    • Warning alarm when the suspension is low  Step height can be adjusted when leveling is complete
    • Reduces excessive roll during cornering, and pitch during acceleration and braking.
    • Normal ride height is automatically selected by default. Ride height can be raised or lowered as needed. The high rides may be selected to negotiate uneven terrain; low rides may be selected to gain additional clearance to the top of the RV.

    AUTO LEVEL: is used to automatically level the vehicle when it is stationary.
    MANUAL LEVEL: allows the operator to raise or lower each corner of the vehicle individually with the air suspension. Up to (2) corners can be operated at the same time, or all corners can be raised or lowered at once. Manual mode can be used with the ignition either ON or OFF, and when the vehicle is traveling at low speeds (up to 5mph).

    TRAVEL MODE: is operational when the vehicle is in motion. This mode initiates by default when the parking brake is released or if the vehicle begins moving. It is recommended the operator enter this mode before the vehicle begins moving.

    NOTE: The leveling system collects information on the ground speed of the vehicle, so the operational mode can change depending on the speed of the vehicle. In MANUAL mode, the coach can be driven up to 5mph, but if the speed increases to 6 mph the system will switch to TRAVEL mode.

    Accessing the Leveling System

    The leveling system is accessed via the Video Display Controller (VDC) and the Graphical Instrument Cluster (GIC) interface and is integrated into the digital dashboard. The select-able display area is located in the lower-left corner of the digital dash layout.

    NOTE: In order to activate the Leveling System in the Selectable Display area, either the parking brake must be set or vehicle speed must be 0 mph.

    Auto Level Operation

    Auto level uses the air suspension to level the vehicle. When activated, the system detects the lowest corner of the vehicle and levels (lowers) the remaining corners to that position. If the system determines it cannot lower the vehicle to that level, any corners that are low will be raised to the level of the highest corner. Once auto leveling completes, the system goes into low power mode. The leveling system will store the ride height of the vehicle and when ignition is turned OFF the system will go to sleep. After 2 hours in low power mode the system automatically awakens and checks to see if leveling is required. If no leveling is necessary it goes back to sleep. If leveling is necessary the system restores the ride height to the stored height.

    Auto Level Selection

    1. The ignition should be ON and the air system at full pressure.
    2. The parking brake is engaged.
    3. The front wheels are pointing straight ahead.

    Rotate the VDC knob in the Selectable Display to find SUSPENSION/LEVELING.

These menu choices will allow you to level the coach manually: all 4 corners individually, left side, right side, or all 4 corners at the same time. There is a graphic representation of the vehicle with (3) bubble levels. Two of the levels represent the front and rear axles, and the center level represents leveling the coach from front to rear. Optimum leveling occurs when all (3) have the bubbles centered in their re-spectate tubes.

  • In Manual Mode, the entire vehicle may be raised or lowered while parked or moving slowly (under 5 mph). Above 5 mph, the system reverts to Travel Mode.
  • Manual Mode can be used with the ignition either ON or OFF. Wheels must be pointing straight ahead.
  • If the system detects an excessive amount of twist in the vehicle frame during manual adjustments, a TWIST status indicator will light to the right of the graphic outline of the vehicle. The system will not allow any further actions that may cause more twisting. To recover from a TWIST condition, perform an Auto Level, or manually raise or lower the low or high corners to un-twist the frame.
  • If the system detects that the corner height is exceeding factory set height limits (either low or high), the corner will not raise or lower.

Travel Mode (Ride Height) Operation

Travel Mode is used when the vehicle is in motion above 5 mph. This mode controls the vehicle’s air suspension system. There are (3) factory defined lev-els: high ride, low ride, and travel height. When the system is in Travel Mode, the suspension will go to travel height.

Travel Mode

Turn the ignition ON.
The menu will now display PRESS FOR OPTIONS along with the current status. Press the VDC knob to select options. Rotate the VDC knob to highlight travel, and press the VDC knob to select it.Jayco Embark 2023 Manual Level Selection User Manual 04

Select either high ride or low ride from the menu that appears next. (Low Ride for clear-ance at top of coach, high ride for rough terrain)
These modes are used only under predefined speeds. At higher speeds, the vehicle goes to the normal ride height and high and low options are not available. The manufacturer sets the predefined speeds for using high and low ride heights. If the leveling system is turned OFF or in any other mode besides travel, the system will automatically turn on and switch to travel mode if the park brake is released or the vehicle exceeds the maximum set speed. If the park brake is released before travel ride height is achieved, the system sounds a tone every second until normal ride height is reached or until the park brake is set.

CAUTION
The time required to achieve ride height varies with vehicle design.
It is the operator’s responsibility to ensure that the vehicle is at adequate height before driving. If the vehicle is too low, severe damage can result to the fenders when the wheels are turned.

When travel mode is entered from auto or manual mode, a tone sounds until ride height is achieved. The tone also sounds if high ride, low ride, or standard ride mode are set, and will continue until desired ride height is achieved. The vehicle should not be moved while the tone is sounding. It is unadvisable to negotiate uneven terrain in low ride mode. The automatic ride height system will not attempt to make changes while the vehicle is cornering or braking.

Low Ride Height Warning

The indicator “not at ride height” will display and a chime will sound for 3 seconds if the following conditions are present:

  • Vehicle ride height is below a predefined limit
    The system is in manual or travel mode The park brake is OFF.
    This indicates the suspension is below a safe height and fender damage could occur when turning the wheels.

 NOTE:
A road test by the dealer should be included as part of the pre-delivery inspection. The dealer can check for and correct any steering problems before you take delivery.

After this road test has been completed, front-end alignment and/or vibrations will not be covered as part of the new vehicle’s limited warranty.
Follow the Chassis Guide maintenance instructions for the front and rear axle for wheel and suspension maintenance, including the brakes and wheel bearings. Contact your Chassis manufacturer for assistance.

Wheel Lug Nuts/Wheel Liners

Warning
Check and tighten the wheel lug nuts regularly to ensure they did not loosen during travel. Refer to your Chassis Guide for torque recommendations. Failure to tighten and maintain wheel lug nuts to the proper torque specification could allow the wheels to come off while driving, resulting in serious injury or property damage in the event of a collision or loss of vehicle control.

Torque is the amount of rotating force applied to a lug nut, and can only be achieved by using a properly calibrated torque wrench and socket. Do not use a 4-way socket or any other type of wrench that does not measure the actual pressure applied to the lug nut.

NOTE:
The proper method of tightening wheel lug nuts is with a torque wrench, not with an impact wrench or by hand. Because of the importance of having proper torque on the wheel lug nuts, you should always have the wheels mounted and properly torqued by a qualified technician using the proper tools.

After your first trip, check the wheel lug torque periodically for safety according to your Chassis Guide. If you suspect the wheel lug nuts have loosened at any time, have them checked and torqued to the proper limits immediately.

Lugs should be checked:

  • After winter storage
  • After a wheel removal
  • Before starting a trip
  • Following extensive braking.
  • Check and re-torque after the first 10, 25, and 50 miles (16, 40, and 80 kilometers). Thereafter, check and maintain the torque according to the listed torque values.

Refer to the Chassis Guide for torque guidelines.

Wheel Lugs
If you suspect or notice the wheel stud bolts are cracked or broken, they must be replaced, along with adjacent bolts that have probably also been weakened due to the additional stress placed on them.

Aluminum Wheels (if so equipped)
Clean the aluminum wheels with a cleaner that is designed for use on aluminum and apply an appropriate protection agent. Do not use abrasive cleaners. Wheels exposed to seawater or road chemicals should be cleaned as soon as possible. Be sure to use a sponge or chamois leather (brushes may damage the aluminum wheel surface).

Warning
The motor home is very heavy. Raising the motor home to replace the spare tire should only be done with extreme caution by a qualified technician. The vehicle could slip, causing personal injury or death.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO THIS YOURSELF
Do not use the hydraulic leveling jack system to support the motor home while under the vehicle or changing tires. The hydraulic leveling system is designed as a leveling system only. Do not use the hydraulic leveling jack system as a jack or in conjunction with a jack. It is highly recommended that, should a tire change be required, it be performed by a knowledgeable, trained professional. Attempts to change tires while supporting the motor home with the hydraulic leveling jack system could result in damage to the motor home and risk causing serious injury or death.

  • When replacing a tire, make sure to replace it with a tire of the same size and specifications (refer to your Chassis Guide for assistance).

If you experience a flat tire on your motor home while driving, gradually decreases your vehicle speed (if possible), and move the motor home to a safe place on the side of the road. Contact your road service provider (if applicable) or a qualified service facility for assistance. Do not attempt to change the tire or jack the motor home up yourself; this is why a jack and a spare tire have not been included with the motor home. Make sure the road service technician reads and is familiar with the Chassis Guide information regarding changing the tires. Make sure the wheel lug nuts have been tightened to the proper torque as outlined in your Chassis Guide.

Awnings

Warning
Awnings must be closed (and secured) while the RV is in transit.
Keep clear of arm assemblies while opening, adjusting, or closing the awning. Failure to obey this caution could result in injury and/or property damage.
Always operate the awning according to the instructions.
Periodically check that the fasteners are tight (tighten if necessary).
Keep the awning fabric and arms clean.

Caution
The effects of wind and rain on an awning are unpredictable and can cause severe damage to the awning and/or the recreation vehicle. Retract the awning if:

  • If wind or extended periods of rain are expected.
  • If you leave the RV unattended for a length of time, avoid unexpected climate conditions.

Awning Care

  1. Keep your awnings clean and in good condition to prevent costly repairs.
  2. Keep the awning fabric clean. For detailed cleaning information, refer to the manufacturer’s owner information.
  3. Do not use insecticides or other sprays near the awning fabric. These can cause stains, and could adversely affect the fabric’s ability to repel water.
  4. Do not expose the awning to adverse environmental conditions, corrosive agents, or other harmful conditions.
  5. Do not allow the corner of the entry door to contact the awning fabric. Otherwise, premature wear or tearing of the awning fabric could occur.
  6. Never close the awning (for storage) when wet. The combination of moisture and dirt could result in mildew, discoloration, and stains. If it is necessary to roll up the awning (temporarily) while it is wet, make sure you roll it out and let it dry (as soon as conditions allow) before rolling it up again.
  7. Do not allow dirt, leaves, or other debris to accumulate on the awning, which could cause abrasion and stains. Mildew could grow on dirt and organic debris, causing permanent discoloration, stains, and odors to the awning fabric.
  8. Do not use strong chemicals or abrasives to clean parts, as their protective surfaces will be damaged. Clean awning hardware (as needed) with a mild surface cleaner.
  9. Apply silicone spray lubricant as needed to the moving parts on the fabric roller tube assembly. Lubricate all pins and sliding surfaces of the arm assemblies with silicone spray, as needed.
  10. Do not use abrasive or corrosive cleaners, mildew removers, or hard bristle brushes on the awning fabric.

Vinyl awning fabric is durable and water-resistant. Wrinkling is a normal characteristic, which may be more noticeable when the awning is retracted, and after prolonged periods of stowage (rolled up). Leave the awning open during warm weather to minimize wrinkling. A slight “travel line” may appear where the door roller (if installed) contacts the fabric. This is normal and does not affect the integrity of the fabric.

To clean the fabric:

  1. Open the awning.
  2. Mix 1/4 cup of soap with five gallons of fresh water. Always use a natural soap, not a detergent. The water should be cold to lukewarm, never more the 100° F.
  3. Liberally drench the fabric with a cleaning solution.
  4. Close the awning and allow the cleaning solution to soak for five minutes.
  5. Open the awning and thoroughly hose off the top and bottom of the fabric with clean water. Repeat if necessary.
  6. Remove the solution COMPLETELY from the awning fabric.
  7. Make sure the fabric is dry before closing the awning. Air-dry only. Never apply heat to the fabric.

Your recreation vehicle includes the following options:

  1. Power window awnings
  2. Slide out awnings
  3. Power awning over the entrance door
  4. Power patio awning

Power switches to operate the awnings are found on the multiplex touchscreen and entry door switch.

Power Awnings

Each power awning will have its own control switch. Pressing and holding the switch will extend or retract the awning. The awning will stop when the switch is released.

NOTE
Do not overextend the awning. If the awning or awing skirt show signs of overextending, retract the awning until it is in the appropriate position.

  • Most power awnings give you the ability to adjust the awning pitch (slope). This will help with water runoff and pooling. When adjusting the awning scope, be aware of entrance door and window clearances. Coming into contact with a door or window can damage or tear the awning fabric. Before retracting the awning, make sure there is no pooled water or debris on the awning. When preparing to travel, make sure the awning is completely retracted and secured. Turn off any light strips (if applicable). Make sure all power sources to the awning have been disabled. Test the awning prior to leaving to make sure it does not extend.
    Most power awnings have a manual override in the event the awning will not retract. Refer to the manufacturer’s user guide for detailed safety, operating, and troubleshooting information.

Testing The Campsite Power Connection

The campsite 120-volt power receptacle(s) should always be tested for proper functionality prior to plugging the recreation vehicle shore power cord into it.
Campsite 120-volt power receptacles can be tested using a digital multimeter or a dedicated circuit analyzer. Dedicated circuit analyzers plug directly into the campsite power receptacle and minimally test for open neutral, open ground, and correct polarity.

Warning
Do not hook the power cord to any receptacle until you have verified proper polarity and grounding.

DO NOT plug the shore power cord into a campsite receptacle(s):

  1. That has reverse polarity
  2. That has non-functioning ground circuits
  3. That shows outward signs of heat damage.
  4. Doing so may result in property damage or serious injury. Plugging the shore power cord into an incorrectly wired power source could damage the recreation vehicle electrical system and result in severe or fatal injury. Damage or injury resulting from connection to malfunctioning or improperly wired power sources is not covered by your recreation vehicle warranty.

DO NOT

  1. Do not use any cheater plug, adapter or extension cord to reconfigure incoming AC power or break the continuity of the circuit connected to the grounding pin.
  2. Do not connect the power cord into an outlet that is not grounded, or adapt the power cord plug to connect it to a receptacle for which it is not designed.
  3. Do not remove the grounding pin to connect to a non-grounded receptacle. Removal of the ground pin disables an important safety feature designed to prevent shock and electrocution hazards.
  4. Do not connect the power cord to an extension cord. Use of an improper extension cord will cause overheating of the cord as well as potentially causing premature failure of the AC equipment.
  5. The power cord must be fully extended when in use and not left coiled in the electrical compartment or on the ground. A power cord left coiled may potentially create enough heat to melt its protective casing.

It is the responsibility of the owner of the electrical receptacle to ensure that the receptacle is properly wired and grounded. Reverse polarity and/or improper grounding of your RV can cause property damage or serious personal injury.

Connecting the Power Cord
Always test the external power source (i.e., the campsite power receptacle or electrical box) with a ground monitor before connecting your power cord to it. If the ground monitor indicates ‘reverse polarity’ or an ‘open ground’ DO NOT connect the power cord.

To help prevent power surges from damaging the connected loads, please follow these instructions when hooking up to the external power source:

  1. Turn off the load center main 120-volt circuit breaker.
  2. Carefully extend the entire length of the power cord (approximately 25’-35’) from the electric cable hatch to the external power source.
  3. Plug the power cord into the receptacle. Be sure all the power cord prongs are properly plugged into the receptacle.
  4. Return to your RV and turn on the load center main circuit breaker.
    The shore power cord should be unplugged when the recreation vehicle is left unattended.

When you are ready to leave, reverse the power cord connection process. Use care to prevent damaging the power cord electrical connection pins when connecting or disconnecting the shore power cord. Grasp the plug to remove the power cord from the outlet; do not unplug it by pulling on the cord.

Maintenance
Inspect the power cord for cuts, cracks and worn insulation. Have the power cord replaced immediately if these symptoms are noticed?

Jayco Embark 2023 Inverter Charger User Manual

Jayco Embark 2023 Inverter Charger User Manual

Inverter Charger

Your motor home has a multiple 12-volt DC to 120-volt AC inverter charger installed that is designed to run selected 120-volt appliances from house auxiliary battery power. For complete detailed operation and safety information refer to the manufacturer’s owners guide found in your warranty packet. Follow all safety information displayed in the manual. The inverter charger is located between the chassis frame rails in the cargo storage area, the controls are operated from the touchscreen. 120-volt circuit breakers protecting inverter charger output circuits are located in the sub-panels under the bed. Circuit breaker labeling near the sub-panels indicate which appliances can be operated from inverter charger power.
Inverter charger 120-volt AC output is a pure sine wave type. The inverter/charger will operate most appliances, tools and other 120-volt AC equipment. The inverter charger also functions as a multi-stage 12-volt power converter/battery charger when the motor home is connected to 120-volt shore power or when the generator is running. In this mode the inverter/charger charges the house auxiliary batteries. Chassis batteries can also be charged either from shore power or using the generator.

NOTE: The inverter is controlled through the Vega Touch system. Refer to the touch screen user guide in your warranty packet or online at http://www.fireflyint.com for detailed instructions.

WARNING
The inverter/charger generates heat while operating and needs unrestricted air flow for proper cooling. Do not store anything around or on top of the inverter/charger that would restrict air flow around it.

Inverter Charger Remote Controls

To enable automatic inverter operation during power blackout or brownout conditions leave the inverter/charger in “INVERTER” mode at all times.

When in “INVERTER” mode the inverter/charger will be on standby when the motor home is connected to 50-amp 120-volt AC shore power or when the generator is operating. All connected appliances operate off of shore power or generator power during this time. If shore power is interrupted and the generator isn’t running, the inverter/charger will automatically activate providing 120-volt AC power to connected appliances.

Inverter Charger battery charging function

The inverter/charger functions as a multi-stage battery charger when the motor home is connected to 120-volt AC shore power or when the generator is operating. The inverter/charger automatically senses auxiliary battery condition and applies the appropriate battery charging profile. In the event the motor home auxiliary batteries become completely discharged, the inverter/charger will be unable to sense battery voltage and will not begin its charge sequence. To manually initiate charging, turn the chassis ignition key to the “on” position for a short period of time. If the batteries do not charge, or fail to hold a charge, they may be defective.

NOTE: Leaving the inverter/charger in the “on” position when the mo-tor home is in prolonged storage (no 120-volt AC shore power connected) will drain the auxiliary batteries even though all 120-volt AC appliances are turned off.

Inverter Charger fault conditions
Certain fault conditions will cause the inverter to shut down.

These conditions include:

  1. High or low battery
  2. Power consumption overload
  3. Inverter overheating
  4. Inverter internal fault

NOTE: High battery voltage may be caused by excessive or unregulated volt-age from solar panels and/or other external battery charging sources.

Inverter Charger 12-volt DC circuit breaker

Each inverter/charger and its 12-volt wiring are protected by a replaceable high-current fuse typically located near the auxiliary battery bank in the battery box. The 2000-watt inverter/charger is protected by a 300-amp fuse.

Inverter Charger integral 120-volt AC circuit breakers

The inverter/charger is equipped with integral 120-volt AC circuit breakers located on the inverter/charger metal case. In overload conditions, these circuit breakers will trip and interrupt inverter/charger 120-volt AC input and/or output. After correcting the overload condition, reset these circuit breakers to resume inverter/charger 120-volt AC operation.

12-volt DC System

Your motor home lighting is powered by 12-volt electricity. The 12-volt DC system is composed of components that will operate when the following conditions are met:

The house batteries power all interior 12-volt components including the lighting fixtures, water pump, 12-volt motors, 12-volt appliances, etc. when the motor home is not connected to a 120-volt power source. 12-volt DC power is supplied when the shore power cord is plugged into a 120-volt external power source. House batteries will be charged also in most situations. Power is supplied by the chassis alternator when the chassis engine is running.

WARNING
Replacement fuses must be of the same voltage, amperage rating, and type. Never use a higher-rated replacement fuse; doing so may cause a fire by overheating the RV wiring. The 12-volt fuse panel is labeled to indicate fuse sizes, positions, and the components powered. Fuses are located in the load center.

Replacing a Fuse

Before replacing a fuse, always turn off the electrical components protected by it.

  1. Disconnect the shore power cord.
  2. Inverter should be OFF.
  3. Remove the fuse panel cover to check fuses.
  4. Pull the fuse straight out of the fuse block.
  5. Insert a new fuse of the same specified voltage, and amperage rating and type in the original location.

The fuse panel label should be kept permanently affixed to your recreation vehicle. Fuses will not offer complete protection of the electrical system in the event of a power surge or spike.

12-Volt DC Outlet

There may be one or more 12-volt DC power outlets in your recreation vehicle. When the 12-volt DC outlet is used as a power source for an electric appliance, make sure the appliance operates on 12-volt DC power and that it consumes less than 60 watts (5 amps) of power.

WARNING
Keep the protective dust cap on the 12-volt DC outlet when not in use to prevent ingestion of foreign material and potential short circuit conditions.

Jayco Embark 2023 Battery Replacement User Manual

Battery Replacement

If house batteries need to be replaced, only deep cycle batteries of the same size and type should be installed. Refer to the Chassis Guide for information on chassis battery replacement.

Battery Disconnect Solenoid Switch (House Battery Disconnect)

The battery disconnect solenoid switch, or “main power switch,” is located near the entrance door on the front of the passenger’s console.
This switch lights up red when turned on.

NOTE: The combination carbon monoxide/propane alarm is connected to a constant 12-volt power source. The carbon monoxide propane alarm remains operational when the battery disconnect solenoid switch, or “main power switch,” is in the “OFF” position.Jayco Embark 2023 Battery Replacement User Manual 01

The power steps at the entrance door will also continue to work with these switches in the “OFF” position.

Battery Isolation Manager

Your motor home is equipped with a Battery Isolation Manager (BIM) that monitors the battery voltage of both the chassis and house batteries over long periods of time. If it senses a charging voltage it connects the two batteries together. If the charge system is overburdened, it isolates both batteries. When batteries have reached a float charge state for 1. hour, the batteries are isolated to prevent overcharging. It will reconnect if either battery drops to approximately 80% charge and the other is being charged. If batteries are not being charged they will be isolated to prevent an electrical draw in one system from depleting the other battery.

The “Battery Boost” switch is a manual override of the Battery Isolation Manager. It can be used in an emergency (when chassis or house batteries are discharged) to start the chassis engine or the generator. To operate, press and hold the Battery Boost start switch located on the driver’s left side console. While the battery boost switch is pressed, use the ignition key to start the chassis engine or the generator switch to start the generator. Release the battery boost switch once the engine or generator has started. If your chassis and house batteries are too discharged to start the engine or generator with this method, they need to be recharged with the on-board inverter/charger or by connecting the motor home to shore power.

Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS)

Your motor home is equipped with an Automatic Transfer Switch with built in reverse polarity protection. The ATS is microprocessor controlled and will automatically detect which power source is being used (generator or shore power) and allow power from that connection only. You will not have to plug and unplug power to the coach if you decide to run the generator. If you plug into shore power, the ATS will pass power to the motor home. If the generator is started, it will override the shore power input (called generator dominant) and supply the RV with electrical power from the generator. When the generator is shut down, shore power is restored. There may be a slight flicker of the lights when the ATS changes over from one to the other, but there is no real interruption of power. The ATS will disconnect from shore power completely if the power coming in is not high enough quality (i.e. either low/high voltage, or low/high frequency). When the generator is operating, it powers the inverter/charger which in turn functions as a multi-stage battery charger to charge the house auxiliary and chassis batteries.
Refer to and follow safety information found in the manufacturer’s troubleshooting guide found in your warranty packet.

NOTE: The generator requires 12-volt power from the house auxiliary batteries to start, and draws fuel to operate from the chassis fuel tank. If the fuel level in the chassis fuel tank drops to or below ¼ full, the generator will shut “off” and cannot be re-started until the fuel tank is filled to above ¼ full. Use the prime function to clear air from the fuel lines.

120-Volt Circuit Breakers

The 120-volt AC circuit breakers located inside the load center protect all 120-volt wiring and components from circuit overloads and short circuits. Should a circuit overload or short circuit occur the circuit breaker protecting the affected circuit will “trip” preventing the flow of electricity through that circuit. If a circuit breaker trips, shut off the appliance on that circuit (i.e., power converter, etc.) and allow the circuit breaker to cool down for a brief period of time. After it cools down, reset the circuit breaker by moving its lever “off” and then back to the “on” position. If the circuit breaker re-trips or frequently trips, contact your dealer to have the electrical problem diagnosed and repaired. A circuit breaker identification label is permanently attached to the inside surface of the 120-volt Load Center.

CAUTION
Circuit breakers and fuses will not offer complete protection of the electrical system in the event of a power surge or voltage spike.

Replacement
Only replace circuit breakers with those of the same specified type, voltage, and current rating. Never replace a circuit breaker with one listed at a higher amperage rating. Please contact your dealer for repair assistance when replacing circuit breakers.

WARNING
Replacement circuit breakers must be of the same voltage, amperage rating and type. Never use a higher-rated replacement circuit breaker; doing so may cause a fire by overheating the RV wiring.

Maintenance

At the beginning of the camping season, inspect the circuit breakers and replace as needed. Test by turning each circuit breaker “off” and back “on”. Circuit breakers are wearable parts and must be replaced as needed as part of your RV maintenance. If you have any questions, contact your dealer. A label is provided to explain the function of every 120-volt circuit breaker. This label is located on or near the appropriate load center or sub-panel and must remain permanently affixed to the recreation vehicle.

Jayco Embark 2023 120-Volt 50 AMP AC Electric System User Manual

Jayco Embark 2023 120-Volt 50 AMP AC Electric System User Manual

120-Volt 50 AMP AC Electric System

The 50 AMP 120-volt 60hz AC electrical system can be powered by an outside 120/240-volt 60hz utility service like those commonly found in campgrounds or by 120/240-volt 60hz generator power. The entire system is designed to operate on 2 legs of 120-volt power at a maximum current flow of 50 amperes per leg. Exposure to voltages higher or lower than a nominal 120-volts, will damage or shorten the service life of the electrical system and appliances. The 50 AMP 120-volt 60hz AC electrical system can be powered by an outside 120/240-volt 60hz utility service like those commonly found in campgrounds or by 120/240-volt 60hz generator power. The following electrical components will only operate when connected to 120-volt power: air conditioner(s), refrigerator, microwave oven, television(s), home theater system(s), water heater, washer, dryer, fireplace, electric stove, and appliances plugged into convenience receptacles. These components will create a surge on the inverter.

WARNING
Circuit breakers and fuses will not offer complete protection of the electrical system in the event of power surge or voltage spike.
Make certain the external power source you connect the power cord to is a properly wired 50 amp NEMA 14-50 RV receptacle and not 240 volt AC. PLUG INTO 50-AMP SERVICE ONLY.

WARNING

  1. Do not hook up the power cord to any receptacle until you have verified proper polarity and grounding. Polarity indicators can be purchased in most electrical and hardware stores.
  2. Do not use any cheater plug, adapter or extension cord to reconfigure incoming AC power or break the continuity of the circuit connected to the grounding pin.
  3. Do not connect the power cord into an outlet that is not grounded, or adapt the power cord plug to connect it to a receptacle for which it is not designed.
  4. Do not remove the grounding pin to connect to a non-grounded receptacle. Removal of the ground pin disables an important safety feature designed to prevent shock and electrocution hazards.
  5. Do not connect the power cord to an extension cord. Use of an improper extension cord will cause overheating of the cord as well as potentially causing premature failure of the AC equipment.

It is the responsibility of the owner of the electrical receptacle to ensure that the receptacle is properly wired and grounded. Reverse polarity and/or improper grounding of your recreation vehicle can cause personal injury or death. The 50 AMP external utility power cord is commonly referred to as the “shore” power cord. It is designed to mate and properly function with 50 AMP “shore” power receptacles avail-able at most campgrounds. The shore power cord is designed to continuously carry the 50 AMP current flow required to power each leg of the electrical system. It also creates a critical ground connection between the vehicle electrical system and the campground shore power receptacle. Always test the external power source (i.e., the campsite power receptacle or electrical box) with a ground monitor before connecting your power cord to it. If the ground monitor indicates ‘reverse polarity’ or an ‘open ground’. DO NOT connect the power cord. Regularly inspect the shore power cord for cuts, cracks, worn insulation and other damage. Have the power cord replaced immediately if problems exist.

Calculating 50 AMP Electrical Load (if so equipped)

When connecting appliances to the electrical system, 120-volt power usage is limited to 50 AMPs per electrical system leg for a total of 100 amps. Operating appliances collectively place an added load on your 120-volt electrical system. A circuit breaker “trip” may occur if you overload the recreation vehicle and/or campground electrical system. The amperage rating of individual appliances can be calculated by dividing appliance wattage consumed (normally listed on the appliance) by nominal design volt-age (120 for a 120-volt appliance). For example, 1200 watts divided by 120 volts equals 10 amps.

Generator

Your motor home is equipped with a diesel-powered generator. The generator produces 120 240-volt power compatible with the motor home electrical system. It can power the entire motor home when 120/240-volt shore power is not available.

WARNING
CARBON MONOXIDE IS DEADLY! Do not run the generator when your motor home is indoors or in a confined space.
DO NOT use the AGS AUTO ON or QUIET ON modes (if so equipped) when your motor home is indoors or in a confined space.
Asphyxiation or carbon monoxide poisoning hazards exist whenever generator exhaust gasses can accumulate.
MOVING PARTS AND ELECTRICITY can cause severe personal in-jury or death. To reduce exposure to these hazards, always disable AGS (if so equipped) before:

  1. Sleeping in the vehicle, unless the vehicle has a working CARBON MONOX-IDE detector.

Jayco Embark 2023 Exhaust Gas Fumes User Manual

Jayco Embark 2023 Exhaust Gas Fumes User Manual

Warning
Avoid inhaling exhaust gases as they contain carbon monoxide, which is a potentially toxic gas that is colorless and odorless.
If you are in a parked motor home with either the engine running or a generator running there is a potential for exhaust fumes to filter back into the motor home.

To avoid breathing exhaust gases, follow these precautions:

  • Avoid inhaling exhaust gases as they contain carbon monoxide, which is a potentially toxic gas that is colorless and odorless.
  • If you are in a parked motor home with either the engine running or a generator running there is a potential for exhaust fumes to filter back into the motor home.

To avoid breathing exhaust gases, follow these precautions:
Do not run the engine in confined areas, such as a closed garage, any longer than needed to move your motor home in or out of the area. Windows should be closed while driving or running the generator (if so equipped) to avoid drawing dangerous exhaust gases into the motor home. If you suspect that exhaust fumes are entering the passenger compartment, have the cause determined and corrected as soon as possible.

If you must drive under these circumstances, close all the windows, and adjust the heating or cooling system to force outside air into the motor home (set the blower on high speed).
The best protection against carbon monoxide entry into the motor home is a properly main-tained ventilation system and an active carbon monoxide detector. To allow for proper operation of the motor home ventilation system, keep the ventilation inlet grill(s) clear of snow, leaves or other obstructions at all times.

Maintenance
It is recommended that the exhaust system and vehicle body be inspected by a qualified motor home service center:

  1. Each time the engine is ready for an oil change.
  2. Whenever a change in the sound of the exhaust is noticed.
  3. Whenever the exhaust system, underbody or rear of the vehicle is damaged.

For more information refer to your Chassis Guide.

Propane Gas System

Propane or LP (liquefied petroleum) gas is an efficient form of energy when proper handling and safety precautions are observed. The propane system in your motor home furnishes the fuel for cooking, heating, hot water and can be an alternative energy source for refrigeration. Propane is heavier than air and tends to flow to lower areas and will sometimes pocket in these low areas, such as the floor. Your motor home is equipped with a propane alarm (refer to Safety Precautions, Combination Carbon Monoxide (CO)/Propane Alarm).

Warning
Propane cylinders should not be placed or stored inside the vehicle. LP-gas cylinders are equipped with safety devices that relieve pressure by discharging gas into the atmosphere.

The propane fuel system is comprised of numerous components such as the propane con-tainer, hoses, propane gas regulator, piping and copper tubing to each appliance.

Your motor home has been carefully tested at the factory and by your selling dealer for leakage. Travel vibrations can loosen fittings. Have the vehicle propane system checked at all connections soon after the purchase of your vehicle, and after the initial filling of the propane tanks.
Continued periodic checks of the propane system at 5,000 miles of travel (or at least once a year) by a qualified propane service representative as part of your normal maintenance is recommended. Hand tighten the LP gas system valves only, do not use a wrench or pliers as over-tightening may damage the valve seals and cause them to leak.

NOTE:
All propane lines have been checked with air pressure at the time of manufacture. Dealers are required to recheck and adjust pressure before retail delivery.

The following label should be kept permanently affixed to the motor home:Jayco Embark 2023 Exhaust Gas Fumes User Manual 01

Jayco Embark 2023 Propane Gas Container User Manual

Jayco Embark 2023 Propane Gas Container User Manual

Propane Gas Container

Propane is a true gas compressed into a liquid form. As the fuel is released from the container, it changes to vapor which is then used for the operation of the appliances. Propane will not run through the appliances in a liquid state. A permanently mounted A.S.M.E.-approved propane container is located under the floor of the motor home.

NOTE:
Tanks are to be installed, fueled, and maintained in accordance to State and Local codes, rules, regulations, or laws.

Propane expands 1½ percent for every ten degrees of increase in temperature. It is imperative to leave sufficient space inside the container to allow for the natural expansion of gas during warmer weather.Jayco Embark 2023 Propane Gas Container User Manual01

Servicing or Filling

Warning
Always shut OFF the engine while refueling. Do not smoke and do not operate other ignition sources while refueling.
When the propane container is disconnected from the main supply hose and the P.O.L. connection, install the P.O.L. plastic cap that is attached to the container. If you suspect your propane container has been overfilled, contact your dealer or a qualified propane technician for assistance immediately. Do not attempt to service a propane container overfill yourself.

Because the container is not removable, the motor home will need to be driven to a qualified propane facility for servicing or filling. Only the authorized gas service technician(s) should be near the motor home while the propane tank is being filled. The new propane container must be carefully purged for proper appliance performance and operation. The propane tank must NEVER BE OVERFILLED.
Replace all protective covers and caps on the propane system and/or container after filling. Make sure the valve is closed and the compartment door is securely latched.

LP Gas Container Overfill
Never allow your propane tank to be filled above the maximum safe level as indicated by the fixed liquid level gauge.
Do not allow the visible gauge to be used for filling. Overfilling the propane container above the liquid capacity indicated on the container could allow liquid propane to enter the system that is designed for vapor only creating a hazardous condition. The following warming label has been placed by the propane container.Jayco Embark 2023 Propane Gas Container User Manual 01

Refer to your Warranty Packet for more information on the LP gas system components.

Propane Regulator

Warning
Propane regulators must always be installed with the regulator vent facing downward. Regulators that are not located in baggage compartments have been equipped with a protective cover. Make sure the regulator vent faces downward and (if applicable) the cover is in place to minimize vent blockage that could result in excessive gas pressure causing fire or explosion.

NOTE:
Regulator appearance and type may vary by model.

Single stage regulator

Some models are equipped with a single-stage regulator.

Two-stage regulator

The two-stage regulator has the only moving component in the propane system. Its sole function is to reduce the pressure from the propane containers to a safe and consistent low operating pressure. The first stage reduces the container pressure to 10-13 lbs. The second stage reduces the 10-13 lbs. of pressure further to an operating pressure of 11” W.C. (water column) or 6.35 oz. of outlet pressure to your appliances.
The second stage is adjustable and will need to be adjusted by your dealer or qualified pro-pane service technician for optimum performance (this adjustment should always be made with a properly calibrated manometer).
If the pressure is too high, it affects performance and safety; if the pressure is too low, your appliances will not operate correctly.
If your recreation vehicle is equipped with the “automatic” two-stage regulator, with both cylinders full of propane, turn the lever on the regulator towards the cylinder you wish to use first. This will be the “supply” cylinder and the other the “reserve”. Slowly open both cylinder valves. The indicator on top of the regulator will turn bright green. When the cylinder becomes empty, the indicator will change to bright orange. Turn the regulator lever to the side of the “reserve” cylinder and the green signal should return. You may now remove the empty cylinder to have it refilled without interrupting the flow from the full bottle. After filling the cylinder, connect the pigtail hose and slowly open the bottle valve. Refer to the manufacturer’s pamphlet included in your warranty packet and follow all safety instructions and warnings listed.

Jayco Embark 2023 Propane Use and Safety User Manual

Jayco Embark 2023 Propane Use and Safety User Manual

Propane Use and Safety

Propane is a colorless and odorless gas that, in the liquefied state, resembles water. An odorant (usually a sulfur com-pound) is added as a warning agent. If you smell propane within the vehicle, quickly and carefully perform the procedure listed on the propane system label. This label has been placed in the vehicle near the range for models equipped with a propane system. When a propane container is low, there may be a concentration of an onion or garlic-like odor, which can be mistaken for a propane gas leak. After the propane container has been refueled, the odor will usually disappear. If not, turn off the valve(s) and have the propane system inspected by your dealer or qualified propane service representative.Jayco Embark 2023 Propane Use and Safety User Manual 01

Propane Leak Test

Leaks may be found easily with a soapy water solution. Do not use a solution containing ammonia or chlorine when locating leaks. These products are corrosive to copper gas lines and brass fittings, which could result in deterioration of the copper and brass components. Apply the soapy solution to the outside of the gas piping fittings. If a leak is present, the soapy solution will “bubble” at the leak point. If a leak is indicated, shut off the propane system valve(s) and contact your dealer or qualified propane service representative immediately.

Danger
Never use an open flame to test for a propane leak. Do not check for leaks using products that contain ammonia or chlorine; these products can cause cracks to form on the metal tubing and brass fittings.

Using the Propane System
Use the following steps for propane operation:

  1. Close ALL burner valves, controls and pilot light valves.
  2. Open the main valve in the propane tank slowly to avoid a rush of propane vapor through the excess flow valve, causing propane “freeze-up.” Should you experience propane “freeze-up”, close the main valve and wait 15 minutes before trying again.
  3. Listen carefully as propane begins to flow. If a hissing noise is heard for more than one or two seconds, close the main valve and contact your dealer to have the propane system tested.
  4. Light the appliances as needed and directed in the appliance manufacturer’s owner manual located in the Warranty Packet.

Keep the propane container valves closed at all times unless you are using the propane gas system or are having the propane container filled.
Make sure that you read and fully understand ALL safety requirements for handling and operation of the propane system.
The propane system must be handled with care. If you have any questions or concerns, consult with your dealer and/or the specific appliance manufacturer.
If you have double cylinders on your recreation vehicle, use only one at a time. Otherwise, the propane supply will be drawn equally from both cylinders until the supply has been to-tally exhausted. Using one cylinder until it is empty and then using the second cylinder will allow you to fill the empty cylinder at your convenience without running out of propane.

Cooking With Propane Gas

Warning
Do not turn gas range burner controls to ON and allow gas to escape before lighting.
Do not use portable fuel burning equipment (i.e., wood and charcoal grills or stoves) inside the recreation vehicle.

Unlike homes, the amount of oxygen supply is limited due to the size of the recreation ve-hicle. Proper ventilation when using the cooking appliance(s) will help avoid the danger of asphyxiation.
It is especially important that cooking appliances not be used for comfort heating, as the danger of asphyxiation is greater when the appliance is used for long periods of time.

FAILURE TO COMPLY MAY RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY.
These warning labels are located in the cooking area to remind the user to provide an ad-equate supply of fresh air for combustion.Jayco Embark 2023 Propane Use and Safety User Manual 02

Jayco Embark 2023 Calculating Propane Gas Usage User Manual

Jayco Embark 2023 Calculating Propane Gas Usage User Manual

 

Calculating Propane Gas

Most RV gas appliances are operated intermittently, and each has a different BTU rating. You will need to consider this when planning your propane supply and consumption. Unless there is heavy use of hot water, the water heater consumption of propane is minimal. During cool temperatures or high wind conditions, furnace consumption can be extremely high.
To calculate your propane supply, take the BTU ratings for your propane appliances and divide that into the BTU availability. Each gallon of propane gas (3.785 liters) produces about 91,500 BTU’s (96,528 kilojoules) of heat energy.

Propane consumption chart

The following chart provides average propane consumption information.Jayco Embark 2023 Calculating Propane Gas Usage User Manual 01

Traveling With Propane

NOTE:
Some states prohibit propane appliance operation during travel, especially in underground tunnels. Know the laws for the areas where you travel.

Danger
All pilot lights, appliances, and their igniters (see operating instructions) should be turned off before refueling of motor fuel tanks and/or propane containers.
These can cause the ignition of flammable vapors, which can lead to a fire or explosion.

FAILURE TO COMPLY COULD RESULT IN FIRE, DEATH, OR SERIOUS INJURY.
Use care when fueling your motor fuel tanks and/or propane containers. Make certain your propane tank is properly fastened in place.

Plumbing System

There are two different water systems in your recreation vehicle:
The freshwater system consists of the freshwater holding tank, faucets, and connections, water pump, water heater, and tub/shower. On some models, it may also include the water purification system or outside shower assembly (if so equipped). Depending on your model, the wastewater system consists of the wastewater and sewage holding tank(s), drains, and toilet. Models with a cassette toilet will only have the wastewater system.

Plumbing System Maintenance

  • Check all fittings, pressure and waste, for leaks before each trip or before vehicle storage as part of your normal maintenance:
  • Inspect all faucets, the water purification system (if so equipped) and sink connections (including drain baskets or filters).
  • Inspect connections at the water pump and water heater (if so equipped).
  • At the end of every trip, you should drain any unused water from the freshwater system.

Typically, there are labels affixed to the exterior of the recreation vehicle sidewall that indicate the locations of the water system drains and fills. Be aware some drain valves may be located inside the vehicle (once the exterior label is found, go inside to find the drain corresponding location).
Refer to the manufacturer’s operating manual included in your warranty packet for the de-tailed operating, sanitizing, and winterizing information for each water system component.

Monitor Panel

Your motor home is equipped with a tank monitor system. The Vega Touch touchscreen system in the RV includes a tank monitor screen that also shows tank levels by percentage. If the tanks are empty, they will read 0%, if they are full they will read 100%. The horizontal bars will fill in according to what percentage the tanks are indicating. There is also a switch to operate the water pump on this screen.
Refer to the Vega Touch User Guide included in your warranty packet or online at http://www.fireflyint.com for specific instructions.

Fresh Water System

All water contains contaminant and mineral particles that can cause fresh water system odors. Untreated well water is a major source of water system odors. The fresh water (potable water) system needs periodic sanitization to take care of all the components in the plumbing system to discourage the growth of bacteria and other organisms that can contaminate the water supply.

Warning
DO NOT drink water deemed microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality.
Avoid traveling with full fresh, black or grey water holding tanks. The weight of holding tank contents in not calculated into the RV cargo carrying capacity. Traveling with full tanks could cause you to exceed the individual tire ratings and/or the RV GAWR or GVWR. Traveling with full tanks can also affect your vehicle handling characteristics.

Do not remove the potable water label from your recreation vehicle.
You should use a non-toxic drinking water hose dedicated only to supplying the recreation vehicle with fresh water. To reduce the chance of contamination, prevent the non-toxic drinking water hose from coming into contact with the ground.Jayco Embark 2023 Calculating Propane Gas Usage User Manual 02

NOTE:
If needed, sanitize the water system prior to travel.

Jayco Embark 2023 Water Pressure Regulator User Manual

Jayco Embark 2023 Water Pressure Regulator User Manual

Water Pressure Regulator

A water pressure regulator is recommended to prevent damage to the plumbing system or components. To prevent damage when using the city water connection, a 45 lb. (315 KPa) rated water pressure regulator is recommended.

Excessive pressure from the water supply source may be encountered in some parks, especially in mountain regions when using the fresh water inlet or black tank flush. Water pressure regulators are available to protect your recreational vehicles plumbing system against such high pressure.

Fresh Water Holding Tank

  • Do not cap, block or modify the fresh water tank overflow tubes in any way. Enough water pressure can build up during the filling process to damage the plumbing system if the overflow tubes are obstructed.
  •  Be careful not to overfill the fresh water holding tank. It can pressurize the tank, causing leakage and water damage and void the warranty. DO NOT leave the tank unattended while filling.

There may be several ways to fill the fresh water tank depending on the model. For details of each method, refer to the Utility Center or Water Connection section. There are plastic overflow tubes in the fresh water holding tank which allow water to flow out of the water tank. Occasionally, you may see water coming from the overflow tubes when the fresh water holding tank is filled. This is normal and can be a result of the recreation vehicle being parked on an incline, or the motion caused by starting or stopping during travel.

12-volt Water Pump

There must be sufficient 12-volt DC power to run the water pump when your recreation vehicle is not hooked up to city water. Once activated, the water pump (also known as the demand pump) will self-prime, and provide water. The water pump continues to run until maximum pressure is achieved and shut off. The water pump will automatically re-start when it senses a drop in the water pressure. The pump is designed for . Using the pump continuously or with high pressure will shorten the life of the pump and is not covered in your warranty. Some cycling may occur, depending on the volume of water being released. The water pump is engineered with a check valve to prevent water from back flowing into the fresh water supply tank.Jayco Embark 2023 Starting the Generator User Manual 02

NOTE: The water pump switches should be in the OFF position when the recreation for any amount of time.

Maintenance

Periodically check the in-line water pump strainer for accumulated debris. To clean, shut off the water pump, unscrew the clear cap, remove the re-useable metal strainer, clear any debris, then reinstall. Normal pump maintenance consists of checking and cleaning of the strainer, normal sanitizing and winterizing and occasionally checking all plumbing hardware and fittings for tight-ness. Lack of sanitizing can lead to premature pump failure and poor performance over time. Scale build-up on the diaphragm and valves, can cause low flow and leak back (occasional pump cycling with no faucets open or tank filling up when hooked up to city water). For additional information on the care and operation of the pump, read the safety and operating information in the pump manufacturer’s owner’s manual.

Water Pump Switch

Most water pump switches illuminate when the water pump is activated. Typical switch locations are in the back of the unit or on the monitor panel, or the switch may be art of a touchscreen system (if so equipped). When the water pump switch is ON the pump runs until 45 lbs. of pressure has been achieved. The red light will stay on.

Water Purification System

The canister filter is the primary filter used for the complete water system. If the water sup-ply has not been used for some time, allow the water to flow for several minutes to flush the system.

CAUTION

  1. Do not allow water in the canister housing to freeze.
  2. Remove the filter before using anti-freeze to winterize the system or chlorine solution to sanitize the system.
  3. Flush canister housing thoroughly before it is put back into service after winterizing or sanitizing.
  4. For best results replace filter every 6-12 months.
  5. Do not use carbon cartridges where water is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality.
  6. The maximum operating pressure is 125 psi (8.75 bar).
  7. The maximum water temperature is 125° F (52° C).

Filters should be replaced at the beginning of each camping season or if they have come into contact with contaminated water. When not in use, the water filter cartridge should be stored out of freezing temperatures. RV antifreeze will damage the water filter cartridge. Filter locations will vary by model. They are typically located in a compartment behind the utility center (if so equipped).

To Replace the Canister Filter Cartridge

  1. Turn off water supply using two valves located on the water lines on each side of the canister. The water pump should be OFF.
  2.  Place drip pan below filter housing to catch any spillage.
  3. Press the red button on top of the filter housing to release pressure.
    Jayco Embark 2023 Starting the Generator User Manual 03
  4. Using a spanner wrench, rotate the filter housing. Unscrew the housing completely, dump water out and remove the filter (dispose of the old filter properly).
  5. Clean the inside of the filter housing with mild detergent. Thoroughly rinse and wipe clean.
  6. Remove the O-ring from the groove in the housing and wipe clean. Coat with petroleum jelly.
  7. Replace the O-ring in the groove, making sure it is properly seated.
  8. Install the new filter cartridge.

    Sanitizing the Plumbing System

    When to sanitize:

    1. When your motor home is new.
    2. At the beginning and end of each season.
    3. When the water system becomes contaminated
    4. Every three months of use.

    Preparing to sanitize

    Prepare a chlorine solution using 1/4 cup of household bleach (sodium hypochlorite solution) to one gallon (3.785 liters) of water in a container. Prepare one gallon of solution for every 15 gallons of tank capacity. This will result in a residual chlorine concentration of 50 ppm in the water system and should remain in system for at least 4 hours.
    If a 100 ppm concentration is prepared, use ½ cup of household bleach with one gallon of water. One gallon of the solution should be used for each 15 gallons of tank capacity. Allow to remain in system for at least 1 hour.

    NOTE:
    Freshwater tank sizes vary by model. Contact your dealer or customer service for your specific tank size.

    How to sanitize:

    1. Level the motor home and drain the freshwater system (see Draining the Fresh Water System).
    2. Close all low point drains, including the drains for hot/cold water lines at the utility center (Fig 2).
    3. Turn water supply OFF to canister water filter (Fig 3). The valve is located behind the utility center panel. Remove the filter cartridge from the water purification system canister (Fig 1), re-attach the empty canister. See Water Purification System for ad-ditional information on removing the filters. Turn the water supply valve (Fig 3) ON. Chlorine should be kept out of the water filter.
      NOTE: Filter should be replaced at the beginning of the camping season or if they have come into contact with contaminated water.
    4. To sanitize the fresh water tank: Open the water tank compartment of the RV. Remove the cap from the tank water fill and pour the sanitizer solution into the freshwater tank. Replace the cap.
    5. Fill the fresh water tank using one of the following methods:
      • Remove the cap and fill the tank using a water hose. Monitor the water level using the water level guide. When the tank is full, remove the water hose and replace the cap on the water tank.
      • Attach the fresh water hose to a pressurized water source. Connect the other end of the hose to the City Water Inlet. Turn the Tank Fill / City Water valve on the utility center to TANK FILL (horizontal). Turn on the water until the tank is full. When the tank is full, shut off the pressurized water source, disconnect the hose from the water source (first), and then from the City Water inlet.
    6. Turn off power to the water heater. Bypass the water heater. Sanitizer must be kept out of the water heater. Set the bypass valves to the BYPASS position (two supply valves OFF, middle valve ON). The 3 valves are located near the water heater.
    7. Turn Water Pump Backflow Valve ON (when using the pump).
    8. Turn the pump switch ON.
    9. Open the hot and cold water line faucets one at a time (kitchen, lavatory, shower and outside shower) until water begins to flow continuously and a chlorine smell is noticeable. Close the hot and cold water faucets.
      NOTE: The shower hose must be connected to the outside shower.
    10. Turn the pump OFF.
    11. Let the solution remain in the system for at least four hours when disinfecting with 50 PPM residual chlorine. If a shorter time period is desired, then a 100 PPM chlorine concentration should be permitted to sit in the system for at least one hour.
      • NOTE: For complete fresh water tank sanitization, driving your motor home for a short distance will allow the sanitizing solution to splash around all sides of the tank.
    12. After the required sanitization period, drain the chlorine solution from the freshwater system (see Draining the Fresh Water System).
    13. Re-fill the fresh water tank. Verify that the city water valve is in the horizontal (fill tank) position (Fig. 1). Refer to Step 6 above to fill the freshwater tank.
    14. Turn the water source OFF. Set the city water valve back to the vertical (city water) position. The water source should attach to the City Water inlet. Turn the water source ON. The water Pump Backflow Valve should be turned OFF. Open all faucets (including the outside shower) to flush all the water lines with fresh water (the pump is not used for this). The water heater bypass should still be set to BYPASS.
    15. Drain the freshwater system again (see Draining the Fresh Water System). Re-fill the fresh water tank with potable water. Turn the water heater bypass valves to the NOR-MAL position (hot & cold supply valves ON, middle valve OFF) to allow water into the Aqua-Hot water heater. Detach the outside shower hose.

    Lingering Chlorine Taste:
    If a chlorine taste still lingers in the water, flush the water system with a solution consisting of one-quart vinegar to five gallons of clean water. Re-flush as necessary. The vinegar solution may damage the water heater or the water filter, so both must be bypassed again before performing this operation.

    Winterizing the Plumbing System

    Caution
    If the motor home is going to be stored in a non-temperature controlled environment with a risk of temperatures reaching 32°F (0°C) or lower, the demand (power) system with RV antifreeze must be used in the motor home plumbing system as directed in this manual (this would include appliances such as the washer, dishwasher and the residential refrigerator).

    Preparing your motor home for colder weather or storage is very important for most states and Canada. Failure to prepare your motor home may cause water supply lines and the water heater to freeze.
    The motor home should be winterized at the end of the camping season or when the motor home will be exposed to temperatures that will fall at or below 32°F (0°C). Repairs due to freezing are not covered by warranty. A second person will make this job easier. No commodity or product should be added to the freshwater system to ensure freeze protection other than RV antifreeze.

    NOTE:
    Appliances (refrigerator, dishwasher or clothes washer) must be winterized. Refer to the appliance owner’s manual for additional information or contact your Dealer or Customer Service for assistance.

    NOTE:
    The preferred method is to winterize the plumbing system with RV antifreeze. Please read, understand, and follow all instructions before beginning to winterize your motor home.

    NOTE:
    The tank water heater must be drained to prevent damage from freezing. The water heater should be drained and bypassed during the winterization process particularly if introducing RV antifreeze into the plumbing system. DO NOT DRAIN THE WATER HEATER WHILE IT IS HOT OR UNDER PRESSURE! Antifreeze should be kept out of the water heater.

    Winterizing the Aqua-Hot System: Aqua-Hot requires RV antifreeze in the potable water chamber to insure the heating coil is protected from freeze damage. The motor home antifreeze winterizing feature is located in the outside utility center. Refer to the Aqua-Hot owner’s manual for additional details.

    Warning
    Never apply air pressure to the water system with any of the valves in the closed position. Air pressure applied to a closed valve, faucet or low-point drain could potentially damage the seals and cause water leaks. If you have questions, consult with your RV dealer. Using RV antifreeze is the preferred method of winterization.

    • Automotive antifreeze (ethylene glycol) and windshield washer antifreeze (methanol) are poisonous. Never use these products in your freshwater system. These products are harmful and may be fatal if swallowed. Use only RV antifreeze.

    2. Close the fresh water tank drain and all other low-point drains. Include the hot/cold water line drain valves at the utility center (Fig. 2).
    3. The City Water valve should be set to the vertical (city water) position (Fig. 1).
    4. Water heater bypass valves should be set to the BYPASS position. Middle valve is ON and the two supply valves to the water heater OFF
    5. Place the clear hose from the utility center (Fig. 2) into a container of RV antifreeze (requires about 2 gallons). The clear hose is located at the utility center. The dashed circle in (Fig 1) indicates an item behind the utility center panel.
    6. The Siphon valve should be turned so it is in line with the clear plastic hose.
    7. Turn the water pump ON (Fig. 1) and antifreeze will be drawn out of the container and into the water lines as each fixture is opened in the motor home. To aid siphoning, place the antifreeze container on a flat surface approximately 2 feet off the ground.

    Winterizing the Macerator System (if so equipped)

    1. Make sure all tanks are empty.
    2. Pour RV antifreeze into the toilet and down into the black water tank. At the time of printing, the quantity of antifreeze to be put into the black tanks was not determined. Check with Customer Service for proper amount to use.
      • NOTE: Use a container (bucket) for capturing system fluid!
    3. Turn the macerator pump ON.
    4. Run the pump until antifreeze begins to discharge from the dump connector attached to the flex hose.
    5. Turn the macerator pump OFF.
    6. Drain the flex hose by holding it at a sloped angle to drain excess water and return the hose to the storage location.
    7. As an added safety measure, open and drain the Macerator Bypass Valve. Completing the Winterizing with antifreeze
    8. After all of the water lines/appliances have been winterized, turn the pump OFF and disconnect the shower hose from the outside shower.
    9. Turn the siphon valve so it points away from the clear hose (Fig 2). The valve is located behind the large panel on the utility center.
    10. Open the drain valve on the freshwater tank and leave it open.
    11. Add a cup of antifreeze in all the drain p-traps.
    12. Remove the clear hose from the container of RV antifreeze and clean.
      • NOTE: To reduce the chance of contamination, prevent the clear hose from coming into contact with the ground or the water fittings.
    13. Wipe the antifreeze out of the sinks, shower, and toilet using a soft, dry cloth.

    To De-Winterize the Fresh Water System

    Close the fresh water drain valve. Fill the fresh water tank with fresh water and rinse the RV antifreeze from each faucet or appliance that was protected with the RV antifreeze.

    Fill the fresh water tank using one of the following methods:

    Method 1: Connect a pressurized water source to the City Water inlet. The city water valve (Fig 1) should be turned to the Tank Fill position (horizontal). Turn water source ON and fill the tank.

    Method 2: Open the water tank compartment on the DOOR SIDE of the RV. Remove the fill cap from the water tank. Insert a hose (connected to a freshwater source) into the water tank. If there is a drain valve for the tank, it should be turned OFF. Turn the water source ON and fill the tank.
    Turn off and disconnect the water source. Turn the pump ON. Turn the Water Pump Back-flow valve ON. Purge all antifreeze out of the water lines by opening all faucets (including outside shower). Once all the antifreeze is out of the water lines, turn the pump OFF, replace the canister water filter, and sanitize the system as necessary. De-Winterize the Macerator Toilet: Press either button to flush and return to normal condition. De-Winterize the Macerator System: Emptying the black tanks for the first time in the spring, will discharge antifreeze in the macerator pipe and flex hose.

    Water Heater – Tankless

    Your RV is equipped with a tank less water heater. The tankless water heater uses less LP gas than storage tank model water heaters since it only uses energy when hot water is demanded. There is no pilot light to burn when no hot water is needed. The tankless water heater sup-plies an unlimited supply of hot water on demand (once lines are purged of standing water). As hot water is used, the cold water enters the heater. A water flow sensor detects the flow-ing water and automatically ignites the burner. Water circulates through the heat exchanger and is heated to the set temperature. When the tap is closed, the unit shuts down. The tankless water heater does not require an anode rod to prevent corrosion, or a by-pass valve for winterizing. It is not affected by high altitudes.
    The output temperature of the water depends on the temperature of the inlet water AND the amount of hot water that is drawn. If the inlet water temperature is over 65 º F, the tankless water heater will generate water in the range of 105°F to 120°F (on low flame) depending on the water flow selected by the user.

    Operating Tips

    The tankless water heater can be operated in two different ways.

    • Operate like a Tank Water Heater. Turn on the hot water and add cold water to achieve the desired Hot water temperature.
    • Select the desired temperature by adjusting the temperature setting up (^) or down (v). The UCP settings are from 95° (F) to 124° (F). The unit will maintain the set temperature. The recommended and Factory setting is 115° (F) or 46° (C).

  • https://autouserguide.com/embark/jayco-embark-2023-outside-shower-user-manual/
  • Outside Shower

    A handheld shower assembly with both hot and cold water is included for use outside of your recreational vehicle. It may be located in a separate outside shower compartment or at the utility center (if so equipped).

    1. Be sure the water heater is ON and had sufficient time to heat the water.
    2. If dry camping, be sure the 12-volt water pump is ON.
    3. Remove the handheld shower from its holder.
    4. Turn ON the hot and cold faucet knobs, and adjust the water temperature as desired.
    5. To activate the handheld shower turn ON the sprayer head attachment (some models). To turn off the water, always close the hot/cold control (faucet) knobs. The lever on the shower head will not completely stop the flow of water; this is intentional to allow for drain-ing. After the water has been allowed to drain from the shower head, return it to the outside shower storage. Any remaining water in the shower hose will drip or run out; this is not a leak but performs as intended. If you are dry camping, turn the water pump OFF.

    Turning off the water with the shower head lever can also create a condition where the hot and cold water will mix through the outside shower faucet, thereby reducing the temperature of the hot water. It can appear as though the hot water heater is not working properly.

    NOTE:
    The shower head may be removed from the hose so that it will drain faster. If you remove the shower head, be sure to reassemble it prior to stor-age.

    NOTE:
    When putting the shower assembly back into the storage compart-ment, make sure the hose is not pinched or the shower head is positioned in a way it can be damaged.

    Faucets

    The bathroom, kitchen and outside shower faucets operate much the same way as the faucets in your home. Make sure there is sufficient water available and the 12-volt water pump is turned ON before operating.

    NOTE:
    There may be air in the water plumbing lines which needs to be bled out before a steady stream of water comes from the faucet.

    Bathroom Tub / Shower

    Keep the water heater and holding tank capacities in mind when using the freshwater system. The used water will drain into the grey water holding tank.

    1. Be sure the water heater is ON and had sufficient time to heat the water.
    2. If dry camping, be sure your 12-volt water pump is ON.

    Unlike your home, the recreational vehicle does not contain a water pressure balance valve. If someone is using the shower, it is recommended that the fresh water system NOT BE USED until they are finished.

    Warning
    Water temperatures over 125°F (49°C) can cause severe burns instantly there-fore, be careful when using hot water. Always test the water temperature before showering or washing.

    The shower faucet may include a vacuum breaker for the shower.

    There are two purposes for this breaker:

    1. To prevent siphoning water through the hose from another fixture.
    2. To prevent water from being retained in the hose.

    The showerhead DOES NOT have a complete shut-off valve (the complete shut-off is at the faucet). The showerhead may drip slightly in the OFF position after use; this is normal and does not indicate a leak or defect.

    Maintenance
    Refer the manufacturer’s user guide or label instructions for detailed cleaning information. The tub/shower walls are made of ABS plastic material. Use a mild detergent soap and warm water to clean. Do not use gritty or abrasive particle soaps or scouring compounds to clean ABS plastic. Avoid using “Citrus” or biodegradable cleaners which contain “D-Limonene.” They will damage plastic materials.

    Shower Miser

    The Shower Miser is a device attached to your inside shower that helps to conserve water especially when you are dry camping and are restricted to the amount of water available in your fresh water tank and don’t have ready access to a water supply. The device is installed on the incoming water line for the shower and will circulate water from your water heater, back into your fresh water tank until the water in the shower comes up to temperature. This prevents needlessly dumping your limited supply of water while waiting for the shower to heat up.

    Operation
    The device consists of a small valve and a blue plastic “dot” below the shower handle.
    When the small valve (on the Shower Miser) is in the closed (OFF) position, wasted cold water is directed to the freshwater tank. No water will flow through the shower head. The blue “dot” will be dark blue when cold water is running through the shower plumbing. When the water is up to temperature, the blue “dot” will change color from a dark blue to white which indicates the water flowing into the shower is now hot. Turn the small valve the opposite direction (to ON) and turn on the shower valve so water flows out of the showerhead. The color change is obvious so there is no question when the water is at a comfortable temperature.
    As you shower, the small Shower Miser valve can be turned OFF while you use the soap, so water will divert into the fresh water tank instead of down the drain, and it keeps the water up to temperature, so when you turn the Shower Miser valve back ON, you immediately have hot water to rinse with. The Shower Miser system may vary depending on your model.

  • Black Grey Water Holding Tanks

    Water from the sinks and shower flows into the gray water (or wastewater)holding tank. Water from the toilet will flow into the black water (or sewage) holding tank (see Black/Grey Water Holding Tanks).

    Drain Pipes with P-Trap (if so equipped)

    The drain pipes may be equipped with a “P-trap” installed to help prevent odors from escaping into the RV. During travel, water from the P-traps may spill and permit odors into the RV. By adding water and using a RV approved deodorizing agent you will dissolve the contents faster and will keep the drain lines and tanks clean and free flowing. These chemicals are available at an RV supply store or your dealer. Your RV may be equipped with a dry sealing valve that prevents the escape of odors from your waste system and eliminates the need for P-traps. Should the RV drain piping system become clogged, it is important that the dry valve be removed before passing a mechanical cleanout tool through the piping to open the drain. Passing a cleanout tool through the waterless valve may cause damage to the internal seal that may potentially allow sewer gases to escape into the RV interior. The waterless trap can be unscrewed from the water lines. A label has been placed near the location of the waste valve that reads as follows:Jayco Eagle Fifth Wheels 2023 Black Grey Water System User Manual 01

The waterless trap can be unscrewed from the water lines. A label has been placed near the location of the waste valve that reads as follows:

    REMOVE THE WATERLESS TRAP BEFORE USING MECHANICAL DRAIN CLEANING DEVICES

    Sewer Hose Storage

    Depending on your RV model, the sewer drain hose may be stored in an exterior compart-ment marked “Sewer Hose” or it may be located in the hollow square tube bumper. The bumper has removable plastic end caps, and the hose slides inside the hollow bumper.

    Vents

    Vent pipes and vents release air from the grey and black water holding tanks. On most models the exterior vent cap is attached to the roof and must be kept clear of obstructions to perform as intended. On some models, the vent pipe may be part of the drainage system referred to as a “wet vent” where water flows downward as air flows upward in the same pipe. Some models are equipped with a side vent system. On these models this label will be next to the termination valve. This label should not be removed from your recreation vehicle.

    Black Grey Water Holding Tanks

    Dump the gray and black water holding tanks before traveling to avoid carrying unnecessary weight. The weight of the holding tank contents is not calculated
    into the RV cargo carrying capacity. Traveling with full holding tank(s) could cause you to exceed the individual tire ratings and/or the RV GAWR or RV GVWR. Potential damage to suspension components, such as springs, tires and axles, could result. If you are dry camping and cannot immediately empty your holding tanks, reduce your vehicle speed until you reach a dumping station. When connected to the sewer drain line at a campground, keep the black tank drain valve closed until the holding tank is at least ¾ full. This will provide sufficient water to assist in complete draining of the black water holding tank. Repeat as needed.

    WARNING
    Never travel with full black or grey water holding tanks. This not only wastes your fuel but depending on the location of the tank(s), it can affect your tow vehicle handling characteristics.

    CAUTION
    Never leave the black tank drain in the open position continuously when connected to the campground sewer system. Leaving the drain open will allow the liquid to drain out increasing the potential for a blockage in the tank. Keeping the drain in the closed position will prevent debris from accumulating in the tank.

    • Do not add automotive antifreeze or caustic chemicals, such as laundry detergents, into the holding tanks. Although these products may have a deodorizing effect, they may damage the plastic and rubber parts of the plumbing system or the components. Before using the recreation vehicle, or after dumping the grey and black water holding tanks, always add the proper amount of deodorant to the black water tank to prevent odors and help break down holding tank contents (unless winterizing). Follow the deodorant bottle or package instructions. Driving to a disposal site will normally loosen any accumulated waste debris or solids from the sides of the holding tanks.

    Black and Grey Tank Drains

    There are labels on the exterior of the recreation vehicle indicating the location of the grey and black tank drains (also called dump valves). Depending on your model, you may have one or two valves. With one valve, the gray and black tank will release contents simultaneously. With the 2-valve set up, it is recommended that you release the black tank first, followed by the grey tank. This will help rinse and debris from the outlet and sewer hose.

    1. To make drainage easier, level the RV.
    2. Remove the sewer hose housing dust cap and attach the sewer hose (customer sup-plied).
    3. Place the end of the sewer hose into the approved dump station.
    4. Open the black tank dump valve (depending on your model the valve may be located under the RV, or on the utility center). Close the dump valve when the black water holding tank is empty.
    5. Open the grey tank dump valve (depending on your model the valve may be located under the RV or on the utility center). Close the dump valve when the grey holding tank is empty.
    6. Remove, clean and store the sewer hose.
    7. Close the sewer hose housing dust cap. You can locate dump stations throughout the United States and Canada in Woodall’s, Rand McNally Camp Guide, Good Sam Camp Guide, KOA Kamp grounds Camp Guide and various other publications. Some fuel stations also have dump stations. Please contact your RV dealer for assistance in the purchase and installation of a sewer hose or sewer hose extension (if needed).

  • Black Tank Flush

    The black tank flush (no fuss flush) inlet is typically located on the utility center panel (if so equipped) and labeled as “Tank Flush”. For models not equipped with a utility center, the inlet is located on the side of the recreation vehicle. The location may vary depending on your model. Attach a garden hose (connected to a pressurized fresh water source) to the black tank flush inlet. The water goes directly into the black water holding tank sprayer connection, allowing you to remove debris and prevent accumulation. A check valve is incorporated in the plumbing lines to prevent backflow. Flush the black water tank each time the grey and black water holding tanks are dumped or as needed.

    • NOTE: Utility center (if so equipped) valve positions do not affect the tank flush function. It does not matter where they are positioned when operating the tank flush.
    • NOTE: To help insure debris does not clog the tank sprayer orifices, use “TANK FLUSH” every time the waste holding tank is emptied.
    1. Dump the black water tank (see Gray Tank Drain & Black Tank Drain) and leave the black tank drain valve open.
    2. Connect a garden hose from the water supply source to the black tank flush.
    3. With the water source turned ON, flush the black water holding tank until the water running out of the black tank drain valve is clear (not discolored or cloudy).
    4. Disconnect the garden hose and close the black tank drain valve. Fasten the sewer hose housing dust cap back on the tank flush inlet.

    CAUTION
    The black tank drain valve must be OPEN any time there is a hose (water supply) connected to the black tank flush.
    Do not leave any hose (water supply) connected to the black tank flush when it is not in use.

    WARNING
    Do not use the same hose to fill your fresh (potable) water tank that is used for the black tank flush.

    Winterize the Black Tank Flush

    1. Black tank should be empty prior to winterizing.
    2. Rinse the black tank prior to blowing it out with air.
    3. Attach the 4” sewer hose to the dump connector under the RV.
    4. Open the waste gate valve for the black tank (under the RV).
      • NOTE: If the RV has a macerator system, you need to open the bypass valve for the macerator under the RV. This will allow the black tank to drain through the 4” sewer hose.
    5. Attach a garden hose to the TANK FLUSH inlet at the utility center.
    6. Attach the other end of the hose to a pressurized water source. Turn water on.
    7. Flush tank until water appears clear in 4” sewer hose.
    8. Turn off water, disconnect the hose from faucet, disconnect hose from tank flush.
    9. Connect the blowout plug to the Black Tank Flush inlet at the utility center panel.
    10. Colored valves have no effect on the black tank flush inlet.

    14. Disconnect the air hose, compressor and blowout plug.
    15. Close the black tank drain gate valve and close the macerator bypass valve.

    Draining the Spray Port

    With fixtures and drain valves open in the RV to drain the water lines, connect the blue-coiled hose to the brass quick connect fitting at the Spray Port.

    1. Remove the spray nozzle from the other end of the hose.
    2. Hold the open end of the hose near the ground and any water in the line should drain out.
    3. Disconnect the hose from the fitting, and store in the RV.
    4. Close the port cover.

    Winterizing the Spray Port with Antifreeze (if so equipped)Jayco Eagle Fifth Wheels 2023 Black Tank Flush User Manual 01

    1. As you are putting antifreeze into the water lines, attach the hose to the Spray Port.
    2. Have a container close by to capture antifreeze.
    3. Pull the trigger on the spray nozzle until the antifreeze comes out (into the container).
    4. Release the nozzle and disconnect the hose from the port.
    5. Rinse out the hose before storing it.

    Tank Heaters (if so equipped)

    Your recreation vehicle may be equipped with heaters for the fresh, gray, black water tanks and the water lines or drain lines. These heaters will prevent water in the tanks and lines from freezing down to -11°F (-24°C) (contingent on recreation vehicle setup). The larger tank heaters are 120VAC and attach directly to the tanks. The thermostat con-trolled tank heaters will cycle on at 44°F (7°C) and off at 64°F (18°C). Water line or drain line heaters are smaller and operate on +12VDC and will be attached to the water lines or drain lines. The +12VDC heaters stay on constantly. All of the heaters are controlled by a single ON/OFF switch that is typically located on the command center panel or in the bathroom. The switch lights up red when ON and controls the heater circuit.

  • https://autouserguide.com/embark/jayco-embark-2023-toilet-user-manual/
  • Toilet

    Prior to using the sanitation system, it is strongly recommended to flush the toilet several times to release sufficient water into the holding tank. Generally, more water is required only when flushing solids.

    Caution
    It is important to prevent solid waste buildup. Follow the toilet manufacturer’s recommended instructions each time after emptying the black water holding tank. To help prevent toilet blockage, always use RV-grade single-ply toilet paper. Do not flush paper towels, diapers, sanitary napkins, or other foreign objects down the toilet. Do not use chlorine (undiluted) or caustic chemicals, such as laundry bleach or drain opening types, in the toilet system. These products damage the seals in toilets and dump valves.

    The toilet system will perform better when water is run for ten to fifteen seconds after flush-ing to ensure that the waste will proceed to the bottom of the tank. If there is not a sufficient amount of water used during flushing, the waste materials may not evacuate properly from the drain line to the tank. Clogged tanks and pipes could eventually occur. For added convenience and better sanitation system performance, it is advisable to always have four to six inches (10 – 15 cm) of water in the toilet. It is important to add enough water to prevent solid waste buildup. The following guidelines will help to prevent solid waste buildup.

    Sewage (black) tank preparation

    1. Release one to two quarts (1 or 2 liters) of water into the toilet bowl.
    2. Follow the directions on your (approved RV) toilet chemical bottle (customer supplied), by placing the recommended quantity of holding tank chemical into the toilet bowl.
    3. Flush the toilet and allow at least two gallons (8 liters) of water to flow into the holding tank.

    Cleaning and Maintenance

    The toilet should be cleaned regularly for maximum sanitation and operational efficiency.
    For detailed information refer to the manufacturer’s operator manual.

    Climate Control System

    All controls for the heating/cooling climate control system are incorporated into the touchscreen system. For specific operating instructions for heating/cooling controls, refer to the the-touch screen user guide included in your warranty packet or online at http://www.fireflyint. com.
    The air conditioner/heat pump heats and cools from a single unit. The heating unit will not replace a furnace for heating your motor home in cold weather. It is designed to warm the coach during cool or mild temperatures. Both the heating and cooling units are controlled by a single thermostat which is controlled through the Vegatouch screen.
    In the cooling mode, the temperature drop from inlet to supply will be 15 to 20 degrees. In the heating mode, the temperature rise from inlet to supply will be 25 to 40 degrees unless the outdoor temperature has dropped sufficiently to cause the freeze switch to activate. In that case, the rise will be only 10 to 20 degrees. Any deviations from these norms are caused to examine the system for dirty air filters or outdoor coil. Parking the vehicle in a shaded area, keeping windows and doors shut, and avoiding the use of heat-producing appliances in the vehicle will help to reduce heat gain.

    Caution
    Do not operate the heat pump for extended periods of time without the filter installed. Lint, grease, dirt, etc. that are normally stopped by the filter are now accumulating in the cooling coil. This leads to loss of air volume, icing up of the cooling coil, and could result in serious damage to the operating components of the heat pump.

    Maintenance
    The only required maintenance on the heat pump is cleaning and replacing the filters. The filters can be cleaned and reused. It is recommended that filters be cleaned and changed at least every 2 weeks when the heat pump is in operation. Refer to the manufacturer’s manual for important safety and operating information.

    Antenna/Satellite System

    Your motor home may be equipped with one or more of the following:

    Satellite TV Antenna

    The stationary and/or in-motion satellite TV antenna enables you to toggle between satellites while stationary or in-motion using a remote control (if you subscribe to multi-satellite programming).

    NOTE: All dome satellite systems are motorized single dish / single LNB mechanisms. They can only point toward and receive programming from one satellite at a time. The automatic satellite dish is compatible with DISH Network® and DIRECTV® standard definition programming and DISH Network HD programming.

    The following is an overview of the satellite operation and functions. Refer to the manufacturer’s user guide for detailed operating instructions.
    Your unit is preset for DIRECTV receivers. To change this setting, refer to the manufacturer’s operation manual.

    Operating your in-motion antenna

    1. Turn on receiver and television set. The antenna must be connected to a receiver that is plugged into 120 VAC.
    2. Verify that you are getting the receiver’s menu screens on the television. These screens are available with or without the dish finding the signal. Refer to the antenna manufacturer’s operation manual for details of receiver set up.
    3. Turn the power switch on for the antenna. The dish should start moving, making one or two revolutions before it stops to acquire GPS. This can take a few moments or up to 10-15 minutes. Normal operation will be less than a minute.
    4. Once the unit has acquired GPS, the dish will begin its search. The dish will pause on the signal long enough to determine which satellite it has found. If it moves off the signal, it is in an effort to verify the signal and should return to the signal shortly.
    5. After the unit has verified that it has the correct satellite, it will continue to track the signal.
    6. If the vehicle does not move for six minutes, the unit will toggle to its alternate satellite, then toggle back to the primary satellite and “go to sleep”. If the vehicle begins movement in a straight line at 10 mph, the unit will resume tracking mode.
    7.  If you do not have a signal, see “Troubleshooting” during power-up in the manufacturer’s operation manual.

    Read all Instructions for Washer Dryer User Manual

  • Jayco Embark 2023 Modes of Operation User Manual

  • https://autouserguide.com/embark/jayco-embark-2023-modes-of-operation-user-manual/
  • Modes of Operation

    Whether stationary or in-motion during satellite signal acquisition, the unit enters tracking mode. In this mode, the unit will actively follow the satellite as the vehicle travels, even if the vehicle is stationary for the first six minutes. Tracking mode ends when the antenna has finished its search and the vehicle has not moved for six (6) minutes. The antenna will resume tracking mode if it detects movement in a straight line at 10 mph or more. In sleep mode, the unit is at rest. The antenna enters sleep mode six (6) minutes after a successful search if stationary, or six (6) minutes after the vehicle stops moving.

    Recovery from Signal Interruption

    While traveling, the signal will be interrupted when the line of sight to the satellite is blocked. Signal is acquired again after line of sight is restored. If signal is interrupted for more than 15 seconds, the system automatically enters the search routine. The length of time for the TV picture to recover depends on the receiver model you are using.

    NOTE:
    You must drive in a straight line at 10 mph or more when starting to operate in motion.

    Toggle In-Motion

    The satellite antenna will automatically toggle between the primary and alternate satellites for your service provider. For toggling in-motion, you may notice a slight delay in satellite switching which could cause a loss in picture. This is normal. Picture loss should be no longer than three seconds. If the alternate satellite the antenna is trying to toggle to is blocked for more than 25 seconds, the system automatically enters the search routine.

    NOTE:
    Use your on-screen guide to locate your channel rather than “channel surfing”. This will result in smoother operation.

    Operating your SD (stationary) antenna

    1. Turn on receiver and television set. The antenna must be connected to a receiver that is plugged into 120 VAC.
    2. Verify that you are getting the receiver’s menu screens on the television. These screens are available with or without the dish finding the signal.
    3. Turn the power switch on for the antenna. The dish will detect if it is already on a satellite signal. If it detects a signal, the dish will move to check its alternate satellite and then move back to the original satellite signal that is on.
    4. If no signal was detected, the dish will begin its search to locate the primary satellite. Once the dish locates a signal, it will pause long enough to identify which satellite it has located. This may or may not be visible on your receiver’s point dish screen.
    5. After the unit has verified that it has the correct satellite, it will move to check the al-ternate satellite and move back to the primary satellite to complete the search routine.
    6. If you do not have signal, see Troubleshooting in the manufacturer’s owner’s manual.

    NOTE:
    Because the antenna uses information from the last location that it was on a signal, satellite acquisition may take longer if the dish is inactive over long distance traveling.

    NOTE:
    DIRECTV must be set to the “two” satellite, oval dish setting. Refer
    to your receiver manual. DISH Network receivers must have the check switch set to “SW64”.

    Satellite Dish
    The following is an overview of the automatic multi satellite TV antenna operation. For detailed operating and receiver set up instructions, refer to the manufacturer’s user guide.
    When you press “POWER,” the antenna will automatically begin searching for satellites. The instructions assume that the antenna is already in the stowed position.

    1. Press and hold “POWER” for two seconds or until the TRAV’LER interface displays “POWER ON.” Once the unit has been powered on, release “POWER.
    2. The interface screen will display the type of satellite dish on the top line.
    3. The antenna will enter the search mode as part of its normal operation and will display “Searching” on the bottom line.
    4. The antenna will find its home position and begin to look for a satellite. Upon finding a satellite, the antenna will fine-tune or “peak” on the signal.
    5. In automatic search mode, the antenna will lock onto three different satellites: 99°, 101°, and 103°. The antenna will display an asterisk for each satellite found.

    If the receiver is already set up in the RV, you are now ready to watch TV.

    NOTE:
    If you want to turn off the power to the antenna after it has locked onto satellites, press “POWER” and “SELECT” at the same time.

    Before traveling, make sure to press “POWER” and wait for the antenna to start to power up; then press “POWER” again to initiate the stow sequence.

    User Menu for Manual Operation

    The interface includes a user menu for some advanced features. The options most commonly used are the ability to change the dish type, check software/hardware versions, change desired satellite configuration, or manually move the dish.

    Warning
    Improper use of the user menu could cause damage to the antenna and/or vehicle. Do not enter the user menu for regular operation.

    The antenna is not meant for use while traveling. To stow the unit for travel, press “POW-ER” one time. The unit will stop what it is doing and return to the stowed position. The interface will not turn off unless the antenna is successfully stowed. Visually inspect that the antenna is in the stowed/travel position before traveling.

    Fabric – Drapes and Valances:

    Dust occasionally with a vacuum and soft brush attachment. It is recommended the fabric be professionally cleaned if it becomes stained or soiled. The professional cleaner should be made aware the fabrics that may have been treated to be fire-resistant.

    Window Shades

    Shades should be vacuumed periodically to remove dust. Using your vacuum cleaner’s upholstery brush on low suction will remove most dust and dirt from the shade. Refer to the shade manufacturer’s owner’s manual for additional and detailed information. To remove stuck on dust or stains refer to the following guide.

    Solar Shields:
    Use a sponge or soft brush and water to remove stains. A mild cleaning solution can be used to remove tougher stains. Rinse after cleaning by wetting a clean cloth in fresh water, wringing our any excess and wiping the areas where the cleaner was used.

    Day/Night Shades:
    Clean with a mild cleaning solution using a sponge or paper towel. Wipe down with water after cleaning and dry thoroughly before raising the shade. Do not use spot remover, household cleaners or detergents to remove soiled spots, as these may cause damage to fabric or loss of color from fading.

    Mini Blinds:
    A simple dry rag may do the trick. If they are especially dirty, you can use cold or warm water to clean them; never use hot water.

    Fill a spray bottle with water and a tiny amount of soap. Then spray a lint-free towel with the mixture and use the towel to wipe down each slat. While cleaning, try not to bend the slats. They can also be soaked in a bathtub to loosen up any debris so the slats can be wiped down easily.

    Roller Shades:
    Clean by using soapy water or a mild cleaning solution on spots. Try a small area first because harsh household cleaners or detergents may cause damage to fabric or loss of color. It is recommended to dust the rails and fabrics of the shades on a regular basis. Shades should be kept in the closed or up position when not in use to maintain pleat retention and minimize dirt and soil build-up.

    NOTE
    If your recreation vehicle must be stored for an extended period of time, store shades in the up position and cover your windows with additional protection (I.E. Cut out cardboard).

    Cabinetry and Tables

    To keep hardwood doors, cabinet fronts and hardwood tables looking like new regularly dust with a soft cloth dampened with a cleaning polish or mild detergent solution. Avoid using ammonia based products or silicone oils as they may cause damage if used over a long period of time.
    The finish is durable and resistant to most household spills. However, spills should be wiped up promptly to avoid potential problems. Excessive prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, high temperatures and high humidity can cause damage to both the finish and the wood itself.

    Interior Wall Panel

    To clean, use a mild solution of soap and lukewarm water with a soft sponge or cloth. Wipe dry with a soft, clean cloth.
    Putty sticks can be used to cover scratches on the wood surface wall panels. These can be obtained from local hardwood stores and lumberyards. Contact your dealership service department for assistance in repairing décor paneling.

    Caution
    Do not use abrasive cleaners as they may cause the vinyl to scratch and become dull. Do not use cleaners that contain bleach

    ABS Plastics
    Dust and wipe clean with a soft, damp cloth or chamois, wiping gently. Do not use gritty or abrasive particle soaps or scouring compounds to clean ABS plastic. Avoid using “citrus” or biodegradable cleaners that contain “D-Limonene” as they may damage plastic materials.

    2. Lift table top back up to the bracket.
    3. Hold the table top at an angle (A).
    4. Push the table top back toward the wall.
    5. The bracket should latch, put the table top to a level position.

    Free Standing Dinette Chairs (if so equipped)

    Do not allow occupants to occupy the free-standing dinette chairs while the motor home is in transit. Two free standing chairs and two folding chairs are included in the free standing table/chair package. When traveling in the motor home, the free standing chairs should be fastened securely at the dinette table, and the folding chairs be secured in a closet or storage area.

    Pantry or Hutch (if so equipped)

    Your recreation vehicle may have a pantry or hutch that you can use for storage. Make sure all items stored in the pantry or hutch are secured to prevent shifting during travel. This cabinetry has been designed to accommodate the normal camping items which may be bulky but not necessarily heavy. Remember your recreation vehicle’s load capacity is designed by weight, not volume, so you cannot necessarily use all available space. If your pantry or hutch has sliding pantry shelves, they have been equipped with a locking mechanism to keep them in place during transit. To secure the shelf in place, push it all of the way in until the latch tab clicks into place. Always pull out slightly on the shelf to make sure that it is stationary and secure in the transit position. To release the shelf, push in on the tab and pull the shelf slowly towards you.

    WARNING
    Your RV’s load capacity is designated by weight, not by volume, so you can-not necessarily use all available space when loading the vehicle. Do not exceed your GVWR and ensure you are loading the vehicle as evenly as you can for the best possible handling. Ensure heavy items are secured so they do not shift during travel.

    Countertops

    To prevent permanent damage

    1. Always use hot pads or trivets under hot pans, dishes, or heat producing appliances.
    2. Heat will damage countertops.
    3. Use a cutting board to prevent unnecessary damage to the countertops. Do not cut directly on the countertop.
    4. Avoid harsh chemicals such as drain cleaners, oven cleaners, etc.
    5. Do not let cleaners with bleach set on the top. Wipe them off promptly.
    6. Run cold water when pouring hot/boiling water into the sink.
    7. Use coasters under all glasses, bottles and cans.
    8. Do not store toiletry products directly on your countertop surface. Hair products, perfumes, colognes, nail products, creams, lotions and potions have a tendency to spill or leak and go overlooked. Even though the counter top is sealed, a substance that remains on the surface for an extended period may stain the countertop.

  • Flooring

    Vinyl Flooring (if so equipped)

    Periodically vacuum or sweep to remove dirt and gritty particles. Although most common spills will not permanently stain the vinyl floors, they are usually easier to remove if wiped up before they set. Blot with a paper towel and wipe clean with a damp cloth. Do not use dish detergents or vinegar and water because they will dull your floor.
    To care for the vinyl floor covering, use a damp mop with water and a mild cleaner on the entire floor. DO NOT SOAK THE FLOORING. Use care to avoid wetting the carpet edges. To avoid problems of “yellowing” linoleum, the flooring manufacturer recommends avoid-ing cleaners that contain oil based solvents (i.e. lemon oil, Murphy’s Oil Soap, etc.).

    Ceramic Tile (if so equipped)

    Vacuum the ceramic floor tiles regularly to remove dirt and other gritty particles, then damp mop or sponge with an all-purpose, non-oil based cleaner. Heavily trafficked tile may re-quire more intensive cleaning. Refer to the manufacturers guide or contact a cleaning pro-fessional for detailed cleaning information.
    Grout, the material used between the tiles is porous, and sealing it will simplify maintenance in the future. The ceramic tile manufacturer recommends applying a sealer at least twice a year for maximum stain protection. Sealers may be purchased at most local home centers or floor-covering stores.

    DO NOT:

    1. Use cleansers containing acid or bleach for routine maintenance.
    2. Use wax cleaners, oil-based detergents or sealants to maintain your tile (sealants may be used on grout joints and natural stone).

  • During cold weather

    Salt and other chemicals that are spread on winter roads in some geographical areas can have a detrimental effect on the recreation vehicle’s underbody.
    If your recreation vehicle is exposed to these conditions, spray the underbody with a high-pressure hose every time you wash the exterior of your recreation vehicle.
    Take special care to remove mud or other debris that could trap and hold salt or moisture. After washing your recreation vehicle, wipe off all water drops from the rubber parts around the slideout and doors.

    NOTE:
    When the slideout or door is frozen, opening it by force may tear off or crack the rubber gasket that is installed around the slideout or door. Pour warm water on the gasket to melt the ice (wipe off the water thoroughly after opening the slideout or door). To prevent the weather stripping from freezing, treat it with a silicone spray.

    Waxing

    Wax your recreation vehicle once or twice a year, or when painted surfaces do not shed water well. Use a soft cloth to apply a small amount of wax to the painted surfaces. After the wax has dried, polish the recreation vehicle with a dry, soft cloth.
    Do not wax your recreation vehicle in direct sunlight. Wax it after the surfaces have cooled. Do not apply wax to any area having a flat black finish as it can cause discoloration. If the finish has been stained with wax, wipe off the area with a soft cloth and warm water. When waxing the area around the various openings, do not apply any wax on the weather strip. If it is stained with wax, the weather strip cannot maintain a weatherproof seal around the opening.

    Caution
    Do not use waxes containing high-abrasive compounds. Such waxes re-move rust and stains effectively from the paint work, but they are also harmful to the luster of the painted surface since they scrape off the coating. Further, they are detrimental to glossy surfaces, such as the grille, garnish, moldings, etc. Do not use gasoline or paint thinners to remove road tar or other contamination to the painted surface.

    • Do not use a buffer and a buffing compound as it may damage the exterior surface. Please contact a professional paint body shop for assistance.

    Polishing your recreation vehicle

    If painted surfaces have been severely damaged and have lost their original luster and color tone, polish the surface lightly with a fine polishing compound. Avoid limiting your polishing to the damaged surface only; polish a somewhat wider area, moving the polishing cloth in one direction. After polishing, flush the compound from the surface and apply a coat of wax to regain a beautiful luster.

    Damaged paint

    To prevent corrosion, touch up small cracks and scratches in the paint coat as soon as possible with touch-up film or paint. Carefully check the body areas facing the road and the tires for damage to the paint coat caused by flying stones, etc.

    Cleaning plastic parts

    Use a sponge or chamois to clean plastic parts. Use warm water and a soft cloth or chamois to remove any white residue from dark colored plastic surfaces. Do not use a scrubbing brush, other hard tools, or wax containing abrasives as they may damage the plastic surface.

    Caution
    Do not allow plastic to come into contact with brake fluid, engine oil, grease, paint thinner, or battery acid. These will damage plastic. Use a soft cloth and a mild detergent solution to wipe away any such contact.

    Chrome parts

    To prevent chrome parts from spotting or corroding, wash with water, dry thoroughly, and apply a non-abrasive automotive wax. If the chrome is severely damaged or pitted, use a commercially available chrome polish product.

  • Cleaning The Diamond Shield Surface

    Your motor home is equipped with a protective Diamond Shield surface located on the front lower cap area, hood edges, generator door, under the entry door grab handle and door lock. When cleaning the surface, do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners or detergents. The manufacturer of the Diamond Shield surface does not recommend the use of any of the dry wash types of cleaners as they are intended for non-porous surfaces, and paint protection films are a porous material. Car wash type soap is recommended. Bugs should be washed off as soon as possible. One bug cleaner recommended by Diamond Shield is Bug Magic.

    Use EXTREME care if using a pressure washer, as too high of a pressure or misuse of pressure washer may cut or tear the film. Pressure washer damage IS NOT covered under Diamond Shield’s warranty. The application of ANY products over Diamond Shield such as vinyl bras, banners, etc. will void the Diamond Shield warranty.
    Diamond Shield recommends the use of 303 Aerospace Protectant™ or Protect All www. protectall.com especially before any trips. Both of these products replenish and provide UV screening protection, repel dust, soiling and staining, and should be applied every time you clean the front of your motor home. For minor scuffs Diamond Shield recommends the NOVUS line of products. Diamond Shield recommends Mothers or Maguire’s Liquid wax. DO NOT USE wax designed for specific colors. It is recommended to wax the Diamond Shield surface at least 3-4 times per year and prior to putting your motor home into storage.

    NOTE:
    The use of a protective covering (bra) is not recommended and will void the limited lifetime warranty of the diamond shield protective surface.

    Frame

    Frames receive heavy abuse from road conditions such as sand, pebbles, objects in the high-way, and/or ice inhibiting chemicals, all of which will cause chipping and a blasting effect on the painted surface. Frames will show signs of rust much sooner when exposed to salty air. Periodically rinse off the frame (or as use requires) removing road grime, tar, oil, mud or salt.
    Refer to your Chassis Guide for the chassis manufacturer’s maintenance instructions.

    Mud Flap

    Your motor home is equipped with rear wheel mud flaps and/or a deluxe full-width mud flap, periodically check and remove dirt or debris buildup from the mud flaps.
