Jayco Eagle Fifth Wheels 2023 Bunk Beds and Bunk Ladders User Manual
Bunk Beds and Bunk Ladders
Your recreational vehicle may be equipped with bunk-style beds. Bunk bed weight ratings may vary depending on your model and the style of the bunk bed. Weight capacities are listed on the bunk capacity label. Do not exceed the bunk weight capacity.
Bunk Ladders (if so equipped)
Your recreational vehicle may be equipped with a ladder to access the upper bunk. This ladder may be a separate steel ladder or a wooden ladder attached to the bunk beds.
The top of the ladder is secured to the ladder storage compartment. To operate the ladder, lift up and out of the storage tray. Pivot the bottom of the ladder out. Be sure the ladder is securely in place on the floor before climbing to the upper bunk. When storing the wood ladder, place the bottom of the ladder back into the tray in the storage compartment. This keeps it secure during transport and clear of walkways. The steel ladder (if equipped) will simply hook onto the upper bunk.
Some types of bunk beds do not include a ladder.
- Exercise extreme care when entering or exiting the bunk beds and using the ladder.
- Do not allow more than one person on the top bunk.
- Do not allow children under 6 years of age to use the upper bunk.
- Do not allow horseplay on or under the bed and prohibit jumping on the bed.
- Make sure the ladder is anchored properly to the bed.
- Never allow more than one person on the ladder at a time.
- Children should always be supervised when using the ladder or when entering or exiting the bunk beds.
- The weight limit of the bunk ladder is 300 lbs. (136 kg). Never exceed this weight.
- Maximum weight limits for bunk beds will vary depending on the model or bunk style. Never exceed the maximum weight specified on the bunk capacity label.
- Failure to follow these instructions can result in serious bodily injury.
Cleaning The Exterior
To protect your recreation vehicle’s exterior finish, wash it often and thoroughly. You may wash and wax your new recreation vehicle 60 days after purchase. The exterior paint needs time to cure before any wax is applied to the exterior surface. Careful maintenance for the first 60 days will assure a long-lasting durable finish.
Your RV is exposed to many environmental conditions that have an adverse effect on the paint finish:
- Road Salt and Sodium Chloride
- Road Tar / Bugs
- Bird Droppings / Tree Sap
- Industrial Fallout / Acid Rain/Pollution
- UV Exposure and Moisture
The most common problems resulting from these conditions are corrosion, staining, and chemical spotting. Generally, the longer the foreign material remains in contact with the exterior finish the more extensive the damage. These problems can be minimized by regularly scheduled washing and polishing. Wash your recreation vehicle as soon as possible if it becomes contaminated with foreign material. Avoid parking under trees or near ocean sea salt. Ice or snow should be brushed off, not scraped, from the painted surface. Avoid gravel roads. Anti-freeze, gasoline or washer solvents if spilled on the painted surface should be rinsed off with water immediately. Bugs and bird droppings should be rinsed off daily.
Commercial washing should be avoided. Wash with cold water using a mild liquid soap. Dry wiping with a dry cloth is not recommended.
Make sure the RV’s surface temperature is cool, under 90 F, and out of direct sunlight. A shaded area is ideal for washing your vehicle as direct sunlight causes water spotting. Use a mild soap, detergent or car wash shampoo. Try to avoid combination wash-n-wax products as these waxes can cause build-up and are designed for smaller surfaces. Have two dedicated sponges or wash mitts: one for the paint finish and one for the wheels and undercarriage. Brushes or wash mitts made of plastic bristles are acceptable for use on tires and wheel wells but are not intended for use on the paint finish. Avoid using such items on painted surfaces as they will damage the finish. Wash the wheels and wheel wells first as this removes heavy dirt and debris and prevents it from splattering on panels. Wet the entire area down to remove loose dirt and grime, then hand washes one area at a time using your dedicated paint finish sponge or wash mitt. Wash from the top and work your way down, rinsing frequently to minimize grit abrasion. Follow with a final rinse of water. This process will remove most contamination from the RV’s surface.
For stubborn stains such as road tar or bug stains, use an ammonia-based glass cleaner or a small amount of rubbing alcohol on a damp cloth followed immediately by warm soapy water, and rinse with clean water. This may not dissolve the road tar, but it will loosen tar and bug stains and remove them from the surface.
Do not use solvent-based cleaners on bird droppings or tree sap as these are water-based stains. They can be dissolved using an ammonia-based glass cleaner, warm soapy water, and a little “elbow grease”. After removing stubborn stains immediately rinse with clean water. Drying the RV is just as important as washing it. Tap water and well water contain many chemicals that could water stain your RV’s finish. We suggest using a damp natural or synthetic chamois. There are other drying products such as lint-free micro-fiber towels that work just as well.
