Jayco Eagle Fifth Wheels 2023 Refrigerator User Manual
The refrigerator is not intended for quick freezing or cooling. We recommend stocking it with pre-frozen or pre-cooled food when possible. The shelves should not be covered with paper or plastic and the food items should be arranged so air can circulate freely. Keep the area at the back of the refrigerator clean and free of debris. Check for obstructions in the exterior refrigerator vent area (i.e., spider webs, bird nests, etc.). Use a soft cloth to dust off the debris. For optimum efficiency and performance, it is recommended the refrigerator be checked at least twice a year as part of the routine maintenance. For detailed operating and safety information, refer to the manufacturer’s user guide.
Gas/Electric Models (if so equipped)
If you smell propane gas STOP! Follow the directions located in your manufacturer’s owner’s manual and in this manual.
Residential Models (if so equipped)
NOTE: If you are using electricity to power the refrigerator, make sure you are connected to a 120-volt power source.
The ice maker should be turned off and the ice tray emptied when power to your motor home has been shut off. With no power, the ice will melt and water will “pool” in the refrigerator door. When power is restored, the vibration will cause this water to run out of the door and onto the motor home floor.
Cleaning Your Refrigerator
The following are general cleaning guidelines. For detailed information on cleaning your specific refrigerator, refer to the manufacturer’s user guide.
Cleaning the Interior
- Unplug the refrigerator or disconnect the power.
- Hand wash, rinse, and dry removable parts and interior surfaces thoroughly. Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and mild detergent in warm water.
- Inside the refrigerator, use a warm water and baking soda solution consisting of approximately 1 tablespoon (15ml) of baking soda to 1 quart (1 liter) of water. This solution cleans and neutralizes odors. Rinse and wipe dry.
- Leave an open box of baking soda in the refrigerator and freezer to help prevent odors.
- NOTE: Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing petroleum products on plastic parts, interior and door liners or gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh cleaning tools.
There is no need for routine condenser cleaning in normal operating environments. If the environment is particularly greasy or dusty, or if there is significant pet traffic, the condenser should be cleaned every 2 to 3 months to ensure maximum efficiency.
If you need to clean the condenser:
- Remove the base grille.
- Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush to clean the grille, the open areas behind the grille, and the front surface area of the condenser.
- Replace the base grille when finished.
Cleaning the Exterior
Painted metal exteriors: wash with a clean sponge or soft cloth and mild detergent in warm water. Stainless steel exteriors: wash with a clean sponge or soft cloth and mild detergent in warm water. Do not use appliance wax, polish, bleach, or other products containing chlorine on stainless steel. Stainless steel can be cleaned with a commercially available stainless steel cleaner. A spray-on stainless steel cleaner works best. Do not allow the Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish to come into contact with any plastic parts such as the trim pieces, dispenser covers, or door gaskets. If unintentional contact does occur, clean the plastic part with a sponge and mild detergent in warm water. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. For silver-accented plastic parts, wash with soap or other mild detergents. Wipe clean with a sponge or damp cloth. Do not use scouring pads, powdered cleaners, bleach, or cleaners containing bleach as these products can scratch and weaken the paint finish. Replace the base grille when finished.
Washer/Dryer Prep (if so equipped)
If your recreation vehicle was built with washer/dryer prep, be aware the cabinet space provided is intended for the installation of an aftermarket washer/dryer combo unit (customer supplied) only. Please consult your dealer or the manufacturer for installation assistance. A dryer vent opening must be cut into the sidewall of the RV if installing a dryer. A label has been installed to assist you in placing the vent in the correct location. The label will be located in the area where the dryer will be installed. Instructions on how to cut the dryer vent hole and how to install the dryer vent in the wall of the RV are included in your warranty packet.
Gas dryers should NEVER be installed in your recreation vehicle. Dryer prep has been designed for electric dryer operation ONLY.
Do not operate a dryer in the recreation vehicle unless the dryer is properly vented.
Central Vacuum System (if so equipped)
The following is an overview of the central vacuum system operation. For detailed operating and safety instructions, refer to the manufacturer’s user guide.
The central vacuum system installed cleans virtually any surface with no electric cords and has a variety of attachments for many cleaning needs. Make sure you have 120-volt AC power available before operating your central vacuum system (refer to Electrical Systems, calculating electrical load).
To operate the central vacuum system lift the vacuum cover, and attach your vacuum hose and cleaning attachment. The central vacuum will automatically activate. It has a large disposable bag that will need to be checked periodically and replaced after usage. The disposable bag is located inside the exterior cargo compartment.
DO NOT PICK UP ANYTHING THAT IS BURNING OR SMOKING, SUCH AS CIGARETTES, MATCHES, OR HOT ASHES. RV damage, personal in-jury, or death may result from vacuuming up burning or smoking material. DO NOT PICK UP FLAMMABLE OR COMBUSTIBLE LIQUIDS SUCH AS GASOLINE, OR USE IN AREAS WHERE THEY MAY BE PRESENT. RV damage, personal injury, or death may result from vacuuming up flammable or combustible material.
Outside Kitchen (if so equipped)
Typically outside kitchens consist of a 2-burner cooktop, refrigerator and sink. For detailed operation and safety information on the outside kitchen appliances, refer to the manufacturer’s user guide. The cooktop will function more efficiently when level.
The maximum weight capacity of the outside kitchen unit is 50 lbs. Setting items on the kitchen unit that exceed this weight limit could cause damage to the unit or result in personal injury. Outside kitchen access and locking functions may vary depending on your model.
The following applies when using any outside kitchen configuration.
- Make sure all supports are securely in place before using the outside kitchen.
- Before using, make sure the propane connection is properly hooked up and secure.
- Do not leave the cooktop unattended while using.
- Keep all clothing and flammable material away from the cooktop while in use.
- Do not exceed the weight capacity of the outside kitchen unit.
- Disconnect the propane couple before stowing the outside kitchen unit.
- Make sure the kitchen unit is properly stowed and secured, and that the outside kitchen door is securely in place and locked before traveling.
Attaching the “quick coupler” connection
The “quick coupler” is directly connected to the RV propane system. The “quick-coupler” connection has a positive shut-off valve as required by code and standards.
- Place the “quick coupler handle in the OFF position and push back the sleeve. The valve handle must be OFF to make the connection.
- Insert the plug and release the sleeve
- Push the plug until the sleeve snaps forward, locking the plug into the socket.
- Turn the handle ON to allow propane to flow to the drop-in stove.
NOTE: Outdoor cooking warning label should not be removed from the RV.
LP Gas Grill (if so equipped)
Some models may include an LP-fueled BBQ grill in the outside kitchen. This grill is mounted in a pull out drawer. It has a single burner control. It attaches to the LP tank using a quick coupler connection as described above.
NOTE: A drip pan is included with the grill. The drip pan MUST be used underneath the grill to catch hot grease and liquids dripping from the grill and to prevent injury.
The drip pan attaches to tabs underneath the grill at each end. A handle is mounted in the middle of the drip pan to dump the contents. Refer to the manufacturer’s user guide for additional operating and safety details.
- The grill requires proper ventilation. It is designed for RV outdoor use only.
- NEVER put lava rocks or charcoal or anything else on or under the grate. The grill is designed so it does not require those items. Serious injury or property damage can occur by placing foreign objects on the grate.
- Never touch the grate when it is hot. Use the spade (grate handle) sup-plied with your grill.
- Be sure to read, understand and follow all information supplied with your recreation vehicle concerning the use of propane before operating the BBQ grill. The propane hose must be correctly connected before lighting the grill. Failure to follow instructions supplied by the grill manufacturer, or use of any components other than those originally supplied with the grill, could result in death or serious injury.
- If you smell gas: Shut off gas to the appliance; extinguish any open flame; open lid; if odor continues, immediately call you gas supplier or your fire department.
- The BBQ grill is for use outside of the recreational vehicle. Never use this grill inside a compartment or inside of the recreational vehicle. Make sure the grill is pulled completely out of the drawer before attempt-ing to use it.
- Install the drip pan under the grill to catch hot grease & liquids. Failure to use the drip pan can cause personal injury including burns from hot grease.
- The BBQ grill must be COMPLETELY COOLED before storing it. The grill should be cool to the touch before storing. Storing the BBQ grill before it is completely cool may result in serious injury or property damage.
- Do not cover the cooking surface with a dust cover, a lid, foil, cooking utensil or anything else. Covering the cooking surface can cause an un-safe situation and can lead to serious injury or property damage.
