Sphere Wireless Lighting turns then off again Posted by: Ortongeoff@gmail.com 23 May 2018 0 Replies
If your lighting develops the syptoms, where a particular channel has a solid green light on the controller and the light switch turns the light on then off again. Then the channel has gone into pulse mode rather than toggle mode ( normal).
To fix disconnect the plug from the unit and while plugging back in hold down the channel button then release it when the LED flashes orange. Repeat the process for any other channels that may have gone into pulse mode. Channel are now back in default toggle mode

Drum brake shoes Posted by: Killtrassy  Replied on: 23 May 2018
Outbacks have 12" drums so the brake shoes will need to be the one's to fit that drum. Jayco use Alko brake drums so the repairer will have to source the ones to fit 12" Alko drums. If the drums and magnets are worn also it is cheaper to replace the whole unit which can be purchased ready to put straight on. Saves a lot in labour costs.
Outback brakesPosted by: Groove1  Replied on: 23 May 2018
My 2011 OB expanda has 10 inch drums. I recently replaced the 4 backing plate assemblies (2 left and 2 right). You can buy these for around $70 each if you are not worried about using standard magnets. I rang the supplier who extensively deals in trailer parts, he advised that off road magnets are only required if you are traveling 100's of k's on corrugated roads. He would supply off road magnets but they would be genuine Alco and double the price of the assemblies. Have done around 5000 km's with about 60 km of corrugated road but no problems so far.

Regards
How to find correct sizePosted by: Groove1  Replied on: 23 May 2018
The Drum size should be indicated on the face of the brake drum itself. You will have to remove a wheel. Mine were indicated in Millimeters that you can convert to inches. eg 10 inch drum will require 10 inch pads.

Overflowing water tanks. Posted by: Cybersnas 28 Apr 2018 7 Replies
I manage a caravan park and one of the guests has a Silverline and the water tanks are overflowing while it is connected to the mains. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Posted by: Jeepers  Replied on: 28 Apr 2018
Do you mean the mains feed is filling the tanks and o'flowing? The tanks are filled by an inlet that is separate to the mains connection. The mains connection feeds into a black pipe - you should follow this until you find how it is filling the tanks.
Posted by: Jeepers  Replied on: 28 Apr 2018
Check the tanks under the van. You will see water filling via the hoses so follow that back to the source. Failing that, get them to go to the local Jayco dealer who should be able to help. Good Luck!

Sounds like your one way valve is going two ways.
Overflowing TanksPosted by: Killtrassy  Replied on: 29 Apr 2018
Short term fix would be to turn off the water tank tap under the van to the 12 0'clock position.You could also just use your 12 volt pump and forget about the mains supply until you sort it out. Sounds like the water is coming back through the 12 volt pump. Maybe fit a one valve between the tanks and the pump.
Posted by: MicMac1  Replied on: 29 Apr 2018
same van, same problem. non return valve on 12 V pump not functioning correctly. Just fitted another one way valve in line, after pump before connection to van, no more issues. Hope this helps.
Overflowing tanks Posted by: Henryd  Replied on: 30 Apr 2018
Hi I had the same problem, the temporary fix was to put a 1/2 inch cap on the suction side of the pump before the inlet filter. Shutting off the tank valve just pressurises the pump suction line which cannot take the mains pressure. With mine I could not fit the extra check valve as there is no room ended up installing a new pump and overhaul the old one for a spare. I also now use a pressure reduction valve at the park tap as this takes the pressure of the connection hose and the plastic connections to the caravan before the van pressure reduction valve, this works well especially when a park has high water pressure I used a 350kpa valve. Regards Peter
Overflowing Water TanksPosted by: Ortongeoff@gmail.com  Replied on: 23 May 2018
Your non return valve in the water pump is failing, which is a common occurrence. Buy a $20 no return valve from Jayco and place it on the outlet side of the water pump. The only tools needed for this is a pair of snips to cut the pvc line the valve snaps in to the line.

No that is normal . You will probably notice when on solar there is a different blink sequence and colour I think. The blink sequence can also be used as a fault finder .

Jayco to comment on posts Posted by: Kitfox1111 16 May 2018 12 Replies
I noticed that Jayco don't involve themselves in the forum. There are numerous unanswered posts (including my own) from people with genuine enquiries and in some cases concerns.
I would think it would be in Jayco's interests to respond where unanswered questions are in relation to their product.
Lets here it Jayco, where do we get these answers.
KitfoxPosted by: Dave scott  Replied on: 16 May 2018
This is a free forum for travel tips on the official Jayco site and not for answering questions. It is not for Jayco to make comments however many people use this forum for questions and they are answered by others not Jayco. There are other forums for owners of all brands to ask questions. If you can't find a solution contact your local Jayco dealer. Hope this answers you question.

I stand bye my comments re Jayco responding. Regardless of the name, it is essentially a forum designed to ask and answer questions. All questions are in regards to Jayco products so whats the problem.
Posted by: Mundy  Replied on: 17 May 2018
Jayco's apparent failure to get involved doesn't surprise me in the least. Inexplicably to me, they appear unwilling to deal directly with their customers. After driving to Broome and back from Sydney shortly after getting my new camper a couple of years ago, I wrote a 3 page letter with comments on the good and the bad and suggestions for improvement. No response or acknowledgement. After a month I sent them a serve by email expressing my disappointment. I received an email response denying receipt of the letter. I then sent it again, this time by email. Again no acknowledgement or response.
I didn't expect them to necessarily agree with all my comments but having taken the time to provide feedback I expected, perhaps naively, some form of acknowledgement or even thanks.

Well obviously the forum is not about Jayco answering your questions as the name Travel Diary implies have you rang / emailed Melbourne with your enquiries, maybe best to go straight to the head office / warranty section, I did and got results straight away

I agree with Dave Scott, this travel diary would turn into a Wingers Diary if Kitfox1111 had his way. Have a think about it Kitfox. You would get all the wingers and people just causing unrest clogging up the system and people with genuine tips and questions to other owners no getting a look in.

I'm not sure I understand what football players (wingers) have to do with forum commentry.
In the 2 years I've been on this forum, I can't remember seeing a generalised travel diary comment. It is again incredulous to me that Jayco could have expected this forum to be anything than it already is - that is, a dedicated place for Jayco owners to seek help from other owners for problems with their vans or to provide helpful information.
Given Jayco's extreme reluctance to deal directly with their customers, it is hardly surprising that they don't get involved in forum discussions. This would start something they couldn't finish easily.
Travel DiaryPosted by: Groove1  Replied on: 18 May 2018
Sorry about the spelling Mundy, spelling and keyboard skills aren't the best. Anyhow you are right, they could never finish it and would probably end up with closing the whole thing down. The travel diary has been a great help to me and others I assume, I would hate to see it go.

Jayco HQ has never dealt directly with Jayco owners to sell their products, so you need to go to the dealer you purchased the van from. This forum is put up by Jayco for the benefit of owners to discuss stories with
other Jayco owners. Let me remind you Jayco HQ closed this forum down before because of wingers like you

There's a world of difference between criticism and whinging, Bob.
Like Groove1, I would hate to see this forum close.
I didn't intend to imply that Jayco should be involved in responding to posts on this forum but merely noted that their reluctance to assist is hardly surprising for the reasons given.

Unfortunately this is a situation where Jayco (the company) can't win. I see many people complaining on various forums about their RV complaining "Jayco this and Jayco" that when in most cases they are talking about a Jayco dealer, not the company.
Many of theses complainants don't read their manuals and if they have a complaint seem to approach the company or their dealer in an aggressive manner. I'm sure there are real problems and justified complaints but expecting to solve them on a public forum is unrealistic.
I've had a lot of interactions with Jayco (the company) with various problems I've had and have in every case have had them fixed, not always quickly mind you. But they did get fixed.

Trip to Tassie Posted by: S&A 15 May 2018 2 Replies
Thinking of touring around Tassie for about a month from early November2018 . We've heard there are plenty of free camps around the Island, anyone been there lately that could provide feedback.

Visiting TasmaniaPosted by: Jaycotoy  Replied on: 21 May 2018
There are numerous free camp opportunities in Tassie. We spent 6 weeks there from late February this year. We found 6 weeks was OK for sight seeing but allowed no time to sit ans relax or to indulge in any serious trout fishing. You would be wise to allow at least 2 months. The free camps were quite busy while we were there. Security wasn't a problem. Many people left their caravans to go sight seeing, sometimes overnight. Some 'free camps' are not free but the charges are very modest ($10 per night at Geeveston but well worth it for clean modern showers & toilets, dump point and water available). Some have no facilities at all. Caravan parks generally good.

Hi,
You will not have any trouble either way, just top up at each servo you see.
We did it to both places in a Territory towing a Jayco Journey OB last year.
We carried a jerry can but never used it, just peace of mind.
Cheers,
