TOILET DISCOLOURED Posted by: Don STEVEN 27 Mar 2018 6 Replies
My wife left some pine antiseptic sitting in the toilet bowl and it has left it a bit yellow for about 40mm deep. We have tried vinegar, baking soda and bleach and has made little difference. She has left pine antiseptic in it quite a few times with no effect, but this time. We would be happy to consider any suggestions.

Read online yesterday to use a hair produce, peroxide crime, paint on with a brush, cover with cling wrap, seal around the cling wrap with tape and leave for a day or two and Wah off. It works for the yellowing caused by uv also.

Hello Ken, thanks for your information. We will try it and see if it works. DS

We bought peroxide (which was a thick gel) and bleach tablets and it took quite a bit of perseverance to resolve the problem. The peroxide appeared to do less. The bleach tablets were easy to use, just cover the mark with water, drop in a tablet and leave over-night, and keep working on it.
Thanks for the advice.
Toilet DiscolouredPosted by: Coombesplo  Replied on: 1 May 2018
Welcome to the Jayco experience as the discolouring of the toilet wall unit is quite common due to the use of the white translucent roof vent lid which allows UV light to react with the plastics.

As far as the use of peroxide crime goes you need to expose the area to direct sunlight in order for the peroxide to work. I use crime that has 12% peroxide and will leave it on for a few days at a time for maximum effectiveness.

You are best to replace your roof hatch cover with the tinted variety to prevent future yellowing.
TOILET BOWL DISCOLOUREDPosted by: Don Steven  Replied on: 1 May 2018
The bottom sides of the white bowl was discoloured by a chemical antiseptic. Our toilet does not have a wall unit or get sunshine. The translucent lid is over the shower and there is no problem there.
We used 12% Crème Peroxide, there is no sunshine without pulling the toilet out. It probably would have worked with UV exposure. This is our third Jayco and never had a problem before.

Silverline side wall repairs Posted by: Jaycotoy 22 Apr 2018 4 Replies
My silverline was involved in a side swipe collision a week ago that tore off the awning and gouged a long grove in the external wall. The awning can be replaced but I don't know how the grove can be repaired. It is about 12mm wide and about 500mm long and has cut throught to a depth of 5mm. Can this be repaired? If so how?
Repairing fiberglass on caravans is done like they repair boats. Fill the hole sand and then spray paint.Posted by: Bob  Replied on: 23 Apr 2018
S/Line Side WallPosted by: ITrek  Replied on: 25 Apr 2018
Having grown up with F/Glass boats a high quality color matched gel coat repair is very difficult to achieve to non tradesman. One would want it done perfectly, especially to a nice Silverline.
A business outlet like the one listed for your area would handle it easy. In their Service tab under Miscellaneous that say caravans are within there scope of interest. Would just have to check with who ever you get is interested to help you out on a van.
If my link tab format doesn't work like other forums, you should be able to see what I was posting.
Hope posting a link is within forum rules.
Good luck with it all.

Thanks Bob & Garry for your responses. I have found a boat repair firm in my local area (Hervey Bay) and the fellow who came to quote gave me a good description of the repair process which involves filling, patching and sanding and then repainting. Regards, Bob.

SILVERLINR OUTBACK 24.75-3 Wiring Posted by: JohnM320 27 Apr 2018 0 Replies
Picked up my new Outback today and had an auto electrician wire the tug at Jayco Seaford to the new wiring layout (supplied 14 Dec 2017 via a Jayco email) i.e. Anderson plug for fridge and pin 8 for 12V supply of ESC, house battery and tow secure battery (other pins basically the same as earlier jayco wiring diagram supplied on the back of the sales document) . My van was not wired to the new standard when I picked it up i.e. the caravan plug had no wires in pin 8 and pin 2 was still connected with a black 3 mm2 wire. So in fact I would have had now ESC power if it wasn't for the fact that I asked the auto electrician to leave my Tugs pin 2 still connected. Jayco Seaford are looking into this and have advised thus far that the vans manufactured in 2018 are coming out of Jayco HQ with two different configurations (old way (prior Dec 2017) and new way from Jan 2018), they physically inspected some in their yard and the wires are different cross sectional areas for the same vans (go figure Jayco HQ). Please be aware as the wires change dimensions and pin location for the 12V supply for the ESC, house battery and tow secure battery (basically pin 2 (small pin so low amps) moves to pin 8 (larger pin higher amps) and increases cross sectional area from 3 to 5 mm2. Maybe some wire over heating issues are a possibility?? Jayco are going to let me know how they are going to address this issue (possibly rewire my van with new correct wires)

Silverline Downlight Removal Posted by: Lande 11 Apr 2018 4 Replies
What are the tips to remove one of these lights? Any knowledge on the matter.
SILVERLINE DOWNLIGHT REMOVALPosted by: Gscoug  Replied on: 16 Apr 2018
We have a 2016 Silverline 21-65-3, to remove the downlight, gently prise off the lens with a small screwdriver (the lens is held in place by three clips). This will then expose the mounting screws. The light is a surface mount.
I'm looking at replacing the light above the door with a switched light, as its on the same circuit as the light over the dining table.
Doiwnlight RemovalPosted by: Lande  Replied on: 23 Apr 2018
Thanks Gscoug for that info, thought that might be the way but your advice most welcome. We have the same year van. Hmmm, you are thinking like me. The table overhead light is a great light but spoilt by the door downlight. Yep a light with a switch would be nice, but not sure of the wiring at this point. If you advance please let me know how you go! Thanks again for your info. Cheers
Downlight ReplacementPosted by: Gscoug  Replied on: 24 Apr 2018
Lande, Yep agree that the overhead table light is spoilt by the door light and in our opinion also the light in the wine cupboard, I don't know what the thinking was when Jayco wired the three to the same circuit. I replaced the downlight over the door with a Narva 87500 which has a touch sensitive switch in the lens. Works a dream. Also while I was at it I disconnected the light in the wine cupboard ,although you could put another 87500 in there if you still wanted to have the ability to light that cupboard. We now have the ability to choose either or both the light over the door and the light over the table, much better in our opinion. The overall circuit is still from the usual light switch. The only downside to the Narva 87500, if you are worried about appearance, is it has a white bezel which can easily be fixed with a can of chrome spray paint. Cheers

Hail Storm Test Posted by: Rover2 18 Apr 2018 3 Replies
We had the displeasure of being caught in a hail storm at Port Stephens NSW on Saturday night. After expecting extensive damage to our van it turns out that the new construction with the fibreglass is hail resistant. Every van in the park with the aluminium cladding looked like a cheese grater (Without the Holes) but the fibreglass construction seems to have suffered no effect from the hail. The car was a bit worse for wear but at least we only have to make one insurance claim instead of two. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

I have been through a number of hail storms with our old Sterling and no damage other than a broken lens on the courtesy light. Got a pleasant surprise from our insurer when we insured the new Starcraft and got a 10% discount for the fibreglass sides.

Hey Rover2, That's a great result for the fibreglass. Hope the Insurance companies see the benefit instead of the worst scenario. Cheers

Removing contact Paint Posted by: Colo 19 Apr 2018 3 Replies
Hi
Recently when lining up to get petrol and positioning the van, I scraped one of the bollards protecting the petrol pump while it did not damage the vans aluminium cladding it did leave some yellow paint from the bollard. I did try rubbing off the yellow paint with a very fine Gelcoat polish and while it did get some of the yellow off it is very slow, is there something faster I could use that will not damage the white finish on the aluminium panel ?
Removing Contact PaintPosted by: Stumpy   Replied on: 20 Apr 2018
Hi Colo
If it was my van and I was sure the side of the van was painted aluminium I would try Mineral Turps on a cloth and lightly rub the yellow paint it should dissolve the yellow paint without affecting the White Paint under the yellow wash off the affected area when finished. "Do Not Use Paint Thinner " If this doesn't work then you might have to use a light cutter and then polish. Hope this is helpful for you , Stumpy.

Be very carefull as the paint will polish off very easy, its not very thick and any harsh thinners or paint cleaner or polish will take the original paint off, as I once found out.

Nail polish remover with acetone in it will do it. Don't rub too hard and there won't be any effect on the paint.

Limited Truck platform option with Jayco motorhomes 8 metres plus Posted by: Jefft 16 Apr 2018 1 Replies
Why is Jayco now only offering a limited Truck platform option with Jayco motorhomes? The Optimum is not available with 4 birth and passenger options and is eliminating the Mercedes Sprinter, and Conquest only offer Fiat in this configeration. Why isn't the Mercedes Sprinter and Ford Transit with the 5 cylinder diesel available as these vehicles provide better service options nationally as Fiat is limited to the east coast and Perth with questionable dealer service outlets. The Mercedes Sprinter and Ford Transit offer rear wheel drive which gives better traction in sticky situations and with 4 birth option would be more reliable and a better motorhome. The Fiat platform are good when new but have too many issues as kilometres increase. Jayco are forcing traditional Jayco buyers to other brands, can someone in Jayco head office consider as Jayco are forcing me and others to go elsewhere.
