We finally took delivery on our new 2004 Jazz XL 3100RL on Friday. That ended up being an all day affair. Got to the dealer at 11:30am for our appointment and the delivery guy rushed us through the inspection and showing us how the systems worked. I will be spending time reading the owners manual. The little things that we pointed out that needed to be fixed had not been done, so the technicians were hustling to get them fixed. My fifth wheel hitch was set two inches to low and the delivery guy was trying hard to get my TV and the 5er to hook up with the trailer being nose down. The Reese 20K hitch would not lock up so he told me to drive it off the lot and find some tools to adjust it. I looked at him like he was crazy and said for the charged cost for the delivery inspection they could get a technician to come over and adjust it.
When it was said and done at the end of the day, it was one of the technicians who was the most helpful. He made sure my wife and I had our new rig hooked together properly. He explained how the hitch worked, made sure we did a pull test and then checked all of the lights. He even took a look at our brake controller and leveled it and set the initial brake power. I got to fine tune it on the way home.
It still has a few bugs. The slide room switch had bad contacts so I will have to take it to the manufacturer to get it fixed. After I got it home, I saw some bubbles on the side of the roof and there was a tear in the roof where it comes together at the roof and sidwewall. Not real happy about that. I did not see that with the early morning sun light shinning on it. I guess I will call the dealership on Monday about that one. All aside, i cant wait to get my new rig on the road and to a local campground for our maiden camping trip. Will stay close to home until we become comfortable with setting up and operating our new rig. I did learn that my wife is better at backing up our truck and conecting to the king pin than I am. Took her two tries. I think i was at a disadvantage with the misadjusted hitch. LOL
Still, I'm glad to have my new toy and will post pics as soon as i take some. Will let you all know how the maiden voyage went.
