We bought a Jayco Seneca 36FS in January. Overall we're happy with it but there are 2 problems of concern.
The Gray water tank is advertised as 41 gallon capacity in all printed material and on their website for all model years. Our former Class A's all had 40 gallon tanks and with careful showers, washing dishes, etc we could dry camp 4-5 days. We can get 2-2/12 days in this coach. When hubby emptied the tank he decided to do a test and manually poured water down the shower a gallon at a time. When he had poured 32 gallons of water in the tank it started backing up into the shower. That means that the tank is either 9 gallons less than advertised or the tank is not emptying as it is supposed to and it never completely empties. I spoke with a tech at Jayco (not the one I usually deal with) and he denies a problem and tried to tell me that things change and they don't always update the printed or online material.
Well, the website says 41 gallons for model years 2008, 2009 and 2010. You'd think if they figured out it's not 41 gallons they would have updated their website by now
Anyway, he's claiming nothing they can do if it isn't as advertised....RIGHT!
Our service center owner said he's had Holiday Rambler and another brand replace gray water tanks that were "not as advertised" so I know it can (AND WILL) be done if in fact it is not as advertised.
If anyone has a 36FS have you checked to see if you really have a 41 gallon holding tank?
Next issue is the passenger side mirror. We, the owner of the service center and the tech have all driven the coach and said yes there is a problem in visibility with the passenger mirror. The service tech said he drove it cross country but not he claims it's not really a safety hazard because you can see. Our coach the only way you can see is when the arm to the mirror is NOT in the locked position. The tech said well, you can buy a new mirror. I said, NO you can buy a new mirror. IF it's a safety hazard then it's Jayco's responsibility. Both the service manager and the owner sat behind the wheel and said they could see the coach but not the road. That is a serious problem.
Does anyone else with a 36FS have a problem with the safety mirror?
