This manual has been provided by Jayco, Inc. for the sole purpose of providing instructions

by Jayco, Inc. is as set forth in the limited warranty applicable to this vehicle.
The owner’s failure to provide required service and/or maintenance could result in the loss

WARNING:
V Review the compatibility of your tow vehicle with the trailer you will be
towing. You, as the owner, are responsible for the safety and
compatibility of your tow vehicle and trailer selections.
V You must not exceed the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the
trailer. Include all additions, cargo and tank fluids when calculating
the weight of your trailer.
V Do not exceed the towing or cargo capacity of your tow vehicle. You
must clearly understand how your tow vehicle’s capacities are
calculated.
V Do not load your trailer so that it is unbalanced from front to rear or
from side to side.
V Know your loaded hitch weight and select a hitch that is adequate for
that weight. Consult your hitch and tow vehicle manufacturers with
any questions before you tow your trailer.
V You are responsible for the maintenance of your tow vehicle and trailer.
Make sure your tow vehicle is mechanically sound for your intended
usage. Pay particular attention to suspension components, tires and tire
pressure.
V We recommend the use of sway control devices and weight distributing
hitches with all Jayco towable products (excluding fifth-wheels, which
use a different type of hitch).
V Obey all traffic laws and use your seatbelts at all times. Many states
have lower speed limit requirements for tow vehicle/trailer
combinations. We recommend that you do not exceed 55 MPH when
towing a trailer.
Consult an expert for specific driver education when towing a trailer. There are private RV
driving schools, and some RV clubs, which offer driving seminars as part of their club
activities. Recreation vehicle publications and the Internet can be a source of information
regarding RV driver education, as well as many other topics to help you learn to safely use
your recreation vehicle.

world of camping and leisure in a grand style. Your Jayco RV has been designed and
engineered to offer many comforts of home to make your camping experience as enjoyable
as possible. Jayco RVs are designed, constructed, warranted and intended to be used as
temporary living quarters for recreational, camping and travel uses, as defined in the
bylaws of the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association. Our recreation vehicles are not
intended for hauling of cargo.
This owner’s manual will assist you in understanding the RV’s proper use and operation. If
you are a newcomer to RV travel, you will appreciate the suggestions and “shop talk”
information found throughout this manual.

vehicle and how it operates. The information in this manual reflects the most current
available to us at the time of publication. This manual is a supplement to various other
instructions supplied by the manufacturers of separately manufactured and warranted
component parts. Carefully read, understand and follow this owner’s manual and all
information supplied by manufacturers of components. This information contains
important operating, safety, and maintenance instructions. Direct questions that are not
answered by the owner’s manual or other booklets, to your independent, authorized dealer.
If they cannot satisfactorily answer your questions, they will call or refer you to the
component part manufacturer or Jayco.
Your vehicle was manufactured based on the applicable requirements of:
•
•
•
•
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards
State Regulations
Canadian Standards Associations (CSA) (where applicable)
Requirements of ANSI Standard A119.2, the nationally recognized Standard For

compliance with installation and safety standards for those systems.
Periodic safety inspections and a program of preventive maintenance are necessary for the
continuation of safe and trouble-free operation.
Camping is a great way to relax and enjoy the outdoors with your friends and family. Please
remember to tread lightly on our beautiful land and leave only your footprints so that others
may enjoy nature as much as you did.

TOWABLE LIMITED WARRANTY
WHAT AND WHO IS COVERED
The Jayco warranty covers this recreational vehicle (“RV”), when used only for its intended purpose of recreational travel
and camping, for two (2) years. The warranty period begins on the date that the RV is delivered to the first retail purchaser
by an independent, authorized dealer of Jayco, or, if the dealer places the vehicle in service prior to retail sale, on the date
the RV is first placed in such service. In the event that a substantial defect in material or workmanship, attributable to
Jayco, is found to exist during the warranty period, it will be repaired or replaced, at Jayco’s option, without charge to the
RV owner, in accordance with the terms, conditions and limitations of this limited warranty.
This limited warranty applies to the first consumer purchaser, and the next subsequent owner, only. This limited warranty
may be transferred once during the warranty period. However, the subsequent owner must submit a warranty transfer
form to Jayco to make the warranty transfer effective. You may contact an independent, authorized dealer for details. All
rights and limitations within this warranty are applicable to the original owner and the subsequent owner of the RV. The
subsequent owner’s warranty coverage period is the remaining balance of the warranty coverage period that the prior
owner was entitled to under this limited warranty.
Jayco’s obligation to repair or replace defective materials or workmanship is the sole obligation of Jayco under this limited warranty. Jayco reserves the right to use new or remanufactured parts of similar quality to complete any work, and to
make parts and design changes from time to time without notice to anyone. Jayco reserves the right to make changes in the
design or material of its products without incurring any obligation to incorporate such changes in any product previously
manufactured. Jayco makes no warranty as to the future performance of this RV, and this limited warranty is not intended
to extend to the future performance of this RV, or any of its materials, components or parts. In addition, the RV owner’s
obligation to notify Jayco, or one of its independent, authorized dealers, of a claimed defect does not modify any obligation placed on the RV owner to contact Jayco directly when attempting to pursue remedies under state or federal law.
LIMITATIONS, EXCLUSIONS AND DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES
ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY THAT IS FOUND TO ARISE BY WAY OF STATE OR FEDERAL LAW, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF
FITNESS, IS LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE DURATION SET FORTH IN THIS LIMITED WARRANTY
AND IS LIMITED IN SCOPE OF COVERAGE TO THE SCOPE OF COVERAGE OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. Jayco makes no warranty of any nature beyond that contained in this limited warranty. Jayco does not authorize
any person to create any other obligation or liability for it regarding this RV, and Jayco is not responsible for any representation, promise or warranty made by any dealer or other person beyond what is expressly stated in this limited warranty,
and no one has the authority to enlarge, amend or modify this limited warranty. Any selling or servicing dealer is not
Jayco’s agent, but an independent entity.
JAYCO SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES THAT MAY
RESULT FROM BREACH OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY OR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY. THIS EXCLUSION OF CONSEQUENTIAL AND INCIDENTAL DAMAGES SHALL BE INDEPENDENT OF ANY
FAILURE OF THE ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY WARRANTY, AND THIS EXCLUSION SHALL SURVIVE ANY DETERMINATION THAT THIS LIMITED WARRANTY OR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY HAS
FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or
consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

HOW TO GET SERVICE
To obtain warranty service the owner must do all of the following:
1. Notify an independent, authorized dealer of Jayco, or Jayco, of the substantial defect in material or workmanship attributable to Jayco, within the warranty coverage period designated above;
2. Provide the notification mentioned in (1), above, within ten (10) days of when the owner discovered, or should have
discovered, the substantial defect in material or workmanship attributable to Jayco;
3. Promptly schedule an appointment with and take the RV to an independent, authorized dealer of Jayco, or Jayco, for
repairs; and
4. Pays any freight or transportation costs, import duties, fees and all incidental expenses associated with obtaining warranty service.
For warranty service, simply contact one of Jayco’s independent, authorized service centers for an appointment and then
deliver your RV to the service center on the specified appointment date. If you need assistance you may contact Jayco, at
P.O. Box 460, Middlebury, Indiana 46540, Attn: Aftermarket Service, (574) 825-0608, or http://www.jayco.com.
NOTE: Jayco does not control the scheduling of service work at the independent, authorized dealerships. You may encounter some delay in scheduling or completion of work. Also, you must notify the selling dealer at time of delivery to
have work performed on any defect that occurred at the factory during manufacture at no cost to you as provided by this
limited warranty. (See below under WHAT IS NOT COVERED).
If two (2) or more service attempts have been made to correct any covered defect that you believe impairs the value, use or
safety of the RV, or if it has taken longer than thirty (30) days for those types of repairs to be completed, you must, to the
extent permitted by law, notify Jayco directly, in writing, at the above address, of the unsuccessful repair(s) of the alleged
defect(s) so that Jayco can become directly involved in making sure that you are provided service pursuant to the terms of
this limited warranty.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED
By way of example only, this Limited Warranty does not cover any of the following: defects in materials, components or
parts of the RV not attributable to Jayco, items that are added or changed after the RV leaves the possession of Jayco; additional equipment or accessories installed at any dealership, or other place of business, or by any other party, other than
Jayco; any RV used for rental or other commercial purposes (Note: It shall be concluded that the RV has been used for
commercial and/or business purposes if the RV owner or user files a tax form claiming any business or commercial tax
benefit related to the RV, or if the RV is purchased in a business name); any RV not used solely for recreational travel and
camping; normal wear, tear or usage, such as tears, punctures, soiling, mildew, fading, or discoloration of exterior plastic
or fiberglass, or soft goods, such as upholstery, drapes, carpet, vinyl, screens, cushions, mattresses and fabrics; the effects
of condensation or moisture from condensation inside the RV; mold or any damage caused by mold to the inside or outside
of the RV; imperfections that do not affect the suitability of the RV for its intended purpose of recreational use or items
that are working as designed but that you are unhappy with; problems, including water leaks, related to misuse, mishandling, neglect or abuse, including failure to maintain the RV in accordance with the owner’s manual, or other routine
maintenance such as inspections, lubricating, adjustments, tightening of screws, tightening of lug nuts, sealing, rotating
tires; damage due to accident, whether or not foreseeable, including any acts of weather or damage or corrosion due to the
environment, theft, vandalism, fire, or other intervening acts not attributable to Jayco; damage resulting from tire wear or
tire failure; defacing, scratches, dents, chips on any surface or fabric of the RV; damage caused by off road use, overloading the RV or alteration of the RV, or any of its components or parts; wheel alignment or adjustments to axles when caused
by improper maintenance, loading or damage from road hazards, including off road travel, wheel damage or balancing or
damage from tire failures.
In addition, this limited warranty does not cover any material, component or part of the RV that is warranted by another
entity, including, by way of example, handling, braking, wheel balance, muffler, tires, tubes, batteries, gauges, generator,
jacks, inverter, microwave, television, VCR, CD player, tape player, radio, speakers, television, refrigerator, range, water
heater, stove, carbon monoxide detector, smoke detector, furnace or any air conditioner. (Note: The written warranty provided by the manufacturer of the component part is the direct responsibility of that manufacturer).
Defects and/or damage to interior and exterior surfaces, trim, upholstery and other appearance items may occur at the factory. These items are usually detected and corrected at the factory or by the selling dealer prior to delivery to the retail customer. You must inspect your RV for this type of damage when you take delivery. If you find any such defect or damage
you must notify the selling dealer at time of delivery to have these items covered by this limited warranty and to have work
performed on the items at no cost to you as provided by this limited warranty.

EVENTS DISCHARGING JAYCO FROM OBLIGATION UNDER WARRANTY
Certain things completely discharge Jayco from any obligation under this warranty and void it. By way of example, the
following shall discharge Jayco from any express or implied warranty obligation to repair or replace any defect that results
from: any rental or other commercial use or purchase of the RV (as defined in this warranty), any defect in a separately
manufactured component part, owner neglect or failure to provide routine maintenance (See Owner’s Manual), unauthorized alteration, off road use, collision or accident, whether or not foreseeable, including any acts of weather or damage or
corrosion due to the environment, theft, vandalism, fire, explosions, overloading in excess of weight ratings, and
tampering with any portion of the RV.
LEGAL REMEDIES
Any action to enforce any portion of this limited warranty, or any implied warranty, shall be commenced within six (6)
months after expiration of the warranty coverage period designated above. Any performance of repairs shall not suspend
any limitation period from expiring. Any performance of repairs after the warranty coverage period has expired, or performance of repairs regarding any thing excluded from coverage under this limited warranty shall be considered “good will”
repairs, and they will not alter the express terms of this limited warranty, or extend the warranty coverage period or this
limitation period in this paragraph. In addition, this warranty is not intended to extend to future performance, and nothing
in this warranty, or any action of Jayco, or any agent of Jayco, shall be interpreted as an extension of the warranty or this
limitation period. Some states do not allow a reduction in the statute of limitations, so this reduction may not apply to you.
WARRANTY REGISTRATIONS:
Your warranty registration records should be completed and delivered to the manufacturers of component parts. The selling dealership will assist you in completing and filling out the Jayco product warranty registration form. That form must
be returned to Jayco within ten (10) days of your taking delivery of the RV. Your Jayco warranty will not be registered unless this warranty registration is completed and received by Jayco. Failure to file this warranty registration with Jayco will
not affect your rights under this limited warranty as long as you can present proof of purchase, but it can cause delays in
obtaining the benefits of this limited warranty, and it may inhibit any servicing facility’s ability to provide proper repairs
and/or part replacement.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
It is the Owner’s responsibility to perform proper care and maintenance of the RV, and to assure correct load distribution.
For details regarding this, please see your Jayco owner’s manual and the owner’s manuals of other component part manufacturers. These outline various care and maintenance that is required to maintain your RV. Please review all manuals supplied with your RV, and contact your selling dealership or supplier of the component part if you have questions. Note:
Failure to maintain the RV as noted in those manuals voids this limited warranty, and any damage to the RV as a result of
your failure to perform such care, is not covered by this limited warranty.
THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS
THAT VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.

SUMMARY OF LIMITED WARRANTY:
Jayco provides extended limited warranties on the tent, frame, floor, lifter system, and roof of folding camping trailers
as outlined below. Jayco warrants that all parts of our manufacture are free from substantial defects in materials and workmanship during the warranty period under normal use and service, when used for its intended purpose of recreational
travel and camping. The warranty period shall begin on the date the vehicle is sold to the first retail consumer purchaser or
subsequent transferee or, if the dealer prior to sale first places the vehicle in service, on the date the vehicle is first placed in
such service.
This warranty may be transferred one time only within a two (2) year period from the date the vehicle is sold to
the first retail consumer purchaser or, if the dealer prior to sale first places the vehicle in service, on the date the vehicle is first placed in such service with proper application.
Lifter System
(1) Jayco extends to the original consumer purchaser and subsequent transferee, a limited warranty on the lifter system against functional defects in material or workmanship for the lifetime of the folding camping trailer.
(1A) Exclusions:
Normal adjustments to the lift system (such as periodic roof height adjustment to compensate for stretch in cables)
are covered by this warranty for the first year only.
The installation of a roof air conditioner or any other cargo CANNOT exceed 350 pounds. Exceeding this limit
voids the warranty provision on the lift system. Do not lift roof with any load in place and always unlock all roof
latches before raising.
Any damages resulting from alterations to the lift system.
Any damages caused by improper maintenance, improper repair, improper use or by use of improper repair parts.
Steel Frame
(2) Jayco extends to the original consumer purchaser and subsequent transferee, a limited warranty on the steel frame
against functional defects in material or workmanship for the lifetime of the folding camping trailer.
(2A) Exclusions:
This lifetime provision does not include the frame surface, axle beam, suspension or running gear components.
Floor/Bed Platforms
(3) Jayco extends to the original consumer purchaser or subsequent transferee, a limited warranty on the floor against
functional defects in material or workmanship in the structural integrity of the floor for the lifetime of the folding
camping trailer. Jayco extends to the original retail purchaser, a limited warranty on the bed wood against functional defects in material or workmanship for the lifetime of the folding camping trailer and applies only to the
structural integrity of the bed wood.
(3A) Exclusions:
Functional defects in the vinyl floor covering are covered for the first year of ownership only. The vinyl floor covering is NOT warranted against gouges, cuts or tears. Repair or replacement of the vinyl floor covering will be the
sole remedy for defects.
Roof
(4) Jayco extends to the original consumer purchaser or subsequent transferee, a limited warranty on the roof against
functional defects in material or workmanship for the lifetime of the folding camping trailer.
(4A) Exclusions:
This warranty provision for the roof does not include maintenance, surface finish, re-sealing, or damage due to the
installation of non-standard equipment. NOTE: Snow loads must be removed from the roof to avoid damage to the
roof. All roof seams and moldings must be resealed (cap sealed) at least once each year.
Tent Material
(5) Jayco extends to the original consumer purchaser or subsequent transferee, a limited warranty on the tent material
for five (5) years from the date of retail purchase against functional defects in material or workmanship on the
folding camping trailers. During the first two years, parts, labor and freight are covered. During year three, four
and five, parts, Jayco factory labor and return freight from Jayco are covered. Dealer labor to remove and reinstall the tent plus shipping costs to Jayco is not covered. (In simple terms, you send it to us, we will fix it and send
it back during year three, four and five).
(5A) Exclusions:
The tent is not warranted against fading, discoloration, soiling, leaking due to contaminants, mildew from condensation or storing tent when wet, or problems resulting from misuse or abuse. Rips, tears and damage caused by insects and/or rodents are not covered under any warranty.

Warranty/Service
COMPANY’S OBLIGATIONS:
If the manual lifter system, steel frame, floor or roof is determined to have a functional defect in material or workmanship during the warranty term, Jayco will remedy the defect without charge for parts or labor, within a reasonable time after receipt of notice, either by repair or replacement at Jayco’s sole option. Coverage for the tent is for the pro-rated
duration as noted in Policy 5 of this warranty. Warranty service may be obtained from Jayco or its authorized dealers, or
repair centers designated and authorized by Jayco or its dealers. In the event the purchaser discovers a functional defect in
the manual lifter system, steel frame, floor or roof, and has one of those components repaired by an unauthorized service
person and said repairs are covered by this Warranty, Jayco shall be liable only for costs of those repairs up to the amount
that Jayco would have incurred if Jayco or an authorized dealer had made the repairs. Warranty performance will commence within a reasonable time after Jayco’s receipt of notice of the defect and will be completed within a reasonable
time, subject to availability of parts and scheduling.
ITEMS EXCLUDED FROM WARRANTY:
This warranty does not cover defects caused by:
(A) Negligence in operation and maintenance.
(B) Misuse
(C) Damage not resulting from defect or malfunction (act of God)
(D) Any damage caused by alterations or additions to original equipment.
(E) Claims relating to unauthorized repair, damage or defects.
(F) Commercial or residential use.
PURCHASER’S OBLIGATIONS:
Purchaser shall give notice on this warranty within ten days after discovery of the defect to either an authorized Jayco
dealer or Jayco. Notice should contain the name and mailing address, proof of date of purchase, model, year and serial
number of the unit, name and address of the selling dealer and a description of the defect. All costs incurred by Purchaser
in transporting the Jayco folding camping trailer for warranty service shall be borne by Purchaser. No action to enforce
this Warranty shall be commenced later than three (3) months after the expiration of the warranty period.
DISCLAIMER OF CONSEQUENTIAL AND INCIDENTAL DAMAGES:
You and any other user of Jayco products shall not be entitled to any consequential or incidental damages,
including without limitation, loss of use of the unit, inconvenience, lodging, damage to personal property, phone
calls, meals, lost income or earnings. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other
rights, which vary from state to state.
DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES:
Jayco does not authorize any person to create for it any other obligation or liability in connection with this vehicle. Any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose applicable to this vehicle is limited in duration to the duration of this written warranty. The performance of repairs is the exclusive remedy
under this written warranty or any implied warranty. Jayco shall not be liable for incidental or consequential
damages resulting from breach of this written warranty or any implied warranty. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty will last or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so
the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
PARTS AND DESIGN CHANGES:
Jayco may make parts and design changes from time to time without notice and repairs or replacements may be made
with new or different parts. Jayco reserves the right to make changes in the design or material or its products without incurring any obligation to incorporate such changes in any product previously manufactured.

Safety
Safety in Using Propane
We recommend that all work on the propane system be performed by your independent,
authorized dealer. The following information is provided to give a basic understanding of
propane.
Your recreation vehicle is equipped with a propane system to help provide some of the
comforts of home. This system is very dangerous. Proper handling of propane, knowledge
of your system and routine maintenance are key factors to your safety and that of others
around you. The following list provides basic information for propane safety:
• Propane is heavier than air. Leaking propane tends to flow to and pocket in low areas,
such as the trailer floor.
• Propane is colorless and odorless. A chemical odorant, smelling similar to rotten
eggs, is added by the propane manufacturer to make sure leaks are identifiable, which
can normally be smelled if there is a leak.
• Never light a match or allow any open flame in the presence of leaking propane or
the smell of propane.
• Turn off propane while refueling the tow vehicle.
• Some states prohibit propane appliances to be operated during travel, especially in
tunnels. Make sure you know the laws for the areas where you travel.
• Never allow propane containers to be filled above the liquid capacity as indicated on
the container. If a container is overfilled, liquid propane may flow through the
regulator causing it to freeze and/or create dangerously excessive pressure in the
lines. Make sure that an overfilled container is taken care of by a propane
professional before it is put into service.
• An overfilled container placed in sunlight may expel excess propane through the
relief valve. This causes susceptibility to ignition by nearby open flame.
Safety
Taking time to become educated about propane and how it should be handled are critical to
your camping experience. If you have questions, consult with your independent,
authorized dealer or propane professional.
Checking for Leaks
Propane is both colorless and odorless. For your safety, a chemical agent is added by the
propane manufacturer, which smells similar to rotten eggs. If you are not accustom to the
smell of propane, ask your independent, authorized dealer or propane service personnel to
help you and your family become familiar with it.
Vibration from travel can cause connections to loosen. This requires that the propane
system be checked periodically for leaks. The system has been tested by the manufacturer
and Jayco recommends that the independent, authorized dealer test the system as well.
However, continued maintenance is recommended for safe operation.
TO LEAK TEST THE PROPANE SYSTEM
• Use an appropriate propane detector solution, or create a soapy water solution. If
soapy water is used, make sure that the soap used does not contain ammonia or
chlorine.
• Apply the solution to all propane piping connections.
• If a leak is present, the soap will bubble at the connections.

Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer
Safety
I
WARNING: DO NOT USE A FLAME OR LIGHTED MATCH TO
TEST FOR LEAKS.
IF A LEAK IS DETECTED
•
•
•
•
Turn off all appliances which utilize propane.
Make sure that everyone is out of the RV, including pets.
Turn off the propane at the cylinder(s).
Take your RV to your independent, authorized dealer and have the system repaired
before using it again.
I
WARNING: WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU HAVE A
PROFESSIONAL TEST YOUR PROPANE SYSTEM FOR LEAKS
ONE TIME EACH YEAR AS PART OF NORMAL MAINTENANCE.
Carbon Monoxide Detector
Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless, tasteless propane that is extremely
dangerous to humans and animals. The following symptoms are indicative of individuals
exposed to carbon monoxide:
Symptoms of Carbon Monoxide Exposure
Mild
Medium
Extreme
Headache
Fatigue (often described as “flu”
like symptoms)
Unconsciousness
Running nose
Dizziness
Convulsions
Sore eyes
Drowsiness
Brain damage
Nausea
Confusion
Cardio respiratory failure
Vomiting
Fast heart rate
Death
I
DANGER: Any amount of exposure to CO is dangerous and must be
taken care of before reentering the RV. If anyone develops symptoms as
listed, make sure that everyone gets to an area of fresh air. Failure to do
so could result in death or serious injury.
A carbon monoxide detector has been installed in your RV. It is designed to detect the
presence of CO. It is not designed to function as a detector or alarm for other gases such as
propane, fire or smoke. Information has been supplied by the carbon monoxide detector
manufacturer for operation, safety and maintenance. Make sure that you read, understand
and follow all information supplied by the CO detector manufacturer with your RV.

Safety
Electrical System Safety
Circuit breakers and fuses are installed to protect electrical circuits from overloading. Do
not make unauthorized changes to circuitry or add fixed appliances. If you wish to make
changes, consult your independent, authorized dealer and they will assist you in obtaining
a safe installation.
An approved power cord has been supplied with the vehicle. Always use this cord for
hook-up to 120-volt shoreline power. The cord has a three pin plug, which provides proper
grounding through the third (round) pin. Grounding is personal protection from electrical
shock.
I
WARNING: Do not use an adapter, cheater, or extension cord that will
break the continuity of the grounding circuit connected to the third pin.
NEVER remove the grounding pin to connect a non-grounded,
two-prong receptacle. Any deviation from this will potentially cause a
fire from overheating.
Water System Safety
The following warning label is placed on the exterior of your trailer at each water tank
inlet. Make sure you read, understand and follow this label and all applicable instructions.
I
WARNING: POTABLE WATER ONLY. SANITIZE, FLUSH AND
DRAIN BEFORE USING. SEE INSTRUCTION MANUAL. FAILURE
TO COMPLY COULD RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY.
Fire Extinguisher
A fire extinguisher is installed in each vehicle and is located near the entrance door in the
trailer. Be familiar with its location, operating instructions as printed on the extinguisher
and any material from the extinguisher supplier or manufacturer. It is too late to become
familiar with an extinguisher when an emergency is at hand.
The fire extinguisher is a dry chemical, nonrefillable extinguisher. Do not test this
extinguisher by partially discharging. Doing so will cause loss of pressure making the
extinguisher unusable. The extinguisher must be discarded and replaced by a new one if
any use has occurred.
INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE
To insure that your fire extinguisher will be ready when needed:
• Read and follow all instructions on label and in owner’s manual.
• Inspect the extinguisher AT LEAST once a month - more frequently if exposed to
weather or possible tampering.
• Check pressure by pressing in white indicator button. If button does not spring back,
extinguisher will not work properly and must be discarded.
• Be sure the yellow lock pin is firmly in place.
• Keep the extinguisher clean. Check for dents, scratches, corrosion or any other
damage.
• Check the discharge nozzle. Make sure it is clean and free of obstructions.
18
Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer
Safety
I
CAUTION: Under certain fire and heat conditions, the dry chemical
powder in this extinguisher (and similar units) will cause damage or
prove extremely difficult to remove from oven surfaces, including
self-cleaning models. Do not use self-cleaning feature to remove ABC
Powder.
I
CAUTION: Avoid inhaling the dry chemical agent contained in the
extinguisher. It is not toxic, but may cause skin irritation. In case of
contact, flush affected area with clean, cool water. If irritation persists,
contact a physician immediately. Chemical name of agent is printed on
extinguisher label.
Changes, Modifications and Additions
Your RV has been built/designed with a specific floor plan and equipment. It is
recommended that you do not make changes, modifications, alterations or additions to
your unit. If any changes or additions are made after delivery of your trailer to you, it may
cause a hazardous condition. Consult your independent, authorized dealer before making
any changes, modifications, alterations or additions. Only qualified technicians should
attempt to make changes or additions to the RV, using only approved materials, component
parts, and employing approved methods of installation, which meet safety and code
requirements.
I
CAUTION: Any installation not properly performed, or that does not
meet the criteria of the manufacturer’s specification or code
requirements, may damage the RV, including component parts and
VOIDS THE WARRANTY on the RV.
I
WARNING: Improper installation of equipment to your trailer creates
potential for a hazardous situation and personal injury. Make sure that
a qualified RV technician performs modifications if you choose to make
them.
Safety When Emergency Stopping

Additional Safety Considerations
I
WARNING: For traveling safety, it is extremely important to read,
understand and follow the towing, hitching and loading cargo
information provided in the “Before You Travel...” chapter. If you do
not understand the information provided, please consult your
independent, authorized dealer.
• Sanitize the fresh water supply system periodically (see sanitizing instructions).
• Prevent water connections from coming in contact with the ground or drain hose to
reduce chance of contamination.
• Have a certified RV technician repair and maintain the propane or electrical
appliances.
• Always have a serviceable fire extinguisher placed in an easily accessible location.
• Carefully read the loading section in the “Before You Travel...” chapter related to
your trailer.
• Ensure that the tires are in good condition and properly inflated. Monitor the tire
pressure closely for proper inflation. Neglecting to do so could result in overheating
of a tire, which could result in a blowout.
• Check and tighten the wheel lugs after the first 10 miles, 25 miles and then again
after 50 miles (16, 40 and 80 kilometers). Check periodically as described in the axle
manufacturer’s owner’s manual thereafter.
• Check the brakes in a safe area - not while traveling on a busy highway.
• Always block the trailer wheels solidly before unhitching from the tow vehicle.
• Never move the unit while people are inside.
• Before leaving a camping area towing a trailer, refer to the “Preparing to Travel
Home...” chapter and review all applicable instructions.
• Observe the warning labels attached to your vehicle concerning propane, water,
electricity and loading.
• Observe the maintenance chart in this manual and all applicable information supplied
by component part manufacturers related to your respective unit.
COLD WEATHER/EXTENDED USE
Your trailer has been built for enjoyment in a recreational manner. It is not intended to be
used as full-time living quarters.
Caution: Continuous living in your trailer could cause accelerated wear and
damage to component parts. It also voids the warranty.
• Use of this trailer during cold weather will require more protection. Using skirting or
insulation below floor level will provide additional protection if you are camped in
one area for an extended period.
• Proper care should be taken with the fresh water and drainage systems to avoid
freezing problems. Consult with your independent, authorized dealer or RV supply
house for advice on heat tapes, etc.
20
Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer
Safety
• Adequate propane and electrical supply is needed along with protection from possible
freeze-ups on the propane regulator. The furnace will substantially increase battery
draw and propane use.
• During cool weather usage, ventilation or the addition of a dehumidifier may be
required to reduce condensation. See the next section for important information on
controlling condensation.
CONDENSATION
Condensation is a natural phenomenon. The amount of condensation will vary with the
climate conditions, particularly the relative humidity. Condensation occurs because there
is water vapor present in the air, which is added by breathing, bathing and cooking. The
water vapor collects where there is available air space, and when the temperature reaches
the ‘dew point’ the water vapor in the air condenses and changes to liquid form. Most
people have experienced a similar phenomenon when moisture forms on kitchen windows
and bathroom mirrors during cool weather.
Proper ventilation and, if needed, the use of a dehumidifier will assist in controlling the
condensation. Many RV and marine dealers carry small dehumidifiers especially sized for
recreation use. Condensation causes dampness, mildew, staining and if allowed to
continue at high levels, damage to the paneling and wood structures. It is the owner’s
responsibility to make sure that condensation is properly removed from the air.
INSURANCE
As with your automobile, it is important that you protect yourself and others with insurance
coverages for personal liability, theft, collision, property damage, etc. Your independent,
authorized dealer can assist you in obtaining appropriate insurance for your protection or
you may check with the company which provides your automobile insurance or other
insurance companies.

Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer
BEFORE YOU TRAVEL...
WEIGHTS AND CARGO CAPACITY
The safety of your travel will be affected by your understanding of weights and cargo
distribution for your trailer. Read, understand and follow all information related to the
weight of your trailer. We provide the following labels on your trailer (copies are printed
here):
• The “Federal Certification”
label (Fig. 1) is affixed to the
roadside front corner of your
trailer. It lists the vehicle
weights as well as the tire and
axle rating information.
• The “Trailer Weight
Information” label (Fig. 2) is
typically located inside a
lower cabinet close to the
entrance door. This label is
critical in understanding
trailer weight definitions.
Please read, understand and
follow all of these definitions.
In addition to the label
information, the GAWR is
the maximum weight rating
that component parts of each
axle are designed to support
(i.e. tires, brakes, springs,
axle). Information that seems
unclear should be discussed
with your independent,
authorized dealer.
The weights of your unit are the
model’s dry weights with
standard equipment. It is critical
that you do not exceed the gross
vehicle weight rating (GVWR)
of your trailer. As you begin to
load your personal cargo,
remember that what you load as
well as options that have been
added will affect the overall
weight. Never exceed the gross

Before you travel...
LOADING CARGO
After you have read and understood the overall weight definitions and limits to your trailer,
you are ready to load it for travel. With the excitement of awaiting adventures, everyone
will want to take along everything they might possibly need. This is where careful planning
and preparation will help to insure a safe trip. As you develop a routine for loading your
cargo, it may be helpful to utilize checklists and other resources. You will find a list of
items which are often used at campsites at the end of this chapter. This list will give you a
place to start when preparing your trailer for travel. Keep in mind that your preferences and
specific camping situation will determine items you would eliminate or add to this list.
Of most importance, above personal preferences, is the overall amount of cargo packed and
the way it is placed in the trailer. As cargo is placed in the unit, pay particular attention to
where you place it. Follow these rules of thumb:
• Observe ALL capacity ratings to avoid problems and make sure that you never load
your trailer or tow vehicle in a manner that cause them to exceed the GVWR,
GCWR, GAWR (of any axle) or weight ratings of an individual tire.
• Heaviest items must be stored in lower cabinets and storage areas.
• Keep the majority of the cargo weight over the axles and toward the front of the unit.
• Maintain the proper tongue weight of the trailer. Stay within the target range of
10-15% of the overall gross weight (trailer weight plus contents).
• Always pack items evenly from side to side to maintain trailer balance.
• Make sure that all items are secured in place to prevent shifting during travel.
I
24
WARNING: Ensure you are loading the unit as evenly as you can for
the best possible handling. All items must be secured to avoid shifting
during travel.

Never mount a storage pod directly to the roof. It is necessary to provide a rack system
which secures to the outer edges of the roof to support and evenly distribute the weight of
the storage pod. Consult with your independent, authorized dealer for proper installation.
Never walk on the roof. The roof of a folding camping trailer is not designed to
accommodate the weight, scratches, dents and punctures that can occur from walking on
the roof.
I
CAUTION: Never attempt to raise the roof with cargo secured to it.
HOLDING TANK(S) AND TRAILER WEIGHT
I
WARNING: We recommend that you DO NOT travel with waste in
your holding tanks. With one or more full or nearly full holding tank(s),
the towing characteristics of your trailer could change and may result
in property damage or personal injury.
The weight of holding tank contents are not calculated into the cargo carrying capacity of
the trailer. The extra weight will diminish the cargo capacity available to you. Traveling
with full holding tank(s) could possibly causing you to exceed the gross axle weight
rating(s), individual tire ratings and/or the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the unit.
Potential damage to suspension components, such as springs, tires and axles, could result.
If your trailer’s holding tank(s) are located behind the axles, the weight of the full tank(s)
will reduce the hitch weight. Trailer sway and other handling difficulties can be the result
of the hitch weight being too light.
If you are dry camping and cannot immediately empty the tank(s), use caution when
towing. Maintain lower speeds for better control of the trailer until you reach the nearest
dumping station.

WEIGHING INSTRUCTIONS
As your packing and loading routine becomes more familiar from experience, physically
weighing your trailer may not be necessary before each trip. While you are developing a
process, it is imperative that you verify compliance within the weight ratings. Overloading
your RV voids the Jayco limited, express warranty and the warranties of many component
part manufacturers. The following process will aid with weighing your trailer. Keep in
mind that individual scales will operate differently. The surroundings of the scale need to
be adequate to accommodate weighing each side of your trailer. Please read through all
weighing instructions before you begin. If you have further questions, consult with your
independent, authorized dealer or the scale operator.
Your recreation vehicle must be weighed fully loaded, that is, with food, clothing, fuel,
water, propane, supplies, etc.
TO PROPERLY WEIGH YOUR RECREATION VEHICLE
1. First, weigh the recreation vehicle including the tongue weight, while detached from
the tow vehicle. This actual overall weight must be less than or equal to the GVWR
for safe operation. If the overall weight is greater than the GVWR, some contents
must be removed until the actual overall weight is less than or equal to GVWR.
2. Next, hitch the recreation vehicle to your tow vehicle. Weigh the recreation vehicle
and the tow vehicle to determine the GCW. Make sure that this rating is less than or
equal to the GCWR as specified by the manufacturer of your tow vehicle. If this
overall weight is greater than the GCWR, some contents must be removed to bring
the combination into compliance with the listed ratings.
3. Next, weigh the recreation vehicle, while attached, but excluding the tow vehicle.
This will result in the actual weight that is exerted on all of the recreation vehicle
tires. This weight may be subtracted from the overall recreation vehicle weight
GVWR to determine the actual “tongue” weight.
4. Next, with the recreation vehicle still attached to the tow vehicle, each wheel position
should then be weighed separately to ensure each tire is not overloaded.
To Determine the Wheel Position Weight
• Pull the recreation vehicle onto the scale so only one tire is on the scale. Record the
weight. Your trailer must remain as level as possible on the scale (even though an
axle or side is not physically on the scale). Obviously, to obtain the side-to-side
weights, there must be enough space on either side of the scale to accommodate the
recreation vehicle being partially off the scale.
• To calculate the opposite side of the vehicle wheel position weight, subtract the first
side’s weight from the weight determined in step #3.
If there is a difference in the weights on one side of the vehicle as compared to weights on
the other side, components (tires, wheels, brakes, springs, etc.) on the heavier side could be
overloaded, even though the total axle load is within the GAWR. It is important to
redistribute the load to avoid component failure, to improve the handling characteristics of
the vehicle and to not void the warranty.
With these actual weights, it is now possible to compare them against the GAWR, GVWR
and tire capacities.

EQUIPMENT
The compatibility of your tow vehicle to the load you are towing is of utmost priority for
safety during your travel. There are many resources available to become educated about
tow vehicles and what you will need. Make sure that you understand what it will take to
tow your trailer, and that your tow vehicle matches those needs. If you are unsure of your
particular needs, consult with your independent, authorized dealer or hitch professionals
for assistance.
The following sections are designed as review topics that you need to understand for a safe
and enjoyable traveling experience. They are not intended as a replacement for consulting
your independent, authorized dealer and hitch professionals.
Tow Vehicle
• Crucial to finding the correct tow vehicle, is knowing the actual load weight you are
towing. Refer to the sections found later in this chapter for this calculation on your
trailer.
• When purchasing a tow vehicle, know its tow rating. As a minimum requirement, the
gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of your trailer must not exceed your tow
vehicle’s rated towing capacity. To obtain this information, consult the following
resources:
= Tow vehicle owner’s manual
= Manufacturer’s towing guide
= Auto Dealer
= Manufacturer’s information office
= Reliable Internet Source
• Know what the definition is for the tow rating. Adding after market accessories,
camping supplies, liquids (i.e. water, propane, etc.) and people will affect the tow
rating. Read, understand and follow all trailer weight definitions.
• The best way to make sure your tow vehicle/trailer combination does not exceed the
GCWR is to weigh it fully loaded.
• Some vehicles can be purchased with a towing package. This will enhance the
vehicles towing capacity. Make sure that any information given on the vehicle’s
maximum towing capacity is clarified to be with or without the towing package.
• Towing packages are available at different levels. Vehicles can be purchased with no,
light or heavy duty towing packages. Make sure you are purchasing a towing package
that will fit your needs and your camper.
• Most vehicles require additional equipment for towing. Consult with your
independent, authorized dealer for assistance with added requirements. Becoming
familiar with the extra engine requirements from towing will provide you with
vehicle longevity and a more pleasant towing experience.
• Make sure your tow vehicle is mechanically sound for towing your trailer. Pay
particular attention to suspension components, tires and tire pressure.

WARNING: Be prepared to drive slower. If you must pass, do so with
the utmost care, particularly in strong winds. When being passed or
passing semi-trailers or large buses, be prepared for displaced air, as it
can be severe enough to cause trailer sway. Understand how trailer
brakes, tow vehicle brakes, acceleration, the proper hitch and sway
Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer

controls can affect your control of the trailer when you experience
trailer sway.
Hitches
I
CAUTION:
V Using an oversized or undersized hitch can cause damage to the frame
of your trailer.
V Jayco, Inc. cannot be responsible for the suspension system of the tow
vehicle.
V The final ball height after the trailer is completely hooked up is a factor
to be considered when towing a trailer. It is important that your trailer
be level when hitched to your tow vehicle.
V To avoid overloading your trailer axles and maximize possible handling
difficulties, your trailer should be level when hooked to your tow
vehicle.
V Do not overload your tow vehicle.
There are many kinds of hitches available for various uses and assuring that you have the
correct hitch installed is critical to a safe towing experience. Your trailer requires a frame
mounted hitch. This type of hitch is assigned a class number, by the manufacturer. The
class is based on the capacity the hitch has for towing and a weight classification. The
weight classification is determined from the hitch’s weight carrying capacity, which is also
known as the tongue weight. Before selecting a hitch, you must know the total towed
weight (trailer weight and all contents of the trailer) and the tongue weight of the trailer.
The rating of the hitch package should be equal to or greater than the trailer’s GVWR and
the hitch weight.
Equipment that sometimes gives autos, trucks and sport utility vehicles a softer ride can
accentuate swaying when pulling a trailer. Conversely, suspension that is too stiff will
increase vibration, bounce and accelerate wear of your tow vehicle and trailer. It is
important that your trailer be level when hitched to your tow vehicle. Educate yourself to
protect you, your family and other motorists.
WEIGHT DISTRIBUTING SYSTEM
A weight distributing hitch system provides a more stable tow vehicle/trailer combination.
This system will spread the weight evenly to distribute it to the tow vehicle front and rear
axles and the trailer axle. Consult with your tow vehicle dealer and or hitch installer to
familiarize yourself with the operation and requirements of the weight distributing hitch
system.
SWAY CONTROL
Sway can be a major factor while traveling. It can be caused by a number of factors,
including gusty wind, air displacement while passing a semi-truck, incorrect weight
distribution and often excessive speed. The use of a sway control device will help to control
the side-to-side movement and keep sway in check.
Suggestions for sway situations:
• Slowly ease your foot off the accelerator.
Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer
29
Before you travel...
• Turn the steering wheel as little as possible. Natural lag time reaction when
counter-steering to correct sway could possibly make it worse.
• If the trailer is equipped with electric brakes, using the hand control will help to keep
the vehicles aligned.
• As soon as possible, stop to determine the cause of the sway. Check all equipment
and load distribution.
• If the problem can not be solved immediately, take the equipment to a service center.
Travel at a reduced speed on your way there.
I
WARNING: A sway control device should be used with your tow
vehicle/trailer combination. Consult with a trained hitch installer to
obtain the proper equipment for your needs.
Hitch Height and Hitch Ball Specifications
To determine the hitch height for your model, make sure that the
trailer is level. Measure from inside the hitch coupler to the ground.
Record this number in the box at the side for future reference. If you
have additional questions, consult with your independent, authorized
dealer.

The Safety Chain
There are different safety chain requirements determined by the various state laws. Your
vehicle is equipped with chains to meet SAE standard requirements for maximum gross
trailer weight. Always have the safety chains attached when towing. Install them as shown
below (Fig. 4) so they do not restrict sharp turns, but tight enough so they do not drag on the
ground.
1. Inspect chains to determine if they are
properly attached to trailer frame.
3. Repeat step 2 with right chain. Slack
for each length should be the same but
not more than necessary to permit the
vehicle to turn at their minimum radius.
2. Criss-cross left chain and attach to right
mounting slot in tow vehicle hitch.
4. Properly mounted safety chains.
Note that the jack is fully raised
and dolly wheel removed.

I
WARNING: It is critical to read, understand and follow all instructions
for hitching and towing your trailer. Improper hitching creates the
potential for trailer sway, towing difficulties and the possibility of the
trailer becoming unhitched from the tow vehicle. Failure to properly
hitch the trailer could lead to property damage, personal injury and
death.

TOWING
While towing your trailer, you need to be aware of the extra weight behind your vehicle.
The following list contains some pointers to remember while traveling, but is not a
substitute for consulting with your independent, authorized dealer and hitch professionals.
• With the trailer attached, you will have slower acceleration and require greater
distance to stop.
• Make sure you have enough area at corners when turning. Wider turns are necessary.
Use your turn signals for your own safety.
• When passing or changing lanes, take into consideration the overall length of your
trailer and allow ample distance and time. DO NOT SPEED AND BE PREPARED
FOR DISPLACED AIR WHEN PASSING OR BEING PASSED BY LARGE
TRUCKS.
• Use your rearview mirrors frequently to observe your vehicle, trailer and traffic
conditions.
• When being passed by a large truck or bus, be prepared for displaced air as it may
cause you to sway slightly. Steer straight and use your trailer brakes, if necessary, to
slow slightly or control the sway of the trailer.
• Upon climbing steep, long grades and again descending, use lower gears even before
it seems necessary. Use your brakes smoothly and evenly.
• Decrease your speed for safety! Most states require vehicles pulling trailers to
maintain slower speeds, usually the same as truck traffic.
• Drive slowly during wet or icy conditions to ensure better control of your vehicle.
• Check all exterior lights before and during each trip.
• Obey traffic laws, allow extra time for stopping and decrease speed when visibility is
limited or roads are wet.
• Have a safe and wonderful trip!
If towing a trailer is new for you, please take time to practice towing, parking and backing
skills prior to traveling. Your independent, authorized dealer can answer many of your
questions, but nothing replaces practice. We recommend that you find a large and quiet
parking lot to practice your skills.
Towing Behind Your Trailer
DO NOT tow anything behind your RV. The RV frame and bumper are NOT designed for
towing.

TIRES
The tires on your RV are specially constructed for the unique requirements of recreation
vehicle travel. They are tested under Department of Transportation (D.O.T.) standards at
the allowed highway speed limits. Proper care and maintenance of your tires is essential to
ensure your safety, as well as the safety of others, as you travel. Taking time to become
educated on the special qualities of RV tires and care they require will enhance your travel
enjoyment. Refer to tire information supplied with your units literature.
Some guidelines to follow for routine tire maintenance include:
• Always follow the recommended tire pressure which is stamped on the tire sidewall.
Keep the air pressure at the recommended psi. You must follow the manufacturer’s
inflation guidelines for maximum load capacity. Underinflation is just as dangerous
as overinflation.
Tires are warranted by the tire manufacturer and are to be serviced and
. NOTE:
warranted by an appropriate service center. They are not to be returned to the
independent, authorized dealer or trailer manufacturer.
• Always check the tire pressure when they are cold. As tires are in motion, the
temperature will rise. This will cause the air pressure to increase. DO NOT release air
pressure as tires become hot.
• Check the tire pressure and condition of the tires every day while traveling. Make
sure to look for cracking, bulging, uneven tread wear, etc. If you are parked for an
extended period, check the tire pressure at least once a week.
• Examine your tires frequently for unusual wear. Alignment, balance and bearing
wear will effect tire wear.
I
WARNING: It is recommended that the tire pressure be checked at the
beginning of each journey to obtain the maximum life of the tire. Follow
the instructions listed on the certification label, affixed to the roadside
front corner of your trailer, to determine the correct tire pressure.
Underinflation may cause tire failures and swaying. This will result in
loss of control, injury, death or property damage.
• If a tire needs to be replaced, make sure it is the same size and load capacity as those
originally supplied with your trailer. Refer to the unit’s Federal Certification Label
for the proper tire size and load range. If you have further questions, consult with
your independent, authorized dealer or local tire store.
I
WARNING: Be sure to use only tires that are rated for trailer use. The
use of passenger tires should be avoided. The load rating/ range
embossed on the sidewall of passenger tires must be de-rated
accordingly they do not have the same load capability as tires that are
specifically identified for trailer use. Failure to use tires that are
properly matched to your recreation vehicle could lead to premature
tire wear or less than optimum trailer handling.

WHEEL LUGS
I
WARNING: Wheel lug nuts must be applied and maintained at the
proper torque levels to prevent loose wheels, broken studs, and possible
separation of the wheel(s) from your trailer. The lug nuts on the wheels
of your Jayco trailer must be maintained according to the torque values
listed in the chart on the following page. Over torquing and/or under
torquing wheels may result in component failure.
After your first trip, check the wheel lugs periodically for safety. Check the wheel lugs
after winter storage, before starting a trip or following extensive braking. The proper

A torque wrench is the best way to assure the proper amount of torque is being applied. Also review the
axle manufacturer’s operation and service manual supplied with your trailer or contact your independent,
authorized dealer for further assistance.
ELECTRIC BRAKES
Your trailer’s electric brakes are designed to work with your tow vehicle’s hydraulic
brakes. To maintain proper braking performance, both trailer and tow vehicle brakes must
be used together. Separate use of the systems will cause accelerated wear and damage.
WHEN YOUR TRAILER IS NEW, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ADJUST YOUR BRAKE
SHOES PRECISELY. IT TAKES APPROXIMATELY 1,000 MILES AND/OR 50
MEDIUM TO HEAVY STOPS TO “BURNISH” FIT OR “SEAT” THE SHOES TO THE
BRAKE DRUM. AFTER THE INITIAL BREAK IN PERIOD YOUR SHOES MUST BE
ADJUSTED ACCURATELY FOR BEST PERFORMANCE AND INCREASED
DURABILITY.
Braking system components include:
• Tow vehicle battery
• Brake controller
• Wire harness/connector plug
• Trailer battery
• Breakaway switch
Tow vehicle battery - The tow vehicle battery is the primary source of power for your
trailer brake operation. To ensure available power when needed, keep your tow vehicle
battery and charging system working properly.
Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer
35
Before you travel...
Brake Controller - The controller is installed on the tow vehicle dashboard to work in
conjunction with the trailer brakes. Hydraulic or electronic controllers are available.
Consult with your independent, authorized dealer or the controller manufacturer to decide
what is right for you and your trailer.
Wire Harness/Connector Plug - A seven way plug is wired into your trailer to connect
electrical power to the tow vehicle for travel. This supplies power to the brakes, exterior
lights, etc. Wiring to operate your brakes must be the same size in both the tow vehicle and
the trailer. Your trailer is wired with 12 gauge wire.
Make sure the plug is kept clean and protected from road elements as you travel. Consult
the Electrical Section of this manual for further information.
Trailer Battery - A 12-volt auxiliary battery is required to operate the breakaway switch.
Consult with your independent, authorized dealer to purchase a battery and have it
installed.
I
WARNING: For the breakaway switch to be operational, an auxiliary
battery needs to be installed on your trailer. Consult with your
independent, authorized dealer to purchase the battery and have it
installed.
Breakaway Switch - The breakaway switch is a crucial part of the braking system.
Located on the trailer tongue, this switch will apply the trailer brakes if it becomes
detached from the tow vehicle. Attach the breakaway switch lanyard to a permanent part of
the tow vehicle (do not attach it to the hitch ball or similar removable parts) when hitching
the trailer. If the trailer is detached from the tow vehicle, the pull pin will be pulled from the
switch. This automatically causes the switch to “close” and activates the trailer brakes.
Refer to the manufacturer’s supplied information for the breakaway switch. Consult with
your independent, authorized dealer or the switch manufacturer if you have questions.
Caution: NEVER use the breakaway switch and trailer brake system as a parking
brake. Doing so would create a high amp draw on the battery and converter. This
can cause damage to wiring, connectors and the breakaway switch.
HYDRAULIC BRAKES
Your trailer may be equipped with hydraulic surge brakes. These brakes operate
automatically as the tow vehicle’s brakes are applied. When the tow vehicle operator
begins to decrease speed and apply the brakes, the weight of the moving trailer pushes
forward and the coupler moved downward. This pressure moves the plunger, which in turn
pushes the piston and rubber cup inside the master cylinder. Brake fluid presses inside of
the wheel cylinder and activates the brake shoes against the drum.
36
Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer
Before you travel...
Backing Your Trailer
As designed, the weight of a trailer pushing forward will activate the surge brake system.
When backing a trailer up hill, the weight of it may activate the brakes, making it difficult
to continue to reverse.
1. Prior to backing up a slope or through soft ground, pull the trailer forward slightly to
assure that the actuator socket is in the forward position.
2. Move the lever knob on the side of the actuator downward from the “towing position”
along the curved slot in the actuator frame to the “backup position”. The slot has a
notch at the bottom of its travel. Push the lever down to engage the locking notch.
3. The trailer will now back up. This lever knob will slide into the correct position when
pulling forward.
It is extremely important to keep the master cylinder full at all times. An
. NOTE:
empty cylinder invites moisture.
Breakaway Protection
The hydraulic brake system is equipped with a breakaway cable or chain. When towing,
this cable or chain must be attached loosely to a frame member of the tow vehicle, leaving
enough clearance so the trailer can turn freely without actuating the breakaway device.
If the trailer separates from the tow vehicle, the breakaway cable will actuate the master
cylinder, locking the brakes. This will stop the trailer in the shortest possible distance.
I
CAUTION: Breakaway protection must be fully released during the
vehicle operation. Check this before towing. Do not use the breakaway
protection as a parking brake.
WHEN THE CAMPING TRAILER IS NEW
Caution: The following process to “season” your trailer tent is important. If you do
not follow this procedure, you may experience some water seepage during the first
few exposures to rain.
1. Well in advance of any trip, set up your folding camping trailer.
2. Using a garden hose, thoroughly soak the tent with a light spray of water. DO NOT
spray directly on the canvas with a high pressure hose.
3. After the tent dries, repeat the soaking process three additional times.
If you note any water seepage or leaks after seasoning your tent, let the tent dry then spray
water repellant on the INSIDE of the seam where seepage occurs. One or two applications
of water repellant may be necessary to stop all water seepage in seams where thread enters
the fabric.
Touching the tent canvas when it is wet can cause leakage. If leakage
. NOTE:
persists, please contact your independent, authorized dealer for assistance.

SETTING UP CAMP...
SELECTING YOUR CAMPSITE
In some cases, searching for the right campground prior to traveling might be the first step
in selecting your site. Some campgrounds will allow reservations made in advance.
Depending on the area you are headed to and the time of year (i.e. around a holiday),
reservations may limit your frustration upon arrival.
Your trip experience will be effected by the site you choose to park your RV. With time,
you will know what you are looking for and what best fits your needs. A few items to keep
in mind when selecting your campsite are:
• Arrive before dark, if possible, to make the site selection easier.
• Is the ground level? This will help with leveling your RV and making your stay more
comfortable.
• Is there plenty of space?
= Will it accommodate slideouts, canopy, etc.? (if applicable)
= Is there room for picnic tables, lawn chairs, campfire, etc.?
= Is it void of hanging limbs that may damage your unit?
• Is it located in a convenient area?
= Will you be able to park close enough to hookups (water, sewer, electric)?
= Are you away from noisy areas or things that might detract from a positive
experience?
= Is there plenty of shade?
= Is there good drainage in case of bad weather?
Beyond finding a site that best suits your needs, it is also helpful to keep in mind how you
are affecting your camping neighbors’ experience. Some etiquette items to keep in mind
are:
• Observe the quiet times as posted and abide by the rules of the campground.
• Don’t play loud music or make noise which is going to be disturbing to others around
you.
• If pets are allowed, keep them restrained.
• Show respect to others, don’t make shortcuts through occupied campsites.
• Keep your campsite clean and pick up all trash before departing from the
campground.
Additional Considerations with a Baja Trailer
With your purchase of a Baja Folding Camping Trailer, a new world to camping
experience is open for exploration. As you venture to remote locations, the Baja trailer will
provide some added benefits for the off road experience.
When traveling off main roads to discover where the trails lead, there are additional safety
concerns to consider. Take time to read, understand and follow the owner’s manual as well
as any information that is provided for the safe operation of your trailer.
Information and education that you obtain about traveling off road could help to insure a
safe and enjoyable experience. While experience is a good teacher, there are resources and
schools available to provide insight into the additional requirements of off road travels.

Some basic items to keep in mind are:
• There are trails that will lead to incredible adventure if you keep the limitations of
your tow vehicle and trailer in mind. Travel only on trails which will accommodate
your tow vehicle and trailer combination.
• While your trailer is built to travel on more rugged trails, taking extra time and
traveling slower will ensure that you do not damage the trailer.
• There are areas you will be able to explore with your tow vehicle that will not
accommodate a trailer. Be aware of where a trail is leading before attempting to tow
your trailer there.
• Make sure that all safety information in this manual and component manufacturers’
manuals has been reviewed and understood before you begin your travels.
Preparation before departing may help to avoid issues as you travel.

Leveling Your Trailer
Leveling your RV is critical for several
reasons. Your camping experience will
be more pleasant in a level unit. It is
important for your RV to be level for
proper operation of items such as the
refrigerator, the slideout system and
draining tanks, if applicable.
Proper
Improper
Fig. 6
Using blocks under the RV tires is a common way to level the unit. Blocks for this purpose
can be purchased from various RV resources or made out of wood. The proper size of
blocks are required to prevent causing damage to the tires. Make sure the blocks used cover
the entire footprint of the RV tire. Refer to Fig. 6 for proper tire blocking.
Stabilizer Jacks
1. Insert the crank onto the stabilizer jack shaft.
2. Turn it clockwise to lower the jack. Continue lowering the jack until the frame of the
trailer begins to rise slightly.
3. Equalize the jacks for best support. This may require that you adjust each jack several
times. When not parked on cement, you may wish to place a wood or hard plastic
block under the jack for convenience.
I
WARNING: DO NOT USE THE STABILIZER JACKS TO LEVEL
THE UNIT. It is important to remember that the stabilizer jacks are to
be used only for support while occupying and moving around the
trailer. They are not designed to bear the weight of the trailer.
Tent Set Up

12 VOLT DC ON-DEMAND PUMP
To extract water from your water tank, you need 12 volt-DC power to operate the
on-demand water pump. Energy for the pump is supplied by the auxiliary battery or
converter. Depending on your trailer model, the pump will be located under the bed, in a
cupboard, under the unit or under the sink. The switch to operate the pump is located on the
monitor panel or a wall near the pump.
Refer to instructions supplied by the pump manufacturer with your trailer. If you have
questions, consult with your independent, authorized dealer and/or visit the manufacturer’s
website at www.shurflo.com.
The water pump switch should be in the off position when the camper is left
. NOTE:
unattended for any amount of time. If something would happen to the water system,
this will help limit water damage to a smaller area.
WATER PRESSURE REGULATOR
Excessive pressure from water supply systems may be encountered in some parks,
especially in mountain regions. Water pressure regulators are available to protect your
system against such high pressure. A regulator of this type is recommended to prevent
damage to the plumbing system or component parts.
Caution: Not using a water pressure regulator when using city water may cause the
o-rings to blow. It is advisable to always use a water pressure regulator when using
the city water connection.
WASTE WATER DISPOSAL

Propane Connections and Start Up
I
WARNING: Propane can be extremely dangerous. Make sure that you
read, understand and follow all information supplied in this manual
and all component part manufacturers’ manuals before operating your
propane system.
After the camper is completely set up and you are prepared for camping enjoyment, follow
these steps for propane operation.
1. Close all the burner valves, controls and pilot light valves.
2. Open the main valve on the propane container slowly to avoid a fast rush through the
excess flow valve causing a “propane freeze.” If you experience a propane
“freeze-up,” close the main valve and wait 15 minutes before trying again.
3. Listen carefully as the propane begins to flow. If “hissing” is heard for more than one
or two seconds, this may indicate a leak. Immediately close the valve and search for
the leak.
4. Light the appliances as needed and directed in the appliance manufacturers
instructions.
Make sure that you read and fully understand ALL safety requirements for handling and
operation of the propane system. Literature is supplied with your unit from the
manufacturer of the various appliances hooked to your propane system. The propane
system provides added benefits to your camping enjoyment, however, it must be handled
with care. If you have any questions or concerns, consult with your independent,
authorized dealer and/or the specific appliance manufacturer.
If you have double cylinders on your trailer, use only one at a time. Otherwise the propane
supply will be drawn equally from both cylinders until the supply has been totally
exhausted. Using one cylinder until it is empty, then using the second cylinder will allow
you to fill the empty cylinder at your convenience without being totally out of propane.
54
Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer

Sanitizing the Potable Water System
I
WARNING: Failure to sanitize the potable water system could result in
death or serious injury.
Potable water systems require periodic maintenance to deliver a consistent flow of fresh
water. Depending on use, and the environment the system is subject to, sanitizing is
recommended prior to storing and before using the water system after a period of storage.
Systems with new components, or ones that have been subjected to contamination, should
also be disinfected as follows:
1. Use one of the following methods to determine the amount of common household
bleach needed to sanitize the tank.
= Multiply “gallons of tank capacity” by 0.13; the result is the ounces of bleach
needed to sanitize the tank.
= Multiply “liters of tank capacity” by 1.0; the result is the milliliters of bleach
needed to sanitize the tank.
2. Mix the proper amount of bleach into a container of water.
3. Pour the solution (water/bleach) into the tank and fill the tank with potable water.
4. Open all faucets allowing water to run until the distinct odor of chlorine is detected.
5. The standard solution must have four (4) hours of contact time to disinfect
completely. Doubling the solution concentration allows for contact time of one (1)
hour.
6. When the contact time is completed, drain the tank. Refill with potable water and
purge the plumbing of all sanitizing solution.
If there is a problem of excessive chlorine odor and taste after the sanitizing process, follow
the above procedures using a solution of baking soda (1/2 cup added to one gallon (4 liters)
of water per 15 gallons (60 liters) of tank capacity) or vinegar (one quart added to five
gallons (20 liters) of water per 15 gallons (60 liters) of tank capacity.)
Your demand water system is now ready for use. Refer to instructions on filling the tank
and utilizing the system in the “Setting Up Camp...” chapter.
Drainage - Fresh Water
Permanent water tanks may be drained through a valve located near the tank. Any camper
with a demand pressure pump system will have low-point drains attached to the water lines
normally located near the water tank. These low-point drains will release water in the
supply lines by opening the valves and all faucets. The water heater has its own drain plug.

Several things to remember each time the propane container is removed:
1. Check that ALL fittings are tight.
2. Check that ALL connections are tested with leak solution. Consult with your
independent, authorized dealer or propane service personnel.
3. Open the main valve slowly to avoid a fast rush of propane to excess flow valve
causing propane freeze up. If you experience a propane “freeze-up,” close the main
valve and wait at least fifteen (15) minutes before trying again. Refer to the document
found with your trailer literature from the regulator manufacturer.
4. Listen carefully - a “hissing” sound longer than one second may indicate a propane
leak. Close the valve and search for the leak.
Regulator
The regulator is in integral part of the propane system. It is required to reduce the pressure
of the propane before it is sent to the system to operate your appliances. It is critical to your
safety that you read, understand and follow all literature supplied with your unit on the
operation and maintenance of the regulator.
I
WARNING: Propane regulators must always be installed with the
diaphragm vent facing downward. Regulators that are not in a
compartment have been equipped with a protective cover. Make sure
that the regulator vent faces downward and that the cover is kept in
place to minimize vent blockage, which could result in excessive
propane pressure causing fire, explosion, death or serious injury.
PROPANE CONSUMPTION
Most propane appliances are operated intermittently. Unless there is heavy use of hot
water, the water heater consumption is minimal. During freezing weather and high wind
conditions, furnace consumption can be extremely high.
Propane consumption depends upon the length of time appliances are operated. Each
gallon (3.86 liters) of propane produces about 91,500 BTUs (46,514 kilojoules) of heat
energy.

device (Fig. 35) for safety protection. A
converter or auxiliary battery is required to
supply 12-volt DC energy to operate the leak
detector. Carefully read, understand and
follow the information supplied by the
Fig. 35
propane detector manufacturer which is
supplied with your trailer. Consult with your independent, authorized dealer and/or visit
the manufacturer’s website at www.mtiindustries.com if you have any questions on the
operation or maintenance of this detector.
I
WARNING: For your safety, make sure that the propane detector is
properly maintained and functioning. The detector requires 12-volt DC
energy through the converter or from an auxiliary battery to operate.
Without a proper energy source, the detector will not work and you will
not be warned of leaking propane.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
General
The electrical system in your trailer consists of 120-volt AC
(alternating current) and 12-volt DC (direct current) circuits
and components. All installations are made in compliance
with safety requirements of ANSI standard A.1192,
National Electric Code, and Canadian Standards
Association.
30-amp
125-volt
All trailers will have 30-amp service pre-wired into the breaker box.
Caution: Power surges experienced while plugged in at a campground could
potentially damage electronic component parts in your recreation vehicle. Damage
from power surges are not covered by your Jayco warranty. Consult the component
part manufacturer’s owner’s manual and/or your independent, authorized dealer
for recommendations on power surge protection.
68
Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer
Utilities & Systems
120-Volt AC System
POWER CORD
Your trailer is equipped with a 30-amp power cord pre-wired into the breaker box. By
opening the cable hatch door, you can pull the power cord from the compartment and attach
it to the campground power source. For Canadian units, the power cord is protected with a
30-amp main circuit breaker. Power is distributed through circuit breakers to receptacles
built into walls and cabinets. The cord extends approximately 25’ (7 meters) from the
trailer depending on the floor plan. Your RV power cord must be fully extended and not left
coiled in the compartment or on the ground. If the cord is left coiled, it creates potential for
heat to melt the cord’s casing together.
To prevent accidental electrical shock, insure that the ground pin on the attachment plug
cap is intact to the earth ground through the RV park receptacle. Any accidental short of a
live circuit conductor will trip the circuit breaker indicating a shorted circuit. Make sure
that the polarity of the external power is not reversed, in order to avoid harm to appliances
and personal electrical shock. Polarity indicators may be purchased in most electrical and
hardware stores.
It is strongly recommended to avoid the use of extension cords. Using an improper
extension cord will cause overheating of the cord and equipment, and it voids the warranty.
It may also cause premature failure of the AC equipment. If you choose to use an extension
cord, it MUST be the same amperage rating as the RV power cord and be identified for
heavy-duty outdoor use. However, the use of an extension cord can still cause all of the
problems discussed here and will void the warranty.
I
WARNING: Do not use an adapter, cheater or extension cord that will
break the continuity of the grounding circuit connected to the third pin.
NEVER remove the grounding pin to connect a non-grounded,
two-prong receptacle. Any deviation from this will potentially cause a
fire from overheating.
GFCI
I
WARNING: Make sure you read, understand and follow all
instructions supplied by the GFCI receptacle manufacturer with your
RV. Failure to follow these instructions could lead to death or serious
injury from shock or electrocution.
Each trailer has a GFCI receptacle installed. These initials mean “Ground Fault Current
Interrupter.” This special receptacle has been designed to reduce the possible injury caused
by electrical shock.
An example of ground fault current is the current which would flow through a person who
is using or touching an appliance with faulty insulation and, at the same time, is in contact
with an electrical ground such as a plumbing fixture, wet floor, or earth.
Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer

Utilities & Systems
When this GFCI receptacle is tripped, it has interrupted ground fault current caused by
such things as faulty insulation or wet wiring inside some appliance or equipment
connected to the circuit. The faulty equipment should be repaired before is it used again.
This GFCI receptacle will not protect against short circuits or overloads. The circuit
breaker or fuse in the electrical panel which supplies power to the circuit provides this
protection.
The GFCI receptacle should be tested monthly while the trailer is being used. Any
suspected problems with the GFCI should be checked by an independent, authorized
dealer.
Testing Instructions

3.
4.
5.
Plug a 120 volt electrical device into the receptacle on the face of the GFCI.
Push and release the RESET button.
The 120 volt electrical device should operate at this time.
Press the TEST button.
The RESET button should pop out indicating it has been “tripped” and the 120 volt
electrical device should go out. (If the GFCI is manufactured with an indicator light,
the light should glow when the GFCI has tripped.)
6. If the GFCI did not trip, do not use the outlet. Call a qualified electrician to service or
replace the receptacle. The ground fault protection is no longer working properly.
7. To restore power after “tripping”, press in the RESET button. It must remain in. (If an
indicator light is furnished, it will be off.)
12-Volt DC System
The 12-volt DC system is composed of numerous items such as a power converter, battery,
fuses, wire, and bulbs, both interior and exterior lighting. Explanation on these items will
follow in this section.
I
WARNING: For the breakaway switch to be operational, an auxiliary
battery needs to be installed. Consult with your independent,
authorized dealer to purchase the battery and have it installed.
Caution: Your camping trailer has many 12-volt DC loads. When combined, they
total more power consumption than is available with the 12-volt DC converter.
Periodic overloads can be handled with the optional auxiliary battery for short
periods of time. It is suggested to conserve your 12-volt DC system at most times.
Prolonged overload may shorten the performance life of the power converter.
POWER CONVERTER
The power converter is a complicated feature. There are no customer
. NOTE:
serviceable parts in or on the converter. If the converter is opened, it will void the
converter warranty. If you have questions or concerns, consult with your
independent, authorized dealer.
A power converter utilizes 120-volt AC power and transforms this energy into 12-volt DC
power, which is used inside of your trailer. 12-volt DC energy supplies power to all interior
70
Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer
Utilities & Systems
lights and various appliances. The floor plan, and size of the camping trailer dictates the
model and output size of the converter required.
Inside the converter is an electronic device which converts 120-volt AC incoming power to
12-volt DC output power. An auxiliary battery as correctly installed will be charged when
the trailer is connected to 120-volt AC power. The converter will supply power to
individual components through fuses located behind the converter face plate.
I
WARNING:
V Turn off all interior lights before folding the camping trailer to transit
as the bulbs may cause a fire hazard in the stored position and burn
holes in the tent.
V Do not block power converter ventilation.
Interior
All 12-volt power comes from the converter or the black lead in the wire harness from the
tow vehicle battery. Remember, to receive power from the converter, you must have a
120-volt energy source available. 120-volt power may be turned off or on by switching the
120-volt breaker in the converter.
The “bunk” light will attach to the bed bow brace with a clip on the back of the light. To
operate the light with 12-volt power, plug the cord into the receptacle located on the ceiling
light, front or rear. A switch to control the bunk light is built into the light assembly.
A camping trailer with a porch light will have the on/off switch built into the light
assembly. The bunk light may also be used outside by clipping it to the optional canopy.
When attached to the canopy, the bunk light will be connected to the porch light receptacle.
Auxiliary Battery (Independent, Authorized Dealer Installed Option)
All camping trailers are prewired to accept an auxiliary battery. The battery must be
hooked up directly to the red (positive) and white (negative) wires at the battery hold down
bracket near the trailer hitch.
The auxiliary battery will help miniminze tow vehicle battery discharge when 120-volt
power is not available.
A battery is required to operate the breakaway switch and also provides a source of energy
when traveling and camping.
All battery packages require an “in-line” fuse and holder attached to the battery for circuit
protection. Consult with an independent, authorized dealer for correct installation of the
auxiliary battery.
I
CAUTION: When drawing current from the tow vehicle battery, avoid
discharging the battery to a level at which the tow vehicle will not start.
All camping trailers have a ceiling light circuit fed through a master shut-off switch which
prevents 12-volt current from flowing to the ceiling lights with the roof lowered.
Periodically test the light and switch to be sure the switch adjustment is correct. The switch
is located along the bottom edge of the roof on the roadside of the unit.

MAINTAINING YOUR INVESTMENT...
MAINTENANCE
Your trailer is designed to be as maintenance free as possible. However, maintenance is
important to retain its condition as near new as possible and preserve the warranty. The
information in the following pages is supplied to provide guidance for your maintenance
routine. Many of the component part manufacturers supply information for their
equipment. The features of your trailer will vary based on the floor plan and options. Refer
to all instructions supplied with your trailer when performing maintenance. Proper
maintenance will give you many trouble free miles.
. NOTE: Some areas in this chapter may not be applicable to your trailer.
Failure to properly maintain your trailer can cause numerous problems and
. NOTE:
it voids Jayco’s warranty as well as the warranties of many of the component part
manufacturers.
Caution: We recommend that you do not take your recreation vehicle through
automatic car washes. Extreme caution should be used if utilizing any type of
pressure sprayer around all attachments, doors, windows, appliance vents, etc.
Avoid forcing water inside the unit, which could possibly damage component parts.
EXTERIOR FINISH
Depending on your trailer’s features, the exterior is constructed of aluminum or fiberglass.
Refer to the general instructions that follow for care information.
Aluminum
The aluminum on the outside of your trailer can be cleaned and washed the same as an
automobile finish. It is suggested that a spray wax or wash and wax combination be used
for waxing due to the texture of the aluminum. The textured aluminum siding will reduce
excess scratching. The roof aluminum skin material should be washed and polished to
maintain its finish.
Fiberglass
Fiberglass parts are very durable and easy to maintain. To keep them looking nice, wax and
buff them once a year. Standard automotive cleaning soaps and waxes work well for
general cleaning and maintenance. In addition, do not dry wipe the surface. Special
cleaners and waxes are available at automotive and RV stores.
Scratches, chips and other cosmetic cracks can be easily fixed by an experienced fiberglass
repair shop. Any major damage should be repaired as soon as possible to keep cracks from
spreading.

SEALANTS
Water is a recreation vehicle’s worst enemy when it is allowed to enter where it is not
intended. Sealants perform a very important function, must be inspected closely and
regularly maintained. We incorporate many different types of sealants, including
butyl/putty, black butyl-encapsulated foam, silicone (clear and colored), roof sealant and
foam. In general, sealants do not have “set” lifetimes. Varying environmental factors affect
the pliability and adhesiveness of sealants. Sealants can be affected by ultraviolet
exposure, air pollution, extreme temperatures and exposure to other elements. Conditions
such as rain, salt, dust and pollution may increase the need to maintain your RV’s sealants.
Checking your sealants is routine maintenance. It is recommended that you or your
independent, authorized dealer:
• Inspect all sealants, a minimum of every six months. Make sure to check the roof
and all four sides of the RV including all moldings, windows, doors, vents, and
exterior attachments. Reseal as necessary and at least one time each year as
preventative maintenance.
• Cap seal (if applicable) or replace the sealant if you notice any cracks, gaps, lifting,
looseness, peeling, shrinkage, voids or any sign of physical deterioration. Complete
repairs immediately to prevent damage to your RV.
• Always use the same type of sealant originally used to build your RV. Consult with
your independent, authorized dealer for the proper sealant(s) to use on your RV.
• If you notice water inside the unit,

ROOF LATCHES
Inspect the roof latches to make sure they are tight and have not been damaged.
Periodically adjust them to maintain tension. If the latches become damaged, have them
replaced.
LIFTER SYSTEM
Lifter Posts
The telescoping posts should be lubricated semi-annually. Use a light coat of silicone spray
to insure smooth, trouble-free operation. Do not permit the the spray to come in contact
with the tent. Do not use grease or oil on the posts. Grease and oil will attract dirt, causing
the tent to become dirty.
Winch
The winch should be lubricated one time each year,
preferably at the beginning of the camping season.
Access the winch through the lifter system crank
door, or if necessary, inside the cupboard opposite
the crank door on the interior of the trailer. If
accessing the winch from the interior of the trailer,
you will need to remove the winch cover. For ease of
access to the winch from the interior, perform this
maintenance just prior to closing the camping trailer.
Utilizing an oil can, place a small quantity of light oil
on the pressure washer and tubing spacer (Fig. 41)
before operating the lifter system to set up or close
the trailer. As you raise/lower the roof of the trailer,
the oil will be distributed to lubricate these
components.
Fig. 41
FRAME
It is recommended you periodically inspect the exterior exposed areas, clean and repaint
the steel members, occasionally and whenever you notice rust or paint chipped away, to
insure long life. Road debris will chip paint, inviting rust and other deterioration. To
prevent rust or corrosion, you may wish to purchase a commercially available rust
treatment application. If damage would occur, the frame needs to be painted with e-coat
paint and not a gloss black paint. This type of paint is available in a spray can from the
vendor, Leland. Contact the vendor at their website, www.lelandengineering.com or by
phone at 800-669-7681. Rust or frame damage resulting from lack of routine maintenance
voids the warranty.
COUPLER
Use a small quantity of silicone spray on the moving mechanisms of the coupler. Also
lubricate all moving parts in the actuator to insure ease of operation. It is recommended that
you use conventional grease on the hitch ball.

TONGUE JACK
Lubricate the tongue jack by extending it to the full down position and insert SAE 30 oil
through the oil hole in the top of the jack. Do this several times per camping season.
E-Z LUBE AXLE
The E-Z Lube feature on your axles provides the ability for the bearings to be periodically
lubricated without removing the hubs from the axle. This feature consists of axle spindles
that have been specially drilled and fitted with grease zerks in their ends. When grease is
pumped into the zerk, it is channeled to the inner bearing and then flows back to the outer
bearing and eventually back out the grease cap hole.
A manual is supplied with your trailer which covers the maintenance of your axles. Refer to
this information for information regarding how and when to maintain the axle. If you have
further questions, consult with your independent, authorized dealer and/or visit the
manufacturer’s website at www.dexteraxle.com.

Changing Tire
1. Keep the trailer attached to the tow vehicle. Block the tire on the opposite side of the
unit from the tire you are changing.
2. Loosen the wheel lug on the tire you are changing before jacking up the trailer. DO
NOT remove the lug nuts, only loosen them for ease of removal when the tire is off
the ground.
3. Locate the main frame rail of the trailer. It spans from the front to the back just inside
the tires.
4. To raise the trailer, place the jack (hydraulic or screw) under the main frame rail. It
must be just ahead of the front tire or just behind the rear tire.
I
WARNING: Never raise the trailer by placing the jack under the axle
beam, springs or any attachment parts. Failure to comply could result
in property damage, personal injury or death.
Vinyl Tire Cover (Option)
Your tires are manufactured with components that cause “bleeding” onto the tire cover. To
prevent this, it is recommended to use a separator (garbage bag, paper, cloth, etc.) between
the tire and the cover.
CLEARANCE LIGHTS
Inspect all exterior lights to make sure they do not have moisture trapped inside. The
“weep” holes at the bottom of the lights must be kept open to allow moisture to escape from
the light fixture.
DOORS, EXTRUSIONS & VENTS
Locks on entrance and baggage doors need biannual lubrication. Silicone lubricant is
recommended. Conditions such as rain, salt, dust and pollution may increase the
maintenance needs.
ABS PLASTICS
Various components of your trailer are made of ABS plastic, which is light, strong and rust
proof. A few suggestions are given here to ensure long cap life.
• Wash ABS plastic with detergent and water, followed by a water rinse. Always mix
the detergent with the water before washing. If you squirt detergent directly on the
cap, you may discolor the cap.
• Do not wax ABS plastic. Excess wax will be trapped in the textured surface finish.
The wax will trap dirt.
• Do not apply any product containing petroleum, as oil softens the plastic. Examples
of products to avoid are bug and tar remover, mineral spirits or similar solvents,
motor oil, charcoal lighter or any industrial cleaner that contains petroleum
distillates.
• Abrasive cleaners will dull the surface and may rub through the weatherproof outer
covering. When the cover is damaged, the plastic may yellow and become brittle.
Caution: Avoid using “Citrus” or biodegradable cleaners which contain
“D-Limonene.” They will damage plastic materials.

BED
Bed Slides
Lubricate the bed slides two times each year. Use only a silicone spray to avoid attracting
dirt and soiling the bed mats.
Bed Braces
Inspect the bed braces prior to each camping trip. Never use the braces if they are bent or
damaged.
HEATED BED MATS
Caution: Do not use dry cleaning fluid on this bedding. Cleaning solvents may have
a deteriorating effect on the insulation of the heating element.
Unplug the unit first. Wipe gently or blot the soiled area, using a damp cloth treated with a
mild detergent. DO NOT IMMERSE. Allow to dry thoroughly before plugging in for use.
FABRIC COMPONENTS
Your folding camping trailer is a combination of several fabric components used to enclose
the living area. The canvas used to construct the bunk end and side panels is made of 10.10
ounce army duck cotton, treated to pass the required Federal Fire Retardant Standards. The
folding camping trailer awning (refer to awning definition) is made of an embossed vinyl
with textile backing. On the interior of the folding camping trailer tent, the material is a
100% polyester backing. The following definitions will assist you in providing the proper
care for your folding camping trailer tent components.

FABRIC CARE
Cushions/Bed Mats
Please use common sense and treat your furniture as you would at home. Remember, your
folding camping trailer is a small living area, so soiling may occur more frequently and the
fabric will probably need more attention than your furniture at home. Please follow these
guidelines for cleaning upholstery fabrics on the cushions/bed mats.
Frequent vacuuming with a brush attachment or a light hand brushing will help remove
dust, hair, sand and other particles which may dull the look of the fabric and accelerate
wear.
Water base cleaners are recommended. If a spill does occur, blot up the spot, but do not rub
it in. Solvents are not recommended since they may have an adverse reaction to the specific
backing of your upholstery fabric. Do not saturate the area. Clean it in a well ventilated area
and avoid products containing toxic materials. Always pre-test a small area before
proceeding. Use a professional furniture cleaning service for an overall cleaning.
A reminder: The upholstery fabrics have been manufactured using quality materials.
However, if abused, they are not completely resistant to damage.
Caution: Do not dry clean the covers of the cushions/bed mats. If the covers are dry
cleaned, the vinyl will become hard and crack.
SoftShades™
SoftShades™ should be dry cleaned by a professional for best results. However, they may
be washed in cool water on the delicate cycle. Line dry only.
Caution: Care must be taken to follow the above instructions or results may not be
satisfactory.
86
Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer
Maintaining Your Investment...
Tents
Caution: The tent fabric of your folding camping trailer is a mildew resistant fabric.
This does not, however, mean that it is mildew proof. Priority in taking proper care
of your tent will help to prolong its life. For warranty coverage, it is imperative that
you read and follow the listed recommendations in this manual and all related
literature.
Proper care and maintenance are important for the life of your folding camping trailer’s
tent. Be aware that the canvas portion of the tent will take longer to dry than the vinyl. If
you are forced to store the tent wet, we recommend that the camping trailer be set up at the
earliest possible convenience and left for several days to dry completely. After the tent is
dry, brush all dirt and debris from the fabric, taking care in corners and crevices. Make sure
the entire tent is completely dry before refolding it and storing the camping trailer. We
recommend the following list of suggestions to adhere to when there is a need to clean the
tents.
Exterior
• If the tent becomes dirty, use a damp cloth or sponge with water. Do not use
detergents, soaps or solvents since they may remove water repellency, fire
retardants and damage the surface or color.
• Do not use aerosol type cleaners.
• Do not use insect repellent, hair sprays or suntan lotions around the fabrics as they
may stain them and damage or destroy the water repellency. If accidental contact
occurs, apply a fabric protector or utilize a professional to provide water repellant
treatment.
• Be sure to clean bird droppings, tree sap, dirt and soot from campfires off of the tent.
• Assure that your canvas and trailer have good ventilation, especially after a
rainy period. The most common cause of a damaged canvas is mildew, which is
the result of storing your unit for any period of time with a damp or wet canvas,
even for short periods. This is even more important in humid climates. If the
tent must be stored wet, open the unit and allow it to dry thoroughly as soon as
possible.
• For the vinyl awning, use only non-abrasive cleaners with warm water and a sponge
to remove excess dirt and grime. Do not use cleaners with a bleach ingredient.
Chlorine or bleach will strip the finish and color from your vinyl.
• If water seepage occurs in the seams of the vinyl awning, you may want to apply a
spray type water sealant on sewn seams.
Interior
The material used on the interior of the tents is a 100% polyester backing. This material
contains inhibitors that help prevent the growth of mildew on the fabric. It is not
mildew-proof. Mildew or fungus may attach to the material, however, the material will aid
in preventing the growth. If mildew does attach itself to the fabric, brush the mildew dust
with a soft bristle brush making sure there is plenty of ventilation and air circulation. Using
a mild soap and water solution, thoroughly clean the area. Rinse with clean water.

Maintaining Your Investment...
Caution: Use of bleach or products containing bleach could potentially damage the
tent material causing it to rot away. If such products are used, make sure that the
cleaning is followed by several thorough rinses with clean water.
Condensation
Condensation can be
prevalent
in
folding
camping trailers if proper
ventilation is not used. It
can exist whether or not a
heater is used. During
periods of rain, avoid
contact with the tent. The
natural body oils in skin
Fig. 44
will neutralize the tent
waterproofing and cause the rain to soak through. We recommend that you leave a small
opening (Fig. 44) in each bunk zipper to permit air to flow through and allow the tent to
“breathe.” This will help minimize moisture gathering above the bunk area on the vinyl.
Use only breathable fabric camper covers, such as those available through your
independent, authorized dealer, when storing your camping trailer.
Canopy
Heavy rain can damage both the canopy fabric and the poles if it is allowed to “pocket” on
the fabric. It is very important to have the correct slope in the canopy. The side of the
canopy at the twist poles should be about 19” lower than the side that is attached to the
awning rail on the roof. If heavy rain is anticipated, lower one side to allow adequate run
off.
The canopy is to be removed for winter storage due to winter condensation accumulation.
ALWAYS roll up your canopy dry. If you ever need to roll up the canopy when it is wet,
unroll it withing 24 hours and allow it to dry. Mildew will develop on damp and wet
canopies.
Be sure to follow the list of Do’s and Don’ts below when caring for your canopy.
DO...
• ...Keep your canopy clean. This is the best protection against mildew. Even on
mildew resistant fabric, mildew can grow on accumulated dirt or foreign materials
which remain on the top or bottom surface. This will eventually damage or stain the
fabric. We cannot be responsible for such damage.
• ...Wash down your canopy; brushing lightly with a cloth or soft brush.
• ...Hose your canopy down occasionally (every month) with a garden hose. We
recommend doing this on a hot, sunny day.
• ...Keep the underside of your canopy clean by simply brushing it with a clean
household broom. The underside can be washed in the same manner as the top.
• ...Keep shrubbery and vines away from the canopy, as many bushes contain acid
which can be harmful.
88
Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer
Maintaining Your Investment...
DO NOT...
• ...Fold or roll in extreme cold temperatures.
• ...Drag your canopy across any abrasive surfaces, such as a cement drive.
• ...Get insect spray on the fabric, as some solutions may impair the water repellency of
the fabric and cause staining.
• ...Allow water to stand on the canopy, causing pocketing and possible stretching.
• ...Wash your canopy with a harsh strong solution, or scrub too vigorously with an
abrasive cleaner.
• ...Force or yank your canopy when raising or lowering it. Do it gradually.
• ...Charcoal grill underneath the canopy.
• ...Store the canopy when it is damp or wet. Mildew is a fabric’s greatest enemy and is
caused by dampness. Mildew may grow on the surface of a damp canopy and
permanently stain the fabric.
• ...Permit leaves, twigs, etc. To remain on your canopy as they might cause a staining
of the fabric.
• ...Wrap steel or aluminum hardware with the canopy.
Screen Room
Care should be taken when setting up and putting the screen room away to avoid tears and
cuts. When putting away the deluxe screen room, the curtains should be in the down
position and secured to the bottom with their strings.
1. Wash off any droppings or foreign matter from trees with clear water and keep the
vinyl clean when putting away.
2. DO not roll stakes or hardware with the screen room.
3. Never roll the vinyl screen room up wet for any extended period of time.
4. If mildew is apparent, it should be treated promptly with a light solution of Naphtha
soap and water. A soft brush or cloth is recommended for cleaning vinyl.
FIBERGLASS SCREENING
When possible, the fiberglass screening should be loosely folded, not crushed when
opening and putting away the screen room. Do not allow poles and stakes to punch holes in
the screen.
PANELING
The wall paneling in your trailer is a vinyl covered wood panel. If deep scratches occur,
putty sticks can be used to cover them. These can be obtained from hardware stores and
lumber yards. For decor paneling, replacement vinyl covering can be purchased for repairs
if needed. Your independent, authorized dealer’s parts department can assist you with this.
To clean, use a mild solution of soap and lukewarm water with a soft sponge or cloth. DO
NOT use abrasive cleaners. It could cause the vinyl to scratch and turn dull. Grease spots
and stubborn dirt can be cleaned off with an all-purpose spray cleaner.
VINYL FLOOR
To care for the vinyl floor covering, use a damp mop with water and a mild cleaner. DO
NOT SOAK FLOORING.
Jay Series/Baja/Select Folding Camping Trailer
89
Maintaining Your Investment...
Caution: To avoid problems of “yellowing” linoleum, the manufacturer
recommends to avoid using cleaners that contain oil based solvents (i.e. cleaners
containing lemon oil, Murphy’s Oil Soap, etc.).
COUNTERTOPS
Glass rings, food spills, water spots and smudges usually wipe off with a damp sponge.
Stubborn stains can be removed with a general purpose spray cleaner. Some stains can be
removed by squeezing fresh lemon juice over the stain and allowing the juice to soak for
approximately forty-five minutes. After forty-five minutes, sprinkle baking soda over the
lemon juice and rub with a soft cloth.
Hot pots and pans should be placed on hot pads. Never place a hot iron or lighted cigarettes
on the countertop.
For lasting beauty, avoid using harsh abrasives, scouring powders, peroxide or bleaches.
These may dull the surface making it mor susceptible to staining.
HARDWARE AND SINK OR SHOWER FIXTURES
Use mild dish soap and water to clean these fixtures. Never use harsh chemicals or sprays.
A mild solution of vinegar and water works well to remove hard water spots and stains
from the sink or shower fixtures.
FURNACE MAINTENANCE
Preventive maintenance and safety checks should be performed by a qualified technician at
least once a year, or more, depending on the use of the furnace. Failure to properly maintain
the furnace may void the furnace warranty and can result in unsafe furnace operation.
Preventive maintenance is NOT covered under the warranty. Power should be
disconnected before servicing. Refer to the furnace manufacturer’s supplied instructions
for information regarding the furnace and its maintenance.
. NOTE: To increase motor life, the furnace should be wired directly to the battery.
AIR CONDITIONER
If you have an air conditioner that was installed by your independent, authorized dealer,
consult the information supplied by the air conditioner manufacturer for maintenance
information.
PROPANE SYSTEM
Your propane system is designed to function properly with regular maintenance and
inspection. Make sure that you regularly check for any propane leaks as outlined in the
safety information in this manual, as well as any appliance manufacturer’s supplied
information. It is recommended that you have your system inspected at least annually by a
qualified independent, authorized dealer or propane supplier.

DANGER: DO NOT smoke while changing cylinders or working on
your propane system. See the use, danger and warning instructions
throughout this manual for the propane system.
Propane Cylinders
1. The propane cylinder must be painted with a light color, such as white or silver plate,
to reflect heat and light.
2. Rust, scratches, and/or dents can affect the safety of the cylinder. The D.O.T. requires
that a visual inspection be made prior to each filling.
3. Any cylinder that has been exposed to fire, leaks or appears to be damaged should not
be refilled.
4. A propane cylinder must always be placed in an upright position. Assure that the
cylinder is secured in place prior to moving the vehicle.
5. The D.O.T. requires that propane cylinders be inspected, certified and labeled when
they are twelve years old. (The number of years for certification may vary in your
area.) Following the initial twelve-year period, the cylinder must be certified every
five years.
6. The valve of the cylinder must be CLOSED at all times except when it is connected
to the recreation vehicle propane system or is being refilled.
7. Inspect the cylinder at regular intervals. If there is a problem, have it evaluated by a
qualified technician and discard it, if necessary. Verify with your local propane dealer
that all required inspections and certifications have been completed on the propane
cylinder within the correct time period before refilling the cylinder.
CARBON MONOXIDE (CO) DETECTOR
Maintenance and testing information for your carbon monoxide (CO) detector are supplied
by the CO detector manufacturer. Make sure you read, understand and follow all
instructions and safety requirements to maintain the unit's proper operation. If you have
questions, consult with your independent, authorized dealer and/or contact the CO detector
manufacturer.

STORING YOUR UNIT...
Depending upon your area and where your unit is stored, your camper may be a target for
damage from rodents and insects. To protect your camper, never leave food inside the unit
and ensure that all surfaces are clean. You may want to place rodent control products in the
unit during periods of storage. Mice and other rodents can do a tremendous amount of
damage to the tent, drapes, cushions, etc. particularly during the winter months. Storing
units in fields make them particularly inviting to rodents. Periodically inspect your unit
during storage and seal off any areas which can offer an entry point to rodents or insects.
Please remember to remove any screens or tape you have used to seal openings before you
use the camper again. Special interest publications, such as articles and books offered
through TL Enterprises (Trailer Life, Motorhome, etc.) can offer additional and practical
advice on the proper storage of your camper. Damage from rodents or insects is not
covered under your Jayco Limited Warranty.
When storing your trailer, it is recommended that the battery be unhooked
. NOTE:
to avoid draining the battery.

damage the roof material when removing snow & ice. Excessive weight can damage
the roof, seals, etc. Water leaks and poor fit or operation are the results of this
damage.
CAMPING TRAILER COVERS
Use only breathable fabric camper covers, such as those available through your
independent, authorized dealer, when storing your folding camping trailer.
Caution: DO NOT store the camping trailer under a dark colored cover. Use only
light colored breathable covers to prevent extreme heat. Consult with your
independent, authorized dealer for the proper products to use.
WINTERIZING
Preparing your recreation vehicle for winter is very important for most states and Canada.
Failure to prepare the trailer will cause the supply lines and the water heater to freeze
causing breakage. Repairs due to freezing are not be covered under the terms of your Jayco
Limited Warranty.
Please keep in mind that your trailer was not designed for use during sub-freezing weather.
There is no commodity or product that can be added to the fresh water system to ensure
freeze protection while the system is in use, other than RV antifreeze. Do not drink water
that contains antifreeze. This includes non-toxic RV antifreeze.
