14th Sep 2021

Every Jayco RV is fitted with a control panel, this is the heart of your van and controls the many different features available to you.

It’s where you can control the lights, charge your batteries or any other 12 Volt appliances.

The control panel is also used to operate the hot water system and power your Jayco RV.

In this video, Chris will demonstrate the features and functions of the control panel on a Jayco Journey Outback 19.61-3 Caravan.

These instructions are applicable to All-Terrain Pop Tops, Journey Caravans, All-Terrain Caravans and optional on Starcraft Pop Tops, Journey Pop Tops, Expanda Pop Tops, Starcraft Caravans, Expanda Caravans, Work’N’Play Caravans and Basestations Caravans.
