I looked at a 2012 Jayco Seneca 37RB at an RV show over the weekend and loved it all but the price! We currently are 5th wheelers, but are looking at going to a motorhome. Any Jayco Seneca 37RB owner's comments, opinions, and advice is welcome and desired! Does anyone REALLY use the outdoor entertainment center? I think it would be an option I could well do without.

Don't do it.

You know you are going to buy it. You want it. Just negotiate your best price and go ahead and pull the trigger. No one on this forum can talk you out of it! You have already made up you mind. Buy it and enjoy it, outdoor entertainment center and all!

I have a 2007 34SS Seneca. The outdoor entertainment system, which consisted of two small inexpensive speakers and an in expensive head unit, didn't work when I purchased the unit used. So I tried to see if I could fix it. It had gotten wet and the internal electronics were all corroded. I simply removed it as it didn't appear to me to be worth the effort to replace it. If I were selecting options, I wouldn't spend the money.

Also, as to your general question, I have found our unit very acceptable. We have had problems that originated at the factory. Since the unit was used and not under warranty I fixed them myself. If I had paid MSRP, I would have very upset. Although most were readily fixed, the problems I encountered were simply the result of poor workmanship in the final assembly of the unit. So be advised that I would suspect that you will encounter problems. On balance however, I would not give up my unit. My wife and I love it, notwithstanding the problems that shouldn't have been.

Recently I started lusting after something bigger, more luxurious after a show. I almost bit, didn't, came home, took a week in my PAID FOR perfectly wonderful rig took a deep breath, cooled off. I'm glad I did.

There's a new motorhome in my future but the next one won't be an impulse buy.

P.S. The salesman is still calling, the one time low price keeps getting better. Amazing.

When someone tells you to buy the same rig they own, listen, they might be right. When they tell you to buy a different rig then they own, really pay attention, they probably know something you don't.

Figured out the depreciation when you drive it off the lot yet? Unless you're very wealthy, that alone should be your turnoff.

If you really are very wealthy, pm me - I can help!
