The pattern won't be a problem, they are going to use one piece but it will have to be cut and wrapped around the bathroom wall. When laid down it will meet up with it's self where the seam was originally cut. My concerns are #1, it won't be fastened at the edges, only "held down" by trim, probably quarter round. #2, The trim will eventually work lose and I will be repairing it. #3, I don't want the threshold strip over the seam, it will always be the reminder that it wasn't done right in the first place.
The Jayco service rep told me that their standard is 1 hour service for each foot of trailer so 29 hours. I talked to a flooring guy that does vinyl all the time and he said he wouldn't touch it for less than 40 so I'm guessing that the dealer's tech is going to be pressed to get it done on the cheap.
The bottom line is that if they would just give me the cash that they are going to pay the dealer to replace it I would take care of it myself. When I suggested this to the service rep he told me Jayco wouldn't even consider a cash payment.
I'm going to make one more trip to the dealer and if they hold their position I will let the lawyer handle it.
