Initial quality poll

Initial Quality poll. How would you rate the overall quality of your RV AS DELIVERED. One through ten, one being terrible ten being outstanding. This poll is for those that purchased new, not used..

We need everyone that is relevant to vote in these quality polls so we can use the info as a reference point. Many times only problems are reported on forums so these polls will show just how good or bad the experience has been for all members. Please Vote.

This poll is just that, a poll on initial quality. Report specific problems in the Jayco Problems and Issues forum. Civil discussion is welcome BUT rants, vents, and brand bashing will not be tolerated in this thread.

We have a latch on the screen door that came loose, and a main breaker that seems to be a little sensitive. Other wise, not really any complaint. Well, may the crease in the wall paper by the kitchen.... but really?

The only issues we had with all three of our JAYCO units 01, 08 & 15 were supplier related. Carefree, Coleman and Norcold which is totally out of JAYCO's control.

The first year we had a big slide motor go out while away from home. Our local dealer coordinated the repairs. Had a pin hole leak in aluminum rim and it was handled quickly. Also had front cap cracks which was handled quickly.

Brake shoes were contaminate with grease from the factory, fixed by Jayco and Dexter under warranty.

Jayco quality

The problems we had were neutral wire lose behind breaker panel and a 6 inch slit in the main awning but we really like the finish of our product

I rate the quality high based on the value. There are some design and fit/finish issues that I would change, but you have to expect that on such a reasonably priced unit.

After initial inspection and after 1st camping trip no mechanical or significant cosmetic issues encountered, no return trip to dealer for warranty work. I did have to pop a few decal bubbles with a pin, but that was the end of that, no bubbles to this day.

First trip out the refrigerature was getting warm,flame was lite but very small. Got home and checked it out, gas line was kinked. Gas regulator was always green even with empty gas tanks. Some moulding came off.

In 2014, plenty of issues, many related to substandard dealer. Now in 2016, much much better and a great dealer makes any of the few minor issues very tolerable and easily managed

I would give it a 4 - 5.
No issues with appliances, IOW Refer, Heat, AC, Water, Etc have all been perfect.
However.
1) Bedroom slider fell off on first trip - held up by 4 ridiculously small screws.
2) Rippling trim on both sides (outside) where the skirt meets the wall.
3) Bubble in front outside panel when it gets hot.
4) Slide bulb seal comes out of its track every time I close the slide.
5) Small leak in shower enclosure.
6) Lots of screws driven in at angles.
7) Had to put shutoff valves on fresh water overflow lines to prevent water from siphoning out when driving.
IMO all of these are Jayco issues, do to lack of QC. The various appliances built by other companies have been trouble-free.
