That is what I call customer service since I'm 30 miles from the dealer. This was their suggestion. I didn't even have to ask. I am sure glad I purchased locally.
Ed, that toilet valve leak seems to be fairly prevalent in units made in 2009 or 10. The problem is the leaking is intermittent and only when you partially depress the foot pedal, so it can be hard to detect just where the water is coming from.

Our tt is over two years old now. We have spent over six months camping in it and our issues were all resolved before that 2yr mark. I'm glad Crabman posted his problem with the toilet as we were able to get Jayco to send us that part before our warranty expired. It is sitting in the tt waiting to be used. Hopefully it won't, but we have has some errant and elusive puddling appear. Poor thing (tt), it's been sitting since late July. We need to take it out again!

Toilet Leaking question


Can you elaborate on your toilet leaking problem? Mine leaked this past weekend when flushed. We were hooked up to city water connection and it seemed to leak at point just beneath the seat in the back where the water line hooks into toilet.

Have to mention one more good thing. I have camped in the cold, but never so much wind. It has been blowing 25 mph for three days now and down to the low 30s at night. I am amazed at how tight this trailer is. I would have expected it to be a little more drafty. The floor and inside the cabinets are a little cool, but it has been very comfortable inside (I have open underbelly). I have mainly been running the furnace rather than a space heater and it has really not run that much.

I have to agree, Terry. Even though the Jayflights are marginally insulated without the thermal package I have camped with it down to 24* in comfort.

Our first TT was a 2010 Jayfeather 24T. A great unit, perfect "starter". Had a couple of minor cabinet concerns, screws pulled out. No biggie, dealer handled perfectly. However, at about 18 months from build date, the exterior front fiberglass panel began to delaminate just below the roof line. Dealer said to bring it in, they would take pictures and send them up to Jayco, go from there. Well, we ended up trading up to a 2012 Jay Flight 29 RLDS before having the 24 inspected. Really thought I wanted an Eagle (like the slick look) but we were leary of the long term durability, didn't want to deal with delamination issues down the road. Besides, our dealer made us an offer we couldn't refuse. The 29 is a really nice unit, perfect for the 2 of us.

Its been one year since I posted this thread, which means its now been 3 years today since we picked up the 28BHS. I think we have used the trailer more this year then the previous two, we started camping in January. So here`s the THREE year report:

Once again no major issues and darn few minor ones this year.

I had to replace the seal in the ptrap under the kitchen sink, it tended to come loose during travel and would not tighten up properly due to the seal being distorted.
I resealed a few places on the roof with Dicor that looked a bit iffy.

I spray painted a few small rusty places on the frame.

All appliances and systems continue to work properly.

Still using the original tiny Interstate deep cycle group 24 battery, no signs of that weakening yet.

Tires look good, but approaching 4 yrs old as they are older then the trailer. No signs of abnormal wear.

No apparent brake issues/noises that some of the others with 2010`s experienced. Just a bit of squeaking when first starting out.

The trailer has never been back to a dealer or RV service center for any reason, I do all the little stuff myself.

I also cannot think of any mods I did this year, I guess for now I`m where I want to be on that front. I`ve also spent enough for one year buying the "new" `04 2500.

So its been another good year of camping and overall we are very pleased with the unit and will be keeping it for quite some time. The new TV makes the towing experience so much more relaxing now that I have the 2500. I hope to have as good of a report one year from now.
