Warranty repairs

Just picked up my brand new 2015 jay flight 26bh Saturday.Already have a list of warranty repair work that needs done.

Split beam inside one of the cabinets it appears the screw mounting it to the wall was over tightened at the factory

Pee trap for the kitchen sink is leaking there is a small chip in the edge of the pipe.

One of the decals on the side has a crack in it.

Didn't think about it till I got home but there something wrong with the brakes.They do work but cranking my gain all the way up on my controler will not lock the brakes up.I think they are out of adjustment or they over greased the bearings and contaminated the shoes.

When I picked up the trailer the deadbolt didn't work,I noticed them and there repair was to lower the metal part the lock goes threw on the door frame 1/2 a inch now there is hole on the door frame from the old screw hole that I'm not to happy with.

Anyone else have this many issues with there new trailer?If so did everything get corrected?

I'll comment of the brakes, my previous 26bh came from the factory way over greased. The seal was blown on 2 of the 4 hubs. It appears common, because my second TT did too - although it was bought private party used and the previous owner swore he didn't grease them.

Others have had considerable punch lists too, and seem to get everything resolved. The quality of your dealer will have a lot of impact of your satisfaction.

All my brakes were full of grease when I took possession. Jayco and Dexter replaced all 4 brake assemblies. I have noticed a few wood splits but have never bothered to try and fix them. They have not moved in 4+years.

Sorry you have to deal with them so soon.

Yep...I remember on my 2010 5er I had at least 10 items on my "punch list" within the first week. Some of the items were very noticeable...very disappointed that the dealer did not already have them fixed.

Warranty repairs

Just picked up our x18d on April 3. All three canvas beds are mold-stained & water damaged. When I opened the awning, a lot of water came out. Must have been packed up wet last fall when dealer took delivery.

Disappointed? Heck yes, particularly for a brand new purchase (and I NEVER buy new.. so this is a big deal).

However, dealer ordered three canvasses & mattresses, no questions asked. Also apologized & said they were ashamed it left the lot like that.

Work is yet to be done, but thus far I am happy I bought something with a warranty... because with my luck who knows what I would have ended up with.

Sorry you're dealing with issues. Here's hoping your dealer treats you right.

Seems that Jayco finds it less expensive to have the dealer do warranty work than do it right at the factory.
Guess that's where the 2 yr. warranty comes in handy, even though it can be a hassle.

I have had five cabinet doors come apart at the seams. It looked like there was no glue just one nail in each corner. At first I thought my cabinets were made on a Sunday and the Amish craftsmen were off. Dealer told me Jayco outsources the cabinet doors.

We've owned our 2013 Eagle 316RKDS for 1.5 years now and we're very unhappy with the "quality control". We also had a split wood beam in a closet from a screw. lights in the ceiling that are crooked. bottoms of cabinets not finished let alone stained, mitred corners that look as if a 5 yr old did them. the front of the unit outside had to be repainted as it faded off to nothing within 8 months. shower faucet and bathroom faucets had to be replaced after stripping. Kitchen faucet also had to be replaced. And that's the minor stuff. my main gripe is that the "wallpaper" put on the walls behind the stove, -- the top was measured to short, so it was "patched" but the patch doesn't reach the walls on either side. Jayco does not want to fix this as that wallpaper is under the kitchen cabinets. but this shouldn't matter.
poor design also plays into factor here. The monitor panel is so high on the wall that I can't read what button is what unless I'm on a stool. Can't reach the light in the bedroom, why isn't there a wall switch? The fan for the bathroom is over the toilet, can't be reached unless one stands ON the toilet. Again, why isn't there a switch?
Overall, just poor quality control. I love my floorplan, even tho the bedroom is a little tight and making the bed is a chore. Such a shame because it is a pretty unit.
It's a 4 yr purchase until we retire, and at that time we're looking at a Allegro Red 37PA to go full time in.
As far as Jayco? I'd never buy another one. I sneer/laugh to myself when I read how they think they are a top of the line product.

This 2014 Greyhawk is our 5th RV. It is by far the poorest quality unit we have owned. We have had it 1 1/2 years and it has spent a total of 50-60 days in dealerships for repairs and we still have more issues. We are wanting to sell it but the financial beating we would take is hard to swallow. This unit has had more issues that the other four RVs combined. We are now considering trying to trade it in on a 8-10 year old unit to reduce the cost of trading. So much for starting retirement with a new unit. I would never recommend buying a Jayco product to anyone.
