What Did You Do To Your Jayco TODAY?

Emptied our 264bh out ahead of the coming blizzard- taking it for a last tow on Tuesday to trade it in for a class c. Bittersweet, lots of great memories in this trailer!

My OEM one failed this past September after 5 years. I full time but don't use the pump a lot. I'm sure it was a diaphragm failure since the motor still ran fine. I picked up a replacement which was slightly higher gpm and pressure since the original one isn't made any longer. I could have bought a rebuild kit for the old one, but I was at a car race for 5 days and needed fresh water now. The kit would have to have been ordered and he replacement pump was in stock......Sooooo.

Hi Ed,

I pulled it apart and the diaphragm looked fine. How did you know yours was bad?

I opened the old one up, after installing the new pump and had water. I dried the diaphragm out and then placed it horizontal and poured a little bit of water on it. It started leaking through, but I couldn't see the pin hole without knowing where to look. With the hole in the diaphragm it wouldn't self prime as it was supposed to. It was a very small hole and took some time for the beginnings of a drip formed. With it trying to prime and air leaking through that small hole.......No water.

Picked up this new unit on the 18th. I watched the rain pour in the passenger window on my 2016 Precept 31ul. There is a gap of about quarter inch between the window and the outside wall. Drivers side is pretty much flush with the wall. My dealer said to fill it with silicone or bring it in after February, their service department is booked till March. Jayco or the dealer must have tried to stop the leak because there is some silicone over the top but not extending past the roof gutter. I don't know if I should try to tighten the screws from the inside or cover the edges with duct tape?

I'm watching as my Jayco slowly gets buried under what may turn out to be more than 30 inches of snow. First snow of the year, and it turns out to be the blizzard of the century.

I hope that's not too much weight for the roof!
