Unhappy Came close to buying the Seismic 4212

This was a close call. After months of research and shopping I narrowed my Next Purchase to the 2016 Seismic 4212. Have an appt. with the Dealer to purchase the 4212 tomorrow . After shocked on reading all your posts I am cancelling my purchase appt. and back to shopping for my next rig. So bummed this unit is not the quality I thought it would be.

We love our's. A few small, easily fixed issues. ..Would do it all over again if I had the change...You'll find NO 5er or TH that won't have some issues, no matter the brand name or the price....I've found this out having purchased new TT's and 5er's over the last 25 years..before that I usually bought used...You won't find one that is perfect...not going to happen....and if Jayco's Quality wasn't "that" good, I'd doubt they'd offer a 2 yr warranty on their product...most only offer a 1 year warranty.

We have complained for months that the main slide was not operating properly. CW keep saying it was normal. Finally they were operating in the shop and the whole thing failed. Took 8 people to get it in this far............ our troubles continue

Sorry to hear of the problem, but at least it happened again at the right time.
Hopefully that puts a fire under someone's butt to get action ASAP.

We have had a lot of issues with the push pull pins on the leveling legs shearing off and bending.

Also the fuse located in the battery compartment had to be changed out from a OEM 50 amp to a 80 amp resettable. It left us stranded with dead batteries.
The tv mount in the bedroom that comes out od the dresser completely off the wall. They missed the studs...........

I bought my Seismic 4212 just over a year ago and thought that if I spent this much money on a camper I would get more quality. I was dead wrong. I have had issues with the main (living room) slide from day one. I picked it up from dealer which is 9 hours from where I live. Got it home and was about to use it when the slide would not go all the way in. It was still sticking out over a foot. I had to have a mobile repair service come out to work on it. Got it working but was still very slow. I took it on first trip and ended up having to physically push the slide in while holding the button (luckily it came with a remote). I was able to do this on a couple trips before it was too difficult to move at all. It is really embarrassing when people are admiring your camper and you have to say, "Can you come help me push this slide in?" So I call my local Jayco dealer for warranty repair and the first thing they ask is if I bought the camper from them. Well I didn't so they tell me they are booked and they don't make appointments and to call back in a month. This went on for 3 months until they finally told me that they would not work on it because I did not buy it from them. This is a Jayco authorized dealer!! (Hope's Camper in Monroe, LA) So I called Jayco to file a complaint and was told they could not do anything about it. I ended up having to take it to another Jayco dealer 2 hours away. After 2 months of being work on and every mechanical part of the slide being replaced (system board, motors, tracks) they said it had been fixed. It still did not fix the problem. On the second use at the campground I couldn't get the slide to go in all the way. Luckily it went in far enough to pull home. I now found that the slide has ripped part of the floor up in the kitchen. It is now worse than before. So I am back at square one with the same problem and now damage to the camper. I don't know if all campers are having this problem or I just got the lemon. We will see what Jayco is going to do to solve the problem. They have been very nice so far but not very helpful. At this point I would expect them to step up and replace the camper but I know better than that. Right now I just have an $85K piece of scrap metal that can't be used.

Ours has been in shop since May 1 when the slide completely failed, I have had to push on it for a year to get it in. 300:1 motors are not heavy enough to move this slide in and out. Jayco is replacing with 500:1 and more rollers. Outriggers were bent also. parts arrived 2 weeks ago, only sent one side. The rest of the parts got here yesterday, going to check on it now. We canceled our trip to Alaska due to this constant issues with this T/H. We have no trust left with this unit. It has been in shop now 9 months of ownership of 14 months we have had it.

Make sure these aren't obstructed and are functioning properly.

I had this issue on my brand new unit, but not the toy hauler. Was driving me nuts because I kept getting the water from the bottom of the pedestal. I new it wasn't the holding tank since there was no water when looking down the main pipe with the foot valve open. Since the dealer couldn't do anything for awhile I pulled the toilet. In the rear of the toilet is where the spray nozzle is mounted. There was a very fine hair line cracked in the nozzle just after where the rubber hose is clamped. After talking to a service person, I guess I'm not the first with the same problem in a new unit. Just impossible to see without removal of the toilet. Just something further you can check out....
