This plastic fastening strip has a weak spot where it will split at the radius and allow water to enter at the corners so make sure you look with an eagle eye. Also from the outside to will see a rain gutter just above the tent end that flips down, you must get on a ladder and inspect the screws that hold the gutter in place and make sure they were driven in straight so water cannot enter easily. I say that because jayco did not include a rubber washer with this screw to keep water from entering. This is something you can add when you have time.
While standing in the trailer Remove the white AC cover panel and you will see 4 bolts ( 1 in each corner) that hold the AC unit to the roof, well between the AC unit and the roof is a gasket that keeps the water out and if these 4 bolts are not snugged down " lightly" it will leak and you should check yearly.
In the bathroom check for a soft spot in the floor between the toilet and the tub because people are careless about the shower curtain being tight against the wall.
I don't know if your year 2007 if the TV was mounted on the counter top next to the stove or on the wall with a swivel bracket. If it's on the counter then you might want to call Jayco and ask if there's backing on that wall to mount the TV so you can have more useable counter top space in your kitchen work area. I think in 2008 it was mounted on the wall.
I don't mean to scare you on your fun home away from home and we all have these little problems I just don't want you to have any surprises.
This is great advice. I discovered some time after we bought our trailer that our roof-mounted AC was BARELY screwed in at the factory. You may be able to see this without removing the cowl from the ceiling.
The tenting comment is also spot on in our experience. We've had two tents replaced under warranty due to the plastic bead splitting around several screw heads, and as the vinyl has shrunk over time we ended up with daylight and holes to the outside appearing around the corners. this is caused by the factory (or dealership) driving the screws in too tightly, but I believe they should probably be using some sort of channel piece or washer to spread out the force a little more. They actually do this along the sides of the tenting, but not the top.
I'll add that we had issues with the cabinetry inside on the front baggage compartment. This is just held in by staples but the panel was loose when we took possession of ours.
We bought new.
