Hard to find water leak 30.5 BHLT, and resolution
Hello; This message is to hopefully help any other Jayco owner that discovers a water leak under the camper, but above the underbelly lining.
We had just taken delivery on a brand new 2014 30.5 BHLT and discovered water on the driveway. To make a very long story short, on this model, there are actually two fresh water tanks that are tied together with a hose. At the factory, the stainless steel hose clamp that held on to one of the two tank fittings was tightened too much. This caused a dimple in the hose where it met the tank fitting. When there was any water in the fresh tank, it dripped out from this location as was trapped above the underbelly. When enough water collected, it finally flowed to a low spot and dripped out from the underbelly.
Needless to say, this was frustrating to find and fix (the dealer had to drop the entire underbelly two times to locate this obscure problem). They replaced the hose, and now, so far so good.
We love the camper, and again, the purpose of this message is to help you out if you have a similar problem. Thanks for reading. Robert
