1) USB port charging center popped out of the wall again - this has been fixed twice already
2) the bottom of one of the wardrobes has almost completely fallen out. Nothing heavy in there, so it's odd.
3) strap to keep the Murphy bed down broke off
4) to top kitchen drawer is closing crooked - the top locks in while the bottom is still out.
5) the entire back portion of the dinette (the side that doesn't back up to a wall) popped off.
6) the bathroom faucet won't shut off. We had to turn the hot water off to keep it from running all day/night.
It's frustrating because we are brand new rv'ers and we truly want to love our jayco, but if this is what it's like on trip 2, what is it going to be like in a few years?! I'm sitting at a beautiful campground writing this - and hoping the last few days of our trip can be trouble free.
Yes, sometimes it does seem like that. However, Jayco is pretty good about warranty coverage, so that is in your favor.
In my opinion you need to take care of the small issues on your own, otherwise the trailer will stay far too long at the dealer. It can take them weeks to do even small repairs. Jayco will send the parts directly to you if you call them. Once you get through the new trailer issues you should be OK.
Just for comparison here is the list from my trailer.
No issues with appliances, IOW Refer, Heat, AC, Water, Etc have all been perfect. However...
1) Bedroom sliding door fell off on first trip - held up by 4 ridiculously small screws.
2) Rippling trim on both sides (outside) where the skirt meets the wall.
3) Bubble in front outside panel when it gets hot.
4) Slide bulb seal comes out of its track every time I close the slide.
5) Small leak in shower enclosure.
6) Lots of screws driven in at angles.
7) Had to put shutoff valves on fresh water overflow lines to prevent water from siphoning out when driving.
