Dropped the fifth off at the dealer for storage, and along with the list of other usual maintenance items, I asked him to look at the outside left wall. I had noticed what looked like the outline of the vertical framing bumping out from the fiberglass skin. Runs from the bottom of the side, all the way to the roof. Did not appear to be a bubble, and was not any softer than other areas. On closer look, we noted that the shorter vertical frame members from the top of the slide opening to the roof were also visible. His quick guess was "delamination due to water". Oh my....
They're going over it to first determine if/how water may have gotten in, and what may be going on. Mind, I depend on them to do roof inspections, and it has never had an issue, and the last inspection was just before our last trip a little over a month ago.
If it is delamination, I'm afraid it may mean taking the whole side off the fifth for the repair. Ouch!
Anyone have tales to tell about something similar, and cost? Trying to steel myself for the worst case! If it is bad, while I really trust my dealer, does Jayco directly do these kind of repairs? While it would be a multi day trip, and maybe even a return trip, it might be worth it to have it factory done, if it would save $$.
And yes, we are a couple of years out of warranty......
