Rock, this is the first year that Jayco rolled the membrane over the edge. 2015 the round edge is brown aluminum and the roof has a dicor seal from front to back at the top edge.

Great idea Rock!
I'll consolidate and repost in a new thread to include pics!

I hope you get your rig back soon! It must have been the shipping agency during transport to FL. I have TPMS (EZTIRE) for truck and RV ( 10 sensors) to include temperature sensors and over 6000+ miles we have never had any abnormal high temps reading... I believe it set to alarm when above 120 degrees... I have received alarms for low temps during cold mornings...

But I will continue to keep an eye on it... I do have IR gun to validate TPMS temps...

Btw are you using your truck jack to jack up RV??

I really wish u did not say that. Now I will be looking at my roof daily, thankfully we have a two year warranty. If they had a bad batch of glue or the person doing it did it wrong that is one thing. But this could be a big issue if the change they made is not working.

I'm wondering if the extreme heat of the south did it.
But his big staple spacing didn't help matters.

Well mine is in Fl in the sun everyday. If staple spacing did that than even closer stapling will vibrate out. My wheel well under cover staples are all falling out. When ever I get my unit back if ever I am removing the staples and installing screws. Staples suck but SAVE MONEY in cost and time. That is why u can no longer staple down roof shingles in Fl every roof that was stapeled failed when the wind hit. And we all know how our RVs flex, bend and shake during travel

Gents,
Finally got around to making a separate thread under Fifth Wheels, "Potential roof Issue - 2016 Jayco Pinnacle"...

Currently one week in, 1680 miles into another trip.... We truly love our rig!

New FBTS owner

Hope you don't mind me jumping in here. I'm a newbie so new to the FBTS that I don't even have it yet. Just ordered it a week ago - set up the way we want from the factory and don't expect to get delivery for another 8-12 weeks. In fact we were just informed a couple of days ago that it will end up being a 2017 model - one of the first I suppose.

My wife & I have just retired and are jumping into the RV lifestyle with both feet, not full-timers but we plan to use our unit to see as much of the continent over the next few years as we can. We were tenters and soft-top campers when we were first married, but this is going to be radically different!

Also have a new truck on order to haul with - 2016 Silverado 3500HD with Duramax Diesel.

I have already picked up a lot from you folks here just from reading through your posts and expect to pick up a lot more as time passes.

Thanks for letting me on here - I'll try to contribute as soon as I have something worthwhile to add.

Steve

I second the WELCOME Ste14mi!

You certainly made the right choice with ordering a Jayco 36FBTS!!!

We are new owners and RV'ers as of Oct 2015 with our FBTS. We have learned LOADS from This thread TexasRT kicked off... Massive amounts of RV experience here...

We already have over 7500 miles on ours and LOVIN every minute... We marvel in the amenities the FBTS offers everyday...
I also like your choice of pull vehicle! We couldn't be happier with how ours pulls...

Feel fee to ask any questions ... This group will definitely have an answer !! Feel free to message as well!!

Again, Congrats on your FBTS selection !!

I haven't posted in this thread about my FBTS since December 8th. At that time we camped at Maumelle COE, in Little Rock. We had been on a trip to Mississippi and detailed some of our problems with the super slide and lower body panels. Our dealer was great on those repairs and had us on the road in about an hour. On our return trip to Arkansas, another of the lower body panels (called "J Metal" by the service writer) came loose on the ODS. Called the dealer and made arrangements to take the unit for the repair along with a list of other warranty items to fix (none major, other than the J metal). The service writer was good about keeping us posted on the progress. He called and advised they were ready for us to come and pick it up. We went over the repair list and they had missed one item. He called back in a day or so and "the good news was, they had finnished all the warranty items..... Bad news was, they hit our FBTS, backing another unit in." Long story ... Short version, got our FBTS back Wednesday and we are camped! The dealership fixed all the damage and will replace the roof at the end of this camping season. The ladder on the other trailer somehow put a small tear in my roof when it came loose. My roof is patched and good to go, until we take it in. I know Rock and a couple of others have had their units damaged at the dealerships also. One of our camping neighbors told us yesterday, it happened to them a couple of years ago. We are glad to be able to be going again.
