2009 Jayco G2 32BHDS
Bought the unit new in Feb 2010 from Trail Center, Charleston, SC. Have discovered 2 major leaks causing concealed structural damage/rot. Was able to pull the couch out of the front slide out and repair the front left corner floor by cutting a hole in the wall and repairing the damage. Had to replace a section of the floor (14 x 16") and also replacing some of the wood studs. I am now trying to find the leak that has caused the damage on the left front part of the unit. Have been trying for the last 4 days to isolate the leak. I cut out a 4" wide strip in the closet wall on the left back side of the closet and also a 4" wide strip in the stowage compartment. I found major rot in the studs (some were rotten thru) beginning about2 feet from the top of the unit.
This is my second Travel Trailer and I'm very disappointed with the quality of this unit. I thought Jayco produced a better quality trailer and, yes I have inspected the caulking as recommended annually. Also, had problems with the irregular tire wear and had to have the axles aligned which cost me $200.00
Has anyone had to deal with Jayco concerning structural damage due to water leaks? My unit was built 8/08 so this Aug it will be 5 years old. This post is not
sour grapes against Jayco, it is just that I have a major problem with my unit.
Any advice or information will be greatly appreciated.
