2015 29QBS - First Trip Tub-Shower Support Improper
Just got back from my first outing with my brand new Jay Flight 29 QBS. The camper is beautiful and everything worked great. BUT...when we were taking a shower each of us felt like we were standing on a half supported tub/shower. It was so unstable that you could see the tub become deformed from your weight (178lbs). So... I just came in from opening the access panel to see what was going on and I have to say there was some really poor work done supporting the shower. They use a piece of plywood with 4 2x4 legs about 3" high. The problem is they placed it all the way against the side of the tub enclosure closest to the toilet leaving no support at all on the other side. A little more observation revealed the reason was because the water lines and the drain line is positioned exactly where the support would have to be. The easy solution would have been to use a piece of plywood that was maybe 6" wider so the 2x4 support legs would be over the plumbing on BOTH sides not just one side. Cheap fix WHILE IT'S BEING BUILT! Now it would require removing the tub surround and the tub. I was able to slide this crappy little support platform over to support more of the tub and also added one additional 2x4 support. It isn't what it should be but it will work for now. Since I have booked trips every other weekend for the next 3 months I don't want to bring it for a warranty repair on shoddy work IF they would even entertain the idea. I also see many other people posting with same issue. What the heck Jayco, it can't be saving that much money by shorting a piece of plywood 6"! Or is it that the people building at light speed can't take the time to use proper wood? What a shameful reflection on Jayco build quality. They should be embarassed.
