So I have a few issues on my unit I would like some advice on. Our warranty runs out next June, we have about 10k miles on the trailer now
1.) Am I being unreasonable with these issues on a travel trailer.
2.) Will Jayco even attempt do do anything here under the 2 year warranty
3.) Am I better off to engage Jayco directly and have them send me parts to address it, or ask the dealer to do it
Several areas of the wallpaper/contact paper/whatever they use are starting to come up, it feels like there is a wall seam beneath the area and its probably just from road vibration. It has caused probably 6-7 areas in the trailer to have bubbles under the wallpaper. I am really not sure why they didn't just put a 1" transition strip over the wall panelling seams to prevent this as they did in other areas, and frankly, I would be happy with that. All the areas that are showing separation don't have these transition strips on them
Several areas along the bottom of the cabinets (especially the island) are bubbling. It appears they have swelled from being wet. The only things I can possibly think of that would have allowed them to get wet are
- Mopping with a swiffer (not likely)
- The Grey tank being full and actually leaking thru the air intake under the sink while traveling
- Water running off the top of the slides after they are retracted that the seals didn't clear off
This would be pretty time consuming to fix, but it frankly annoys me. If they had just bothered to use actual wood on the bottom of these cabinets and not pressed board, this would not be an issue. I don't know how they can expect that these are going to stay immaculately dry.
The facia on the left of kitchen slide has also swelled, but it makes contact with the floor, which is an issue in itself, and actually broke when sliding out recently, That piece is just going to have to be replaced (and shortened) so it doesn't damage the floor, I have to be very careful when sliding it in and out and sometimes lift the trim away, the floor seems to sometimes be in contact with it, sometimes not, not sure if the plywood is swelling, or if its just how the frame happens to be twisted in a given parking spot, etc.
