Bought new Jay Flight 23FB

My wife & I are very impressed with our new trailer. The fit & finish are very impressive, except for the rubber roof & the under belly. The roof material has a bubble about 1/4 " high, 1 1/2" wide & about 6 " long.

The under belly is kind of irregular & it rests on the rear axle. You can imagine how it takes a pounding when hitting bumps. The Jayco dealer is hopefully going to fix the roof & under belly this week.

Has anyone else had these problems? So far, other than these problems, we love the trailer.

Should we try for a replacement unit or trust the dealer will do a quality repair?

We, too, had an issue with the underbelly (although we might be talking about two different things here...ours is a plastic cover that is attached to the frame and makes for a flat surface enclosing the tanks and the underside of the trailer) - It looked like after it was put on, they'd tested the brakes and found a problem. Rather than remove all the underbelly, they simply cut it and taped it up afterwards....of course, it didn't hold! Dealer "fixed" it, although not necessarily to my satisfaction; he used a different kind of tape, and lots of it, to seal the belly. It seems to have worked fine, just not what I'd expected.

Roof looks good

I trust my dealer with any repairs. They deal with factory fixer upers all the time. Discuss the repairs before you leave it with em. Tell em you dont want the underbelly taped up but replaced or repaired to factory specs. If you dont talk about it you have no excusses. By nature he is gonna fix it as cheap as possible, but if he is a reputable dealer he should want it fixed right. To answer your ? every new trailer goes back in for some repair probly.

Welcome to the Jayco Owners Forum BillyDean! Our underbelly wasn't completely secured all the way around the edges. The dealer added some screws and it seems to be staying put after about 3000 miles on the road. I would suggest heeding Barrelslime's advice regarding Jayco replacement of the entire underbelly cover if it has been comprised by slicing it across the middle.
