Angry Broken Fiberglass Shower!

Has anyone had this happen to them. 2016 Jayco 321RSTS owned for 17 months. Went on a long weekend and when I took a shower the base of the shower actually broke. A hole and cracks all around the drain. OK, I know, your too heavy. 6', 210 lbs., so I do not think so! Have taken many showers in this unit. We are hoping Jayco covers it.

Why would they not? Are you the original owner?

When I looked at a new 26xd the shower floor was very soft. Looked at another model jayco next to it and it was solid. I think jayco may have a qc issue with bracing under the showers.

I know they do. We completely rebuilt ours underneath. Big pain in the . . . Another underbuilt, built to fail, on the cheap, design and assembly flaw. If you are keeping the Jayco and plan on using the shower, get a new pan and rebuild it yourself correctly. Add it to the list.

The problem of this situations is; because round the drain they don't put support.
Neglect manufacturing is that called. Hope Jayco steps up on this one. Good luck!

They used to put a styrofoam block under them.

Spoke with dealer and they said they will not be able to get the part until sometime in December. We are scheduled to leave December 18th for a trip to St.Louis. This is crazy. What kind of dealer network does Jayco have? Can we "swing" by the factory on our way to St. Louis and get it fixed? Discouraged!
