RVIA represents the campground owners as well as the manufacturers.
As long as people keep buying RVs with the warranty situation the way it is the manufacturers are not going to change. Also, the more RVs the dealers sell the longer the wait for warranty repairs.
For the small nit noid stuff I would Call Jayco and ask if they would send the parts for self install. I would only go to the dealer for major items.
My plan is a Factory Service visit in August and when I pick the coach up from that service appointment I'll make an appointment for another visit a month out from warranty expiration. If I don't need it then I'll cancel the appointment.
BTW, we have not had any issues making campground reservations. We have three reservations on the books now (all private rv parks) and all of them have been made within the last two weeks. My daughter and SIL made two reservations within the last 2 weeks with one at a state park and one at a private campground.
