Hello to all you Jayco owners, my name is Tom and I recently bought a new econobox model of Jayco(the 174BH). This is my wife and I's second rv which the first was a 2007 Hi-Lo; The Hi-Lo was a very well made trailer and never had any issues with it, but my wife and I sold it a couple years ago due to it sitting around and not being used. This year, wife and I decided to get back into camping but we wanted something with less weight to pull around which generally means the bare necessities in a camper therefore the Jayco SLX comes into view.We like the floor plan and it had everything we wanted except "park tv cable hookup" (which I'm installing now). Pulled the 174BH home thirty miles from the Orlando dealership and once home discovered the wall paneling was separating between the dinette and queen bed. Have to hitch it up and pull it back to dealer thirty miles away to correct. Hopefully this is only a fluke incident and not the way our time is going to be spent with the Jayco brand. Anyway, just wanted to say hello and let you'll know I'm a tinkerer,welder/fabricator and a/c man so if I can be of some help to you whether on the site or on the road let me know.

Welcome to the Forum. I have owned several Jayco's and believe me, all brands have their problems. At least, Jayco warranty's theirs for 2 years. That should give you time to find any and all problems and get them fixed. I used to be a native Floridian, at least for my first 60 years. Born and raised in Plant City. Retired 10 years ago and moved to Vienna, GA. The whole county only has one red light. Talk about back in time.
Maybe we will meet on the road someday or if you are ever this way, we are right off I-75 at the 109 mile marker in South Georgia.

Welcome! I just joined the forums too yesterday after buying a 26BH from Orlando RV. We too had a pop up that we decided to sell for the comforts of a travel trailer and not having to "set up" camp every time we went out, or not taking as much time to set up.

Steven, hopefully Orlando Rv will do us right as far as warranty work is concerned. Hopefully you won't have any claims. We bought our Jayco 174BH from Orlando rv on March 17th of this year.

Hi all, we are north of you up in Volusia county. We bought a slightly larger 31rlds last year. We love it so far. Yea we too had a laundry list, nothing major but small issues. The only real issue we have had is that the service dept is really slow to respond and honestly we feel itis the weakest link. You call and they don't answer, voicemail is full, and Jayco seems to always take 1 - 2 months to send even a light bulb.
Just be strong and push to get things handled. Make sure every item is listed out and if it is small, email them a picture because they will have to order the part. It makes no sense to pull your trailer there to just get looked at and return 2 months later.

Welcome to the club, this is a great place to hang out.

My first hope is that I have no warranty items to begin with and if/when I do that they are not a PITA to deal with. We are headed out on our maiden/shakedown trip this weekend in it. I just finished installing 30amp service at my house so she's been plugged in and everything thus far works as it should!
