I have begun the process of contacting Jayco but I wanted to see if anyone has experienced a similar problem.
I received an email reply from my Jayco HQ POC. Jayco is "planning" to manufacture a toe kick on the cabinet to allow the slide out floor to clear the cabinet. I was told this change has not been implemented yet so just be aware this may or may not happen.

"If" this fix is implemented, I wonder how Jayco will address the units already shipped?

That is poor engineering! Another reason to do a thorough PDI. I wouldn’t have taken it out of dealers parking lot like that.

Great point. Jayco knows they miscalculated the clearance of the 25RB's slide out flooring when closed.

My dealer said last week I'm on schedule to receive my 25RB in the next 2-3 weeks. I will know then how Jayco fixed this issue and will post back.

I wonder if the 2021 25RB model year represents the first time "vinyl" was utilized in lieu of carpet?

Bob
Iím told the answer is yes, this is new for those produced in 2020 for the 20201 season.

My guess is they will address only the ones who complain. Iíve got a reply form a well known YouTube dealership in another forum venue and he said ď Itís how the engineers designed it to be.Ē Iíd guess itís designed to last about as long as the warranty!

My BIL 2021 25RB 'arrived' at the RV dealer approx. 6-8 weeks ago and the issue hadn't been corrected. He did have the dealer generate a service warranty claim to Jayco....., hasn't heard anything to-date.

BIL hasn't towed his 25RB of the dealer's lot yet.

Jayco fixed their mistake. They made a toe kick (or notched out) the kitchen cabinet on the 2021 25RB to prevent the slide out's flooring from bunching up against the cabinet when closed. They also changed the cabinet door to solve the issue.

Yes, I will take this flooring over carpet any day!

Just curious......,

Has anybody with a 2021 25RB with this vinyl slide floor problem pressed the issue with their RV dealership...., or an active service warranty claim in the Jayco system??
