I guess I知 really asking is it very common to have leaks? And how reliable are these tt?
Thanks for any replies.
Raven - while I don't own a TT, the rules are still the same. It's just basic maintenance. your rig is only about 2 years old. Jayco warranty is 2 years from the factory. We got our 2018 5th wheel brand new from the dealer during the summer of 2017. Not sure how - Jayco has a time machine?
I've been on my roof a couple times. Once to clean it up, the other to kibitz with the AC units (inline mod). As long as you're keeping tabs on it now and then you should be fine. It helps if you can park it under covered shelter to protect it from the elements. DO NOT EVER NEVER EVER USE A TARP. This will only trap moisture and promote mold. Bleh!
