What did you have to tell Jayco in order for them to let you do the work your self? Nearest dealer to me is a sh!*#y CW dealer that I had a bad experience with and has bad service reviews, a lot of them. Plus it is 2 hours away...

I emailed Jayco's Customer Service, explained the problem, informed them I had located a replacement tub, gave them the cost, and asked if they would reimburse me. They said the replacement item would no longer be covered by their warranty if I did the work, but they would pay for the tub. My warranty runs out in a little over a year. I trust my workmanship over the dealers and I like having the chance to make my trailer better. I am satisfied with how this was handled. I also got the chance to spend the afternoon in the trailer listening to the Giants beat the Dodgers

Glad to hear that worked out for you. Could have gone south real quick if you ran into other issues/probs tearing that out.

Spray foam any gaps under it for support.

I finished the tub installation today. I put the new tub in on Sunday. After setting the tub I attempted to install the drain fitting and found that the plywood platform interfered with the threads. I suspect the factory attached the drain prior to installing the tub, the interference from the platform probably created the strain that eventually cause the tub to crack. I had to remove the tub to remove enough wood to allow the platform to clear the drain. Luckily I had enough putty to set the tub a second time. Jayco did not use any sealant under the drain flange but i did. I reconnected the rest of the drain and called it a day. I wanted to wait a day and let the silicon caulk cure before checking for leaks. I also did not want to install the tub surround until I was sure the tub would not need to removed again. Today I checked the plumbing for leaks and all looked good so I installed the surround, the faucet, and wood trim. I also flushed the water system and checked all the accessories for proper operation. The last task will be greasing the wheel bearings and we should be good to go for the rest of the season.
