Angry 2015 x23b defects

Just got back from our first major trip with the new trailer.

CO detector doesn't work. Manual says the beeping indicates the unit is "expired" Supposed to last 7 years not seven weeks
Water pump cycles on and off when water is used and comes on intermittently when no water is running. Checked all over for dripping taps and leaks couldn't fine any. Anyone got any suggestions to fix this?
When looking at pump it isn't even installed level and the little screw to adjust the shut off pressure is behind the pump. The only way you can access it is with a bent screwdriver.

The finish on some of the cabinets can actually be rubbed off with your finger.

The edging on the table wasn't put on properly. It is too short and isn't inserted in the groove.

The latch on the exterior door, to hold attach the screen door to it, is installed crooked.

I will be taking it to the dealer at the end of camping season to fix, but just a little pi...d off. What the heck does PDI mean to Jayco?
Thanks for listening

That's what warranty is for. Too bad yours had all those problems, but some do. None of them seem major, just major PIAs. Let the dealer fix it up, and next trip you'll probably have no problems.

As far as the pump cycling with the water turned off, take a look at the pipes and fittings around the water heater. I had a slow leak at one the fitting on the water heater that made my pump cycle.

As for the water pump cycling. There are a number of spots to check. Check the thumb fittings at each fitting, they do loosen up while traveling. Check the filter screen right before pump. Mine was fractured and leaked slowly. Check the outside shower valves are closed, Czech the low point drains, open and close them a few times. There might be some construction debris trapped in the valve, causing it to leak.

I've heard you never want to adjust the pump settings. As for the pump not being level it does not care, it will still pump.

Sorry for all your problems, if you get these little things corrected you should be good to go. Mine is 5 years old now and needs nothing to be fixed or adjusted. I can't tell tell you how happy I am owning a Jayco product.

Anyone expecting perfection when they consider buying an RV, might as well turn around and go find another hobby. We've owned 8, and they all needed some attention. Some way more than others. So always approach expecting the worse, and being surprised when it all works. Anything broke gives me the opportunity to make it better, so I like the challenge every now and then. I'm on my second fridge in less than a year, and it's bad now. So, no problem. Ditching it, putting a residential in and it'll be better than original.

Take the issues you have, learn from them, and improve it. You will never find an RV that doesn't need something done to it. I understand your frustrations, but compare your issues to somebody with a cracked frame, delamination etc. Yours are minor and easily fixed.

OP admits he was simply "venting". We can expect that.


At least the dog was not kicked, right?

Re: water pump cycling:

Please see the following post...

https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f2...tml#post302958

Likely, your low point drains are the culprit as one or both are not sealing closed. Locate them and test whether they click when the close. If not, perform the maintenance in the link above.

I've purchased 3 Jaycos new. All 3 had annoying little finish issues that I took care of myself rather than leave it sitting at the dealer for 3 weeks during camping season.

It was things like misaligned screen doors, the bathroom door in our X20E that didn't stary latched, a piece of plastci molding around the bathroom was flapping in the wind, stuff like that.

Other than that our Jaycos have been very solidly build trailers that have given us many years of service and have held up well.

And why shouldn't we expect perfection?? I can understand component problems But poor workmanship should not be accepted Either by Jayco, the Dealer or the customer. From reading this forum it appears that far too many units leave the factory with defects in workmanship. And it appears Jayco expects the dealer to correct these defects.

Things happen with anything built that is complex. How many issues do brand new stick built houses have during the first year? And they don't even have to go banging around down the road.

RVs are going to have issues. Just like a new home. It is what it is.
