Sorry to here about a slide problem right off the bat. After 2 years I still cross my fingers every time I move it in or out.

Haven't really used our 2015 28BHBE yet since delivery was almost Nov 2014 BUT what I have noticed was that both of the dinette seats gave way sitting on them on the slide. Now that you mention the twist I will have to keep and eye out for this. I have also read on here that there is problems with Jayco over tightening the screws for the dinette stanchions. Ultimately the screw tips protruding throough the floor of the slide and slice the linoleum flooring when you retracting and extend your slide. .... low and behold I not only found the plastic dinette base cracked but 2 screws protruding through the floor as well. Im waiting to hear from dealer as to when this work will be completed. I'll keep you posted....

This has me concerned. I have a 2015 28 BHBE I'll be keeping an eye on these issues myself. I did notice when I retract the slide it raises off the floor about four inches on the side where the tv is. Anyone else seeing this?

Sounds like yours is basically doing the same thing as mine but at the other end, I just picked mine up from the dealer last Friday and all they did was run a screw through the bench seat paneling where the factory staple had already ripped through and advised me to not reinstall the screw back into the floor the next time it rips out, they also told me there was nothing they could do about the twist because my slide out isn't square,then they advised me to never sit in the seats while the slide is retracted because of this twist, meanwhile we had to make our first payment. The wife and I have decided to try not to dwell on it and just get on with camping and hope it holds together, I guess when all is said and done we have just learned what to look for when shopping for our next trailer down the road.

[QUOTE=S.Chandler;272748]they advised me to never sit in the seats while the slide is retracted because of this twist,

Check my picture on page #1 and it shows that board placed under the slde-out when it's in. If you wedge a piece of wood under the edge to support it you can sit on it and sleep on it with no problem. This is not Jayco it's all of them. This is why Airstream does NOT have a slide out, this is a very complex setup that drives them all crazy. I was very lucky in that my salesman told me what to do.

I'll have to look at this carefully when we take delivery of our 28BHBE. I can't believe they are saying your slide is not square though. That doesn't sound right and I think I'd be having a fit over that one.

Hey Tunce the traveler, I think I see what you are saying, I have been so focused on the rear of my slide out busting my bench seat that I failed to notice that the front of my slide by the couch is also lifting, I will try putting the board under my bench seat towards the center of the slide to add support, I don't think I will add the 3 or 4 inches that the ends are lifting but a inch or so like you are doing.
Thanks again

I have noticed that when I retract my slide it lifted about 3-4" coming in it then leveled off. If I understand correctly you're saying to put the board in the center so you can still utilized the dinette?

Two Year Warranty

We all don't mind customizing some stuff. When it comes to the structure and structural integrity, you paid too mucm to have to rebuild and if you do screw it up you own it. Your dealer if they are reparable should repair/correct the situation, its no skin off Jayco, they build the TT in a day-in-a-half. My back window leaked, ruined/bubbled the wall - the whole back end was replaced under warranty.

Sorry for the late post.
Yes, I place the board directly in line with the dinette back for support and we use it that way on short stops and weekly during the winter when it's at home and I watch TV out there.
