That's not good, air flow, into the trailer, seems to be compromised. Are you still under warranty? Have you taken it to the dealer for repairs yet?

That is totally unacceptable. My new White Hawk had some problems that I had to fix, but nothing as ridiculous as those. I used 2 tubes of clear silicone all around the glass panels of the shower because water seeps through the crappy seal and other places in the shower. I also had to fix the misalignment of the furnace return air grill by adding some framing and drilling new screw holes. The oven pilot won't stay lit, so I'll have the dealer fix that next spring. I had to relocate some latches that weren't aligned properly. The stuff that I had wrong was a pain, but not nearly as bad as what you have. At least all my furnace ducts are properly installed and go to all areas.

Note to everyone. Check the air conditioner mounting bolt tightness. I've never gotten an RV where they were properly tightened. This trailer was actually the closest to correct. The bolts on a previous Jayco were so loose that water dripped on the dining table.

striper44, that is astonishing even for a hurry-up assembly line built trailer. I encourage you to send those pictures to Jayco. I know you have fixed it already, but somebody at Jayco needs to know what a worker and Jayco's "quality" control measures did to your trailer. And it would be helpful if somebody at Jayco was embarrassed.

Seems manufactures want to brush off to much to their customers. Corporation leaning towards fast production and profits for the shareholders. Till things go wrong and face a massive lawsuit. If production workers don't have proper time to finish their job that's what you get with pictures above. Even if you have warranty you still loose. It cost money to go to the dealer and the time you spend on a warranty claim. It seems all what people buy nowadays is a finished RV shell what has to be completed by the buyer (if capable to do so).


When I bought my trailer it also had flattened flex ductwork and the furnace was not even connected proper to the outside combustion air. I spend many days cleaning all cavities and bring all other things up to proper standards. Yes there are building standards for RV manufacturing but do they ever apply all of them? And is there control? Yes it is a shame on the manufacturers. Is it all about filling their pockets. It is not up to dealers and buyers to complete their unit. Then a lot of dealers have the same attitude, they want your money not your complains and warranty work. A small percentage RV owners have good dealers looking after them if they have problems. It is sad to say how corruption has taken over. I guess we all deal with this problem even at vehicle dealers. My 2c

Unfortunately, this is just the way the industry is. Like it or leave it. No, I don't like it. We've dealt with it more over the last 3 than out of the 8 we've owned. Kind of shows where the trend is going. 1 being a Tiffin well north of $100k, 1 Forest River Forester MH, and a Cedar Creek. All having issues, some really bad. So, not that I like it, but, you either buy one and fix it to your liking, or get out of the hobby. Always buy expecting the worst, and hoping for the best. Unless everybody stopped purchasing, you'll never even put a dent in a corporation as big as some of these. Like the big "Gas Out" thing. Never works.

I bought a Jayco this time, because I don't feel as bad when I have issues with a unit I spent a little over $20k on, compared to over $100k. Price definitely doesn't change the amount of issues.

I sent the pictures and called they offered to pay for all the parts. I told them they should fire the guy on the line that installs the furnace . And as for fast production if you go to you tube there is a clip of how fast they assemble these trailers i wish i had seen before i purchase our trailer i would have thought about this this purchase. And i watch a clip on lance trailers they seem like they take there time not a rush type of environment.i really like this trailer but i am wondering whats to come i know you are going have problems but this is to much
