Cracked Rim on Pinnacle

We were getting ready to move to TopSail SP near Destin Florida today and when I moved the 5er off the Lynx Leveling blocks, I heard a POP.

I looked at the wheels and found a cracked rim on the left rear.

Called Dealer and they said they had never heard of cracked rims on Jayco's.

Sent Dealer Pictures and they said they would contact Jayco and let me know.

Has anybody had a cracked rim on their Jayco ???

We have not had any rim problems. Alloy wheels can do that. It was most likely a casting flaw and finally became visible.

Haven't heard of that happening lately Rob. Are you waiting to here back before moving?

Keep us informed of how things turn out.

I haven't had any rim problems, but I did have one brake that was not fully assembled by the manufacturer and it never worked. Jayco referred the problem to Dexter and they paid for my repair 100% with no questions asked.

We went ahead and moved about 150 miles for a long weekend with family in Santa Rosa Beach Florida.
We will head back to our home base in Tallahassee and get the wheel issue resolved before we move again.

Next move will be to Disney's Fort Wilderness for a week after Thanksgiving.

is that a third crack towards the rim lip? Odd that it cracked expecially on such a new TT.

Nope, just the crack in the spoke of the rim
