All are legitimate concerns as far as I am concerned, however, I am guessing that the people who built the unit had no clue it would be sold to a former sales rep. NOT saying that has anything to do with anything, but I know as a mechanic, when I go to purchase a vehicle, I nit pick a bit more than the average joe.

You shoulda been there with the earful the dealer got from me over my (now ex-)wife's brand new Honda CR-V! Never liked that car. All 175,000 miles and 12 years of it.

Why don't you take it to a dealer local to where you are? It's all warranty work anyway.
Call Jayco and tell them you will expensing a hotel too!

The only question I have is, being a former salesmen of Jayco why did you except a trailer in such bad condition? When we bought our last trailer it took the dealer three times to get it right. First trailer had issues I would not accept, secound one had a few things he had to fix before we signed the dotted line.

I was told of jayco build quality prior to buying a new 3914 seismic . Took delivery Nov. 2014 . Sad to say I was mislead . Numerous lack of quality issues related to original construction . There must be no quality control to catch issues at point of build . They must be having labor issues , that would explain the lack of quality iI see in the build of my coach . No worker with any pride would put out such sloppy work . Then there is outside vendor components . Six point leveling , fuel tank and dispencing system , slide issues , main electrical switch box , and more . Now aapproaching end of 2 year warranty . If they would give my money backI i would take it in a heartbeat . I have zero confidence in this coach , that had a msrp of over 100,000 . Now am looking to get out from underneath this poorly built coach , it will literally cost me tens of thousands of dollars . Thanks jayco.

The 'lemon law' for states that have them applies to motor vehicles, not towable RV's. Even if OP's rig was a motorhome, the lemon law would only apply to the vehicle chassis and powertrain, not what was built on it. Seen this discussed on other forums, got curious and researched and found what I write to be the case. And that is a shame, because it sounds like the OP certainly has a lemon..............

Not that easy. The worker will have to be replaced. A fresh hire must be trained - Zero or worse productivity for the first few weeks. Plus management time lost sifting through the candidates... Throw in the hit on the company's unemployment insurance record.

Usually, it is much more effective to keep the people you have.

It's just a matter of keeping them focused on what The Company needs rather than what is going on in the worker's own head at the moment. That is what line managers and QC staff are for!

If The Company is really well run, the co-workers on the line will be poking one another to fix the problem when they see a foul-up.

But, this is The U.S. of A. Most line workers just want to do the least possible to get paid. Any screwing over of Management is bonus.

I wouldn't rule out a towable, I would consult an attorney for the State in question.

I ran across the following statement:

"The federal RV Lemon Law was designed to protect your rights when your new RV turns sour and the manufacturer's dealer is unable to fix it within reasonable number of attempts or a reasonable amount of time. This law applies to motorized RV's including Class A, Class B and Class C motorhomes as well as towable RV's which include Travel Trailers, Toy Haulers, Fifth-Wheel Trailers and Truck Campers."
