More warranty issues

Tomorrow we are taking our 330RLTS in for more warranty work.
1. Loose trim pieces by the door.
2. Secreen door still won't latch.
3. Tape on all three slides is wrinkled.
4. Bathroom sink drips unless you shut the faucets off really hard.
5. Bad piece of wood on curb side cabinet.
6. Cushions on sofa are sagged baddly.
7. Kitchen sink water drips onto the shelf below at times.
8. The range is not even close to being level. It is tilted toward the wall.
9. The cabinet next to the microwave is not even close to being square.
10. The slide that holds the range and refrigerator has dime size bubbles in the fiberglass. At first we thought it was the decals but it is not.
11. The slidding door is now off the track.

This dealer is about 100 miles away from our home and we hope things get fixed the first time.

Well the bright side is that the slides are all working properly and the brakes are all working now.

All this is making our old Montana look better every day.

Mostly...mostly minor issues and hopefully the dealer is a good one.

Dropped our Pinnacle off at our local dealer for a water heater problem, doesn't work on electric and only warm water on propane and a fix to the screen door that one of our dogs pretty much trashed, and saw a new full body paint Redwood (supposedly a high line unit) that someone just picked up in Colorado with all kinds of issues.

Happens...to us too...just don't get discouraged as it will be fixed and better for down the road.

Good Luck

Larry, It is intresting that you had the same water heater problem we had, ours stopped working on electric in the first few weeks of use, only worked on propane. Dealer said it was a bad thermostat on the electric operation. They replaced the thermostat, we have not had any problems since. (Except for when we are moving locations and I forget to turn the water heater switch on!)

We had our fair share too with our 32TSBH. I feel sorry for you guys especially since you've got Eagles or better. Sadly enough, all these quality issues are going to catch up with Jayco and the rest of the RV industry. It's only a matter of time. People won't want to deal with this crap.

That is a coincidence Rob...probably the same thermostat problem and easy fix.

I am not sure if we will or not.

Our Montana had lots of problems but most were things like AC, furnace, refrigerator and were not really Montana issues. The crappy Lippert frame and slides were Montana issues because they chose to use them.

With this Jayco it has been slides out of adjustment, door wouldn't stay shut, brakes full of grease, crooked cabinets, loose trim, sagging couch cushion, slide tape on all three slides, dripping faucets, leaking kitchen sink line, small bubbles in the fiberglass. All these are Jayco problems. I think the Amish craftsman must have been cross eyed and lost his level when he made the cabinets. On the plus side it is the best floor plan we could find in a travel trailer. It really fits our needs.

This is our 5th trip to a dealership and I really hope it will be the last. It really makes one think about an extended warranty.

We also like the floor plan lots of room (we live in it 5-6 months a year). It's just poor workmanship. I don't think they can read a tape measure or a level. Did Jayco quit making the 330rlts after 2 years for a reason? We sold a Carriage 5th wheel to get this trailer.
