jayco and Owasco rv QC slipping

well i'm glad to see i'm not the only one with jayco problem. the QC there must be slipping. And you have to watch the dealer Owasco rv. we picked up our 2012 swift trailer after the pdi. only to find out that they never hooked up the one burner on the stove. after a couple of tries it lite but the bottom of the stove was on fire. the ac blew more hot air in the trailer then cold. Paid for window eching never done. velcro on the wall to hold cushions was out by a inch or not there. trim around fridge needed to be replaced. found out the awning fabric was not square. after they replaced the fabric and replaced the wood trim around fridge, took trailer out camping, no propane to stove, fridge or furnace. you would think it would have been tested before i picked it up.

I had to pay 185 dollars for a gas inspection when buying our Jayco.
The bed was a cheap foam mattress which we had to upgrade at time of sale. 500 dollars for for what was suppose to be a great bed but turned out to be a torture devise. We wake up with a sore back every morning.
I'm taking our trailer in for warranty work next week.

Our awning is hard to adjust and there are several cosmetic changes that need to be made. Over all we have had way fewer issues than our previous Wilderness trailer. I love the way the trailer tows. It is easy to park compared to the previous trailer that was 10 feet shorter. All the appliances have worked as expected and some even better. Yes I would buy another Jayco at this point in time.

how much worse can it get. not doing a pdi and leaving a stove not hooked up. but giving you a full tank of propane and telling you. your all set to go camping.

I know exactly what Seann means with that statement. We have had better and didn't really appreciate it. We have had a LOT worse with our last trailer. I am not complaining much about the one we have now.

I would agree with you, but I also think the dealer should do a full quality inspection when it comes in. For instance, stove could have been working fine at the factory and bounced loose for whatever reason.

Just my opinion - but a really good dealer will do a good quality check and not let a customer leave until he is happy.

My dealer was a great guy - and he said - "look, I want you happy. You got a small trailer and I hope you come see me when you trade UP". He is smart!

Update We picked the trailer back up after the dealer corrected most of the issues on our long list. The service tech that made the repairs was the same tech that prepped our first unit that we were so happy with. On our second outing, all looked and functioned well until it was time to head home. While at the dump station I noticed parts hanging out from the backside of one of the brake drums. It appears the springs and cables are no longer connected to the brake shoes. Luckily we were only 10 miles from home and made the call to tow her in. The dealer is sending a tech to my house to evaluate the damage and towablity.

I do believe the dealer and techs can make the whole experience better if they are more through in their initial prep.
