I read somewhere the later 2016's and 2017's are fixed. You should have no vibration issues. Good luck with your purchase! Other then the vibration issue, I sure like mine.

abarkl, thanks for the vote of confidence and the offer, but I am to old to be messing with suspension and drivetrain work. If I were 10 or 20 years younger I wouldn't hesitate. But I am leaving the labor up to the Ford boys, but Jayco will be reimburse me for the cost.

Want to open up this post since all Ford chassis featuring the 6-speed tranmission (2015+ model year) may be suspect to this problem. We took delivery of a 2018 with a 2017 Ford Chassis build date. Heard audible vibration at 18mph and again at 62mph. We thought that this was fixed after the 2016s but after taking it back and forth to local dealer and Ford Truck repair garage without a diagnosis, we contacted Jayco directly. Yes still a problem on a small number of new builds.

They scheduled a 1-2 hour repair from their facility in Middlebury and got fixed. Learned a lot about the problem from Ford and what all RV manufacturers are doing to remedy the issue. If you want to know more... continue with thread.

Vibration

Just came across this and know I am not nuts!! Took this to dealer and they denied hearing it at 62-64 moh. Not real noticable to driver, but certainly discoverable by DH. Will pursue this further!

I would contact Jayco as others have to get the problem fixed. Your dealer isn't interested since this is a repair they can't do, sounds like it has to be done by Ford.

So to those that went thry Jayco and Ford and had the rebalancing done, did that fix the problem noise heard in the 60 mph range?

Jack could you tell us more about what you know or we're told about the problem ? Mines a 2017 and does it just very slightly at 60 mph only. It's just a small resonance, but I cruise at 58 mph usually not an issue, but I want it to be right if I can get my hands on that kit.

Yes if done properly the audible noises should be eliminated. Ours was fixed though the vibration noise at 18 mph was worse than that at 62 mph
