Mold / Mildew

Has anyone had any issues with mold / musty area in their overhead bunk area in your Grey Hawk? We have it in our 2015 and can't figure out where moisture might be coming from. Very frustrating. Waiting to see what Jayco is going to do about it.

We have not seen any sign of moisture in the overhead bunk in ours. It is definitely not something you'd want to ignore. Good luck with it.

Not to scare you, but mold will make you sick! It has to be taken care of immediately. Please do research on the subject.

Where's your water heater? If it's under the bunk area you might check for leaks. Last year I noticed moisture on the walls in the back corner of the bunk area and found that there had been a long term, slow leak at one of the water heater fittings. Water heater in my TT is directly under the bunks.

Clearance lights are a common leak point. Hopefully your dealer will come through for you.

Just returned from dropping it off at the Jayco Factory Service Center. We found where there seems to have been water intrusion through the poorly sealed molding where the overhead bunk meets the front nose area. They will be taking it apart to investigate the amount of damage before repairing. Also addressing a list of other issues. We were treated very well. Took in the factory tour where they were actually building the Redhawks. Very interesting. Was nice to visit the area of Elkhart and Lagrange County, Indiana. Will pick up our Greyhawk on our way South to Florida in early December (Jayco is storing our tow dolly for us while working on the rig).

We've been to the factory 3 times (with two different rigs), and the treatment was way beyond good! The folks there are wonderful, and I often wonder why anyone would buy a unit with just a one year warranty.

JulieMike, did you get to go to the RV museum in Elkhart? That alone is worth the trip! On the downside, we left a bunch of money at the giant flea market in Shipsawana. And those Amish restaurants... Yummm

Yes, we were treated very well. We did not get to take in the flea market in Shipshewana as it is closed at this time of year. Also did not go to the museum. Did do some shopping there though. Very unique part of the country. We enjoyed it.
