Stuck in service

I share this merely as a way to vent a bit.

I brought my rig into the dealer over 6 weeks ago for some warranty work. End of season stuff, nothing serious and nothing that would keep us from camping if it were in season. One of the issues I have is a stress fracture of the shower pan - its got a hairline crack in it. I figured no big deal, pull the pan, check the support underneath the pan, and replace the pan.

Ugh - going on week 7 and I'm still hung up. Its not the dealer's fault, I've been told Jayco is having a hard time getting the rivets that are needed to re-install the shower pan. Everything else on my list has been completed as of 5 weeks ago.

Good thing I'm not camping anytime soon, but jeez. I pay for covered storage so my rig doesn't get all sloppy, and its been stuck in the dealer's lot doing just that. *grumble grumble grumble*

Haha. I feel your pain! I dropped off our rig the first week of October 2015.

As of February 22, 2016 the dealer is still waiting on a part from Jayco.

Thankfully Upstate NY is not conducive to camping this time of year.

I just picked up my Greyhawk from Indiana. It had collision repairs done by an auto body shop that was recommended by the Jayco Service manager. I also had warranty work done by Jayco while it was there. The auto body shop - S&S Auto Body in Wakarusa did a great job on my MH. They go to Jayco on an almost daily basis and said that getting parts is a real problem. Apparently, production is in full swing and doesn't want to give up parts. I had the passenger side wall replaced and all the cargo doors as well as entry door, too. I had a transporter drive the MH to Indiana arranged by S&S and just took it home yesterday. There are many RV's leaving Indiana. My DW joked that she didn't know so many people winter camped. The motel we stayed at was loaded with transporters waiting to pick up RV's. Jayco fixed my 60 mph transmission vibration and the Greyhawk drove like a dream during the 750 mile ride home.

Which rivets for the shower pan are you referring to? Surely not the ones that they sometimes use to secure the wall surround. Those are at lowes, in both white and the almond color. A really good dealer will think outside of the box and use something possibly better. Not too much in an RV that you can't substitute with something better. I hate yall are experiencing this. Stories like this is the reason I do all of my own work, warranty or not. Being I have a very good dealer, I've had them ship me the parts under warranty where I can fix it myself. They get to claim the time, I get to fix it my way. Saves me the fuel money and loss of time. When you full time, you learn to fix things.

Exactly my thought, tied up weeks for rivets? Ace/Lowes/Home depot, local lumber yard.

Woohoo I don't feel so bad now. Mine has been at the dealer since the Sunday after Thanksgiving, it's only been 13 weeks. Front and rear slides were replaced as well as a long laundry list of other items that needed fixin! :-)

Mwade, sounds like you need a different dealer. Of course I don't know your specific situation, but dang. Longest I ever had one at a dealer was a week, and that was for a front cap replacement and paint, rotted slide floor replacement and a bunch of other stuff. Different rig than present. I made sure all parts were in stock before bringing it though.
