Grumpy Thanks it worked. Never thought to try nor did the person helping in the tool dept at Lowe's/Auto Zone offer that suggestion.

Norty1 was there too so I can't take all the credit.

Norty Thank you also.....Went under but could not really see to well that can only pull down a little due to all the spray foam in the corners. The other rear opening was only for slideout Motor. Also just doing some general maintanance lubing the slides and I noticed crack under front living passenger slide.

I also called my dealer Orlando RV but no luck with them giving advise where the sensor is, but they can get me in 3rd week of Jan. 16. Lets see how long it takes Jayco to call me back.

Regards,

ER

Drill a very tiny hole at the end of the crack before it gets worse. Usually that will relieve the stress and minimize the damage. It will continue to grow if you don't. Ask the dealer what they think also.

Problem is that's a Factory Service Center repair.

That is sad to see and a con against fiberglass. 13 months. Granted, it is at a stress point but that is worrisome.

I too had the same crack on the passenger front slide, dropped it off at the dealer Sept. 8th and got it back Nov 14th, all work was covered by warranty.
Dealer said they had to remove the slide to repair it..

Sorry, don't know what I was thinking, Torx is 6pt not 8pt. Your screw is a double square. Odd that they would use that, but you figured out that a red Robertson would work anyway.

Seeing that crack means I'll be checking my trailer in the morning when it's light out.

Hi All:

For all who posted replies Thank You.

Sorry for not posting had a business trip to NYC. I did get a call from Jayco telling me where to look for the sensor and if I could not fix it for me to call a Mobile RV Repair and they would pay Mobile service or reimburse me for any out of pocket cost which I thought was great to hear.

After calling My dealer again to explain still could not squeeze me in they said only third week of Jan. that they are backed up.

Only Today I had a chance and pulled a big portion of the underbelly down and could not find the sensor, Jayco Tech said 2 to 3 feet after the frame drop. Called them back and waiting for a return call. Also will see what they say about the crack that I forgot to mention it in my last call.

Regards,

ER

Hi:

Today spoke with another Jayco Tech. First Tech gave me wrong area to look at. Second tech info was it was mounted center behind the wheels. There is an opening by the spare tire. After lowering the spare and taking down the panel there it was.

Now after speaking with LCI trying to find out if that is the problem.

Will post again once I get details.

Also they will advise on the crack.

Regards,

ER
