I would be a ass and demand - request a non plugged tire from my dealer. Wouldn't care what trailer they stole it from.

This is my plan when I get the trailer back from the factory, if they haven't replaced it already.

My question to them would be why does a tire that has never been on the road need a plug in it? How can this be a common practice at the factory since the newly made trailers have never been towed yet?

My guess is that the tire repair was done somewhere after it left the manufacture and before the OP took delivery.....just a guess.

If it was repaired correctly from the inside I wouldn't worry about it. If it has one of those cheezy plugs you double up and push through from the outside, that forsure wouldn't work with me.

I'll bet they're Jayco screws in the tires

I think you right on the money. You find screws laying around here and there inside a new trailer, so I suspect screws are laying here and there on the floor where they assembling the trailers.
With the luck I've had with this trailer I'll have more plugged tires on my trailer when I get it back that it did when I dropped it off at the dealer to be picked up for factory repair.

But this is the least of my many concerns about this tailer at this time. With one year of ownership of my 26.5rls coming up the end of July, I have to say it has not been pleasant!

I picked it up today. And I'm DISAPPOINTED? On the cap replacement I had the dealer reseal several areas on the cap to roof seal on the top of the trailer. When I got it home I noticed more areas on the side seams that had little or no silicone sealing the cap to the trim, so I repaired that.
The slide is still crooked in the opening, at this time it goes in and out without jamming. We'll see for how long. I had been through the same issue 4 times with the dealer. Something is out of square, but it doesn't appear diagnostic skills are part of a factory repair.
Since our trailer just went on a 1200 mile road trip and we when without a trailer for 3 weeks I had higher expectations .
The Tire-still needs to be replaced. The factory sent it back as is. I went after the dealer again today to get it replaced. I'm sure it was a waste of time, but its become one additional thorn in my side.

Thats a real bummer. Hopefully everything works out for you. Is the slide sealing out and in?

I posted earlier in the thread about my concerns picking up our new Eagle HT 29.5, but so far everything is good. Couse i could find some nit pick stuff i dont really like....but im not sure any of the other brands coming off an assembly line would be any better.
