Our goes to the dealer tomorrow to replace the fan. Jayco would replace it but I wanted to upgrade to a fantastic fan and a maxi cover. Dealer said Jayco will cover the labor thats it.

This is what I received from my dealer.

I did call Jayco in regards to the vent. You had mentioned about putting in a Max Air vent. I spoke to the technician and Jayco, the vent is working as designed. If the vent is left open when it is raining out, water will splash into the vent causing water to get in, as other vents would too.
If you still would like a Max Air vent installed, that would be something Jayco will not cover, as there is no defect with the current vent.


My Response was this.
OK, so that is a pretty bad design when you cant even install a vent cover to prevent water leaking into it. I will have to install a vent myself. The other vent in the bedroom is designed to allow for a vent cover, where this one is not, so I am pretty much forced into replacing this myself. Maybe you can call jayco and explain that to them, and maybe they will absorb the labor of a maxxair and I can pay the cost of the vent

I ordered the maxxair 7500 for a replacement. I'll replace myself for piece of mind.

Bathroom vent

Looking for advice on a leak I've discovered on my 2016 eagle 345bhts. I found water on the floor directly under the antenna crank. Naturally I figured it was the o-ring on the antenna worm gear. I went on the roof inspected all sealant and antenna bracket. Everything looks intact. I replaced worm gear hoping that was the problem. The next day the leak is still there. Upon re inspection I noticed my bathroom power vent lid is cracked just like discribed in these posts. My question is could that be causing my leak in the hallway at the antenna crank. There is no water at the vent in the bathroom. Could it be traveling in the ceiling and coming out at the crank handle? I'm trying to get it in to the dealer but of course it's been raining everyday so I'm joe st trying to stop the leak until the dealer can repair. Thanks for any advice.

We had the same problem after sealing around the antenna twice. Somehow water kept getting down through it. Finally pulled it off completely and replaced it with the King Jack antenna which fits flush with the floor and does not crank up and down. That was over a year ago with no leaks since.

You could easily pull the trim ring of the vent (inside the camper) off and feel around to see if there is any wetness.

I had mine replaced this fall with a fantastic fan 2250. My factory fan fell apart / to the touch due to UV and was leaking on the floor. Jayco paid the labor and the difference in cost of the two fans. No problems at all with Jayco covering it. General Trailer did the repair and did a great job. I didn't buy the unit there but they did honor the warranty. The folks at the General RV in White Lake Twp, MI are great.

Spend the extra money and upgrade. The factory fan is garbage. They did send a replacement to my dealer but it was the exact same fan (didn't trust it). For as much as we pay for these units why did Jayco skimp out on such a cheap fan!!!
