We lost an entire leg of power our first time using it because the slide crushed on of the main power supply wires. Horrible wiring

We had a bad valve in our 377rlbh and they changed the whole control panel! Glad I didn't have to do it. I did have to repair a couple of leaks afterwards but that's pretty normal. It seems like there is always something loose or misplaced after a dealer works on it.

Just a photo of my wiring in a '18 Hummingbird 17FD to show you that you are not alone. The hole in the floor to feed wiring amazes me. The gray is the plastic cover they added over the insulation in the floor

My Eagle has a "Room of Doom" that looks just about what like everyone has shown here. To the eyes of this 50 year broadcast engineer, this is just disgusting! There's no excuse for this. This is what I paid for?

Speaking of wires under the frame hanging down, in my case UNDER the axles... In my Eagle, the wires almost getting caught in the wheels were only MY BRAKE WIRES!!! Nothing unsafe about that!!! Took me about 3 hours to patch up all the damage. And yes, I do have pictures. They could have cost me, my family, or someone else's lives. Careless jerks. What do they care.?.

I've spent something like 30 hour re-crimping nearly every electrical connection in my new (last year) Eagle. I should send them a bill.

The disgracefully bad assembly practices of Jayco is why my next RV will NOT be a Jayco. And we were mighty close to going for a new Seneca next year. I hope you see this Jayco! Your crap workmanship just cost you $280,000, and I'm sure I'm not alone. At least you didn't cost us our lives!

Ya’all might want to check the “set” screw on the outside that holds the motor in place. Search Youtube for replacing Schwintek motor for video howtos. Jayco didn’t put one of them in right so it came loose and broke off. So the motor wouldn’t turn the gear at all. We made it home ok and I had a great mobile tech come who found and fixed the problem. I’ll take that over the warranty circus everytime. $100 and a schwintek tutorial and I watched him work! It’s a No Brainer in my book!

I removed all the set screws in the motors. If the motor fails and the slide out is closed it takes 3 men and a boy (if your lucky) to push the slide open to get to the set screw out. As I said I took the set screws out and filled the holes with silicone. I then cut a 1/2 inch of PVC pipe about an 1 inch long ( I forget actual length ) and glided it to the top of the motor. The motor can’t go anywhere. I can how ever pry the PVC pipe off the motor and lift the motor to remove it. I can and have changed the motor, repaired wires without opening the slide all from inside the motor home.

In my last comment I said I guided the PVC pipe on top of the motor.
I meant to say glue the pipe to the top of the motor.
The motor sits on three set screws and the motor shaft slides down on the drive gear. The pipe can be wedged so the motor can’t hop off the set screws.
