I have to agree. The slide-out wall is cut out and follows that unit all through production. The "header is part of the wall when the aluminum frame is welded and could not be built "too small" they are welded on a jig.

Something is not right with the dealer's comments and that problem would have occurred when the slide was retracted after assembly as well as during the PDI. If the unit is in MICH I would definitely take it to the factory in Middlebury.

I had numerus Jamming/stalling issues with the main slide on our trailer. Long story short it went back to the factory last summer. They told me the problems were being caused because slide was way out of adjustment. So far it has been working. Although when I look at the way the seals contact the slide, things don't look square. We just hold I breath every time we extend or retract that slide.

The dealer is working with Jayco on this problem, they are not doing any work that Jayco is not authorizing first. I am going to call Jayco to have a talk with them though.

While it's back at the dealer, make sure you can access the manual slide retraction bolt on the door side slide. On ours it was impossible to get to. There was supposed to be a hole in the frame to access it with a socket. I had to cut the hole myself, which was no big deal. Just glad I found that before I needed to use it sometime out on the road.

I have called Jayco twice since Wed., morning, and still have not received a call back from customer support. The dealer says Jayco can not decide how to remedy the problem as of yet. My wife and I saved up for 4 years to purchase this trailer cash outright and to take a 3 month long trip with our daughter this summer before her senior year in high school, and then off to college. We have had to cancel plans and reservations, and right now my anger and frustrations are about to bubble over! I am so sad, and so is my family right now, 4 years of planning, saving and expectations down the drain!

Feel your pain. I am sure Jayco is trying to figure out a good plan to get it fixed.

Did you ask if a loaner was available? Maybe the dealer would lend a used unit for your trip. They usually offer their used units to employees to use on weekends, at least here they do.

Something smells! How did the factory shove it in for transportation to the dealer? How did dealer shove it in when you picked it up? Somewhere in its life, my 2012 Eagle had loosened the two main bolts that are used for vertical adjustment. That caused the slide not to lift up enough as it closed. Top of slide needs to raise, and touch side of unit about one inch prior to bottom. Another thing, almost all mass produced, low skilled worker items are locked in by a jig system. They are peas in a pod, and the whole run would be off. I would advise to first look for another problem then the header!
