Unfinished business - front cap

Was exploring and climbing around today when I came across this interesting discovery.... See attached.

Why wouldn't they have some sort of capping/ seal / enclosure etc so you aren't looking at raw insulation and cut wood in a $250k RV???

Is this standard? Anyone have the same? Anyone have different??? Should there be something there?

Thanks in advance for any insights.

I was checking that area out on Friday and it was the same as you. I was completely disappointed but after everything else wasn’t surprised. I plan on adding some more insulation prior to weather getting warm. Not sure how to make it more finished looking. I guess they don’t expect anyone to look there.

I'm not sure what spot on your Seneca this is at? Our 2015 does not seem to have this at all. Can you show a picture from farther away to give some clarity?

No way open seams are normal construction.

Itís the bunk area with the new automotive windshield. There is a powered shade that I guess they donít want to get snagged on insulation. However there is plenty of room to add more. Not sure how it could be finished off tho.

Our 37M has the same issue.

And the windshield or cap is improperly sealed and has water damage from the factory. We discovered water marks and the pad was wet after the first rain.

Our local Jayco dealer can't see us for a month to even look at it.

I am extremely disappointed in Jayco. Our warranty punch list is ridiculous for a coach with a $312k MSRP.

Its the window in the top bunk (bump out) above the driver cabin.

Very disappointed in the craftsmanship on this for sure.

I am thinking I will add some additional insulation and see about some weatherstripping (without interfering with the electric shade)

Interesting for sure!

Can you zoom out or give a better idea of where you are seeing this? I can't tell from the picture and want to check on my 2022 37M. I have a list of 11 major issues with mine.

It is the gap between the upper bunk front window and the inner trim panel where the shade runs. The gap is unfinished.
