No, you're not missing anything, but Jayco along with many other RV manufacturers source and install the same components from second party suppliers and have no control over their products. They are responsible for their own warranty, or lack of it. The propane regulator recalls affected tens of thousands of RVs on many brands. Similar to the Takata airbag debacle in cars and trucks.
I agree that owners that have stationary campers should have the ability to replace their own regulators, but that comes down to a legality thing because of the potential to improperly install one and have a fire or worse. I'm sure it was insisted upon from their legal department to keep lawsuits from dropping up. I'm not defending anyone, or their decisions, just throwing out some facts.
