2012 314 BDS Question

Hello all! Just picked up the new Eagle 314 BDS last night. Is this rear drivers side platic fender suppose to be sticking out like this or should it be tucked in? Also the shower wall does not seem to have any caulking along the very top of the wall, is this typical?

That looks like it's sticking way out to me and I doubt that's right.

That looks like it's sticking out too far. I would think caulk should be applied anywhere water can enter, including the top of the shower stall.

I think it may be tough to make a smooth fender transition because of the slide location at the wheel well, but I would "hope" it could be better than what your photo reflects. I would check some other units and see what they look like.

Mine looks similar to that when standing close up. From a distance though, it lines up pretty well. Stand back a few feet and see what it looks like... if it bothers you, take it in and have them adjust it.

As far as the shower, Is there caulk on the bottom where the wall meets the tub? On my G3 32BHDS, the part of the shower wall you see is a type of false wall for decoration, and behind that is the actual water barrier. I talked with Jayco about mine because the wall wasn't exactly flush and there was no caulk at the bottom, and they said that there was no caulk at the bottom because they wanted any water that did get behind that first wall to drain back into the tub.

Thanks all! I will look at some others while camping to see how that flair looks. NO there is no caulk on the bottom either, must be for the same reason!
