It could be just settling from the drive for delivery... I am sure your dealer would tighten them up to spec under warranty

Guess I better check my bolts before heading out this spring. Thanks for the heads up.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

I've added the underbelly option. Will these bolts still be visible? Still waiting on delivery. Wireman

No, they will not be visible.

We are talking about the bolts holding the exterior walls to the outriggers. These are outside the frame of the trailer. the enclosed underbelly is contained between the frame. The bolts are easy to see and access.

I saw a video on You Tube where they showed how Jayco makes their travel trailers and 5th wheels. I wish I hadn't seen it 'cause the guy in it said that it takes 7 hours to make a trailer and you could see everyone rushing and running around to meet their quotas. It was a bash on Jayco so I'm not sure if anything was fabricated but it would explain why your bolts/screws weren't tightened. I'm just now ordering my Jayco and plan on going through it with a fine toothed comb before signing for it. I really like the model we picked out for the Murphy bed and the only other company making trailers with them was Rockwood and I did not like their quality compared to Jayco. Hey, every company has quotas, you just have to make sure your item is up to your own standards.

Just checked my bolts tonite. As Trunce said LOOSE.
Out of 16 bolts, 3 were easyily hand tightened and the rest all needed several turns to tighten up. Hope that was just 2 years of travel and not poor quality control by Jayco.
Happy RVing,
Jeff
