I wander if the bolt loosen because the wood compresses over time. Just thinking out loud. I will be sure to check mine in the spring.

So I checked mine last night...we have 2016 264BHW...sure enough they were loose. This bothered me a bit and I called Jayco this morning. Talked to a very helpful gentlemen who used to work on the assembly line. He said they were NOT suppose to be loose and these do in fact bolt a floor plate to the exterior outriggers with a carriage type bolt. The interior (which mine are covered with underbelly garment) are self tapping so they would be fine. He was appreciative this was brought to their attention. He did mention they had changed their assembly lines duties and their must have been some miscommunication on who was responsible to tighten them. I told him there were several cases out there online on the forums of these loose nuts and lock washers. He did take my VIN # so it's at least on file with Jayco directly. I would suggest everyone call and let them know. I am already taking mine in to dealer on Saturday for hot water DSI Fault Light issue so he said bring it to their attention and tell them to fasten them down. There is no specific torque on them, just good and snug to flatten lock washer. I'll let my dealer do it under warranty.

I have a 2013 Dsrl with a covered belly and I don't see said bolts. I see some self tapping ones here and there and bolts for the steps and such... any pictures or a better location ideas?

Crawled back down under the trailer and found the bolts and all could be tightened some. Wouldn't say they were really loose, but they needed tightening. So thanks again for the heads up!

Sounds like your unit was okay and that's good news. Mine was obviously not snug at all as the pics show. It is frustrating as a customer that we pay good money for these units and something like this just makes you wonder what else was overlooked during the build process. I will give Jayco credit that they do offer a 2 year warranty and with oversight like this that is some comfort.

Count me in... Or rather LOOSE!!

I ran into one that was falling-off loose when working on pulling a new 12 volt line from the battery into the forward pass through. 2016 trailer with about 9 miles on it (bringing it home).
Noted to self to tighten them all up. Not impressed with QC; but "bitchin 'bout it ain't fixin it" so they say and I'm not too impressed thus far with local Dealer.
Also, there's now a staple or nail working its way up in the middle of linoleum between the booth and the fridge... feels like badly joined sheets of sub floor.

I just hope everything else major works when I de-winterize and test everything next week!

I'm the kind who would never look for that problem. Sure will now. Thanks for the heads up and the photos.

Two of the 15 perimeter bolts on my 2016 WH 24rks were so loose I could unscrew them by hand. The others varied in tightness so I snugged them all down with a socket wrench.

This is my first Jayco trailer, though I'm not new to RVing. I traded up for the quality but issues like this, leaks where the awning meets the exterior wall, and fresh water vent/overflow puking experienced by me and others across various models have me wondering.
