Access panel on Island for Hot water bypass

I just purchased a 2014 White Hawk 30dsre and it doesn't have a cover plate to hide the access on the island. This is the access opening that gets you to the hot water bypass and the winterizing syphon tube. Haven't ask Jayco about this but wondering if these things should have a cover plate. Just looks unfinished as is and is very noticable when you open the cabinet door next to the sink.

I would think it should be covered.

You could cut a piece of luan plywood just large enough to over the hole and secure it with 2 small screws. That is how some on my rig are covered.

Thats what I'll do if Jayco won't supply one. Would prefer if it was cut from the same paneling as the interior since its clearly visable when you open the cabinet under the sink.

Hi Bassdogs,

The hot water bypass on my 30DSRE is under the lower shelf of the pantry. The 12volt water pump and winterizing tube are under the island.

You would of course be correct. I hadn't bothered to get down and look closely. The question is, did your's come with a cover over the access hole?

Hi Bassdogs,

yes it did have a cover that seems like a piece of 1/8th inch plywood loosely jammed in there to cover the pump. It's not really well designed just something to cover it up. I think a black cloth with Velcro strips would be a better solution.

regards,

Ron

Just got my response from Jayco on the open access for the pump. "It was a design decision to allow for quick access in an emergency", as their excuse for not covering the opening. I ask them to go out on the factory floor and pick up and send me a piece of scrap paneling so I can make my own cover. We'll see if they come thru. In the mean time I'm going into my shop today to cut one from my scrap pile. Sorry Jayco, this was not your greatest customer service response.
