I am glad your trailer didn't leak.
I don't have awning slides. It shouldn't leak with or without them.

I hope that they do it right Ernie. Moisture is a real pia.

Moisture leads to MOLD.

Good Luck with the repair and let us know how you make out.The only reason I was asking about the awnings is that Im wondering how good the seal is around My tt I have awnings and maybe that stops the water from directly hitting seals,but in any event it still should not leak.Im going to call dealer up today to see what they say about my black water flush leak(its just a pia to go drive back 3hrs to dealer and hopefully I can wait for repair)

As soon as I get the leak resolved I will put awnings over the slides.
You can fix the black tank leak yourself, just loosen the under belly and look for the flush line to the black tank. The nipple at the black tank needs to be removed & put teflon tape on the threads & re install it.

Ernie, sorry to hear about the leaks. I guess we were lucky in that we have not had hardly any problems with our 33 RLDS, except for the self adjusting brakes. We are kinda thinking that with all the problems that people are having with the 330 RLTS, maybe Jayco should have done more R&D. I know that things will get better and then it will be time to enjoy yourselfs. Later Ernie

I`m a plumber by trade and pretty mechanical so I`m not affraid to fix black water flush leak,but I dont want to have to cut open underbelly in wrong area or void any other future warranty concerns saying I tried to fix myself.

If you have your dealer access the black tank, make sure you inspect how they re-attached the cut-out underbelly section before you leave service center. Check for openings/gaps, and make sure they put enough screws w/flat washers back in.

Once a section is cut out, there are two ways to close it back up. First, using the same cut-out piece of underbelly, add some trim wood on the "backside" of the panels at the seams to screw the panels to (see pic below). Second, install a new larger piece of underbelly material overlapping the existing underbelly panel and screw into it (wood could be used for added screw backing).

The purpose of using the trim wood is to give the screws something thicker than the existing underbelly material to attach to.
