When the dealer fixed my leak. The tech removed the screws in the frame area of the underbelly. He then pulled the belly away from the frame to expose the sprayer, nothing was cut. They left the area open until I inspected the repair.

Ernie,

Your right, on some floorplans cutting may not be required......, all depends on the tank location and surrounding restrictions (axles, piping, etc.).

In some cases I've seen where Jayco incorporated little underbelly cut-out sections for accessing things like slide motors.., which made it easy to find in the event a slide failed and it had to be manually cranked in.

Maybe I will take a better look of my tt underbelly,I would rather not drive 3hrs each way back to dealer if I dont have to I already fixed two of the other issues myself(they sent me new electric stabilizer motor that I re-installed and I fixed loose city water connection myself).Maybe I should be on their payroll

Well I just fixed the black water flush system leak.I took apart a loose 1/2 plastic nipple that screws into side of tank.Im glad I was able to fix, it saved me a 6hr round trip +gas road trip to dealer.Thats the good news,but the bad news is that for those of you wondering why there is always still water in the black tank, is that the discharge port where the dump valve is loacated is backpitched from the factory,it looks like there is pitch from the underside until you remove the underbelly and see where it is connected to holding tank.I guess there will always be a need for chemicals.

Glad yo got your leak fixed.
The dealer called today & the tech couldn't find the slide leak. The tech's answer to our problem is that we need slide out covers. They will install them for $1871.66, that price includes our discount.
Also one of the slide motors needs to be replaced.

Were you having problems with slide motors or did that one just come up now? When will it end ? I guess I`m going to have to look in a extended warranty after the 2 years.I wonder what they get for that.

It's the bedroom slide motor. It has made a loud clunking noise since the day I bought the trailer.

Good luck with the repair,let me know how you make out.Hopefully thats the last of my issues for a long while,probably not.The next time out will be in early November and that will probably be last for season.

If I had been told that, it would have gotten ugly. The leak needs to be fixed, not covered up, especially not on your dime! You need to call Jayco!

Jeannie,
I feel the same way that you do. I will calling Jayco in the morning. (they were already closed when I got the info from the dealer in Menifee Ca.)
I kept my cool.
(The total price of the slide out covers is $2256 including shipping)
