Another quality control issue

It's raining, the trailer is sitting in the back yard with the slides closed & they are leaking water inside the trailer. It ranied every day for 5 days two weeks ago when we were camping, the slides were out and not one leak inside.

Are all the slides leaking? I do not like the sound of this. I have the same trailer!! Hopefully just a minor adjustment in on the slides will take care of it. Let us know.

Not good news. It seems that just about everything that happens to someone else happens to our trailer too. I am beginning to think that this trailer was a major mistake. Still love the floorplan.

We just spent 3 months in ours. We have only had it for 5 months. I have a list of over 30 things to be repaired. From the microwave, toilet, stove, recliner, 3 windows that won't open, rain gutters that sag in the middle of the trailer, slides leaking and the list goes on. We also love the floor plan. I would think twice before I bought anouther Jayco product.

Can I hear an AMEN???


My son bought a Caliber travel trailer made by Heartland. I think he has more problems than we do. So much for Amish quality. Jayco needs to slow down the production line and take away their power tools. I don't think they do well with electricity.

No amen from me. Quality has not been an issue so far. Love everything about it.

Only thing giving me the jitters is the extra ft of height.

I just opened the slides & the carpet is soaking wet from the dining room slide leaking. It makes me sick to my stomach that we spent so much money to have so many problems.

Man I hate that for you Ernie. Have you talked to Jayco again about the situation? What has been their response?

I know the feeling of spending so much money and not being happy. Also know the feeling of having so many problems. I have had my Jayco just over a year have had nothing but problems and a fight with Jayco service to remedy these issues. Love the lay out. but the quality, service, and all around product not good. One would think a company like this would want to "step up" and take care of the issues rather than hoping they will go away. Just my opinion
