My dealer say they prep and sanitize, if other do as well they should have found it.

A good dealer will check over all systems to ensure everything works and that you enjoy trouble-free use from your camper the first time you use it. Is the factory responsible? Yes! But I'm sure Jayco relies on their dealers to ensure basic things like this are checked out and in proper working order when the customer takes possession of every unit.

It's just good business . . . and customer appreciation!

IMHO Jayco should have installed the hose correctly at the factory. BUT, the dealer should have checked and sanitized the system before the customer PDI. They both failed if you ask me.

My guess is that some dealers in the midwest and north don't do this year-round because of outside temps...just a theory anyway.

My dealer, here in central Illinois, did not check this out either. However, my trailer was delivered to them in winter. It came winterized from the factory, with anti-freeze in the system. And since I took delivery in mid-March - when the temps can easily (and did) dip well below freezing still, they did not de-winterize.

So I would guess that it depends where you live and when the trailer is delivered as to whether the dealer checks out this kind of stuff.

That does NOT, however, excuse the factory from not paying attention to these basic details. More than one person there did not do their job! The guy(s) who installed the fill tube and the guy(s) who inspect and ensure quality control dropped the ball, for sure!

I had the same issue with my trailer. I removed the stove to shorten the hose as I didn't want to remove the part on the outside of the trailer. The type of hose they use is hard to seal on the barbed fitting. I tried multiple times and it kept slowly dripping as the tank was being filled. I finally added some silicon sealer to the fitting and then put the hose on and clamped it. Let it dry over night before filling the tank. I noticed that Jayco had used some sort of sealer on the connection as well. Glad you figured out the issue.

You're right, but I'm in northern Montana and it arrived in early April and was winterized. I don't think the dealer necessarily should fill the tank with water when it still gets well below freezing at night.

I had a leak with the hoses connected to the water heater, too. The factory should be checking this stuff some how before these units leave the factory.

Same probelm

We just had the same problem, but we found a work around. Inside the trailer under the couch that sits above the fw tank, there is a hose which connects the tank to the outside fill nozel. The hose was bent up, so water couldn't travel uphill to fill the tank. We put some weight to bend the hose down and viola it started filling!!
