Electrical outlet caulking

This is the other:



Why is one sealed with putty and the other not???

Re: Wtf?

Is one 110volt and the other cable/sat? If so there is probably more concern with moisture entering the 110.

Bought new? Maybe an after thought of the PO or at the dealership?

Both have foam gaskets, on mine all of them have caulking "just in case". Looks like Jayco forgot one, I'd grab a tube of caulking at your next roof inspection or fall inspection and caulk it just in case...

Maybe the foam gasket ran away from the flag.

Just kidding. I had to do it! Honestly, purely a joke!

Yeah this was clearly a manufacturing error. It's a 2014 and been in my driveway all of 2 months. It's going back in the fall for a healthy list of fixes, so this will be addressed as well.

Can anyone answer this - what all is done in a PDI? Is there a standardized checklist from Jayco for all the things to check? I would love to see a copy if there is.

Yes, there is a standard list that you sign after your PDI at your dealer to start the warranty. Every Jayco has this and if you didn't sign or see it your dealer missed a step... Hope the PDI was no charge.
