That is true, warranty starts from day you take possession, Not date of manufacture. I bought mine Oct `09 so it expires Oct `11

That's a relief, we have only had a couple of minor issues so far.

yes mine is the brown leaf or should I say was brown leaf. I will have to check on how the corners are together. At first it was only around the front door but the more I looked the entire border is the nice green color. Poor quality. Even if I did notice this before expired warranty according to Jayco this is not a warranty problem. I think if we keep the trailer and that is a big if-I am just going to lowes and cover w/something of better quality.

The trim paper that passes along the wall above the sink is fading where we wipe down the wall if it gets wet from using the sink. Jayco is sending us a new strip to replace that section.

Another part of the trim wallpaper that ends behind the dinette was not sticking. The dealer fixed it during our first warranty visit and it hasn't come loose since. The paper on ours was all trimmed/cut; none of them torn.

the is quite interesting since so far 2 others according to the posts are having trouble w/the wallpaper. When I called Jayco about the problem I was told that she had never heard of this problem and no one else was having the same complaint.

Mine wasn't a major problem and I never mentioned it here. I'm guessing it really may just be an isolated problem perhaps. When we walk around a campground and stop to chit chat with other Jayco owners, the topic of 'what problems have you had' invariably comes up. I haven't had anyone mention the color change you experienced, or even the 2" piece of trim that wasn't clued well on ours.

Tammy,Scott, I agree with your comments. My last trailer was 15 years old and had several leaks. I was hesitant to buy another trailer but we loved going away so we decided to buy a better product this time and went for a Jayco. We bought the extended warranty. It was something my wife wanted us to do and I caved. I don't agree with them but possibly in a situation like yours it would have paid off.
I worked in a hospital for 25 years and thought I would never get sick. I didn't buy insurance on my mortgage and had I, my mortgage would have been paid off. I am on a disability Income which is close to what I use to make. So I lost on that one, but fortunately I'm ok.
Let us know how it goes on Monday. I know it is a raw feeling when this happens especially when you've taken safeguards against this happening.

Thanks for all the comments. My husband spoke to the dealer today who recommended he cut about a 2inch hole in the black underbelly to help drain the water and air out the insulation. They also gave him tips to trouble shoot ways to find out where the leak is coming from, she estimated about $300.00 repair if we can find the location of the leak. This estimate is much lower than we expected, the dealer is booked out until end of august. He did go and cut the whole and immediate a gush of about a quart of water fell out he also was lucky enough to cut right at 2 pressure hoses. We are going to look and try trouble shooting the leak on Wednesday when I am home to help w/turning water off and on and look for leaks. As for other problems the slide is the other major problem and we will have them check that out when it is at the dealer. Since the tt is out of warranty there are 2 other service places for RV in our area and my husband is actually going to call one of them for advice. I think we have decided to keep trailer until at least next spring and look at the RV shows. So looks like our camping days are on hold for the next month, maybe rodanthe in september, which is my favorite place for vacation.



I will let everyone know how things go.

I'm glad to hear things are looking better for you in a way. I found a small leak in my trailer where the under sink filter goes. Lucky for me it leaked into an open pot I had under there. I was able to reach in and hand tighten it. Tomorrow were heading for Levenworth so I'm glad I fixed it today.
I know some people have chosen to replace the insulation because it takes time to dry and mold may be a problem. Check the posts for more info. The service guys sound like there working with you so that's a good thing. Good luck.
