Unfortunately you will likely be out of luck. Even if the dealer is willing to repair it, repairs usually take a LONG time... weeks if not months for most things. Unless its a simple repair, the dealer will likely have to get authorization from Jayco, then order parts, wait for them to be delivered and then start working on your rig. And that is if they don't have a wait list of RV's ahead of you.
If I can save thousands of dollars, I am willing to go out of state to buy. I almost went about 300 miles away to Albany for mine, but a local dealer came within a couple hundred bucks for me. If we are talking $3K to $6K savings, I will make a vacation out of it. That is a LOT of money being saved.
Also, the RV dealer isn't your only option for repairs. There are plenty of authorized repair places that aren't dealerships. There are lots of stand alone RV repair places that Jayco can authorize to do work.
