Crappiebait it is a shame that Jayco would let a unit leave the factory with the defects that you have mentioned. I am convinced that they check nothing at the factory and let the poor dealer suffer with the consequences of the customer.
There are Jayco Cheerleaders on this sight that love to blame the dealers but the
dealer only delivers the product. Maybe he should have caught some of your problems but Jayco has to take the blunt of the blame for delivering a defective unit to the dealer.
Keep working with your dealer and I hope things turn out well because camping is a joy.

On the hot water issue, when we camp with electric, when it comes time to shower, I will use both 120v and LP on the water heater, it recovers much faster. Just my $0.02.

Thanks for all the info, first it was my fault for trusting the dealer as I could not make the walk thru and trusted them. I'm a pipe welder and travel a lot and practically live in the camper so I have a hard time getting it in to get them to fix it and couldn't stand much down time as I have to work. I agree Jayco is lacking very much so in their Quality Control Department! Dealer said they would look it over for me as I could not be there and therefore it was a trust issue and I know better now. We've pulled it twice now and the slide has not come all the way in on the rear corner nor sealed. I have to do what I have to do to keep working. Be nice if they had portable techs for such problems. I have finally received the bench seat ends but the hardware will be sent later. I told them I would install them myself. I had a fifth wheel thor colorado and a snowbird fifth wheel before this and they each had a ten gallon water tank and we had no problems with hot water issues (length of time) with them. A dealer should know what he has and what he's selling. Called Jayco and all the told me was to keep working with the dealer, I informed them of their quality control issue and they didn't seem to care. Again when I make a bad weld I have to make it right or I'm gone. I stand behind my work and quality is always at the top of the list. I'm held accountable for the work I do, by inspectors, X-ray etc. Thanks Crappiebait

Would really like to get the slide issue resolve even if I could find a good rv tech who could do it or tell me what he thinks is wrong. It's the thing that bothers me the most. I'm nowhere near a camping world where we bought the camper. I can't find the pic i took of it closed but if I find it I will post it. Heeelp! Don't want to pull it to much that way.Crappiebait

We've been satisfied but is starts with the dealer. The absorb any manufacturing issue by performing a complete inspection within a few days of receiving the rigs from Jayco and getting them on the hook for corrective action early.

Thanks Stingray75, the Dealer dropped the ball!

Anyone know someone who might know what's wrong with the slide I could talk too? Crappiebait

Have you tried to do a visual inspection under the floor of the slide to make sure something isnt hindering it closing correctly... i know some on the forum had said that screws protruded from under the slide snagging things ... i would get outside and look under it and also inside and raise the carpet and see if something visual is causing it

Not sure how to search by name but. Try to find where webby posted about his slide out. He also posted a picture and how to adjust the slide if it is the slide that you have.


Several Questions about Issues with my Slide out / Webby

Every time I read these types of posts it reminds me again why it pays to buy local. I understand that Jayco ultimately is responsible for the type of trailer that leaves their plant. And I also feel bad for the dealers who get stuck repairing things that should work flawlessly on a brand new trailer.
But as with almost everything a person buys that has numerous complex systems involved, "flawless" is a rare commodity. I feel badly for those who buy from dealers many miles or hours from their homes and then find that repairs or adjustments are needed. But I am grateful that we have a conscientious dealer 2 miles from where we live. I wish you well in getting your trailer sorted out.

We had too many serious problems with our Greyhawk. Slide failures that the dealers didn't have the technical skills to repair. Our new Motorhome spent far more time sitting at the dealer waiting for repairs than in our possession. Extremely frustrating, and Jayco didn't seem to care. Finally, as a last resort, had to hire an attorney to deal with Jayco. We're satisfied now. Sometimes you need a law degree to communicate with knuckleheads.
