I would think that the factory could do the work possibly since the walls need to be opened up and re-sealed. Maybe see the possibly and turnaround since it's the skin.

Just an option that might be worth the trip. Plus you can see the factory while there.

Glad to see they are going the extra mile to satisfy your issue to your liking.

I had my cap replaced twice. Once under warrant and once insurance claim.
The first time they opened it up, there was moisture on the inside because the clearance lights were not sealed properly.

I would give strong consideration to taking the trailer to Jayco for them to do this major of a repair. They certainly know how to do it. If that is an option.

Been very happy with Colerain RV. If Jayco is so close to you, I'd recommend going right to the source for the fix.

I would recommend sooner than later. Only because you are going for the full wall replacement. The sooner you do this, the longer you will have on your remaining warranty to watch for leaks at the newly replaced seals/joints. They will not extend your warranty to cover this.

On the other hand, if you have plans you have already made and would be out the money to cancel those, you should wait.

You will need to decide which version works best for your situation.

Mine took a whole season for replacement both times.
They just do not have the materials on a shelf. They have to include those parts when they do a manufacturing run. If you have to have wood replaced, that's the same thing also.

This past Columbus Day weekend, I brought my fifth wheel to the Factory for repairs (I made an appointment months in advance). The Factory has several camp-sites right at the repair facility lot. 50 amp service at the "site" and a dump station with potable water nearby (the potable water is near the building and dump station near the road). It was a very pleasant experience for us. I too would recommend Jayco for the repair(s).

I guess the ideal scenario would be to get something in writing and have Jayco do the repairs next Fall/Winter during the off season so you would not miss any camping. I agree with the others, not sure how many dealers can tackle this repair. But then again I`m just guessing on that.

excellent! Glad to hear Jayco came through for you. I WOULD get the panel replaced asap before someone "forgets" about repairs promosed to you expecially since no claim # etc was given to you. keep us updated, expecially with some after pics.

I live about four hours away from factory. Even though our dealer is a great dealership, I would take mine to the factory. If thing do not go well the factory definitely should stand behind their work.
