Hole in underbelly leaking ?

I had a problem also, sort of like that.I have just bought a fb22 jayco jay flight, I have had it for less then a month.I would filler up with water and it would be ok for awhile .The next day my taps would start to spudder and spit with low water pressure, then no water would come out at all.They put a new pump in , and then they also found that there was two leaks in both of the two corrugated hoses that run between the two fresh water tanks. so they fixed that .All is good now. The techs were telling me that they had other problems with this issue on other trailers.They also took out the water regulators in all the taps , so now the water flows much quicker. the tech said it would be fine to do that , because the taps are rated to handle over 100 psi , and our pump will only push out 45 psi. As for the the holes that they cut out in the under belly to work on the tanks. When they were done the put patches back over them with the same stuff that the under belly is made of (black plastic coated cardboard ) .
They also put some strong type of adhesive , then they put tiny screws all the way around the two patches. looks great now. I hope this helps a bit.

One nice thing about NOT having the enclosed underbelly is that all 3 tanks and the waste plumbing are clearly visible for inspection and should a leak develop the water would simply fall to the ground. The interior plumbing is of course a different story. But I do like the easy access to things on mine. Of course it is not a 4 season trailer but I have camped down to 25 degrees.

They also removed the wet insulation and put new stuff in.
Make sure that the dealer removes the wet insulation.They should know better !!!!

I'd be really concerned that all the moisture from the wet insulation would soak into the underside of the plywood floor, causing it to delaminate and get mold and mildew. You should insist that they rip out the insulation (while you're there so you can inspect the underside of the trailer for mold and mildew). If the plywood is in good shape, then have them replace the insulation and underbelly.
Like already said, it might take a call directly to Jayco customer service.

Dealer doesn't fix it right, and after the second time... CALL JAYCO and get authorized to see a local expert! Our brakes have since been fixed correctly by the local brake guy vs. service techs at the dealer. We love our Jayco, but aren't necessarily thrilled about having a "tech" deal with some issues that are better handled by someone who is trained or more qualified to rectify some warranty issues.

Also, let Jayco know what's going on. Let them know your dissatisfaction with the dealer, concerns about quality control, etc. Call them, but also follow up with written corespondance. They can only attempt to change what it is they become aware of

This is tough one to read. I just can't believe that this would be how a service
department would operate. I agree with the idea of getting hold of Jayco. It seems to me you traded a new trailer for a used one. I would tell Jayco that I would like a new trailer returned to me. The dealership insists that it is as good as new , good than there wouldn't be any problem trading this new one for the new one in the show room. I would think that dealerships would have insurance for this type of thing. I agree that stuff happens sometimes. That doesn't mean that you should have to take a loss. In reality the value of your trailer is now less than one that didn't expierece this. If they had been up front and said what can we do to make this right by you, I would have worked something out. Please keep us informed and print out a copy of the correspondence all of us here and send it to Jayco. Most new owners here take this stuff pretty serious. I hope Jayco will do the right thing and square things with you and send a letter of notice to the non-service dept. Good luck. Richard

Richard has a good point. A while back, several members PM'ed me to let me know they had good results passing on some of the different threads regarding linguring issues and suggestions to rectify them that they had to Jayco with positve results.

Unhappy

thanks for everyones input. i will let everyone know how this turns out. i was(am) giving the dealer one more chance to make it right but have not heard from them yet. we are going away for part of the summer pretty soon but will contact jayco before then to discuss this if dealer does not contact me. my problem sounds very similar to donnymacs. freshwater fill and i also quit drawing water from the tank plus very wet insulation . sounds like his dealer fixed it a lot better than mine.

hello everyone,

received a phone call from our dealer yesterday. even though the service department does not seem to think soaked insulation is a problem others at the dealership think otherwise. so they will go in and replace the insulation and get it fixed right. thank you for everyones input.
