You got a bad one. Regrettably it happens now and then. Hopefully after you get these issues resolved you can go camping and put it behind you.

I'm a pretty observant guy but I don't agree that all of that would be noticed on a PDI. Yes, you would think it would. But we missed several small things on our PDI. Probably the excitement of the day, and even though we've had trailers before, it was all still a bit overwhelming. We did catch a couple of things. And some were things we didn't even look at during the PDI, like a piece of trim that goes inside a channel on the back end at the roof line that was cut too short. I didn't see that until the first time I washed it.

Uh, no, I'm not. But if you read the items I quoted, yes, they weren't hidden.
And it's not polite to shout.

Update - NEW ISSUE. Hot water heater qiut working. Local Jayco dealer was totally no help. They were even rude. Basically told me that "You didn't buy it here so get lost. Local Jayco dealer also sold other brands and told me quote " Jaycos are a piece of cr**. After hiring a mobile repair service and working with Customer Service at Atwood and the service dept. by phone at the dealer I bought it from, a total of 12 hours of labor and hundreds of dollars the CS suggested be replaced; we finally isolated it down to being a looped gas line installed at the factory under the hot water heater which was laying over a 2x2 board which holds the HW heater level. The weight of the HW heater was directly on the gas line eventually pinching the line in 2 places. LOTS OF LUCK TO ME OF EVER GETTING ANYTHING FROM JAYCO BECAUSE I DIDN'T TAKE IT TO THRIR LOCAL DEALER WHO TOLD ME TO GET IN LINE. Was anyone going to pay for a motel for weeks? Happy camping.

Wow! Our 264BHW worked near perfectly for 32 days of camping this year. Only issues were water pump needed new clamp as would not pressurize (fixed by dealer quickly), black water tank meter wacky sometimes, and small crack in entry door from window to handle (put some clear automotive protective tape over this).

You're shouting here! I'm sure if you do that with dealers you don't get much done.
Some times it is unfortunate you have to go to warranty claims. And yes some times work done at the factory can be poor for whatever reason there should be no excuse.
Because there is a high demand that's what happen to all manufactures.
What I recommend is to discus the problems calmly with Jayco and explain things in a proper manner. They have given good service to many here on the board and there are a lot happy campers here. Dealers are different from one to another. You choose a dealer far from your home so live with that. Maybe Jayco can do all the jobs at their plant service outlet. Believe me complaining never got any body far. Good luck with what ever choice you make.

Shouting, because i use all caps ?

Do you think because I use all caps I'm shouting.? I'm about the most polite person you could find. I didn't get to where I'm at today by being rude. Maybe by using all caps shows I'm not internet savy, just old. The only rude people involved in this is the people I've dealt with. Responders to my threads need to know who to accuse.
