Did they keep you informed on how your order was progressing or did you have to bug them for info?
I'm going to call them today to see if they can give me at least a time line on when I am scheduled for the build. Wireman
Wireman no clue on the leaking valve but definitely a warranty repair & no way of catching that during PDI. Shocking to go and do a typical tank cleaning after camping, upon taking the cap of main sewer pipe to be greeted by black tank contents, not a way to start my day. (the black tank drains were completely closed position)

Regarding communication, no they did not keep me updated at all. I had a copy of the Purchase order they placed with Jayco and I initiated any/all communication with them who insisted on emailing . He did reply until he got tired of not having answers. Honestly I had 2 conversations directly with Jayco during this time telling me when my trailer came off the line and when it was handed to transport. They were some really nice folks. From there it's all on the dealer.

Additionally I "believe" all trailers deliver to Menifee for check in and PDI's are done at either Riverside or Temecula.

I'm helping a friend tomorrow take delivery of his first trailer who ordered at the Pomona show with the Owner of Richardson's out of Menifee, he did not get the choice of PDI location, it was automatically Riverside.

I have issues with my overflow tubes dumping an excessive amount of fresh water from my tanks also when I fill them. What is the fix?

Took 1/2 barbed plug on one end threaded on other, couple of hose clamps and simple PVC caps.

Take caps off when filling fresh water to see when full, close during transit, open before using any plumbing once set up for camping.

Am sure many fixes available, this was easiest for me.

Hope this helps

Wanderer, I think all initial deliveries of trailers go to Menifee. Then depending on where you purchased it, it goes to that location. As I said my salesman is in Menifee and that is where the PDI & hitch setup will be done.


That said, things could change but that is my understanding. Wireman

Welcome to the forum and happy camping. Since we reside in AZ and I didn't want to pay a ton of add on fees I purchased my unit from a dealer out of Michigan. They saved me over 11K from what the dealers here wanted. Please also see my post on New Units and Dexter EZ-Lube axles.

Hi Camp Winican,
The over flow tubes serve a specific purpose. You really don't want to try a FIX what might not be wrong. When I fill my tank (48) gallons I have a lot of over flow as well but it's there for a reason. I wouldn't mess with it.

Here are a several other threads in the forum sharing experience and fixes on the issue for alternatives. Surely nice to arrive to your campground with full water when boon docking.

Hi Steve,

We ordered out Jayco Greyhawk at the Pomona RV show too and just picked it up a week ago. The dealer (Richardson's RV) and Jayco both said the same thing as you heard (there was a huge backlog at Jayco). Jayco said ours took a bit longer than usual because of full body paint.

Hope you get the call soon that yours is ready!

- James

I've been in contact with the GM at Richardson's in Riverside, and he has kept me updated on our situation, including the backlog jgerhard is referring to. 19 weeks later, our rig on its way from Indiana with a potential eta of tomorrow. We're hoping to sign papers and take it off the lot by Friday. *fingers crossed*
