With regards to the Jayco X17Z we're picking up on Tuesday, I'm just wondering if there is anything we need to watch out for in particular, especially pertaining to quality?
While our experience with the dealer was not bad (but not great), I'm not overly trusting of them and it's a 2-hour drive to go back if we notice later that they tried to pull a fast one, or if there is something wrong with quality control.
Unless you can camp for a weekend near the dealer in all kinds of weather and use all of the systems multiple times...I can almost assure you that at some point you will be driving back to the dealer for some "punch list" repairs.
Sadly, that's pretty much the nature of the beast with RV's.
I will be surprised if anyone posts that their new rig was perfect and without need of anything - first time out.
Many of us prefer to do most of our own repairs and adjustments - even under warranty unless of course they are major issues.
You'll be fine! Just do a complete and detailed walk thru, with every propane, water system and electric device running as if you were camping...even put the jacks down and open the awning. Jayco does a fine job with quality control...but humans still assemble them!
As said...the little stuff can be taken care of by most folks that have a reasonable ammount of "handyman" experience.
The good thing is that if (IF!) you need some warranty service done, try calling Jayco Customer Service (1800RVJAYCO) in advance and explain what is needed, then if they OK it, you can pick a local hometown RV Dealer of any brand or an Independent RV Repair Shop.
Jayco will usually give you approval to take it there for the needed work, and they'll pick up the bill. They've done it for others here.
Congratulations and Welcome to the Jayco Family!
