Swift Dry Lock leak prevention system ?

Hi To All

We got a 2012 Jay Flight Swift SLX 154BH, Jayco's web site says that it has Swift Dry Lock leak prevention system.

I called and ask them what the Swift Dry Lock leak prevention system is, and they said that they had no idea what it is, I was told that they would try to find out and call me back, 5 weeks later a they have not called me back.

Does anyone know what Swift Dry Lock leak prevention system is? May be just a sound's good sales pitch!

Never heard of Swift Dry Lock prevention system but, sorry to say, if it was applied with workmanship similar to my Sunnybrook I wouldn't put too much faith in it. These workers skill levels would be put to the test flipping burgers in a fast food restaurant.

I've never seen such poor construction quality.

I attempted to find it on their website to no avail. What I did find was amusing and might reflect on their company badly. Read the specs here , how can two different length trailers have different UVW's, different pin weights, and yet have the same GVW and CCC?

I agree that Jayco's website and brochures are not very well designed and are often inaccurate, vague, and/or contradictory.

That's funny, I went back to their web site and they have removed it from their specs. It was on there before I called them to ask what it was, since they could not tell me what it was, that tells me that they didn't know what it was or there is no such thing, so they removed it form their site.

Like I said I think it's just a sounds good sales pitch!

I suspect the main definition of the dry lock system is writers/advertising largesse.
