Jayco and warranty for axles
Got back last week form traveling to Yellowstone. During my travels with by 2018 Whitehawk 27 RB, On 10/01/20 I had to stop on Interstate 81 near Rawlins Wyoming only to discover that I have two broken leaf spring brackets on my rear axle system and two affected tires on the left side. Luckily I did not have a life threatening issue except for being broken down on a very busy interstate. Had to have the brackets rewelded back on. Submitted the cost to Jayco as I am still under warranty. They in turn deflected the cost to BAL, the frame manufacturer eight days ago. Still waiting for a reply.
Seven days later, I stopped again in Illinois with a disintegrated spindle / axle on the front axle system!. Jayco then deflected this issue to LCI, the axle manufacturer Its taken until today to have a new axle delivered to the machine shop in Illinois who is doing the repair. Don't know if Jayco / LCI came into agreement with the installation labor cost yet. LCI only offered a 1 hour labor payment.
Bottom line for me is that Jayco delflects any issues to the manufacturers that supplied their parts to the Jayco Units. I told Jayco that I bought a Jayco Unit and not a BAL or LCI unit. Jayco's attitude is that its a manufacturer problem and not a Jayco problem even though they built and sold the TT under the Jayco Brand.
