I have a Jayco travel trailer that has two pop-out sections…

Customer Question
I have a Jayco...

I have a Jayco travel trailer that has two pop-out sections on the back side. Larger pop-out is in living/dining area and I have a leak in corner of pop-out near water heater/furnace closet. Cannot locate where moisture is coming from. Any suggestions on source of leak?

Mechanic's Assistant: What part of the car is the leak coming from? And are you sure it's water?

It a travel trailer not a car & yes it is a leak cause water damage is quite extensive.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your RV?

2012 Jayco Jayflight travel trailer. Do you need more into on trailer

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes we are. We have cut a rather large hole in flooring to expose rotted flooring under carpet. Wood framing had quite a bit of rot & insulation was quite damp. Cannot locate where water is entering area under floor. Have put silicone caulking on exterior of pop-out to see if that solved problem but did not work. Light rain today & area is getting damp again.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

We just purchased the trailer approx. a month ago & did not know of issue until after purchase.

RV Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), RV Mechanic replied 8 months ago

I see them.

2012 Jayco Jayflight travel trailer What is the model number so I can see the floor and slide out layout?

Have you used a hose to water test and try to find the leak origin?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
we've just tried that & water is coming in from somewhere. We are not able to locate where the water is getting into the trailer. Only wet area is under floor where you see hole that we cut out. Year is a 2013 not a 2012 Jayco Jayflight & trying to find model number on trailer cuz title does not list a model number.
Label on outside of trailer says 32BHDS so we think that may be model number.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
is there any way you could call me? I am willing to pay the fee for the call back.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
