1300 miles later we made it back to Texas... Yellow dying grass and heat!!! (hey, but we've been gone 2 weeks and I forgot to turn on the sprinklers when we left...)
Found a few items that need to be addressed. We left JC at 3:00 pm in Friday, right before they were closing shop for the weekend. That, combined with the scale of work done on the trailer, there were bound to be a few issues we would find after we got home...
- Missing bracket and screws that secures the curtains over the top part of the front wrap windows (the end stopper and bracket are missing), both curb side and road side
- Missing screws to hold curtain bracket in channel on roadside lower by wrap around window.
- Gap between wall and roadside nightstand.
- Missing Rivet below curbside bedroom window.
- Bed frame bowed in center, frame separated curb side under bed.
- Fridge still gets to 60 deg on propane (this was a warranty item that was supposedly fixed with gas pressure setting)
- Roadside inner skin on ceiling large gaps on curve between rivets. (perfect on curbside)
- Curbside inner skin on ceiling seam not aligned. (perfect on roadside)
Overall I'm still pleased with the work, but the there are a few minor fit/finish issues that can be improved for the next person. One of the objectives of this thread is to give insight to major skin repairs at JC to fellow forum members, as well as allow JC see the end result of their work, with hopes they can improve on some of the findings here.
My recommendation for anyone thinking to come to JC for major work is to spend more time at JC to check the work prior to leaving. Our situation dictated we had to leave that day to get home for work on Monday....
Anyways, I'll have to follow up with JC on these findings and see if they or the dealer can get them addressed for us.
Again, I'd still go up there for work, especially of this magnitude.... but I haven't tried pulling in the rain or strong storm yet. (to see if there are any leaks, new or old). Ask me then and I may have a different answer!
