Jayco recalls some trailers: Fresh water tank could fall off

5

Jayco, Inc. is recalling certain 2019 Jay Flight TF travel trailers, model 32RLOK. The supports for the fresh water tank may be too thin, resulting in the brackets breaking and the tanks detaching from the trailer.

A detached water tank would be a road hazard, increasing the risk of crash.

Jayco has notified owners, and dealers will install a threaded rod in the center of the water tank support apparatus to provide additional support, free of charge. The recall began May 9, 2019. Owners may contact Jayco customer service at 1-800-517-9137. Jayco’s number for this recall is 9901433.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).

I am a Mobile Service Technician and this week we had a black tank fall out of a keystone 5th wheel and a gray tank fall out of a heartland 5th wheel. Heartland owned up and is taking care of cost to fix. Keystone said over filled and refused to cover any replacement cost

Just use “Duct tape ” to solve problem

“The supports for the fresh water tank may be too thin, resulting in the brackets breaking and the tanks detaching from the trailer.”

Apparently, that’s what they started with. Now they propose to use a “threaded rod” to fix it.
So, a layer of duct tape held in place by one screw?

That and a few spots of hot-melt glue, I s’pose. As for “over-filled”?!? How is it possible to “overfill” a tank? Oh… now I understand. The Keystone components are not rated for “use” … it is the owner’s fault if parts fail under normal use. Like filling a tank will “overfill” it and cause it to burst or tear loose from its supports. Seems that brand of RV is “unfit for purpose” the moment it rolls out the factory door.
