Rear wall Repair
I sure hope this isn’t a common problem among RVer’s. After driving on a rough road in Northern California, and 12,000 miles of driving around the country, we noticed a problem on our Jayco 345BHS.
This picture shows that the rear wall moved. The trim concealed most of the problem, but I noticed on the driver side rear, that the rear wall moved about 1/2”. A little surprised, I pushed on the wall, and with some effort it moved back into place. I have a little background in home construction so I figured I would be able to fix it.
I removed the bunk bed, and the corner trim on the inside to get a better look at the problem.
I sure hope Jayco typically uses more than 4 screws to secure the wall, but that’s how many I found. I determined the best way to repair the wall would be to remove the broken screws and add more to hold it together.
The job itself wasn’t too difficult, but the weather was a different story.
