Jayfeather wheel clearance

Post  Northern Jay on Thu Apr 09, 2009 10:10 pm

Just took delivery of our new Jayfeather LGT 311 today and noticed that the there is only about 1" clearance above the tire to the wheel well. Also there is slight rub marks on the wheel well. Just wondering if anyelse has noticed this on there Jayco.

Not good...., the more weight you add to the TT that clearance will tighten. Take the TT back to the dealer and request that a warranty claim be forwarded to Jayco. The proper clearance should be around 3" (when loaded) .

Take some photos for your records, and ask for a copy of the service report when you take the TT into the dealer.

Is this going to cause damage or is there nothing to worry about?

That just doesn't seem right to me. Tires should not be rubbing on the wheel well IMO.

If you only have 1" clearance and the TT isn't even loaded for camping yet, then "YES" it will cause considerable damage. This is not a normal condition, IMO take the TT back to the dealer ASAP!

Maybe this will hit home, check this link out: "Dexter Axles"

Our 2008 Jayfeather 29D has about (as near as I can measure) 1 3/4" clearance between the tires and the wheel wells.. It is fully loaded, ready for camping, There is no evidence of tires rubbing or ever having rubbed on wheel wells. To date, we have pulled the trailer approx 2000 miles, mostly on good roads. Hope this helps.

I should have added that it is common but a problem the dealer should be well aware of it

Very Happy We are so appreciative of this post! My previous thread shows how unconcerned I was that this was a problem, however, I went and looked again. Sure enough, there were wheel marks on the passenger side wheel well. I e-mailed Jayco and they said to take the trailer to our dealer and have it checked. We did, and the technician just called and said he had sent pictures to Jayco and they had instructed him to replace the axles. He was in the process of ordering the parts and would keep us posted on the repair but it would take a while for shipment and replacement. Whatever it takes, it is a relief that Jayco stands behind its products!
