Sometimes it is a treasure hunt. When you own an RV or travel trailer, it can be a fun search to find the right parts. This is especially so when you are an owner of an older Jayco RV or trailer. Getting the right leads is important as there will be times you need the part in a hurry.
Jayco RVs and trailers are not and were not made by an obscure, out-of-business company decades ago. That means their parts should still be found when you conduct your search. Two places you can go are Jayco Factory Direct and WorldWide RV.
When you need parts in a hurry, it pays to have a source you can turn to to find those parts quickly. Keep reading to get the information you need for Jayco parts. A couple of minutes of your time is all that is needed to get help fast.
Your go-to location for Jayco parts will be influenced by your budget. You can try contacting Jayco directly but they may only be set up to sell to dealers and not customers. You would have to talk to them to find out how they are set up.
But even if they do not sell directly to their customers, there are places to go for factory direct parts that will work on your Jayco RV or trailer. The two main ones have already been listed. A quick internet search will also find similar companies near your location.
If you do not have a large budget to work with, then it has been suggested you look at used parts dealers or salvage yards. These dealers should have the parts you need at a lower price and they may even have some older parts for those owners who are still using their original RV or trailer.
Another place to find leads for Jayco parts is to go to the different Jayco and RV discussion forums. These websites always have information where you can find quality parts at a reasonable price.
Just be careful as there is a Jayco catalog that comes up in different searches. This does not seem to be a parts company associated with the RV manufacturer.
If you are looking for a hard copy of a Jayco parts diagram, you should talk to a Jayco dealer and see if they have a manual for your model and year of RV or trailer. Usually, these owner manuals come with diagrams on some of their pages to help you troubleshoot any problems.
Or you can go to Jayco itself and look on its website for their manuals that are downloadable. That link is right here. Then if you go to this link, you will find a variety of parts diagrams for the different systems on your RV or trailer.
All you have to do is find the right diagram and download it to your computer, then print it off. Some of the threads on the different RV discussion forums have old links from many years ago, so be careful of the threads and links you find. Make sure they are up to date and functioning.
You may find that different online outlets have their own catalog of parts they have available. The first one will be Jayco Factory Direct and their website is at this link. Another parts outlet, WorldWide RV has its own catalog as well and it is found at this link.
Then this website has a variety of catalogs for Jayco parts and the companies all seem to be different from each other. That list may change from day to day but it is hard to tell. Some listings seem to be on there for only a few hours.
Also, they seem to be located in different parts of the country, so you may find an outlet near you. When you do the search, be careful that you do not come across any websites that have names similar to Jayco’s.
Those websites will be marketing different parts and may delay your search a little bit. Or you can check them out to see if they have the part you want.
When you are looking for specific parts for a specific model of RV or travel trailer, it is always best to go to the source. That way you can get the correct information and if they do not sell them directly to you, they should be able to recommend a location that will.
In our search, the above links we already posted here came up and you will find them popping up for any model you are looking to get parts. You can also try this link as it is related to Jayco directly and they should be able to help you with a parts list for the Jay Flight.
Or if you want to go universal, you can try Amazon as they list a lot of parts that may work on your Jay Flight model of RV or trailer. This outlet may have the part under a different name and it may save you money as well.
When you are looking for new parts for your Jayco Eagle or other models of RVs, etc., you will need to find the model number and the serial number of the part that is broken. These may be in different places on the part and you should look for the badges and tags to find them.
The same sources for the Jay Flight will apply here. Many stores do not put a parts list up online as they may or may not have them in stock at the time. You just have to contact them directly and see what they can do for you. They may be able to tell you the model and serial number if you are lucky.
Or you can try contacting used parts dealers and salvage yards to see what parts they have on hand. Contacting Jayco is always a good possibility and if you ask they may be able to send you a p[arts list. It never hurts to ask.
We have already linked to several places online where you can find factory-direct parts for your Jayco RV or trailer. Those are a good starting point if they are near you. You may or may not have the budget to buy those parts at those locations so there are alternatives.
You can try Amazon and other online marketplaces. Depending on the part needed there may be a universal substitution you can use and at a far lower cost. Plus, the different hardware or home improvement big box stores may be of some service to you.
Then there are all the national RV parts and accessory stores that dot the nation. They may have a good selection but like official parts outlets, their prices may be a bit on the high side.
Finally, there are all those used parts stores, salvage yards, flea markets, and even some garage sales that may have some parts you need. You never know until you look. This search may be more time-consuming as their parts selection may be few and not even close to what you are looking for. But the price may be more to your liking.
Before you contact one of the many parts outlets that can help you. Take the time to search for the model and serial number. Those are the two most important numbers you will need when searching for a replacement part.
When you call or send the company an e-mail make sure to give them those numbers. Sometimes a diagram may help if the part is a bit obscure or has a weird shape to it. According to the Jayco parts in that last link, they want you to use their contact form on that page.
They are asking for the VIN number on your RV or trailer so make sure to have that handy as well. That web page has the location of the VIN numbers for the trailers and Class A, B, C RVs
Searching for parts when you own a newer RV or trailer is not going to be hard. It is when your vehicle is older that you will have some trouble locating replacement parts. That is why you cannot rule out flea markets, salvage yards, garage sales, or used parts dealers.
They may have that older part you need. The key to which parts outlet you use will depend a lot on your current budget. Some parts can be expensive at one outlet but not so expensive at others.
Once you get the part, you have to decide on if you will install it yourself or let someone else handle that task.
