Berkshire Roof Coming Apart

During the safety inspection, I was looking at the roof and found the metal strapping holding and sealing the roof to the frame has buckled on each side of the rig in the same spot. Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated. See photos.

Hi wmorton46, that's terrible, I can't believe you've had no replies. have you contacted Forest River, did they get back to you? you might add your post to the Berkshire forum they are really good about helping.

That needs to go back to the factory, IMO.

I would contact their warranty/repair folks asap before the damage becomes worse.

WOW I would fill that with some caulking and contact warranty that shouldn't happen. Keep us posted on what FR says and does. WOW

Berkshire Roof Coming Apart

I answered you post where you had it posted earlier. You should get some Berkshire response here.

Your pictures for sure made me go check mine. Mine is a 2014 as yours and I see no problem with mine.

A call to FR is a must for you. A problem occurring on both sides tell me that something rather big is going on.

Good luck. I'm guessing FR will get right on this.

Definitely get a hold of Randy at FR and send him the pictures. I would do everything I could to get it to the factory to have it repaired. No way a dealer would touch it. In the mean time get some of that tape on it. I forget the name someone will jump on here with it. The tape will hold for several months until you can get it fixed permanently.
