Happened to me but only the material ripped on mine.... Replaced it and so far all's well...

Mine made sooo much noise that I'm totally surprised you didn't realize it was happening until you stopped later....

Others with experience and recommendations will be appreciated.

Still under warranty? Call FR they will help you.

Thank you for the response. Can you share what company and materials did you use in the repair.

We were in quite a storm when it happened. I was trying to keep the unit on the road.

Any advise and suggestions very much appreciated.

DH

My entire unit didn't rip off coach as you say yours did.... Only the cover itself ripped and was ruined.... I simply bought the replacement cover and slid the ruined one out and the new one back in... Problem solved.....

Had one at the rally a week ago checked and motor shot. Did the same as yours. If under warranty contact your dealer. Later RJD

Thanks to all. Contacted dealer and setting times for review and repair. We are in Angel Fire, NM now so closest place for repair may be Canon, CO.
