It's not like you bought a 1978 broken down MH. Not that there is anything wrong with that. The fact that its 1 years old and FR covered the window just makes the dealer seem like. Take your money And run kind of place. If they knew the product they were selling they would already know about the window issue and would have had it fixes before you ever bought the MH. Good luck and I hope they treat you right. You sound like a reasonable person and hopeful they are also.

Thanks for that. They are not a Berkshire dealer so they may not have known. But you are right in that they should consider that I did not buy an old beat up motor home and treat me accordingly.

Going to pick up the coach Saturday. I was quoted $550. We'll see how it goes.

I am waiting to get our window replaced as well. Could you post pictures of it when yours is done?
Thanks!

There is a good picture of the replacement window on page 3 of this thread. If mine is different I will post a picture.

They charged $500. It was Mike Thompson RV in Santa Fe Springs, California. They even left a $20 bill in the console that they apparently found! The window is the same as page 3 on this thread so no need for pics.

Glad it all worked out. 500 is not small change but all in all not bad. Thats why it important to get those little issues taken care of in warranty. If the original owner had been on the ball he would have had the window replaced. To bad you had to pay. There are so many things that are wrong with any brand MH when they leave the line at the factory. It really is a lot of work to get them working properly in the first year. It does make the years after that more enjoyable. I drove 3-400 miles with that window banging away in my ear. It about drove me nuts.

Did they have to remove the drivers side overhead cabinets and window shades when replacing the window? That seems like a big part of the job and no local shop seems to want to do that for me. I may have to wait until my unit goes back to the factory to get its roof replaced to get my window done. Randy at FR did say they could do both for me then.
