It's under warranty but an awful 6 hr trip. Wonder if I could buy motor install it myself? I should check see the cost,how many different one out there? I called forest river they won't just send out motor. I can understand it,almost..

You should be able to get the part info from FR Forester division parts and order one from an online seller.

You can probably just compare it to online pics and get one that will work.

Also, make sure it's the motor ond not the gearbox that's broken. They're sold separately.

It's bolted to the motor. It's a 1/2" thick plate looking piece that's bolted directly to the motor.
