Another update on our new 2017 Forester MBS 2401WS. First of all, thanks to Joshua from FR for helping us with info via private message ... great to hear from you and much needed advice from our FR lurker on this forum! So, Camping World has come through, sending a great tech out to our storage facility with 2 new slide controllers to replace the burned out one. The new one works great (the first one was indeed broken), BUT ... Still an issue that seems to lie somewhere in the circuitry between controller and system that gives a "parking brake not engaged" error, even when parking brake engaged. Bottom line: won't let the motors retract the slide with that error code. Tech helped us disengage motors in increments to get slide in. Vehicle now back to the dealer for further investigation.
I must say, even stuck in our storage a lot with the slide open, we LOVE this floor plan and everything about this unit! Cannot wait to get it weaned from the dealer and take it on new roads that are NOT directly connected between our store and the dealer in Houston suburbs! And I guess we are learning along the way to become more informed and responsible RV owners.
