Sorry to hear that BJ. My pump was replaced not long after I got my MH. Sent the wrong one twice, took about a month to get it right. No leaks now, except for the filler cap, which leaks "as designed".

Happy Trails, Forrest

If you are getting fluid out the cap that means you have too much fluid in the tank. With everything in and up it still should be 1" below the top or it will continue to over flow when al the fluid is pushed back into the tank when you raise the levellers and/or slides go in.
Sooner or later it will get to the final llevel if it continue to flow out the cap.

Mine leaked out the cap as well when it was new, but the dealer quickly realized that it was overfull and bled it down to the "line". Since then it hasn't leaked, at least until the hoses went bad.

BTW, Forest River has agreed to replace all the orange hoses on my unit with new ones. I am dropping it off at the dealer on Monday. Thanks to FR and this Forum!

Dealer replace hoses under extended warranty contract. Could have waited for FR, but didn't want to wait the 2-3 weeks for delivery.

Just contacted April Conner of Forest River about failing orange hoses. She wanted the VIN# to see what she can do, it's Saturday so maybe I'll hear more on Monday.
I like doing all my own maintenance and repairs and I know this isn't rocket science but if Forest River sends me new hoses is it a very difficult procedure if I decide to change them myself? I just think I could have it done quicker and probably better than if I bring it to the dealer to have it done.

There is a thread with details and pictures. If FR covers it I would let the dealer do it

Tim, generally they have been covering the replacement of the hoses for original owners, so I don't know if they'll cover it for you, but it doesn't hurt to ask. In another thread, you mentioned that you bought the Georgetown with a 7-month warranty from the dealer, so the issue should be covered under that. I'd take it to the dealer and let them replace the hoses under that warranty.

I thought of that 7 month warranty but thought I'd try with Forest River first and see what comes back, if they won't cover it then my next choice is 1000 Islands RV where I bought it used.
Thanks for the advice, I'm going to look for that thread on how to do it myself just in case I'm S.O.L. with the whole issue.

Thanks again, we'll see what happens next week.

Tim

Just an update.
Fortunately I purchased the extended warranty. Carolina Coach in Clement NC handled everything for me with the extended warranty folks and they replaced the pump motor and a leaking cylinder for the main slide.
My cost- $54 freight for parts and $50 deductible. Slide movement is much quieter and faster as well. Problem solved. Thanks Carolina Coach.
