It comes in three's

It started by finding the rear stabilizer bracket snapped for the second time. Then I noticed the main slide had the rubber molding hanging outside. The rubber flap the went across the living room floor came off and was half in and half put where the rollers are. Then my wife saw the bathroom ceiling vent had the plastic lens completely shattered. I think to fix the rubber molding the entire slide needs to come out. I think everything possible on this RV has broken at one time or another. We are very sorry we bought this.

I had my rear sway bar bracket break on passengers side twice.
Ford replaced under warranty. Check with your local Ford dealer first about it.

I also had my rear passenger sway bar bracket broke loose twice from its bolts and bend the brackets so you could not installed it back on. Bought new one from Ford cost $ 8.00 and installed back on and tqour it down.

Crazy question. What do I have to do crawl underneath, and what would I expect to see if it had broken? Thanks

My sway bar bracket bolts broke twice. I thought it might have been added stress after I did the cheap handling fix, but have been told that this is not the case. The second time they broke I went to the local Ford dealer and he did not have the bolts, so he told me to go to the local John Deere dealer and get hardened bolts, which I did. Not long after that I had to take my RV to a Ford truck dealer for a recall and asked them to replace the bolts with original Ford bolts. The mechanic looked at it and suggested I leave the hardened bolts as they are better than the Ford bolts. Apparently this is a common problem, my unit is a 2012, I hope they have fixed the problem since then.

Hardened bolts is the answer. At least a #8 will do the job just fine.

I guess I have been lucky I have had no issues with my sway bar. But now I have said something it will happen.
