Thanks for the replies.

As to the roof issue, they told me they will install some type of metal roof cap..I imagine it will be some type of curved metal panel that will roll upwards from the top of the sidewall. My wrinkles look exactly the same as the other fellow posted. I will keep everyone up on the progress of the repair.

The 5 star tune made a BIG difference on my ACE. The ACE is much lighter with the same powertrain as the XL so of course it had better overall performance. I have a 5 speed chassis, I think the six speeds are just now hitting the dealer lots. Will be interesting to see how well they perform.

We have an enclosed motorcycle trailer that we pulled behind the ACE across American and back. We want to take a car next time and I would like to try to pull an aluminum enclosed trailer with a car inside. Trailer is about 2600 pounds and car is 3100 pounds...so just over the rated rate for the chassis. Didn't know if anyone has tried that yet with a F53 Chassis.

Thanks again for your replies!

Actually looking at the Chassis Manual posted earlier (Thanks!!!) it appears that the chassis is rated for up to 6000 pounds of trailer. Will just have to give it a test run and see how it feels. We live in the North Georgia mountains and there is some significant terrain in the area that we can asses the pulling capabilities.

Thanks again!

We 4down tow a Honda Element using the Falcone II and Invisibrake. I have experimented with the tow haul button and found a gear at 60mph with tow haul on that pulls most hills with little effort. I also use it to slow down instead of using the brakes on steep downgrades.

Nice coach. Happy Motoring!! Once you get all the bugs repaired you will enjoy it. Always double check the work done at the dealer. Forest River has always been good with repairs for me.

Congratulations on the new coach. We love ours. I am having my roof fixed next spring in Goshen. I'm not sure what their plans are for the fix. I will keep everyone posted on that.
