Our Georgetown SE350TS

We just purchased a used 2008 with 9700 miles on it. Triple slide with bunks for the gran kids. Has anyone experienced anything we should keep an eye out for. I'd rather be proactive than eactive when it comes to fixing things. Also did your rigs come with 2 sink covers or 1
Thanks all

Congrats on your new purchase.
There are all types of different issues. Just check out the posts under the Georgetown heading. One that stands out is the fact water will empty from the fresh water tank during travel. There are postings with solutions from quite a few members. If there's anything particular you need help with just ask away. I'm sure you've seen there are some very knowledgeable people here.

I have already developed a serious leak in the hydraulic slide jacks apparatus. I have not figured out just yet where the leak originates but I heard someoner with a similar problem is facing a bill of $1700 to fix theirs. Mine is still under warranty for a couple of months so hope to getit fixed on their dime this time. You might want to keep an eye out for this particular problem. Somesay is can be a simple O-Ring replacement if caught soon enough.
That obstreperous plastic-sheathed 50 Amp shore power chord is amost impossible to get in and out of the small bay where it is stored in my 2010 GT 350 TS. I finally replaced mine with rubber sheathed 50 Amp cord and it is a piece of cake now to manage. The replacement cord cost about 250 bucks at Home Depot but you can likely get it cheaper elsewhere.
I'm having quite a bit of problems with my slides. I don't tknow if this is a common trait of Forest River units or if there is any preventative action that will keep you from having these issues. You might want to keep your eye on the forums.
Enjoy your coach.
Lloyd

Well I finished waxing the main body (got to do the roof when it's cooler) and replacing the screws I saw with rust with stainless. As an FYI as I was waxing the right hand side of the curved part at the roof, were they hold it back the retainer strip from the front cap I found the roof fiberglass not sealed real well. Cleaned it and sealed it. You can find all sorts of things as you detai, some you want to know some you don't. The coach looks great, I will hit it all again in about 60 days with another coat of Nu-Finish. It's amazing how much stuff this cleaned. up.

We are heading to Williston Crossing RV campground (in Williston Florida) on Firday of this week just to sit and relax. We were there 2 years ago when the bank took it over. It is now under new ownership and it's a beautiful place. $29 a night plus a Good Sam discount. Take a look at it on line, the web site needs to be updated a little as much progress on completing some things has been done.. We will be in pull thru 332 of anyone heads there. Stop in and say hello.

There is a known issue with slides tearing the vinyl floor. There is some kind of pourly designed roller system under there. Under normal circumstances it shouldn't happen.

Mine worked fine until I loaded about 150lbs of tools into the dinette seat. Then the next time I ran the slide out it tore up the vinyl. For right now I'm just living with it. I haven't decided what to do yet.

There is also the issue the issue with spark plugs getting stuck in these ford V10's when you try to remove them. It's a 2007 and earlier problem. But my 2008 georgetown is on a 2007 chassis.

You can read about the spark plug problem here:
Ford Modular engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You can tell what year your chassis is by using the ford VIN decoder:
