Well had the rig in at my dealer and he said no problem and on my way home I had a hydralic line to the bedroom blow and made the slide move out while driving. What a mess and plenty of fluid all over.
The only way I was able to stop it from moving so I can get it home was to manually trip the 100 amp DC circuit breaker under the steps in the upper left wall..

Dealer has been notified and Forest River will get a call Monday as well as LCI. DAM am I pissed

See the paper ID label blew out and tore.

Iggy, I think I would be demanding or at least asking forcefully for a higher strength hose be used on ALL hyd. lines. After reading all the hyd. problems on this forum, if, and I mean a big IF, we were buying a FR product with hydraulics of any kind, I would make it part of the deal to have all the hoses have at least 3x the max press. of the pump installed.
