I had this done a couple of weeks ago and it looks absolutely beautiful. The caps go the length of my coach. ONE NOTE OF CONCERN. When the attached the new rails they must have pierced one of the 12v power lines that run down the passenger side of the coach. The fuse for the hall light, bathroom vent, and front temperature control unit was blown and would blow as soon as it was replaced. They had to run a new 12v line from the hall light through the AC duct to the front of the coach and now all is well. No Regrets here... again, the new roof side rails look great and no more worries of cracks or ripples.

Roof Warranty??

Let's home they are smart enough to use screws of the right size or wear against the wires will be a long time issue.

FYI, just got my 2015 Georgetown 351DS back after having the warped radius caps fixed under warranty. It looks great now, hope the repair holds up.

Ok campers.... Just picked up the GT after hVe several warranty items done to include the radius caps for the roof. They look awesome! We'll see, headed out for the Smokey Mountains in a few weeks.

I have to say it took FR a while to process the claim but did it right in the end.

My roof also being fixed under warranty. I would have not found this issue if it had not been for this forum. Thanks.

Hope it stands up under time.

Not hard... Just spoke with RV shop today looks like the missed some spots😳, was the exact wording....

The water was coming from cabinet above the door. In out GR it looks like this is where the two roof joints are. It leaked right there and ran down the track system. Click image for larger version
