Hi All

I also have a 2011 Georgetown 300FWS. I am not the first owner, having purchased my unit with 10,000 miles on it. My slide seems to be OK, although I do find that an occasional quick shot of silicone spray along the wedge where the slide rides up seems to make everything work much smoother. My unit has the tapered plastic piece on the bottom edge of the slide opening and two rollers mounted just under the plastic piece, which the slide rides on. It looks like one of my outside cable attachment points has been re-attached.

Does this sound like my Unit has already been modified? From what I read in this thread, it seems so.

One other quick question if I may. My unit has a rectangular shower as opposed to the corner shower shown on the floorplan on the Forest River website. Would this be an early 2011 model?

You are correct in having an "early" 2011 with the rectangular shower. It's hard to say if yours has been modified or if FR finally made the adjustment to the manufacturing process, as long as it works you are in good shape!! I haven't had any problems with mine since the repairs last May. You are also correct about the occasional shot of lubricant to keep everything sliding.
Hope you are getting to enjoy your unit...

Hi Blue 283

Thanks for your reply. We have used our new Georgetown for several short trips, and will be heading south for a couple of months in February (Can't wait to get to the warm weather). I really like the floorplan. It is very open and roomy for a 30' coach. It is interesting that the Holiday Rambler Vacationer 30 SFS is the same layout.

I notice in an earlier post of yours that you said the factory had added the plastic material wedge for the slide to ride up on. What was there before this was added?

Initially the wedge had a 2" taper, and was later changed to a 4" taper (per the FR warranty folks). I never measured it, I just took their word for it... as long as my slide keeps working I'm happy!!
Glad you like the floorplan, it works well for me too, although the corner shower would have been nice!!!

FR communication

My 300 s is at Elkert and getting status information is not happening . John Armstrong has been the point of contact. I am adding Dan Evans to the e-mail distribution. Is there anyone else that could be included, including the shop supervisor to generate a response. The MH was scheduled to go in late Oct, copy of 4 page warranty needs sent Nov 7, MH picked up Dec 15 and no status since then

Send a message via Skype™ to Falcon35
I sent an email to John Armstrong on the evening of the Jan. 10 had a reply before 9AM on the 11th asking for the vin # and my phone # and he called back before noon that day. I have set up an appointment to have some things looked after in April in Elkhart on our way home from TX. There are number of things that the dealer did not have the will to fix.
I had the same kind of response from Mike Burns regarding paying for wheel alinement.

I got a voice mail response from Armstrong and from the sound of it Forrest River is doing a very comprehensive job of fixing the issue with long term solution.
