Forest River seemed to graciously cover the repair on the front slide even though they claim it's just cosmetic, but a lot of us had it. I'm not so sure they will cover the rear slide especially when I had the front slide repaired. It's a $3,000 repair (or it was both times I had the front slide repaired....)

I'm just praying the silicone will hold it. I didn't drill the hole. I don't want to go through that again, but I do want to keep this unit for awhile because I love the 3170.

Good day

Well while doing my spring checkup, I found a crack on the edge of my frame on the front slide out. I will post pictures.
Also worst , a major crack underneath the unit just aft of the rear wheels that goes across the whole floor.
I have a 3170DS 2014. I will post picture
Now the million dollar question , how to get all this fixed!

Regard

Yvon

Yes, I do level before running slides out. BUt my back slide, I have been told is possible "off" by one track. It works... but doesn't go in all the way. I think it's from when I tried to pull the slide in and forgot I had a push broom leaning up against the slide... The corner is bent.....

From my two experiences......

See if you can get a "Dedicated" staff to fix the crack. The first time, they were "fitting it in when they could" and it took a month, but I also had some other repairs done at MY cost while it was in the shop.

The second time, I got a "dedicated" staff on it (body shop) and it took only a week. I think Forest River covered it, as I didn't have to pay and the shop said they weren't going to eat it because they felt Forest River didn't give them good direction the FIRST time......

As for my crack on the LONG slide, it's still filled with bonding agent, and doing ok...... I'm leaving it as is... for now.
