Mountainman, was it evident the the underlying frame was cracked? I'm curious if the corner (beneath the fiberglass) had evidence of something a little deeper failed.
I'm imagining the opening in the sidewall is welded frame. The crack in the fiberglass is a result of a crack in the frame (as ATVer mentioned).

They told me that was a pretty good sized crack under the fiberglass. The outer crack was just a symptom of the bigger problem. I wouldn't have even looked there except for this forum. Glad i caught it under the factory warranty.

Good information. Hopefully Brian can add some input to this.

Thanks!

Is the 3170 model the only one with this issue?

The Sunseeker sister Forester 3171 is prone as well.

There are 3 more 3170's waiting for repair at this service center. They don't even sell Sunseekers.
