Thanks everyone for your feedback on the Forest River quality. It is obvious that some have problems while others do not. It seems to boil down to how well the dealer solves the issues. My wife and I have settled on and ordered a 2015 Forester 2651S. I look forward to many miles ahead of us and hopefully running across some of you on the road.
Thanks again.

I have been driving/using my 3121 for more than 2 years to date. I am very happy with my rig, I have been in 5 states and no major problems whatsoever. I love my Forest River!

On my first trip to Id and Wy. Didn't need the furnace in central Ca, but mornings here are nippy! When I turn it on the air conditioner blows cold air out or ceiling vents and heater vent blow hot air. Is this the way it is supposed to be? Also, what is the difference between "furnace" and "heat pump"? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

The heat pump acts like an AC in reverse. It puts heat in by taking cold out.
Your heat pump position runs the AC for heat and the furnace position uses propane for heat.

The heat pump is more efficient when the out side temp is not very cold. In the 30's it can't handle heating as well. When the heat pump does not give you what you need, then switch to furnace. They both should not be running at the same time.

If you have your fan set on "auto" you should not be getting cold air from the AC when the furnace is selected.

Thank you so much! Problem solved. The only other problem I've had is the shower latch broke so door opens when cornering. I'm sure easy dealer fix just have to find one in Boise! Thanks again,Mike.

Are you sure the latch is broken? They can pop off easily and usually just snap back on.

Sorry I didn't get back sooner. Yep- the part on the door is missing, and a funny looking thing is on the frame. Camping world said they have to order it, but the warranty guy hasn't called back yet. Any ideas on a temp fix? Don't want the shower door to get broken slamming on corners. Thanks. Yorkgng

I had two of these break in the first six months so I gave up. I had mounted a towel bar on the wall high above the toilet, so I took a small bungee cord and put it on the bar and the top of the door--holding the door open during travel. It works great. Others have put something like a dowel rod in the bottom track of the door in the open position to hold it open during travel.

You can call FR directly and they will send you a new latch under warranty--but like I said, my replacement one also broke on bumpy roads.
