As for your rear slide not working, I had the same problem 9 months after I bought mine. Apparently a "shear pin" broke. In my case, I could move the slide out about six inches and that was all the farther it would go. Fortunately, it happened with the slide already in, not out. Got it fixed under warranty, it was a 30 minute fix.
Ours goes out about 12" and gets stuck. Luckily it was in for us as well.

In case B Clemons reads this thread, KEEP THE COMPUTER DESK OPTION in case I want to trade again! I LOVE THE COMPUTER DESK! And KEEP THE FOLD DOWN part on the desk, too, because once I get my Laptop, my phone, my router for my phone, there isn't much room left on the desk..... My printer has to go on the floor!

2013 3010ds... 6k miles.

I bought this unit brand new 2 years ago next week. Just came back from 2k mile trip from Ohio to Fort Desoto park in Florida (absolutely beautiful if you get the chance). The wind was a beast through the mountains of West Virginia, but after we flew through charleston it was a one handed kicked back ride the rest of the way. Set the cruise at 70 to 75mph and still got 10mpg (The Ford V10 is a beast).

I too have a issue with the coach door with a tiny bit of light at the very bottom corner.

I too have had a issue with the rear bedroom slide stopping after about 6 or 8 inches. It was the bumper stop screw that was loose allowing the bumper stop to become cocked and binding the slide. A screwdriver fixed that.

Another issue that I have is with the Audio Visual system. Long ago in 2013 AV systems were unheard of in a RV.... Really!! Composite Video!!.... I know that AV systems are not on the top of the priority list for FR as they said the are more focused on the camping experience. Again... Really!!... Camping is a pup tent in the woods with granola as your main course for dinner. We buy these comfortable apartments on wheels to get away and enjoy the scenery but still have the comforts of home. Roughing it is not being able to dial in the HD signal on the satellite dish and settling for standard def.

The other thing is the light fixtures from the 90's. That is my next upgrade... Speaking of the light fixtures... The large rear illuminated cubbies are the best storage feature. You can really cram a lot of gear in there.

Wife hates the plastic bathroom faucet. Always water on the counter because of the round knobs. Another upgrade coming in the future.

Oh... How about the black rubberized entry steps. My wife always complains about them being dirty. They can get filthy just by looking at them.

All in all... After these petty little issues... We love our 3010. The great counter space, comfy bed and loads of storage. It still feels like I just drove it off the lot. Smells like new (have to light a candle though when the Wife makes the greek salad. Loves me some garlic).

We have nicknamed it Artimus and plan on him being around for years to come.

2014 3050
Mine must have been built on a Friday ( no offense FR )
Upon delivery, porch light switch not working, stove igniter wire arc'd, a few paint scratches on top ( dealers fault )
6 mos- Battery isolator switch/ components replaced, awning LED light strip warped, and awning fabric stitching loosened.
12 mos- Outside forward slide trim pulled away from body. Aggravated with original dealer 3 hrs away I switched to different FR dealer and they have completed all repairs and I am 100% happy now

Just because it's new doesn't mean there's not going to be any problems. FR sometimes changes vendors and parts when too many warranty issues are found. Pretty sure I had some of those issues.

Very happy with my 3050 now

2015 3050s

1500 miles and no major problems, except badly needed realignment. Drives much better now after alignment.

1. Removed mattress and laid carpet above front seats.
2. Lowered TV 6' and cut mount arm into 3 pieces and hinged pieces so
arm articulated around against slide.
3. Mounted 20 x 20 x 20 freezer above passenger seat.
4. Replaced kitchen faucet with tall pull-out sprayer.
5. Reversed plywood on bed so hinge is 2' from slide wall and put air
assist cylinders so 3/4 of bed top lifts and stays up.
6. Made 3' x 3' additional storage box under bed.
7. Replaced clothes racks with new wood rods and made shelves above rods.
8. Installed valve around water filter so fresh tank can be filled without
using water hose.

Really like the coach now.

So far so good!

Just purchased 2012 3008W Windjammer.weekend after Christmas. 2nd owners.. Had it out 3 times so far and very pleased..

Purchased the Anderson levelers last week, we'll try them in a couple weeks.

We looked over a year all over Nor Cal. for the right floor plan and size. We were very picky on floor plan. We are planning for retirement in a few years so bought a little larger and newer.

Can't wait for our next outing!
