So now the rear slide stopped working and I have had to rent a car and possibly cancel my 4th of July plans.
On top of a leak from under the shower.
Sure is heart breaking.
Do you think FR has a loaner or would pay for my rental car?

Don't hold your breath on that one! We're heading home now. Just hope she stays together in one piece. Our genset fuel went out AGAIN earlier today. Then, on the interstate I looked in my mirror and saw the water heater hanging out about to fall to ground. I had to laugh. I did stop and duct tape it but really at this point I would rather take it back to the dealer when we get home with a giant hole in it. But, since I know that won't be warrantied either, I better try to keep it! At least the folks at Onan don't give any problems fixing what they made.

We have been camping for 21 nights on this trip, and many people ask about my new Motorhome. After they take a look at the issues for themselves, and hear about my experiences, they wouldn't even consider a FR product.

4Gcampers -

How can the water heater be hanging out. Aren't they inside a kitchen cupboard on the floor. I would think you'd have a hole in the floor and storage bottom for it to be hanging out. Unless you're talking about the access panel on the side but don't think a 6 gallon water heater could come out that size of hole either.

Lol. Paul, you are correct. I don't think the entire unit could come out, but who knows! The outer access panel is hanging off with the guts from the igniter assembly. I turned off the gas supply in case the valve is damaged and taped in place. Moved all the food from the fridge to a cooler. Three more says until we're home..yay!

The black tank cleanout stopped working
A major decor flaw in the kitchen table
Switchbox doesnt offer antenna

The finish is great...nice cabinet work, tight corners, good transitions - but the build seems sloppy. Lots of excess sealant and the problems above.

Am I picky or am I entitled to disappointment?
1. sounds like you're on it
2. reset, or contact Magnadyne for update.
3. if its just a little, could be leaking at the corners. Lots of water could be fitting leak...more than likely its the corners.
4. was it working before?
5. picture?
6. Switchbox doesn't offer antenna??? not sure what that means.

For those watching this I still do not have my RV back. According to the dealer we are stuck between FR and the slide out manufacturer to get the parts we need.
Alreadt spent $300 on a rental car and missed our entire 4th of July plans due to the bickering.
I am certainly not impressed with FR putting their vendor in the mix.
We are supposed to leave for our family vacation this week....lets hope

We are without our new 3170DS due to our sofa slide not working - already canceled this weekends plans - supposedly the slide manufacturer will be sending parts and we will hopefully get it back sometime next week. We'll see.
