Update. It's not out of the body shop yet. Apparently, a few more things to do. Anticipated out of body shop this Wednesday, then the RV dealer will do some small repairs I needed. So, I'm anticipating February 2 at this point. (Part of this date estimation is the fact that I have to coordinate renting a U-Haul and stuff to get me up there. I don't tow a car.)

I'm glad that I don't have full body paint. Someone on another thread pointed out the issues of full body paint. One of my previous Forest River's had full body paint, looked nice, but now I see a good reason not to get that option again.

My RV is back from the body shop. I am having some other things done. I forgot to ask how the crack repair looks.

Depending on how fast they get my other things done, I'll either have it back Friday or Monday. I would prefer Monday.

RV Done! I'm going to pick it up on Friday. I'm so thankful to Forest Rive for paying for this repair (although there were some other "minor" issues I had fixed that I'm paying for.....)

Not all RV manufacturers are as customer focused as FR.

Got it back! The crack repair looks great! Can't even tell.

I do have some complaints, though.

1. My coach battery was completely dead when I picked it up.
2. I had a full propane tank, it was down 1/8 when I picked it up.
3. My JACK antenna was turned ON, I had turned it off when I left it.

Ok, my theories. I had the RV winterized before the body shop work was done. So, there should not have been any reason to use my propane.

I'm guessing the body shop may have run my furnace, which would explain propane usage and coach battery. It did get a little cold in the area where I left it. There was no need to, I had it winterized, unless they needed to run the furnace for the repair job on the stress crack.

I'm also guessing the body shop may have tried to watch my TV. Which would explain my JACK being turned on, and coach battery down.

I'm not happy about this part........

But the RV dealer let me plug in and charge up my battery before I left.
