No list. They can look things up in an area, but I am told there is no list.

As for Camping World, some of them are certainly possibilities. I signed a store last year and they had a great year with our stuff so now every store is asking for the line. We went from about 1 store to 20 in less than 6 months. I'm guessing if they carry any Forest River lines they should be able to do warranty work.

We purchased a 2013 3010DS in 2012. Took delivery in October 2012 and have been very pleased with the unit. After 1 year of ownership we have only one warrenty issue. We took the side by side refridgerator option and it started to not work on propane, it is currently in the shop being checked. Other than that only minor issues; screen door rattled I fixed that by caulking the bottom section of the door thanks to the advice on this forum, the door was squeeking that was loose screws, the post of the dinet table squeeks when driving (need to fix that still) and the water line to the ice maker popped off because the installer used the wrong fitting that was an easy fix.

Own 2012 Sunseeker 30103. Love it overall. Had one problem with shore power that turned out to be the hookup's problem when I plugged into it - without protection. Warranty fixed the parts blown and now I have the best electrical protect I could find. Highly recommended. Only other problem experienced is the onboard GPS. I don't like it.

I've had issues with each Sunseeker I owned, but always got them taken care of, just went to the closest dealer where ever I was at, and usually got them fixed. The only major issue I had was on a previous Sunseeker I had a frig go poof during the first year, took a week to get a new one, work was done at a dealer in a small town. Other than that, it's been a leak here, a leak there.....

Current Sunseeker 3170 I've had:

Water leak in City Water connection, mobile RV dealer ascertained it was a factory defect, it got fixed free.

Shear pin in slideout broke. Slideout wouldn't go out, I panicked that this would be a BIGGIE, dealer in Montana fixed it in an hour, covered under warranty...

And a couple minor other things, too.

If it's summer, you might have problems getting in to get fixed, as RV dealers are busy. But if it's winter and you are in the North, RV dealers are happy to get the business.

Hello, let me make this forum come back to life. We just picked up our 2014 Sunseeker 2900 in October and have been able to use it on 3 occasions before packing it up for the 6 month Buffalo winter. We have not found any issues with it yet, probably because we are still learning how to use it.

We have a 2013 Sunseeker. Nothing major but we found the radio/gps system to be buggy. Contacted the mfg for the radio and they sent me a firmware upgrade chip that fixed the problem.
