6 week old 2013 sun seeker in shop for the third week!!!!
We bought a 2013 Forest River Sunseeker 6 weeks ago on October 1. One of our slides stopped extending completely on October 20 while we were out on a trip. This slide not moving kept the bed from moving away from the cabinets containing all of our clothes!!!! We had to remove the mattress whenever any of the 5 members of our family wanted to get shoes, clothes, or coats!!!!! We continued to travel with this problem, but it was annoying. We finally came off the road for a 10 day period and took it to be serviced on November 5. A gear is broken in the slide. It is covered by warranty, but the dealership says they can't get Forest River to send them the part. Today is November 20. I spent $120 on a reservation that was booked in advance and not refundable within 5 days of arrival. I was assured I would have my coach back for this trip. Today we called to check in and the dealership is saying the first of December at a guess, but it could be longer. I have made my first payment while it sits in the shop! We have a trip we were planning this weekend. We won't be doing that either. We bought it for tailgating and deer hunting. Both of those seasons are rushing past while it sits in the shop.
I think we made a huge mistake. I am researching lemon laws on motor homes in Mississippi, but I wonder if anyone else has had dealings with Forest River and what they suggest I do. I am sick because we researched and thought we made an educated, wise purchase... Advice is welcome...
