Boy I wish I could echo those sentiments!! We have a silverback 29 RE and have this issue with an opening to the outside near the front left landing leg. Have emailed back and forth several times to a warranty administrator (Justin Day), I have been very clear to them that I am not pursuing this as a warranty issue, but just want to know why its there?? I have received several replies which are completely unrealistic! example = It's there because Lippert says it's required to service the hydraulic landing leg every 5 to 7 days. Now you know that if you are a silverback owner it has no hydraulic landing legs!! This was the last reply.
I have now tried to contact a different person at the factory and have yet to receive a reply? Hoping for a reasonable answer and will post when received.
