Emptypockets: our new 1809s is going back to the factory for damages caused by a water leak inside the wall behind the door. It has caused quite a lot of damages. A new wall or a new replacement I hope will come back to us in a few month or more. What a pain on a brand new trailer that we used only a week end.

capucine, That is terrible trust they will do a good job for you & get it back to you by spring. Will they do anything about the poor finish work on the interior where the staples look so awful?

Capucine, is your dealer "Travel Mor" helping you with this repair and made arrangements with Forest River for pick up?

empty pocket: I replaced all the flat mouldings all over the trailer and yes there is no staples at all on these moulding. It looks so good now and I even installed some under the cabinets to cover the gaps. It took me one hour to do the work and what a difference. I also installed a moulding between the tub enclosure and the sink cabinet that I sent you the picture. My next project is to install a small valance over the venitian blind in the kithen over the sink. The valance fabric will match the other valances on the curtains. Later on if I have the money to spare I will install the optional mag wheels on it. I like the good look on this trailer and I can make it even better.

Glad to here someone has had good luck With Greg at FR. I have called several times and emailed twice with pictures to Greg and i have not heard a word from him or anyone else at FR.

It seems if the AC unit was not bolted in properly and he knew about it,there is a quality control issue there.

I'm new here as well. How did you notice the leaks. Staining, puddles???

There was a small amount of water on the floor directly under the AC unit. Thankfully the flooring is not carpet!

Thanks. My thoughts exactly. I have some pictures to upload to show my concerns about the seam between the roof and front/rear panel joint . I'll try to get that up later today.
