The door lock problems are on almost ALL brands of RV's NOT just FR. The maker of the locks messed up big time. FR will take care of all your problems. I had a new (from the factory mobile home) and had issues with it, new stick built homes have issues. I have seen some with the water lines crossed. Turn on the cold get hot, hot gets you cold. Electrical plugs not wired. It happens to alot of things. But when it happens to you it is maddening. Sorry for the problems.

Maybe I could freeze them and throw the Lemons at the RV and get the damn door open
I would do that but I cant get to the freezer either..... our 5er came with a allen attach to run the slide motors in but the manufacture forgot to install the hole for me to access, the pump went inop and I did not have a drill to open a hole on the side of the motor (it was about 1/2 inch from a wall)
We have the same model. The rear slide can be manually wound in with the crank handle (located in the basement), accessing the end of the shaft end by going between the top and next to top step (at the rear door) towards the slide under the floor.
5th wheels have the ability to operate manually. Look for the manual crank hole. Some where around the slider shirt should have a 1" hole. My front lift once jammed, yea I was connected to the truck. The 1" hole was behind the LP tank and covered by black tape (good job on that part). After working it back and forth a couple of time I get it to work. Additionally, the manufactures use in-line blade fuses (your could be blown) mine had blown several times. Kept a box of them fuses handy until I installed fuse release relays. No problems with sliders so far.

Thanks to all for all the info. Got the slide in with the crank handle, still can't get the door open, but at least it can go to the dealer now.......and I found number 11 for the dealer repair......the front right wheel camber is tilted in and the tire is worn off on the inside. Probably the source of the squealing wheel bearing noise.
I know I'll get through this and it's just a material thing.....but frustrating!
