Great to know that fix! Thanks for sharing!! I'll file that away as I have the same mechanism in my recline (I think) and although its working today, well its an RV. Nothing that works today is likely to tomorrow.
I tell everyone, that unless you are prepared to be a DIYer, or have a fool idiot friend who keeps saying sure I'll come fix that it sounds like fun... wait that's me.
At any rate, you need to have the ability to be an inventor, engineer and handyman to buy these low end RVs. And make no mistake, the XLR is a low end RV. You get lots of features for the money, and they do that by buying cheaper made components and lacking in quality control. So I fix stuff. I have a warranty and consider it the "for big expensive stuff only" because it will cost me more in gas, time and aggravation to get the cabinet door hinge fixed than just do it myself. I know this going into it and prefer to have the features that the low end Forest River stuff gives me over a Prevost rig with bare walls and selling my wife into slavery to pay for it. (I asked... she said no, then she said something about Christian Grey and said maybe...)
If you've got a dealer who will take of things quickly and without you jumping through hoops and is close by, then by all means go for it. Good for you. You lucky dog! But every time I hear of one like that I go research them and see reports of the same ole same ole treatment for someone else. It seems your mileage may vary.
