Garage Bed

A lot of the XLR's come with a garage bed, but mine didn't.

So I ordered from the factory and got to work. Had a few missing parts, but the install was really not that hard.

OG, Your had experience should serve to remind us how easy it is to have an awning torn off... Hope repairs work well.

Nice to see you have you bed installed Steve!

So finally found the problem with our TV's not working. The antenna is junk. Contacted some local dealers who sell FR and got the response you didn't buy it here so we either won't work on it or we don't know when we can get to it. When I bought this camper I had to go out of state because no one local carried a toy hauler and wouldn't work with us. Contacted FR to see if they could help us find someone local to do the work or just send us a replacement antenna and we'll install ourselves. Been a week and still waiting for a response from FR. Have been pretty frustrated so far with trying to get warranty work done. Don't want to haul it 3-5 hours away one way for work. We were told when we bought it we could take to any FR dealer for work. Unfortunately we have found out that is not true.

We had one of those (EZ-UPs) VISIT during a Storm! People think they are going to STAY (Without Putting the Corner stakes in as well as Rope supports on the corners as well)! EZ-UP Tents are the same way,Stake them Down,Keep them on YOUR Campsite! Youroo!!

Hey where do you live and where did you buy from. I have had same issue, but I did find a local dealer that will work on it if need be.

I'd say if your near saint louis, saintlouisRv would work on it. Best bet have your dealer send you a new one

I'm trying to respond to #293 (mgmalm). This is the antenna on thousands upon thousands of units. The amplifier / switch is as well. What trouble you are having isn't inherent to the product, why do you feel its junk? I'm trying to remember but was your problem LED lighting interfering with your TV?

Could it be as simple as a bad coax end? Or even a bad amp?

If you have your selling dealer open a ticket for repairs, they should help find someone who will work in it close to you.

A warranty repair has to be started with the selling dealer.

Also contact the FR warranty person for your model; he or she will help. She certainly did for me! There is a contact list posted in this forum; its in my computer but I have no internet. My contact is Diane Daly (XLR)

I also have had to find a shop on my own one time. I also bought out of state (RV Wholesalers ) and they have done okay by me.

No. We didn't have any interference. One day all the TVs are working and the next time you can't pick up any channels. We tried everything and took everything apart in the storage area and still couldn't get them to work. Finally disconnected the antenna and hooked up good old rabbit ears and everything worked. Now if I can just get FR to send me a new antenna I'll be up and running again.
