I had to travel almost 300 miles but my DW and I got the tt we wanted at a much better deal. I have had 8 trailers and spent a lot of money with the local dealer but never again. I had to make 1 trip back to TJ after purchase to have a few warranty issues handled and will make 1 more in spring to have a few more handled before warranty is up. Is your recall about the electrical plug issue? I just had this on mine. I explained my predicament to a FR rep about my local dealer not wanting to do it and having to drive almost 300 miles to TJ for a 30 minute repair. She was kind enough to send me the instructions and I did it myself. Took about 30 minutes and a $2 part from Home Depot. If you have a little handyman in you and a few basic tools you can probably do it also. Let me know if I can be of some help.
Spoke to FR and they said my vin wasn't on the recall list...I was going to check the outlet myself to feel safe...Dodds in Yorktown was very nice and said if FR confirmed mine was recalled they would work me in...

The part I got from Home Depot fits over the wire and in to that 1/2 inch hole to support the wire and keep it from pulling out. I would send a picture if I could figure out how to attach it.
how about a part number on the package???

On a side note for you Va. guys. Have you tried RV Outlet? I've bought two toy haulers there and I know they carry XLRs. They stay busy in the service dept. but maybe they could still help you with problems.

Just curious.

Yep.. I'm not nearly as tall... 5'10" but a stocky 240. I feel your pain. I fixed the house shower issue at our house.


I turned this...

Into this... 4ft wide by 7ft long with double heads. Problem solved! I wish I could do this to the TH but I think it would eat up the whole garage.

Wow! OG... That's a shower. I need to upgrade mine... Let's call it a mod but don't tell the wife, she'll expect it done in two days. I told her I will take care of it... don't have to remind me every 6 months!

Thanks guys.. We bought a foreclosure and pretty much had to do a whole house gut. Probably should have built our own. It's been a work in progress.
