Robert (rlev), I'm curious to know if you ever had any feedback from Garmin as to how their GPS missed that low clearance. Thanks.

Low clearance with Garmin DEZL

I found out that they don't have that many low clearance point in the database of the Garmin DEZL for Canada. Even in the USA, the list is rather incomplete. On a recent trip without my FW in Vermont, I could see a few low clearance that did not came out on the DEZL. I bought a one year subscription from http://www.lowclearances.com/
It is inexpensive and it does a good job. Not for Canada but I will live with that for the moment. From now on, everytime I see a low clearance in Canada, I add it to the database I bought from Low clearance and who knows, maybe some day I will post it at the POI factory. hope that helps

We have had frame issues with our 2012 Sanibel 3500. We have been dealing with Roger at Prime Time also for the past 18 months. We noticed our problem on our first trip. After 6 weeks at our dealers for repairs we towed it from Virginia to Florida. Half way there the pieces started coming off and all the screws on the bedroom slide we're falling off. Of course we called roger who assured us he would have someone come to our site in Florida to look at it. The next day he said he couldn't make that happen and told us to take it to the dealer when we got home. We explained the severity of the issue and sent pics. We felt it was too extensive for the dealer to handle and asked them to come and get it and take it to Indiana for repairs. ( of course we asked for a replacement unit since this was the second break but they refused). They also refused to send someone to get it so we had to drive it ourselves to Indiana in February! They had our unit for 3 days and assured us that there was no way it could possible break again. They added more metal supports etc etc. said they have done this repair many times and never had one break again. We'll guess what? Next trip out it broke again. This was the final straw for us. We asked again for a replacement unit but roger said that's not happen and told us to take it the dealer for an assessment . We'll we did that. Our dealer told them they needed to get us a new unit. It can't be fixed. Prime time refuses to replace it or extend the warranty. They will only attempt to fix it again in Indiana. We considered fixing it and trading it in and just cutting our losses but we have had 5 dealers refuse to take it as a trade. Even our dealer told prime time the only way they would take this unit is if they fix it and give them a new 2 year warranty. So out of extreme frustration we have had to get an attorney and are filling a law suit.

We had the same problem when we hooked up and put the weight on the tongue of the camper we had wall separation on the bedroom slide side. The aluminum wall stud welds broke. I am going to upload the pics

Sanibel 3600

I purchased a Sanibel 3600 in August 2013 and we noticed this flexing problem a few months later. We took the RV to our dealer (Millican RV, Cullman, AL) and they contacted Prime. After a discussion with Prime, they said they would have to pick up the RV and take it back to their factory in Indiana. The earliest they could schedule the work was mid-January. This was late October and Prime said we could still use the RV but we decided to postpone our trip to Florida until the work was done so hopefully our RV will be returned this month. We like this RV but had concerns about some issues. To date we had to replace both doors (interior and exterior) and one of the air conditioners. There was also a lot of rust on the exterior bottom and inside some of the compartments???? Kind of wonder what is happening in the areas I cannot see?

dgonzo I am sorry you are having the issues with your 3600. We also loved our Rv! That is why this is so hard for us to have to replace it. Ours was repaired twice and broke a third time. We had small issues with ours such as The heater vent in the bedroom making a terrible popping sound when we stepped on the bedroom floor, cable wire in wall not connected properly, two of the light over the kitchen sink had the rods come apart, cabinets opening in route, sofa bed mattress had a leak and the sofa bed was tilted when pulled out for the bed, the recliner keeps locking up when rocked, rear stabilizer motor had to be replaced. But we are not new to rving so we didn't worry about the small stuff but the frame flexing that's serious to us. We were told by prime time that only the people who tow their vehicles a lot have this problem. If you tow it 500 miles and park it for 6 months you won't have a problem. Well that's not we what we bought ours for. The rust under your unit could be from when it was driven from the factory to your dealer . We never had any rust under ours until we got back from the repairs in Indiana in February . It came from the stuff they put on the roads for the snow. We had it under our tow vehicle too. The hubby is not happy! You may have more rust if it is there now for repairs. We also have had to give up our Florida trip. We were to leave on the 11th for 8 weeks now we are stuck in the cold.

I just picked my '12 3500 Sanibel up from the dealer today after it was returned from the PT site in Indiana after they repaired my frame issues. Have to say that Dan Collins & Kent Roberts of PT and Ron Green of Recreation Specialties were a pleasure to work with and very accommodating.
