From what I gather, all that weight on a relatively small slide-out may be causing the slide-out rams to "crown" or bend as the slide-out is being opened...resulting in a considerable mis-aligment and tearing into the flooring!!
Currently working with my dealership to rectify this situation. Some reinforcing and extra welding around the rams is likely needed?

I have an issue with my 2014 Sanibel 3551. Dealer has worked on it 4 times and replaced bottom seal 3 times and it needs another one. I told my dealer that i want to bring it in after camping season and I want to have prime time to be there and he said that could be arraigned. Don't worry Prime Time will get an ear full from me. I paid alot of money for this camper to put up with this problem. Prime Time must not have a Quality Control person. I will keep you informed what happens at the end of November.

Kitchen slide

My slide isn't tearing the lino anymore after repairs made by the dealer. But my problem now is the under side of slide. My seal is torn and the bottom of slide is being rubbed to death. I'm glad this is warranty work.

Exclamation i feel your PAIN

i feel your pain we ordered a 2014 pt crusader 295 rlt in september 2013 and took delivery in feburary 2014 . on the 3rd trip the off door slied the on with the dining table and theater seating ripped rear heat register out of the floor and damaged the center register. took it to the dealer they worked on it for weeks and could not get it right. lippert finaly sent their super tech out and he was unable to do any better. long story short they finally came and took it back to the factory . it was picked up november the 1st 2014 and we were told by roger at pt it would be sometime in december before we got it back it was actually march 2015 before it got back .it came back in worse shape than when it left they relocated the heat registers so the slides could not reach them in the process they scratched every molding around the rear slides scratched the celing of the slide over the dining table about 6 inches long THEIR REPLY WAS WELL IT IS JUST A CAMPER AFTER ALL!!. the bottom of the slide was also damaged from the registers with large chuncks out of it and did nothing to repair it. they said it should not be an issue. now the slide is tearing the carpet at the rear of the coach and marking the floor at the front. to their defense they did give us a one year warranty on the slide repair.have not had the hart to call the dealer to scedule an appointment. all i know is it will not go back to the factory again.

ALL I CAN SAY IS GOOD LUCK!!

Thanks I'm not getting a warm fuzzy feeling about this. We are due into Prime Time on Nov 2nd. They have had things added to the work order in July. We have gone from 5 days to three weeks & spoken to like its our fault other problems have cropped up. Now we are looking at 3 weeks. We are full timers this was explained in the beginning & PT said they would cover accommodation. Now that's on a daily basis. We will work with anybody within reason. Not our fault any of this. Now we are wondering how we will be treated when we get there. This trailer is advertised for full timers. So why the surprise when you actually say you are. Not looking forward to how much is it going to cost us on a year old trailer

We have a Crusader 295rst that we purchased this past June. Our kitchen slid is also doing some damage to the linoleum and a little slit. We have an appointment to take to dealership and fix a few minor problems and the slide.

Have a 2013 Sanibel 3400 with exactly the same Kitchen slide out problems. First time it happened, had to have a mobil service tech get it realigned enough to get back home. Two camping trips later the same banging,jerking started as the slide was being extended. Our Sanibel has been at the dealership three months now and the techs are finally thinking they are going to have to replace the rails on the slide out. Gears torn up, all kinds of problems and WE are expected to pay for the labor because of the faulty design. Very, very unhappy campers!!!

Have you tried contacting someone at Forrest River. This seems to be a problem they are well aware of. Elkhart did an amazing job on our problems. We were still under,guarantee. Ours maybe came to head quite quickly as we are full timers. You can but try & see,what happens. Good Luck

Raneil, our problem was covered by warranty, just barely. Fortunately I had a contact at Forest River and I called him when this happened as we were in Montana on vacation. When we got back we brought it in to our dealer around the end of September for repairs and we got it back about a week ago. They had to replace the slide gears, both ram gears, main rail along with all of the brackets and screws holding everything together. Lippert makes the slide for FR so parts had to be ordered from them etc.
Some of the management team from Prime Time came down and inspected our unit and another one with the same problem. It seems like those kitchen slides are just too heavy when the stove and refrigerator are added to them. Our camper is a 2014 and it's been ours for just over two years, and in that time period it has been at the dealers for some type of repair for 10 months.
