Labor Day was the first run with the new braces. They worked exactly as planned.

Just saw this thread, but we noticed that while pulling our 2012 Silverback 29rk FW at highway speed, that the left shirt behind the most rear axle was flapping a bit more than what we thought was normal.

The dealer installed what he called a "j bar " reinforcement "kit" on both sides and that stopped the flapping - don't know if it is a FR supplied kit/fix or not, but the dealer knew of he problem as they had seen it before.

Ours were cracking on our Puma and a friend of ours used Fiberglass to reinforce the screw holes and surrounding area. Sturdier than when they were new. He did a great job.

Add me to the list. Both of mine are cracked at the screws and one is almost falling off. Poor design. Prime Time said nothing they can do because I am out of warranty.
Bought new ones from them through the dealer, so now I have to do what DF5.4 did and add the braces.

We bought a 14 closeout a couple of months ago and found one on our PDI the dealer was great and swapped it out for a new one before we left.

The skirt part number for a 325 res is #10F08496A, price 69.99 plus shipping. PT will not sell direct, can buy from any Forest River dealer, does not have to be a PT dealer. Just give them the VIN # of the RV. Using fiberglass on the back sounds like the way to go. Will try that next week.
