According though to RVGUY this was only an extra layer of protection and the wood is waterproof?
how do I know what kind of tape or floor I have on my 2670? he said there is three different kind of floors, what kind does my tracer have? Im just worried now about the longtivity of this camper. I don't want leaking issues down the road and my dealer im sure wont fix this issue if there is no issue to begin with.... but my luck would have it that it starts fraying this summer right after the warranty runs out
I have a 2013 Tracer 2670bhs. It has the tape wrapped around the bottom corners of the slide that the rollers rest on. Appears to mainly protect the edges of the supposedly waterproof plywood that is used. Hard to believe that if left unprotected they wouldn't absorb water, or if it isn't necessary why they would even put it on.
After one season of camping, the tape is no longer providing any protection. The bottom is wore from the rollers bearing on it, and edge of the tape at the corner is torn.
Appears that from the lack of PT posting any type of recommend fix in this thread and continuing to build them the same, they are trying to avoid the issue and deny there is a problem. Other than that we are very happy with the quality of it though.
I plan to do some type of modification myself in the next couple of weeks. Something to protect the edge that extends under the side trim and on the bottom past the rollers. But has to be wide enough on the bottom side to extend past the whole roller. Something rigid, not tape. Can anyone post a link to a product that would work?
