Love the camper, hate the rain. Hopefully warranty can be extended, or better yet, just replace the camper due to all the leaks. And we all know that down the road there will be issues from the water that can't be seen yet. Keep you guys posted.

Let's hope they can get it fixed. We have seen some intermittent water around slides. We have driven through pouring rain for hours to find it dry as a bone, then had a brief shower and all carpet wet. I am worried the general slide design is going to be a long term problem in this way.

Keep in mind if your slideout is out during the rain and you bring it in afterwards any water on the slide roof is going to run down the front & back soaking the carpet this happens with any camper. I try to always tilt the camper forward to let water run off before hooking up and pulling out.

What do u mean by slide design? I think mine is the same I had on a previous camper. Can u explain it? Got word this week that it made it back to manufacture, but was not given any details by my dealer. Does anyone know who to contact at FR or coachman? Dealer has been not too helpful during this time.

Thought so too, but as always it does help to have direct name for somebody that another person may have dealt with before.

I only know the Mid Atlantic regional rep. They all seem very nice at the Indiana facility. Good Luck and please let use know what they did to fix your leaks. I picked mine up in the rain and my carpets were wet. But like I mentioned this is a common problem if your slides are brought in with water on them. And I am not a fan of slide out covers.
