Glad it all worked out this time for you.

This also happened to us. Every time we stopped for fuel, I would crank up the spare. Took it in to fix the slides and the spare fell off in the dealer's lot! They installed a new frame under the trailer, but it didn't hold and the spare came off at a rest stop. We were lucky not to lose it on the road, but fellow travelers were even luckier that we didn't lose it on the road. Could have been a very bad thing....

Hey Great HA. I just went out and looked at the spare tire it is still up against the bracket and tight. You might try down loading the Lipert master manual for Lipert parts it describes how to adjust your slides and how to operate them manually in a emergency. I have not had any trouble with the slides yet but We Keep coming up with little things like the shower surround being cracked in two places and the faucet handle fixture in the shower is on up side down. We looked at a lot of trailers before we bought and it does seem like there is no Quality control in the RV industry. We will put the warranty to the test. They need to replace the rubber roof one refrigerator door and the shower surround. I am taking it in to the dealer this weekend and they will probably have it all winter.

What is wrong with your rubber roof??? When I got mine home I went up on our roof to look at it and it was stained and real dirty so I cleaned it. I'm not to impressed with the way our white rubber roof looks with the stains after cleaning it either. I went ahead and put UV protectant on it after I cleaned it also. I guess a stained white roof won't hurt anything but I was still disappointed with the looks of it being so stained. Sorry to hear about your shower, I had to put some silicone around the glass shower incloser on ours I guess the factory forgot to seal it.
like you said there is a lack of quality control at the factory. I have fixed alot of small things they had over looked.
Oh with the sticking windows and sticking roof vents. Mine were sticking also I got them opened and applied some of the stuff for the slide out seals to the window seals and roof vent seals and no more sticking issues. I'm sure you could use some armore all on them also to keep the seals from sticking. I had ordered a gallon of 303 Airospace protectant and just got it in the mail yesturday so I'll be using that stuff on our rig and see how it does. I'm going to put it on the decals also. Took me 3 days to wax this thing, what a task. LOL
I still like my Palomino and I have all the issues with it pretty much taken care of I think anyway. Yesturday I sealed all the way around the underbelly of the rig. Took 4 tubes of black silicone. I do want to take the panel off the inside of the storage compartment and see if any insulating or sealing is needed in there. I don't like how cold it was in the storage compartment this summer like there was an A/C vent blowing in there keeping it cold.
I don't mind tinkering with it though I gives me something to play with and make it better. Let me know how the repairs to your rig go.

my roof has bubbles in it where the membrane did not stick to the sub roof. I know that Forest River says that some bubbles are ordinary but it looks like the whole right side of the roof did not stick along the edge of the trailer with smaller bubbles out towards the middle of the roof. The Dealer looked at it and did not argue with us at all. we took it up to the Dealer to day and they took pictures of every thing we had on our list and told us not to worry and that things would be fixed.
