Welcome to the forum
Welcome to the F.R.O.G. forum. If Forest River says they will take it to the factory, by all means let them do the repairs!
There has been many satisfied people on the forum that sent their RV back to FOREST RIVER for repairs that the dealer could not handle.
I have to give a thumbs up to FOREST RIVER for their commitment to their customers and products. You will not be sorry about the return to the factory.
How did you get a 2009 unit brand new in 2012? That is what your post stated.
