New to forum. Have a 2006 Cardinal 31LE with many problems, all which have been resolved under warranty. To list a few; Loose support in the roof which was fixed, every water pipe joint leaked which I tightened, bad propane regulator which was removed, and one bubble in the fiberglass siding , each side, which took repair at Elkart (we live in Wyoming) Here is the latest!
We spent the winter on South Padre Island TX; three months with the LR slider extended. When returning home, the hydraulic cylinder for the LR was leaking fluid. Close inspection revealed the slide cylinder shaft was completety corroded which caused the cylinder seal to leak. The unit is made by Lippert Corporation. After communication with dealer. FR, and Lippert, I am to believe that no one knows what is going on! Lippert says they have a five year warranty on the cylinder, But it is stated in their operating manual the shaft should be sprayed with silicone every seven days if extended in normal conditions or three days if exposed to salt conditions. Therefore they will not honor the warranty.
I do not have their manual, my dealer does not have their manual. and I think FR doesn't know anything about the entire problem. Anyone have an idea.
