This is a discussion forum, it says so at the top of the page. The original poster, Spenser Stewart is a vent and leave poster. No discussion going on here. Wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't own a FR product and works for another manufacturer. Just sayin'.

At least forest river is replacing for you. We presently own a keystone alpine. When it was brand new we had to fight with keystone to admit we had a problem with our fridge. They finally replaced one door. Still not happy.

Rich, I wanted to respond to let you know that you are not the only investor in a Cardinal 5th wheel experiencing problems with their Coach. We took delivery of a 2015 Cardinal 3850 on June 6th. Prior to accepting delivery we had to have the dealer fix some issues like the sagging underbelly. We then proceeded to go camping for an extended weekend and had problems with the oven not coming up to temperature and a hydraulic. So back to the dealer to be fixed and the G rated tires that we ordered installed. Our primary purpose for purchasing a new rig was to take it cross country for over 2 months. Well it all began with our levelers not working properly when we arrived in the UPI of Michigan. We contacted FR roadside assistance and after speaking with a technician we checked all the 12 volt connections. Though the battery was a little loose I found the 4 12 volt take-off posts in the battery compartment 3 of which were about to fall off. Had no additional problems with landing gear. We traveled from Cortez Co. to the Grand Canyon upon entering the coach we found the cornice over the island hanging by the light wires. Our next finding in Mesa Verde was the fresh water tank was out of the mounting causing the underbelly to fall. Roadside assistance came through with a local RV repair company who was able to spot weld the harness in place to keep the tank in place. An appointment was made in Carlsbad at a FR dealer to check and make sure we could finish the trip. FR dealer re-supported the underbelly and recommended the whole be replaced. Upon arriving home the bedroom slide decided it would no longer move in or out. Came to find when contact the factory, it was a known issue with the slides gear set. Well the coach is currently at the dealer with a list of 23 items which need addressing.
We told the factory rep that we would definitely consider a purchase back by the factory. Unfortunately, there is no LEMON law in Virginia.

This is a small sample compared to the amount of rvs out there. This is also a place people come to vent and ask for advice when having problems. If you go to other forums for other products you will find the same thing.


Life is a highway!!!!!

The issue is, an RV is a very high ticket item. For most, it is the second most expensive item besides a house people will buy. (well third if you count some college degrees) The success rate of good Rvs to lemons may be very very high but to the family that bought the lemon, that doesn't matter. When an RV goes into the lemon category it is a exception that it gets taken care of quickly if at all. Read through this forum as well as any RV forum and you will see that the RV manufacturers and dealers just don't accept responsibility for the occasional lemon. They and the dealer fight tooth and nail to NOT take this seriously and buy back the RV. If you get a bad RV you are just stuck with it plain and simple. It would be a huge step forward if all states had a lemon law that protected RVs as well as cars.

it's hard to take someone's rant seriously, if they post one time and then never show back up to answer the other members or add more background.

i'm always leary of one-time ranters, no matter what RV forum it is.
I have not posted again because I was told they would remove it. I still have water leaks, my desk top they just replaced needs replaced again as they damaged it during installation. My shower has more leaks now than it did when I brought it in to get fixed. If you had the problems the we have had I doubt you would be so glib about " a one time ranter" I have a lot of photos and repair orders you are welcome to look at if you think I'm just a ranter.

I know many of the people on here think I only posted to rant. I got an email from the admin that they would pull down ay negative post. I still after almost 1 year still have many problems. The shower I have had in twice to repair now leaks more than it did when I first brought it in. I have a water leak around the bedroom side. I was told when I took the unit in to get the desk top, table, convection oven, carpet and water damage to bathroom floor. That the warranty shop was not going to get into the bathroom floor that was a fight I would have to have with FR. People that make commits like I must not have a FR or I was just ranting really need to know what they are talking about before they say something and look like asses. I will provide RO's and photos to anyone whom doubts me. send me you email address mine is xwizardx21@msn.com.

Let me clear this up for everyone now. We do not pull posts because they are negative. We do encourage negative posts but we do not allow talk of lawyers or libelous talk. As long as you post truthful information in a respectful manner it is fine.
