I got the confirmation of the lifetime warranty form I sent to FR 6 weeks ago. They just mail back the form I filled up, stamped paid and signed. I was able to get this contract several months later, in the form it indicated within 10 days of purchase. Here are pics of the proof:

I dropped my form the mail today. It is the warranty the camper should come with but I suppose making it an add on has some legal reasoning as far as making it valid for the original purchaser only.

Are you within the 10 days...lol
I'm glad I am in this forum, I found that lifetime warranty info in here after several months I got my rig. My dealer offered me a good price for the 7 years warranty and did not give me the option to get FR warranty. I plan to use my rig for more than 7 years and I hope it will last way over 15 years.

That depends on how you count. Is that to the date on the form and the check or the date of the postmark? Is FR really that sticky?

I was just kidding because they accepted mine even after several months...the 10 days is for pressure sale tactic.

Understood. The ten day limit is a good incentive to motivate people to get it in. It certainly motivated me. It also gives FR flexibility to accept or deny applications later without too much concern about adverse selection problems.

Monitoring Leveler High Tech Style

Using a pair of iPod/apple devices to monitor your level indicator. I use an old iPod 4 and a new iPod 5 for this tip:

Leveler tool is located inside the front door panel.

Install the BlueCam free app to both devices, use Bluetooth to pair up the devices, I use the iPod 4 as the remote camera and iPod 5 for monitor

This is what I see on my iPod 5 monitor while leveling the rig, this bubble was for the side to side leveling. I just move the remote camera to point to the bubble you are leveling.

This makes it so easy to level the trailer when you go solo. Before I was checking the leveler like a million times when I was using the Bal leveler and the tire was on the opposite side...frustration almost kicked in but I kept my cool...now problem solved

I tried using this method for monitoring the rear while backing up but I find it too confusing but I should use it when I'm by myself to monitor how close the rig's bumpers is to the rear wall or trees.

This works great with two people because it doubles as a voice monitor. The guide person does not have to shout or be seen, say your command and point the camera for the driver to see. The driver could also ask questions to the guide.

I love my gadgets...lol

A cromulent use of the technology if there ever was one.

I can see using the blue cam software to help hitch-ups. Cobble up an iPhone mount on the front of the trailer that looks down on the coupler, then watch yourself from the drivers seat as you back up to hook up. A frabjous application of a cromulent notion.

Yes, you could use your iPhone and iPad pairing. You could have the option of your DW point the iPhone camera towards the coupler and have a two way talking too.
