John Armstrong said water intrusion on the strip caused the strip to short out. They supposedly replaced the strips with a newer version. But actually they looked the same..We got to talking to a few other Trilogy owners that were in for service and when they approached John about the problem he replaced their lights also. John indicated then that they would probably end up replacing a lot of lights. So far we haven't had any more problems but I am Leary every time I turn them on. I check them often when they are on..John did indicate that we were not the first to have that problem. I assumed they were going to recall the lights.
Tonngayle, thanks for reposting. It was your post on this subject last year that alerted us to this issue but after talking to John Armstrong last year we relaxed about it.
With the design engineers and recall department knowing about this last year, it's inexcusable that Forest River took no action.
Seriously, we have loved our 5er in spite of its issues and everywhere we go techs or other RVers comment on it's beauty but I'm so over it now. Giving serious thought to activating the lemon law.
Last week it was completely shot springs on our 1 year old rig. Thank goodness we caught it before we hit the Louisiana highways as they are washboards and that huge storm was following us. Can't help but wonder what would have happened if we had not installed new, bigger tires and it was the tire mounter who caught that issue.
