What about your dealer? Shouldn't you start with them?

That is one of the downsides of using an internet seller. Who have you been in contact with at FR?

Instead of getting frustrated with the situation why not simply take the window out and re-do it? Might take you all of an hours labor and about 5 dollars worth of putty tape.

He shouldn't have to fix it herself if this has been going on since new. And I know I would want it fixed properly by an authorized dealer or the factory.

I think you have not talked to the right people yet .
ask to speak with someone higher in the company than who answered the phone .
I cannot believe someone will not help you .
every little issue I have had with mine is or was taking care of immediately !

Your selling dealer is resposible for such repairs.
Sometimes buying from those internet wholesalers isn't such a great idea.

Isn't RV Wholesalers supposed to have a network of service dealers that will work with you locally? I thought they were supposed to help you find someone who could help.

They still advertise it ...
