I don't really see a problem with the underside, either. If you plan to keep the frame and underside in perfect condition- sell it now. It can't be done and you will not be happy, ever, if you expect to keep it pristine.

We have had our fifth for 3 years, and the underside, frame and all, remains as clean as the day it left the factory.

To revert (BACK) to the OP,the cracks in the Vees were short ones above the corner of the slides. Not full length like this case. Now if it is a Crack back to the Fac. Where is the Final Decision Now? From the Fac.that is? Youroo!!

I investigated the camper more closely and looked underneath the camper and found out that all the pipes and bolts were rusty. Duck tapes were used in several places. Attached here some pictures in hope to hear your opinions.



We reserved a site for Memorial Day weekend and we do not plan to take this camper out until we receive a solution from FR.
Did the guy that FR sent out to look at the trailer say what they were going to do about the scratch?

Surface rust on the metal gas pipe isn't unusual and won't hurt anything. Both of my previous two Wildcats looked like that. Both also had the tape on the underbelly. The tape, which is useless, will probably come off in a year or two. Replace it with Gorilla tape and if done properly will stay on for many years. The tape is used to cover the areas of the corrugated plastic where cuts were made in it for the plumbing.

I don't why you are going to punish yourself by not using your Wildcat over the Memorial Day weekend. Other than a scratch there isn't anything wrong with your Wildcat. Go out and enjoy your new fifth wheel until you find out what FR is going to do about the scratch.

If you don't believe me then join the Wildcat Campers Forum and ask there. I'm sure they will verify everything I told you. Here's a link to that forum WildcatCamperForum.com There are thousands of Wildcat owners on that forum.
