David, if you get a statement from the guy who repaired your camper that a gasket was missing, I am pretty sure Forest River will cover the repair. It might take a few phone calls, but they are pretty good about things like that.

David,

I'm not taking sides, and I agree, maybe something should have been done. I work part time as a tech at a dealership. The tools required to perform repairs, air compressors, jacks, ..... and to replace a wall, scaffolding.... Well it can get involved.

Please understand the lawyers and the insurance companies. If i go to your campsite to replace a microwave, and drop it on my foot and break my foot, worker's comp will not cover it. Even if they might, I got hurt at your site, so it would be you insurance against the dealer's insurance. Meanwhile I am out of work, with no pay for weeks, while the court battle ensues. When it is all over, the tech has lost his car, house, medical lawsuits..... Hope you understand a little.

Maybe the dealer should have done more, hard call to make on this or any forum.

Hope your recovery is going well.

Windrider

windrider, lets keep it real. That statement is pure bs, and you know it.
If that were the case, then the people that do repairs to your house, or the millions of other people who work on other peoples' property would not be covered either.

And the OP already said that his dealership did mobile repairs.

For twenty years, before my disability i worked half of those as an hvac service tech and the other half as the service manager. We were bound by the state to be bonded and insured to work at any location. My dealer does work on-site, i have witness this personally. Im calling Forest River today after receiving contact information from another FROG member. We have all the documention of the work described and photographic proof of the damage and the cause. You guys have been very helpful, and I pray that FR steps up and helps us.

I've found Forest river and my dealer to be not so great. 2 days after purchase (on the road home) my main window molding popped off and could not be replaced.
The awnign clip was missing a spring so it was not usable and need replacement. Work was done by a Forest river dealer in Maine and I cannot get Forest river to reimburse me for the parts I had to pay out of pocket.
The main entry door deadbolt calved and I took the trailer to a Forset River dealer and they refused to carry out warranty work unless I paid for it up front and then submitted the receipts for reimbursement second.
I did that and now Forest River wants the door handle which the dealer threw out back before reimbursement
I also have a camber issue where all 4 tires are worn on the ourside and the dealer wants me to return to Ohio or send the axles back for their inspection.
This will be the second Forest River product I'll purchase - the first and the last.
Sorry about your loss but it seems that this company is standing behind making money but not much else.
