Thanks for the advice. I brought it to the dealer yesterday and they did a thorough inspection. All the caulking lokks good and it appears to be the glue problem. They are contacting FR to get it documented and we'll fix it during the off season. If I notice any swelling or bumps I'll take it right back.

I hope you get yours very soon!

rockwood06 & magonzo,

It's good you got it to the dealer so they could document the problem. I hope it holds up through the summer for you.

I'll post, with some pics, when I get the tt back so you'll know how the tt looks after the repair.

They will probably tell you to take it to your dealer and from that point your dealer will maintain direct contact with FR.

I couldn't find any evidence on the outside where water might be leaking in, but it was.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

latest update!

I talked to my dealer last Thursday. Still no idea when the tt will be back. After a few calls back and forth they told me it was scheduled to be delivered by the end of this week.

They called today. TT is back! Yeah! Only took 4˝ weeks instead of 2.

Hold on, wait a minute. Now for the bad news. The driver said the front steps opened by themselves and hit a curb! The day I believe that one is the day I'll be the proud owner of some ocean front property in Arizona!

No other damage but the steps have to be replaced. The dealer is trying to get new steps shipped over night so I can pick the tt up this weekend.

Meanwhile, they are going through the trailer to make sure all water, gas & electrical systems are working properly. You can bet I'll check it all myself this weekend.

I hope that anyone else with this problem, or any other problem, has better luck than I have.

CAUTION! Don't linger on this post too long. Some of my kind of luck may bleed through the internet and attach to you!

I have already had it, the question is....can I get it again???????? I sounds like to me that the driver forgot to put the step up or he hit the curb with the step in the closed position. That's right blame the poor step, I am glad to hear your camper is back and I would go over everything at the deales lot to make sure all is good.

The front steps on the tt are right in front of the tires, so I'm thinking he ran over something and additional damage is possible. I asked the dealer if there was any other damage and they said there wasn't and that they checked it real good. Bet they didn't check it as close as I will.

rockwood06, If your feeling like you've been ran over, dragged through the mud and your wallet is thinner than normal, it's too late. Your in the advanced stages of Bad Luck Syndrome (BLS)!

I have two sets of steps, one set in the front and the other in the rear and no where close to the tires. He may have made a right hand turn and jump a curb I just hope he was not going too fast, when you get to the dealers look under the right front side axle and see if it had shifted to the rear, measure the distance between the tires on both sides and inspect the tires.

Good idea. Didn't think of measuring the tire spacing. Thanks for the help.

My tt has two sets of steps as well. It's a front kitchen model so the front door is almost halfway back. You might be able to see in my signature pic that the front door is right in front of the wheels.

I'm also wondering how hard the tt hit. Could it be possible that some of the seams they have just re-caulked have some seperation? Maybe enough for another leak? Or is my imagination going too far?

Dealer is 95 miles away so I won't be able to see the tt till this weekend.

It's funny how I forgot what happen to me last year and this concerns the step when it hits something.
We had plans to take our camper off of our seasonal site and take a trip to Ocean City Md for a week, this is when I had a problem with my slide out. I was headed to the dealer from the seasonal site to get the adjustments taken care of so on the way I had to take different rout, there was a head on collision so we were detoured on to a small back road which was about 11/2 lanes wide for two way traffic. In order to get on this small road I had to make a sharp left hand turn, the problem was that the road I had to turn on had a drop or slop as I turned I noticed that the truck had some resistance, anyway once the truck and trailer straighten out all was good.
Once I arrived at the dealer I inspected the camper and found that the resistance I felt was the step housing, it had scrap the road and bent the entire housing at the bottom of the camper....FYI the steps were folded back in to the housing they never pop out. The only way I could get the steps straighten out was to hook a chain fall up to the step housing and attach the other end to the recovery hooks on my truck and ratchet them back in place, now the steps have some problems, they are a little to open I could not get them perfect, so check your steps as well.
