***X2!!!
By-passing the fuse could and will cause a "Melt Down" and possibly a fire.

We are looking at the 21FBRS for next trailer. Any other problems we should be looking for. Is slide problem because of poor install at factory or poor quality materials used in slide.

Other than blowing fuses occasionally the camper is great. We bought ours in January 2014 and have gone 20,000 miles and camped out 150 days. This was a robust test. Lots of bad roads and questionable campsites, but the FRBS took it well.
I would buy another FR product.

I have a 2015 Rockwood 2109S and was worried about this issue. My understanding is that alignment problems prior to 2015 model year were due to the slide motor being "lag screwed" to a chip board mount under the sofa which came loose over time. This was replaced in 2015 (on the 2109S) with a steel angle bracket to which the motor is bolted. Check how your slide motor is mounted and verify that it is secure as it produces considerable torque and if out of alignment will break the attachment to slide drive. Don't bypass fuses; they are there for a reason.

x2. Great trailer and probably better than average construction and customer service. About 14,000 miles on ours. A few minor DIY fixit problems. The slide has been the only major problem so far.
We would buy one again.

Anyone have problem with the wardrobe slide out such as on the 8528IWKS? The wire bracket on mine exploded today. It had to welded together as replacement parts were not available. Repair took five hours!
