2015 33rl, under warranty.
Silverbackmel is still smiling today even after seeing my Silverback 33rl in PAIN! We got back from 3 weeks in Florida around January 3rd and on the 4th, took my rig to the mountains and winterized it not expecting to go back until mid March.
Well, I forgot to bring our gifts from Christmas from under the bed. So, DW and I made the 120 mile round trip to gather the STUFF....
While leaving, I did my usual slow visual of the unit. Low and behold; 2 1/2 inch hairline crack through the gel coat on the refer side slide. It came from something not good. Looks like it may have received stress from the refer on the inside wall. So, here we go. Going to test all of the accolades I have been giving Cedar Creek Division for being responsive.
This is not a dealer prep issue rather, something that went array structural. I will not be satisfied with any gel coat repair job without some sort of extended future warranty for reoccurrence. Some experienced person is going to have to remove stuff, like refer, from inside wall and see what stressed the siding. I think I MAY be looking at new panels for that slide out. UGH! Not happy.
I realize Forest River does not generally follow these comments, however, in the morning, I will be a calling
. I will let you all know how my progress and repair prevails.
