Silverback front cap paint

I had very bad fading on front cap, so I contacted forest river and they agreed to fix front cap, now im having issue took 5th wheel to dealer and they said they don't not have a paint booth big enough to do work, and that no one in area did that would preform forest work. I have contacted forest on this with no response at all. Not sure what I should do now. the told me when I first called it had to be taken to a forest river dealor. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Very few dealers even have a paint facility ... you'll need to call around for one to fit your needs then get approval from FR. Some brown cap owners are trending towards the light color cap replacement offered by FR.

I had brought my first Cedar Creek from Tom Johnson and they had a huge service center and they could not paint the cap. That was on the first one, they wanted to send camper to a paint shop. This one I have now was brought at Tom Johnson and when this cap faded they told me to call the factory. They could not fix the cap

They gave me a June 19, 2017 date three months ago, so I'm guessing they've got to be into September/October by now.....

Good grief I thought my fix was bad for getting it replaced in October of this year, it was scheduled in February of this year. But next year

304bs having similar paint issue

My 304bs is having a similar issue with the paint. The paint is peeling off. Called the dealer and no response.


Sounds like FR has a problem in the painting department!

In April, 2015, I accidentally scraped under a low hanging tree with our 2014 Silverback33RL and damaged the roof as well as scraping the top of the front cap...insurance paid for a new roof installation and having the front cap painted...all the work was done by our dealer, Southaven RV, in Southaven, Mississippi just south of Memphis TN....they had just built a paint facility at their dealership....did a great job even though it had to be done twice....got the wrong color the first time but second try looks like a perfect match....new decals and all.
