Eric welcome aboard

I have a question about the windshield. Ours leaked about a month ago and I looked everywhere to find the leak. I actually saw a drip from the top of the upper bunk. However I was unable to find out where it came from. The bed was dry and no signs of water. The computer tray had about an inch of water in it. I dried this out and put a piece of plastic and a towel on the dash to keep any water out. I have not seen any water in over three weeks. We have had some heavy down pours in North Carolina and no leaks. Do you think there is a leak or something else? Thanks for your help and thanks for being on the forum.

We have a 2015 FR3 DS. Is it possible it was built without either a black tank wash out valve or a check valve between the fresh water and city water tanks? I'm sure I'll think of more questions over time.
Depending on when the unit was built in 2015 would depend on where or not the unit has a black tank flush. This would have been something added around September last year from the manufacture. Dealers can still add the black tank flush system to a coach built before they were added in production.

The flush system works by directly back feeding water into your black tank. While this system sounds nice, they really only clean the same parts of the tank over and over again. we added them to the product because the customers were requesting them more often. The best way to maintain your black water tank is using RV toilet paper, and the proper chemicals to break down waste.

The areas I would check the seal between the cap and the windshield, and the cap and the roof. Also i would check to make sure the winds are full closed. Also if water was coming in from the roof, and dripping down the side wall you would see some water marks on the wall board. If it keeps happening i would take it to a dealer and have them check the seal around the windshield, or the windows in the cab.

Hello Eric, we have 2014 FR3 Purchased two years ago Sept. Our bedroom slide gearbox broke a gear, we spent a four month trip with the slider in operable. I called warranty and received no reply. There is a common problem with these gearboxes as the same thing happened on the main slider last year. Any chance I can get reimbursed for the repair on the bedroom?

The only thing i can think of for trying to get it all out at once would be to hook up water/air to the fill and let the system run for a few hours, As these could have gotten into a tank, are now somewhere in the lines.

This would be something that I do not have the authority to say yes or no on. What I would say is that next time I would recommend going to a dealer during the trip, as many dealers will fit you in to get the unit fixed, as they recognize that travelers may have issues while on the road. I would try contacting Norco about the issue and see if they will do anything for you, as they are the supplier we use for the slide mechanism.

I sent an email to Kathy Wing in parts and did get a reply from her about the Atwood door lock latch on our 2014 FR3 30 DS. She gave me a # for Atwood so I could purchase a, hopefully, better quality lock. Unfortunately she only gave me 9 digits. I sent her a reply asking for the # and also asked if a TriMark 1650 latch would work on the Atwood door. I have not heard back from her.
Could you please check on the Atwood # and also see if the TriMark latch would work.
Many thanks!

Atwood Mobile can be reached by phone in the US or Canada at 1-800-825-4328. They should be able to answer your questions on the door latch, and what upgrades should fit.

Eric,
Thanks for reply. Can you give me the part number for the replacement headlights for the 2014 FR3?

Below you will find the part numbers for the sealed headlights with the LED rings. We used to purchase these through ABC Marketing out of Elkhart, IN. There part numbers are;
P/side # 02-AZ-CL07-PBC-R-A
D/side # 02-AZ-CL07-PBC-R-A

If you order them from our parts department the part numbers are;
HEADLIGHT, WITH LED RH (PASS SIDE) SEALED, FR3 ONLY # 20X43340A
HEADLIGHT, WITH LED LH (DRIVERS SIDE) SEALED, FR3 ONLY # 20X43394A

I believe they were the same headlights that Chevy used on there trucks in 2012 or 2013.

Hi Eric, is there a master list of fuse locations, size, and what they protect? Or a detailed electrical schematic showing them?

On my 2016 30ds there seem to be fuses located all over, some are located in panels some installed inline.

I try to look for the easy stuff, and fix what I can before bringing it for warranty work, but the lack of information makes trouble shooting difficult.

I have some older schematics from the forum, but if you have any additional drawings electrical and/or any other systems, or additional engineering documents that could be shared it would help all of us, and help reduce FR's warranty costs.
Scott
