I have the same recall on my 2018. My dealer said it could take longer than 12 hours if they find any wet wood under the seal.

Has anyone had this recall done yet? I have been waiting over a month. Dealer says waiting on parts from factory. Thankfully I have a building.

FR3

We received a recall as well , brought it to the dealer on 10/12....they ordered the parts from FR, they received it 10/27....still in the shop, but the dealer, Campers Inn, in Merrimack, NH told me it would take 12 hours. ok, I said....they told me I could pick it up yesterday...hasn't even been touched.!!!!! And we're getting cold up here in NH, hasn't been winterized yet, still waiting.....oh, and they also said once the MH is in for recall, you can't get it back until the recall is completed....is that BS or what?

This is a head scratcher to me anyway. How do they make so many rv's without potential water intrusion and now they seemed to have forgotten how. The quality control at Forrest River seems to be lacking.

FOR SURE. 2017 2618 ULTRA V
Seems like they have forgot everything but how to take your money.

Recall notice. 2018 GT5 36B5

I also got the recall for sealing under seam between roof and side, they say it is an issue with some times the paper on one side of the sealing caulk did not peel off and water can leak in those areas because it goes through where the tape might be. he told me they take the strip off along where the rain gutter runs above the awnings along the length of the rV, and they check and replace the caulking tape, replace the strip and put a new molding in the strip with all the screws in it. He told me if it didn't have an issue, it might take 2 hours, if it did then I suppose it would need those damaged areas repaired. That's about what I was told. Don't know much more yet but I will check tomorrow to see where they stand on it. I took mine in Wednesday last week so, they have had it 3 working days.
