I too took mine in to Camper Clinic 2 just south of Austin for a windshield leak. I have a 2015 FR3 30DS. While there I noticed a second FR3 in for the same fix. Tammy had a glass repair guy out to fix both of ours. Picked mine up a couple of days later. Crossing my fingers it is fixed right.

Still waiting on the 32" TV replacement though. Video went out after only 7 months.

Have you resolved the a/c leak? Ours is leaking too! It's horrible. Just suddenly pours out, then a steady drip.

I was the other FR3! I remember them telling me about another FR3 there for a windshield leak. Boy, I hope your experience wasn't as bad as mine. Camper Clinic did a terrible job, both times I brought it in for leak issues on the AC and windshield. They never got a glass company out there, they lied to me on the phone about it. When I got there I asked for them to show me what the glass company did, so they grabbed a tech and he said they (camper clinic) put silicon around it, no glass company came out. It sat at their shop for 9 days and they put silicon on it to get it out of the shop bc I kept calling asking for updates.

I ended up taking it back to Motor Home Specialists where I bought it and they took care of it. But that's a whole other story.

Well, after taking our 2016 FR3 30DS into the shop 6 times at 3 different shops for a leaky AC and windshield Forest River finally replaced the AC with another Atwood Air Command. Forest River concluded that the drip pan or something had a crack in it, but it only leaked when it rained. It hasn't rained much since we got it back on June 5th but it did hold up during a few rainy days, with the exception of one big rain in late June that brought a little water through the AC. The windshield will have an occasional bead of water streaming down the inside of the windshield but it is 98% better.

I hope you get it to a reliable shop to get it done right. My experience was so bad because the first two shops were dishonest and absolutely despicable. Taking it 2.5 hours back to Motor Home Specialists where I bought it from is what I will do if anything else needs repair.

No windshield or A/C leak, but I do have an entry door window leak. The seal is protruding out in the bottom right corner inside and outside. Funny though because the leak is at the top. Going into shop Tuesday for that, two LED lamp replacements and to have the cables adjusted on my bedroom slide.

Mark, Camper Clinic told me that a glass company would come out to fix the leak, but after I finally got it home, I noticed that all that was done was more silicone applied around the top. And they made a mess of the windshield doing it. I'm now sure they lied to me as well, and that their tech did the work, and not a glass repair company. After cleaning the windshield myself, we left again for another trip. Luckily, knock on wood, our leak was fixed. It poured on us recently, and we have found no further leaks with the windshield.

It took them three weeks to get another TV in, so when it did arrive, I removed the old one myself and just traded with the new one at the shop. There was no way I was going to let them do the replacement.

BTW - we also bought ours from Motor Home Specialists back in August.

Motor home specialist.. Are they that big out fit in Texas?
Man.. With all the issues not only with these new RV's and deceptions from manufacturers and dealers, we RV owners should unite and file a class action on the industry.

We had been having the ac leak. Just got back from a week long trip and I just left the ac on high, rather than auto. Not one time did it leak. Go figure.

Harley, glad to hear yours is "fixed" for the time being. Best of luck on the road.

We're in DC and getting ready to make a move for Michigan. No AC leaks, thank God!
