Washing FR3 on the road, Blue Beacon?

Hi everyone,

Used to take my class C through the Blue beacon truck wash while traveling. Not sure I want to do this with the FR3. Windshield leak issues, just afraid. What do you do?

Get it fix, I had the same problem. Take it to an authorized dealer if your rig is still on warranty.

Recurring leaks

Getting the leaks fixed in these windshields seems to be a real problem. Ours has already been "fixed" twice before & is currently in the shop for another leak. I hope they have it fixed this time. However, it is not always in the rain when it develops a leak. The last 2 leaks occurred while it was in the driveway being washed. I am getting nervous about getting in the rain or even washing it.

I feel exactly the same. Depending on weather conditions, we get seriously dirty on way to FL. I usually stop at a blue beacon truck wash and for $35.00 I get a good scrub and spray. I am apprehensive about doing this with the FR3 due to windshield issues. I check for any water at least once a week, as we are in winter storage now. Everything seems ok and I've left a fan inside to keep the air circulating.
