Blue- mine is a Dometic 300 Series.


Wanna know how I know? I didn't winterize it and it cracked its water valve. I just had that replaced. Sure woulda been nice if Sabre installed water valves at each toilet (like houses have) so I could have turned that one off instead of going without water overnight.

fiberglass delamination

Sam
I was just curious if you could tell me how common delamination has been on the sabre line? I have a 2008 30bhds bought new in 2009 and just found the third case of delamination in the last four years.I'm not sure if this is a common problem with all fiberglass units or if it is just the Sabre.Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Any unit will delaminates if water gets in. You have to make sure to check your sealant every 90 days. As for "natural" delamination, it is very rare. We have dealt with the Sabre line for 3 years now had have not had any problems. I would check the roof caulk and silicon for any cracks or gaps in the areas you found the delamination.

Hi Sam,

I had a question...

I was wondering how to maually operate the slides on my 36QBOK-7. It was ordered the end of January and we took delivery March 2, 2013. I have found how to manually operate the landing gear, rear stab jacks, and the main living room slide, but I cannot seem to find how to operate the bunkhouse slides or the bedroom slide manually. Another member had posted that he has a small hole on the drivers side bunkhouse slide which will operate the passengers side slide, then there is a place to operate the drivers side bunkhouse slide once you get the passengers side slide out. However, i do not have this hole, nor is there any place to operate the slides that is accessible from under the camper that I can see.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Dear Bluflame11,
I'm going to try and answer this without standing in front of a 36QBOK, so hang in there.
1. The master bedroom slide: you would have to lift off the mattress and remove the bed base panel. this would expose the mech. You would then need a socket or open end wrench to bring in the slideout.

2. Main Living room slide: There should be a small hole on the opposing side (in the skirt metal) of the unit that your crank bar would insert and allow you to crank it in.

In the bunk room (at some point there were two types of slide mech. used here, so I will cover both)

Look at the exterior of the slideout box. If there are silver bars on the endwalls that have a "S" groove, this is called a Schwintek slideout. Visit Youtube and type in Lippert Schwintek Slideout and they have videos on the processes to retract.

If you do not have the silver bars, there should be a crank location on the opposing side just like the main living room slide allowing you to hand crank the box in.

I hope that helps.

Thanks! that helps a ton...Mine does have the silver bars on the rear slides. I will do some more research on those! Thanks for your help!!

Sam,
I know your a busy busy man but I also know youd love to hear suggestions regarding improvements of the sabre line.

unless this has changed since my model year 32BHOK-6, the outside kitchen light switch turns on both the outside and inside "outside" kitchen lights.
Sometimes I would prefer to have one or the other and or both .
I understand that the light on the "inside of the outside kitchen also has a switch on the light fixture but my dw cant always reach it depending on the cg terrain .

thoughts ?

Check your sealant every 90 days is pretty ambiguous. Can FR be more specific about how to check this, what do problem areas look like, how should areas be resealed, and what products should be used? Well written owners manuals for each model could save you many of questions and provide owners with many answers about this and dozens of other questions. So how about it?
