Glad to help out. Exposure is usually the best remedy in a situation like this, and don't give up. Make them sick of hearing from you. I bought my QBOK last Oct from a dealer in NH ( we live in CT). I hadn't even unhooked it from the truck after bringing it home from the day we bought it and noticed I'd been dragging a 14 ga wire underneath the galley slide most of the way home. I called the dealer, and they told me I HAD to bring it back there because FR wouldn't honor the warranty otherwise. I went to my nearest FR dealer which happens to be less than a mile from my house and they said they would take care of it and submit it to FR. Never heard from FR, and the job was taken care of. Don't roll over for them!

Ok. Ok. I have to ask... To all owners of a 36qbok does any others have this issue? Also has it been brought to a dealers attention? I do see issues could arise do to all seating is to one side of the unit. Just four average adults could add from 700 to 800 lbs to that side.


Any camping will do. :-)

Haven't had that problem. Probably have about 6k + miles on it now, but this year it has been sitting at a seasonal except for last weekend. Took it off the seasonal last weekend for a 150 mile trip and no issues.

Many thousands of miles on mine (4k in the last 3 months) and no signs of this issue.

Never noticed the tire rubbing, but mine is at the dealer now because it leans to that side. It actually sits 1.375" lower on that side. The springs look pretty much the same from one side to the other so I wouldn't be surprised if my frame is bent.

In hindsight I should never have taken delivery of this thing. When I went to pick it up I noticed that the bedroom door would not stay latched. The dealer fixed it while I did the paperwork. Then when we were leaving we noticed that the basement door on that side and the front one didn't latch properly. We went to lunch and they fixed them by shimming under the catches for the latches. I get about 8 hours into my 11 hour drive home and noticed in the rest area that the whole thing was leaning. Called the dealer and they said it was probably a spring. Now I'm wondering if the frame is bent. That would certainly explain why I had trouble with doors not latching. I still have an issue with the bedroom door. It feels like it is spring loaded when I close it and it pops open all the time when I am walking around in the camper.

Now I'm just waiting patiently, and more and more getting the feeling that I am about to get the shaft.

Haven't noticed anything yet. Honestly I've probably only pulled ours about 500 miles or so since we picked it up. We haven't had any problems (knock on wood) since we got ours back last spring from our dealer who did some warranty work over the winter.

I think this weekend is the 4th or 5th weekend we HAVEN'T stayed in it since the end of march! But being on a permanent site is probably alot easier on one than traveling all over the country. We love ours,.....wish i had just bought a lake house instead, but lake lot rental has its benefits, plus no mowing!
