Yup. I've got a sidewall crack at the lower front corner of the bedroom slide as well. Hasn't been fixed yet. Until our list trip, it was small enough that the slide outer fascia covered it so it had been on the after season list. It grew a bit so I need to find a shop willing to repair. Very Interested in pirates55 outcome!

That was the very biggest thing that I worked on/talked with Gary when mine went back and turned into the debacle that it was. The length of time was immaterial, it was getting a schedule and being able to realistically live up to it. It wasn't until my whole factory return went nuclear were we able to hammer out a day-by-day schedule and they hit it.

I'm hopeful that they're better able to give estimates on pickup time, fix time, and return/delivery time.

I strongly suggest you winterize it yourself before sending it back. I think it would also be prudent to turn off the electric side to the water heater at the water heater itself (in addition to inside).

I agree with Youroo that once it is back in your possession that you take it to a truck wash to rinse the undercarraige and clean it up well. I didn't.

Gary and Sabre are good people. They'll take care of you!

My camper is in the shed. When I pull it out I will take a picture. My crack is in the same place as what JTstromburg described. My dealer fixed it and it came right back. They said the only way to stop a crack in fiberglass is to drill a small home in front of it and then channel it out, fill it will fiberglass and repaint it. They did all that and the crack came right back. So I'm going to go ahead and get it address sooner than later.

Dealer says they will probably put a new side on the camper since there is a seam a few feet in front of the crack.
