FR Warranty issues...need your knowledge

Team,

My 2016 W is headed back to the dealer again after major water damage in the overhead bunk. Spent a month there already trying to solve and who knows how long it will take this time...but its still taking on water. FR can't get it in until Nov/Dec at best and I don't know if I can count on the dealer to get it right this time. I've read in other posts over the course of the last year that we don't have any rights with regards to lemon laws, is this true? Things like that are what I'm considering. Figured I'd start here since you've all been so knowledgeable in the past.

Thanks in advance...trying to find the silver lining on this cloud.

According to this website:
Illinois Lemon Laws - Lemon Law Attorneys | DMV.org
RVs are covered by the Illinois lemon law statute. Be that as it may, I'd suggest investing a little in a lawyer to (at least) figure out your options.

Good luck!

Dave

I can feel the frustration. But if you talk lawyer you are just creating more headache for yourself - I am sure that Forest River and their Representatives will step in and will do whatever can be done: but if you take legal steps it will stop!
Just my opinion and experience.....

Joshua's #3 post is the best thing right now.

Educated guess, lemon laws may only cover the chassis.

Dealer has 3 full and seperate attempts to remedy before lemon law and even then mediation after that.

I think Josh is starting the ball rolling in the right direction.

Good to hear FR is out in front on this. Please let us know how it gets handled. I'm sure that if FR is close to this one, you will see satisfaction.
