Good choice gsbuick65. I wish I had done the same thing. You will be thanking yourself down the road. Good luck with your RV shopping.

That is the coupler chewing the hitch ball up.

I have a 2015 Hemisphere 282rk that did the same thing. Not sure why.
I'm using a Blue Ox WDH.

My Hemi 282RK did the same thing. I felt the trailer coupler pocket and sure enough, there is a large piece of metal, weld spatter, or something which is gouging the ball. I used a dremmel with a grind bit to smooth it off.

I think it was a burr also. I did the same.
Mine was brand new when this happened.

I've pulled a lot different trailers with and without grease in the coupler. Never had a problem, ever.

Has to do with the way you load camper too, if you have all the weight on the front without a wdh.

We have a 2015 Salem Hemisphere 286rl, while traveling on interstate at 60-65 mph roof pealed off, along with roof vents. Forest River took care of problem, said if was a glue issue and they knew of the problem.

trouble with Salem

Well, at least I know that I'm not the only one having issues. Mine has been in shop going on 4 weeks. Dealer can't get parts keeps calling and gets runaround. Latest is parts are on truck to be delivered. (Sounds like check is in the mail) Last Forest River product I'll ever own. If I wouldn't loose so much money I'd trade it tomorrow and buy another brand. I've hade Aerolites and Puma and no issues. Might be looking into legal resolutions.

Any one interested in sending Warren Buffit a letter complaining about his Forest River products. I was told there were over 100 units like ours that came off assembly line with same problem of roof glue. Anyone want to be behind one of these units if the roof peals off.

Peter Liegl is CEO and President of Forest River, he did own it but sold it to Warren Buffit of Berkshire Hathway.

Mr. Buffits mailing address is:


Let's flood his mailbox with letters and ask him to just read FR forum or Google Highway Transportation and Safety Administration.
