Was that a used RV when you purchased it or was it just sitting on the dealers lot too long? Regardless, I'm sorry to hear of your troubles.

Sorry for your problems

Sounds like alot of things that need cleaning up. Two things you might want to consider. One is to contact FR Sandpiper/Sierra plant in Goshen to see if they can help this winter and two, try to hold on until the FROG rally in Goshen next August, attend the rally and have the hard working techs that FR sends out take care of your issues.

If you want a contact name at the plant let me know by pm and I'll hook you up. At least it would be a start. All the best

Dave

This is good information to know. I’ll have to tone back my recommendation of the Goshen Rally for repairs unless I know they are the original owners of their rig. I’d hate to recommend the rally to someone only to find they had repairs rejected because they bought their rig used.

I spoke to a couple at last years rally who had bought their rig used and were getting lots of things fixed by the techs.

That is sad to hear a 4 year old trailer with these issues. Sorry to hear, this is disappointing.
