Also some pre planing on your and FR part will keep the turn around time to a minimum. If they know what parts you need they can turn the rig around and have it back to you much faster.
I also see that you are trying to sell your POS to other forum members and stating that you just "want to down size" hmm not nice!I wish you the best and hope that you can get your rig straight and back to camping without the hassles.
Honestly I am wanting to downsize. I want something 36' or less. Yes I am also tired of dealing with FR. I call FR junk because:
Both front hydraulic jacks have been replaced after arguing for two years
My trailer stays 80 degrees in the summer running both A/C's. Even after installing sun guard tint over factory tint and put the thin insulation in all windows.
My trailer cost me $200-$400 a month in propane during the winter due to poor insulation. I was told by dealer it was four seasons winterized
I had to replace all cabinet hinges cause they started falling off from normal use
My bunk bed frame broke after 6 months with my 5 year old sleeping on it.
Just now trying to get axles replaced.
Granted these are nothing major but the craftsmanship of these trailers is horrible. The insulation is the worst I ever seen. I was a newbie when I bought mine and if I knew about the insulation issue I would have bought an open range or keystone. As far as the issues with the trailer they have all been fixed. I would not sell something that is not right to someone regardless. So don't act like I am trying to screw someone over. I am calling FR for face value junk but some people swear by them. After dealing with FR I will never buy another one of their products.
