It looks like hell and every time I go camping people notice it. Is this the kind of advertising Forest River wants?

Eric
So let me get this straight.
6 year old camper.
Delamination noticed this year
No photos of roof or seams to show it has been well maintained
No reciepts to show roof membrane maintenance
Yet somehow this is all FR's fault
First post on the forum is to flame FR for not fixing your camper for free
Did I get all that right?
Just want to be fair.
Let me know how this all turns out.

No it did not just start. The delamination has been going on since 2007 and I have tried several times to get it addressed by FR, dealer, and BBB.

My trailer has been well maintained and inspected everytime I wash and wax it, which by the way is monthly.

My first post on this site because I was searching for help.

Did you get it right? No you are clueless. I am looking for help here, not trying to start anything.

Yes I do consider it FR's fault, if you do some research you would know this is a problem and not just caused by water damage.

I believe the thread started was to help people.

Sorry if I ruffled your feathers, but don't treat me like I have no clue what I am talking about. I have been in aviation maintenance for over 30 years and know a little about maintaining something.

I am sorry, I was touchy this morning.

7 phone calls to judge elections today; starting last night at 9PM.

Good luck with your attempt at resolution.
I still feel you will have an uphill fight on your hands.

Unusual that I get that testy with a post.
I should report myself.

Hydraulic slide rooms can be run in manually. See the manual here:
http://www.lci1.com/OwnersManuals/Sl...ideout-Web.pdf

Here's the information (without images) from the Owner's Manual:

Quote:
The Lippert Hydro-Sync Slideout System can be run with auxiliary power devices like a heavy duty electric drill. In the event of electrical or system failure, this manual method of extending and retracting the slideout room can be used. A standard handheld drill is all that is required. A standard 38" room will take approximately 45 seconds to retract. See the instructions below.
Fig. 5

1. Remove protective label. (See Fig. 5).



2. Using a standard hex bit, insert into auxiliary drive device, i.e.heavy duty electric drill



3. Insert hex bit into coupler found under protective label, Fig. 6



4. Run drill forward or clockwise to extend jacks and in reverse or counterclockwise to retract jacks.

Please have your Wildcat dealer contact Forest River service for the best advice on this! Scratches are usually a fairly easy fix when done by a professional.

For BILLSRVSUPPLIES,

Have you checked the water lines going to your shower faucet? A lot of times these are not tight and water seeps at the connections and gathers on the plastic sheet under shower. After a while it has no where to go so it ends up seeping out underneath the shower gettting the carpet wet.
