Wow! Replaced vinyl in kitchen? Mind if I ask why? I'm just hunting for possible issues to look for when she arrives next week. Dealer is going through it thoroughly this week.

it had a small tear from the factory, the dealer had a company come in and did a great job replacing it. the tear was about the size of a half dime I could not see it but the wife did

I just finished troubleshooting a PIA (pain in the *****) electrical issue: the factory improperly crimped the connector on the main 12v feed from the batt to the panel. Instead of correcting the issue by replacing the connector they just trimmed some strands off the 6ga wire and shoved it back into the used connector. Everything looked good but the connectivity was intermittent so the battery would not recharge on shore power and the 12v systems would not work off the battery. While chasing the entire run underneath the camper the wire fell away from the connector and I was able to find and fix the issue. You might do a quick tug/jiggle on all the exposed connectors you can access.
Just another Saturday I'll never get back...

Thanks,

Fred,

Sorry to hear of your issues. Please send me a private message with your full contact information, VIN#, and your Wildcat dealer's name. I'll forward this to my service department for more assistance.

tv lift

Chris, hoping you can help me. We have a 2012 Wildcat 313RE that has the tv in the living area that is lifted up from behind the fireplace. The lift has a broken gear on it. When I went to the Lci1 site they showed a Shwintek lift that is not like the one in our unit. I did not see any manufacturer name on the lift. I was hoping to find a replacement gear instead of replacing the entire unit. Could you help me identify the mfg of the unit and possibly locate a vendor I could purchase the gear from?

Thanks
Dennis

Chris, spoke with Kyle at Forest River and he informed me that the mfg was Smith Richards. I spoke with Dave at Smith Richards and he is going to snd me a replacement unit. Very impressed with how fast they responded and how well they stood behind their product.

We do try hard to partner with suppliers that stand behind their products and source and build domestically. I'm happy to hear they took care of you.

FYI: This is the link to the TV lift:

Current Build Time?

Chris, Do you know current build time for a 5th wheels? I ask as I ordered one at the end of March and the dealer as of two days ago didn't know ETA on any units from factory. Thanks Chris
