Chris we are currently camping in Galveston on our shakedown cruise. We have a leak under the bedroom slide inside the bathroom next to shower pan. Looks like its coming under the part where the rollers are. Also the trim piece around the front cap started dripping yesterday. Maybe a/c getting under trim on roof and running down and out trim piece. Any suggestions I can do myself would be appreciated.

I'm not Chris... but please tell us which trailer (model, etc.) you have.

I have a 295RSX which has the same bedroom leak. Corrections have been attempted 3x in one trip to the dealership (still not successful). I have temporarily solved my problem with a suggestion from this forum. Another member noticed that the AC condensation was dripping on the top of his bedroom slide and standing long enough to work its way down into the bathroom floor. We consider it a design flaw that the drip rail drip extension points straight onto the top of that slide. He bought a pool noddle and attached it to his drip spout and diverted the condensation off the side of the slide.

I used a section of black foam rubber like HVAC people put on copper AC lines between house compressors and the house. I cable tied this foam tube to my drip spout and have solved my problem temporarily. My unit goes back to the dealer on Wednesday.

We had a similar leak in our 295RSX initiated by the AC condensation run off. Dealer found and fixed a 10" gap in the seal on the bottom of the slide. So far, no repeat , even after several hours of heavy rain while parked in the campsite (Galveston, as well). The tubing is a good idea.

Mine has no seal on the bottom. It's just the rollers and I can put my hand into the back of trim piece which is inside.

Poor finish work!!!!

Chris,
I bought my F312bhs almost a year ago. I noticed my clock was not working so I took it in and thought they could swap it with one on the lot. She said they could not do that because they didn't own the ones on the lot that the bank did. This was in April. She offered to send it back to the factory for a replacement. This is now end of July and she calls me and says the the part is in and I could pick it up or they could mail it to me at my expense since I an working 2 states away. It took all this time to make this happen as far as a replacement? And now they want me to pay to have it shipped to me when it wasn't my fault? I have lost a lot of respect for Camping World. On another issue I had a problem with a leak they charged me $226.00 because they couldn't find the leak that I took it in for. Funny, I found it and fixed it and am still out $226.00. This should have been covered under the warranty. I had another issue with the wardrobe slide in the master bedroom. I took pictures showing how unfinished the corners are on one side while the other side is finished. She said that is the way it is.....not in my book when one side is finished and the other is left rough. So I went thru and took pictures of how shoddy the finish work is in this unit. Along the edge of the outside kitchen you get splinters from a piece of thin wood that is poorly installed and not taped or the edge rubbed off to get it cleaned up so you don't hurt yourself.
Well enough about how unhappy we are with our fifth wheel Wildcat.
Does Forest River cover getting the part back to me?

Thanks,
Kenn

I also have no exterior seal on the bottom of the bedroom slide....and dealer mentioned that none of his other Wildcats on the lot did either. I wonder if there is a seal on the bottom of the main slide....?

Is there not a seal on the bottom of the slide by design? If there is a water leak from above...is it better to have no seal on the bottom so the water can escape....or would the water be trapped if the bottom was sealed like the sides and top should be sealed?

I need a cable wiring diagram for my 2013 Wildcat. When I hook my tailgater up to my cable in, I get a snowy picture on all my tvs. Winegard, said that their tv booster will not allow a satellite signal thru. I do turn the booster off, but still get a snowy picture. I plan on modifing it, if I can get a diagram. My dealer is absolutely clueless to this issue. They told me that my receiver was bad. I bought another receiver and that did nothing.

Have you tried running the coax straight from the tailgater to the reciever and then another coax direct to the tv?
Good luck getting any wire diagram from any dealer on anything in the trailer that is what I am running into on my front jacks, awning working
