We have a 2015 312 bhx. Front slide had leak but was fixed under warranty by non selling dealer who went above and beyond to make us happy. Forest river also stepped up with free slide toppers. Have had no leaks since and have been in heavy downpours. Nice unit and would recommend.
2015 Wildcat 295RSX - our bedroom slide leaked... dealership service dept. attempted a fix 3x with no success... Goshen service techs made 1 unsuccessful attempt. Installed slide-out toppers ==> no more leaks! We're happy now. These 295RSX units seemed to have more bedroom slide-out leaks than most. Apparently, this model was only made about 18 months and then mothballed but it has the features we wanted.
We ordered our 295RSX from the factory with slide toppers. Never had any leaks with lots of usage during the year that we have owned it. And, we have been in some very hard rain and wind. We love the unit.

I have a 312BHX that's got a leak around the bedroom slide...just check it after it rains.
In my case, the screws that hold the facia board on the bottom of the slide covering the motor had long screws that poked a hole in my seal. Hoping it's an easy fix!!
I've also noticed my one of my AC duct's is crushed going to the front bedroom, hoping they can figure out a way to fix that too...don't understand how that happens. Make sure you check all the vents where your testing things.
Otherwise - things seem great. Several small improvements to just make things our own.
Enjoy your wildcat - we can't wait to get out camping in another month!
Negotiate a set of slide toppers into your deal. Pay somewhere between $850 to $1000 installed all in price. Many call them leak insurance but I think they are that and more. For instance, they keep the heat off your slide roof.
I have a 2014 Wildcat 327ck and it did have problems leaking in the two read slides. The 2013 & 2014 models had some issues with the side walls that made it crack at the corners of the slides. They took it down to the plant and replaced the entire wall on both sides ( front to back). Plus they painted the front cap that had faded. So far everything looks perfect and they did it without any hassles at all. Forest River will stand behind their products if there is a problem.
Ah yes the slide leaks, Mr Dan and I have exchanged notes about the 295rsx, just got mine back from fixing vinyl floor issues, they also added some extra seals on the bedroom slide. It rained a bit a few days ago and didn't notice a leak but I had to close the slides for a snow storm. We really like the layout of the 295rsx but it's been a pain in the butt. The dealer I bought the unit from changed hands, at least the service manager sounds like he knows what he's talking about....Good luck with your unit.
