Havent forgot about you. Went through all 2009 R.O.s. My tech claims thats when we did a couple. But none there. All archived in a dusty attic lol. I will hit it hard tomorrow. I know we had some farmers, hoping for some state farm. What you have stated about the condition of the sofa base is promising to say the least. Stay positive...

Thanks so much. I did contact Forest River telling them everything and they are going to search the VIN to see if there were any production problems.

BTW, I checked the trailer and its still leaking. It was just a quick check but water is definitely coming in from the front passenger side corner.

By re-reading the posts, where is the door in relation to where the water is coming in? When the siding was fixed, maybe they didn't inspect to see if the wall members were structurally sound going up to the corner where the water is entering.

It only takes a little water(over time) to do a lot of damage.

My little knowledge of covers, do they keep the rain off of the trailer? I know they need to "breath" to ventilate.

I'm not entirely sure what they did. The do insurance estimates and repair work so I took it to them. My insurance accepted it all. Guess I'm more than a little pissed that when I addressed concerns about water, kinda got an 'oh well', though this time, the owner knew I was serious and even he knew the floor was bad. They allegedly resealed all they could find two weeks ago. Yet it still leaks.

Ironically when I asked them about floor repairs, they recommended covering it with a thick laminate floor. Wow.

ETA: Should I call and tell them that their work failed or wait until the adjuster looks at it?

darn it, it looks very intimidating, all the destruction water can do, I wish there was someone around you that could give you some guidance, I have a 1986 winne also that I remodeled last year, I took it down to parade rest, it looks harder than it really is, most of these are just wood and screws, and are easily put together, I replaced part of the floor and walls, and did the carpet and wallpaper, sewn new curtains and valances and even painted the entry, it took me longer because of being old and disabled, but these are very easily repaired, I hope FR comes back with a lot of good news, and can help you get her fixed,,

Should I call the RV dealer and tell them the work they did recently failed?

That would be a good start. If they were contracted to make the trailer water tight they did not do what was asked of them.

I would at least tell them of the problem. But the adjuster is coming tomorrow and I would wait and see what he has to say. Then you can go back to the dealer with info and say what can you do to rectify the problem. BUT, most rv dealers/service centers will say that the sealing is an owner's responsibility. Even though you paid them to do a job, it is going to be YOUR responsibility to make sure the work they did was correct. You are going to be out some money here. How much, will be decided as things play out.

Oh, I hope that dirty word doesn't have to be used.
