Hey Chewie or anyone else, did you get the second year warranty from Forrest River and if so was it easy to get?

We bought it. If I remember it was $150 for an additional year. We just sent in the form that came in our owners packet. Pretty easy.

Okay thanks I'll have to go thru the packet again and see if it's in there.

I didn't get the 2nd year FR warranty, I have I think a 5-6 year extended and can remember who it's through. I'd have to get the paperwork.

With the rear door it makes it tough to put a bike rack back there. We don't have any bikes with us but maybe some of the others have a good idea.

Very excited about picking up the camper tomorrow, the 356qbq. We did the pdi last Saturday and I left it there so they can finish up some final items. What are your ideas about hot water heaters? Should I have gotten a 10 gallon? Or will a 6 gallon hot water heater with quick recovery be okay? FYI - for those of you who are following my journey the dealer will be throwing in a ladder in about three or four weeks, very awesome.

Fun town rv and forest river hg 356qbq

We purchased our first fifth wheel ( FOREST RIVER HG 356QBQ) from Fun Town RV in Cleburn,Tx last year. They delivered the unit to me in September 2013. .
My new fifth wheel came to me with these defects
1. outside sink would not drain( check valve bad),
2. stove would not stay lit
3. heater would not blow into back bathroom
4. sink faucets in both bathroom sinks leaked
5. both toilets in the bathrooms leaked .
I have had my fifth wheel for over a year and it just got fixed. All these repairs should have been covered under warranty, but it cost me $248 to have them repaired. I would never buy another RV from your Fun Town RV in Cleburne,TX or Forest River Product., your service department is the worst I have encountered in my life. The worst part when you call to complain they just send you to someones voice mail and then they never call you back. I paid alot of money for this fifth wheel and got the extended warranty and still had to pay to get it fixed. Forest River is no better than Fun Town RV, they never call you back to answer your complaint.

I have had my HG 356QBQ for 9 months now n I have a lot of problems with it, I took it to lazydays to get repair a leak on the black tank flush water line, holes in the air mattress, leak on the outside kitchen, control panel ( panel that works all the slides, awning, landing gear n stabilizer jacks not working) the exhaust fan (above the stove) n the only thing they got fixed in a week was a leak on the black tank flush ( their excuse was that they were waiting on forest river to approve the repairs). I use my rv full time n I travel every week, n now I have more problems ( there is a big gap in the wall between the living room slide n the back room slide, the bathtub on the bathroom is leaking n I have a soft floor in the living room area). I'm really disappointed with this rv.

I had an other issue with my fifth wheel last Monday, I was making a left to turn to go into the interstate and all I saw was my trailer rocking side to side, I pulled over n I saw my rim n tire on the intersection the hub studs broke ( making the rim n tire to pop off ) thanks to that my fender, skirt n even the motor of my rear stabilizer jacks broke. Be careful out there guys hopefully this doesn't happen to u guys, it was a little scary not to much about my trailer I was worry about someone getting hurt
