So I go pick up my first fifth wheel, a brand new 336RLT with my brand new F250 and the RV dealer minion tells me to pull forward after he put my gate UP, yes UP with the hitch unlatched and clips off the top of my tailgate step
ruining it with the king-pin. Fortunately it appears only the step needs replaced at $900 un-installed, only, because I can't imagine what a new tail-gate would run.
First-time hitching up EVER and this....
They said they'd fix it but I'm wondering now since I pulled forward based on his instructions am I gonna eat this, I have no idea WHY HE PUT THE TAILGATE UP....
I am thinking they have insurance for this, but then again I was driving and being instructed how to hook up as a new customer of theirs, I already knew but let him do his thing.... Boy am I sorry now, at least no one was hurt but still..... This sucks, what a way to start off Rv'ing.
I'm thinking they will fix this, "Pull Forward!" Crunch. Yep, profanity, it happened..... I'm just nervous they will weasel out when they see the repair bill.
I can't believe this happened, but it could be worse I guess.... How basic, and yes even as a newbie I should have seen the tailgate was put up but #$%@#
