Will do! It is going in next week for that and about a half dozen other things that need to be fixed but right now the leak is our biggest concern. Wonder if and how long it was doing this before be took delivery on it.

Just dropped it off last night and we most likely won't get it back

awning, water tank sensor, no heat in the forward bathroom and
replacing the molding around one of the wheels so we told them to
keep it till they had it all done.

After the storms that went through last night, we are dry! Yay! We put the slide in to protect the awning from the predicted hail, so we haven't tested it with the slide out yet, but hopefully all the caulking around what had looked sealed has worked.

So far ours has only leaked with the slide in no problems when it is out. Hope to have it back on Monday with an answer to the problem.

Slide Leak and Camping World Service Dept Rant

So on June 22nd we dropped the coach off at Camping World on a pre-scheduled appointment for the leaking slider and a few other items to be repaired. We told them we needed it back by the 30th.
We started calling yesterday am to see if it was ready for pick up and as of 3pm and several calls still did not have an answer so we decided to drive down there. (Approx 30 miles)
Once we got in the service dept it became pretty clear not much had been fixed. Said they could not find the leak in the slide. We had a sprung compartment door the answer was pretty much that is just the way they are sometimes. If you remember I had an earlier post about the fresh water tank either not emptying or the sensor reading wrong. They said they filled and emptied it twice and it was reading fine. A few other items we also got a song and dance on.
The main reason it went in besides the leak was that when we picked it up there was a broken piece of molding over one of the tires that needed to be replaced – they had the part but had not changed it out yet. That was not done either. Supposedly the part was wrong but oddly it was not on the work order either.
At this point my husband was turning purple so we asked for the Service Manager. Well he went outside with us immediately saw what was wrong with the sprung door and took pics so he could order the part. By the way the door now also has a new 5” scratch on it and a dimple in the outer molding that frames it.
Next he got on a ladder to look at the slide and in less than 3 minutes found a crack in the seal that was pretty much right where we told them the leak was.
Now for the water tank he gets the shop foreman to come out and show us how to empty the tank. Well after over 30 minutes of crawling around under the coach he admits he cannot get it to empty correctly either. Interesting as supposedly they had already done it a couple of times. Yup there is more – there were a couple other items not taken care of either. Only thing they supposedly fixed was the no heat in the middle bathroom which we did not check yet to see if they did.
So the coach is still there they are going to try and get some of this done and will deliver it to us later today – we’ll see.
Sorry for the rant but we have had a few Coach/RV and trailers from here and the service is always pretty much like this. No excuse for it. Logic dictates that we would go some place else with our business the next time and we would but unfortunately this all we have within a reasonable driving distance in our area.
Makes me crazy having it tied up that long and having to drive the RV and the car back and forth a couple of times every time it needs to go back for service because they did not fix it right the first time.

So we just got a call about the water tank. Evidently there was a piece of hose stuck in the drain causing it to not empty. So makes me wonder how they filled and drained it twice yesterday. Hmmm think someone is fibbing.

over time you will have 'junk' build up in the water tank.... dirt/fungus/what ever was in the fill hose will be flushed into the tank where it will stay, until your water pump sucks it up and you drink it....

Still leaking

So we are going to be taking the coach back for the 4th time for the
leak on the slide they still can't find it. Forest River is working with us
now hopefully they will get this figured out. Very frustrating! It leaks here every time it rains but evidently they can't get it to leak when they have it at the dealers.
