Flagstaff Micro Lite 25FBLS Owners Group, 2511s welcome too.

Background: We purchased a new 25FBLS about two months ago. Did two shakedown trips and spent hours going over things to adjust what was missed at the factory-dealer and to perform a few modifications that we needed. More on that later.

So here we are 2200 miles into our first long trip with our 2FBLS and have had zero problems until today (other than a missing porch light lens) . Click image for larger version

ID:	213711After setting up camp and settling in for dinner I noticed that where the refrigerator wall meets the slide out wall the two walls have pulled away about 3/8”. It only happened in the center like maybe the exterior wall has bowed out and pulled three screws out that anchored the fridge wall. Has anyone experienced this with their 25FBLS or 2511s?

So here’s an update to our slide out problem. We made it home without to many issues. The outside wall of the slide is bowed out almost 1/2” from top to bottom nearly its entire length which is why the fridge wall pulled away from it. The sealant that was applied to the inside of the refer cabinet to seal the trailer off from exhaust fumes held on to the vinyl wall covering and separated it from the slide out wall. In a couple of places the sealant did come away from the wall so there is definitely the possibility of carbon monoxide getting into the trailer when using the gas feature.

When we got home and I was cleaning and washing the trailer I discovered a stress crack in the lower corner of the front windshield. This was a fear I had from the very beginning with this type of windshield.

I took the trailer to the dealer today so that they could take pictures and videos and send them to the factory to get advice on how to proceed with slide out repairs and to replace the front window.

Any contact numbers for factory warranty people at Forest River/Flagstaff. I think I’ll call and see what they think the problem is.

Unfortunately on our return trip home, three days from home my wife tripped leaving the bathhouse at one of the campgrounds and face planted in the gravel parking lot. Monday she goes in to repair a fractured eye orbit.

On a positive note here are a few modifications we made to the trailer before we left on our trip. Shelf reinforcement below the TV and additional shelves in the wardrobe closet and behind the TV. Also hinged the counter top extension.

Insulated the bottom of the bed to isolate it from the unheated and uninsulated pass through storage. Click image for larger version

Looks nice. What is the name of the insulation material you used and where did you buy it?

I’m not sure but I think I purchased it at Lowe’s. It’s not the highest r-value but it should do what I expect. This was 1” which fits up and into the aluminum frame offering a little protection to the foam. I couldn’t find a better r-value with foil. I also chose this because I felt the foil side would reflect the heat radiating into the trailer. I cut it to friction fit and used styrofoam construction adhesive holding each piece in place with scraps of the foam wedged between the foam and floor. I replaced the luan panel on the vertical wall after insulating the wall. In addition to this foam I used spray foam everywhere there was a hole that penetrated either a wall or the floor for both insulation and to keep critters out. So every accessible drain, vent or wire hole was spray foamed including under cabinets, in walls and the shower.
