Re. rear stabilizer switch. Mine was stopping - wait a while - and would go again. It wasn't the switch. I lubricated the entire length of the screw mechanism with lithium grease - fixed the problem. Just lubricate every nom and then. K

Just left Topsail - enjoyed it a lot, but was too cold to do much. Better off waiting until repairs are made and this cold snap passes. Also camped at St. George. Very nice area.

IF FR authorizes your dealer to get the roof materials from aftermarket, that'll cut the time down to probably two weeks. If they must order through FR parts, hold tight as it will probably be a month or better before materials arrive...

I sure hope not. We're needing some camper time bad! Are the membranes not a normal stock item?

Sure are,the F/R factory has (500' Rolls) in stock! The trick is shipping to Tenn.then rolling it out to (Warm Up) to get the (Folds/Wrinkles/Bubbles) out of it for Proper Install! Going to be hard to do with the Temps we are having now! Youroo!!

Another week of leaks wouldn't stop me. Probably would be dry weather anyway but I'd have a tarp handy

Not sure how big a deal it is but I read where they could replace a section of the roof the entire width of the RV and how ever long it needed to be joining the two with what they called a three inch lap joint. There must be a special way to bond the old with the new.

We have not been able to find any leaks from this. Strange. Only thing I can figure is that the membrane wraps around and down a little ways in the front. We just noticed the caulk pulling back and the bubbles.

I plan to call them in the morning to see if they've gone beyond the point of us getting it back for a week. Would have called today, but was very busy all day.

We like Ft Clinch, Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach ... all that area too.
