Roof membrane = no Destin trip

Scheduled a trip to Topsail in Destin, leaving this weekend. I dropped my Flagstaff 8528RKWS off 2 weeks ago to have the roof looked at, and now I'm finding out that the entire membrane has to be replaced. Tech says they fill find out tomorrow when it will be received.

Really was looking forward to some warm weather, and not losing 2 nights deposit. Oh well, maybe it will work out.

Not sure if this is possible but can you sell your spot to someone else? I would buy it from you if I would be able to camp this week.

Yes, it's under warranty. Along the front end at the trim piece, the membrane pulled back and bubbled. The caulk line also pulled back, which is what made very noticeable.

I didn't take pics, but they did at the dealer and submitted them. The dealer didn't assess the repairs until after the unit had been there for over a week, so that's why we're so pushed for time now.

They say 2 days to repair once the parts are received.

They are also replacing the rear stabilizer switch, repairing the shower door, replacing a piece of interior trim, and trying to stop the freezer from frosting right at the door seal.

In your later Post you said they could replace the entire Roof in (2)days,after they receive the parts! That part about (PARTS) is their (Loop Hole)! Don't (Hold your Breath) that the Entire Roof will be replaced by (This Weekend)? Youroo!!

I'm not. I'll try to sweet talk them into a later date, but with spring break coming up, it will be hard to get a new reservation for a full week.
