You might be right on that, but what would worry me would be if my unit was out of warranty. Nobody should have to pay to have this done and should only be done by a dealer. I find it hard to believe that the heat of the day would weaken that cap to dent that much. Since they are making this repair video they know that they screwed up with something, and even if it did not happen to others they should also be brought in to add the repair so it wouldn't happen later to them. Also atleast you got an answer and brought this to there attention. Good Luck and I hope they come up with a satisfactory answer for all you owners....

This thread prompted me to check my rig on what turned out to be the exact 1 year anniversary of our purchase. Today which is one year and 2 days after purchase date, I stopped by my dealers shop and showed them the pictures. They were already aware of the issue and told me they have already replaced 3 Rockwood nose caps.
I'm waiting to hear how they will deal with mine.

same dents

Just got back from a 4500 mile, 4 week trip through the west and noticed a similar dent in the front cap of my 8282WS. It seems to have appeared during a day of driving into a 20-30 mph headwind for 6 hours. The temp was in the 90s that day as well. Guess I'll start down the warranty trail now and see what happens.

Everything else worked flawlessly the whole trip. Only had to tighten the ceiling fan.

Love the unit.

We'll I herd from Roger from Forest River, they said they had the video done and that they were sending it to my dealer to have the repair done. We will see.

I have the video on the fix but can't seem to post it. But all they do to fix it is take the cap loose from where it meets the roof and stuff to pieces of styro foam in. If anyone wants to see the video just pm me your email and I will send it. Pretty lame fix if you ask me.

I agree
Stuffing some Styrofoam in there is a butcher job
What happens if it breaks into pieces
There needs to be a better support system than that
