They can't be serious! This is an instructional video on how to repair these collapsed nose caps? What's going to push the dents back out?

Is there any way we can contact Forest River without going through a dealer?

The video shows the repair guys stuffing the foam under the cap but not how they got the dents out. Could be the cap is so thin that the styrofoam itself pushes the dent out. What holds the foam in place? Looks like it would work it's way down the nose and all of a sudden the dent is back. Looks like a DIY with a good glue.

After 3 weeks, F/R authorized a dealer repair to our 2014 8289WS. We're waiting on parts to arrive. Dealership has been professional and communicated well during this episode. We're hoping the fix is reliable--involves pulling the front cap and re-in forcing the supporting structure, I believe.

Not according to the video I got from from forest river. All they do is take it apart at the seam in the roof and stuff styrofoam in it. Pm me your email and I will send a copy of the video.

About 2 months after purchase (in May) after reading about this problem on the forum, and subsequent personal inspection of the RV.
Pics were submitted to the dealer and forwarded to F/R.

Dealer here in Arkansas has so far been cooperative and supportive.

I understand from the forum what the fix might entail..( loosen the cap from the roof and provide additional styrofoam stuffing)... hope it works. The maintenance guys in the dealer shop here seem to be pretty savvy; If anyone can make this fix work, it's my guess they can.

I do not have any dents in the front cap yet, but I was on a step ladder yesterday cleaning the bugs off and waxing the cap, There is a lot of give when rubbing wax on/off so my fear is that it will just be a matter of time. I hope to be able to mention it to a rep at Goshen.
