Sorry, are you saying they will perform this 'fix' on a unit that is out of warranty?
If so, do you know who I should speak to or who I should get my local dealer to speak to?

thanks.

This is part of the Goshen rally service they do. I am not sure how they do this at the dealer level.

I got the nose cap fix applied to my new 8289 today at the FROG rally, along with nine other problems that the dealer couldn't get to for at least six weeks. The factory guys took less than two hours total. I heard of several fixes and repairs on out of warranty rigs but I believe that only happens at the rally.

How does it look? Did they do the foam fix?

I have a slight dent on my front cap. I thought I had hit a limb or something but now it sounds like it came that way. I'm not concerned with it and will forego any "fix" unless it starts leaking. I really, really don't like fixing something unless it's really broke, and I don't consider this broke. Sometimes, the fix is worse than the problem.

Pulled ours out of storage for a getaway to the coast, and yes I have the dents. Called RVW and spoke to Laurie. She requested pictures and is forwarding on for warranty fix. I did purchase the 2nd year warranty so hopefully will have no problem getting this taken care of.

Yes they are. Once FR approves the repair they will
arrange for a local repair. I'm in the Weatherford Texas area.

Please let me know if/when the repair is authorized.
We, too, bought the second year warranty but when we asked to have the dents fixed the local dealer said the repair was not covered under the second year warranty.

That second year has expired now but perhaps if Forest River approves yours I could ask again at our dealer...

Thanks.
