I was checking back to see how the repairs have been going, not as many reports as I was hoping to see. So far I have only towed my Windjammer 3008W from the dealer to home, but I am keeping an eye for any signs of a problem. Keeping my fingers crossed that the issue has been resolved.

I was considering purchase of a 2011 model 3065W when I discovered this thread. The dealer got me in touch with Rockwood. It was explained that just a specific series of that trailer had the problem. That floorplan had been built in a 5th wheel and it was determined that the wheel placement was too far forward in the TT version. The one I was looking at was beyond that S/N run where the wheel placement had been modified.

I made the purchase based on that and so far am very happy with the trailer.

When they do the repairs on the 3065W they also move the axles back 8 inches.

Crack at the slide out

My 3065 was the same, I was able to work directly through my dealer and it was repaired... I love it, better than new.

I did go to the factory to pick it up and was able to talk directly with the production manager, he said they started making changes when they found the first crack and made a series of, I beleive 4 or 5 changes. He said this was not a "across the board problem" so it was a little hard to pin point. He said several came in with added hitches and racks and felt this may have contributed to it but was not 100% sure, he advised not to add weight onto the back of the light weight trailers, so be carefull. He said with the changes made they have not had any of the issues with any built after Feb 2011.

Thought you would find this interesting...

Warming up in the south, looking at heading to the Rockies this spring.

I just bought a new leftover 2011 3065w a couple weeks ago. Does anyone know where I can find the date of manufacture? I want to see if mine is one of the affected ones. If so, maybe I can have the axles moved back and prevent the cracking.

Thanks Big Red for the info. I just discovered a crack in our 3065 and have contacted Doug and he said they would take care of it Was your repair satisfactory and do you have a picture of the curb side? How did they move the axle back without getting into the slide?
Thanks for your help.

Too late...I just got back from a camping trip last weekend and discovered the crack over the rear ds slideout. Guess I will be contacting Doug for warranty repair. This bites...

Anyone considering a pre-2012 model of this trailer can have the dealer contact the factory to verify if it is one built after the mods. No pain.

My temporary pain is leaving it at my Dealer on Saturday. Hope it gets fixed like the others that have had to have the crack fixed. I trust they will take care of it.
