rockwood 8280 arrived but slide broke
Well after waiting since mid April, our 2014 Rockwood 8280 platinum edition has finally arrived. The pre delivery inspection went fine and we hooked on and drove the 4 hr drive home with the ecoboost performing as expected. Once home, I unhooked, leveled the trailer and started to extend the main slide when I heard ratcheting sounds. I immediately retracted it back in hearing the same sounds. Upon inspection, appears the slide is off its tracks or something is busted. One bottom corner sticks out about 2 inches the and top corner sticks out about 1 inch. One inside corner is even with the floor and the other corner is up about 1-2 inches. Called Forest River yesterday about 4pm and left message on answering machine but no returned call. Will try again Monday and see if they can suggest a local dealer to work on it (no local Rockwood dealers available in my area). Hopefully I can find someone local to work on it in a short timeframe so we can do some camping with it. Other then that, nice trailer and hope this is the first and last thing to break.
