Could I ask my fellow 2102W owners to check their counters and confirm that they have no trim as well on the left side of the bathroom sink counter?
We have a 2011 2102w with all the trim. We got ours from a dealer in MN. The only thing wrong was the skirt on the slideout had a tear. Since we purchased at the end of Oct we winterized & they will fix it this spring! Can not wait to go camping!!!

Hi Hockey11,
You will love the 2102W. The dealer warned us to check the slide for sticks or small tree branches on the top before closing as it could tear the slide seal. We carry a broom and ladder now as part of our regular camp gear. Seems like a no brainer now, but for a first time slide out owner, a good tip. Couldn't wait till spring to break in our new rig, so we pulled it to Borrego Springs, CA over the holidays and dry camped for nine days (decided not to unwinterize for such a short trip). Plugged in a fireplace dvd and hung up a couple of Christmas stockings. Santa was very kind...

Hockey11,
Our skirt was torn as well. I think it gets caught in the bars that are on the sides of the couch when folding the couch back over. We had it repaired by an upholsterer. Simple fix really. Utah, good advice about the sweeping the slideout off before closing. An update on the trim in the bathroom. We looked at another 2012 unit and it too has no trim on the left side of the sink. Go figure!

Bathroom trim

Just stumbled onto this forum, and already found it helpful. We purchased a 2010 Windjammer 2102W during the Winter of 2009/2010. Hadn't heard anything about cleaning the top of the rear slide before retracting it! Thanks for the tip.
Bathroom counter trim.... we purchased our trailer in Northern California and it has a one-piece plastic trim on the left, back and right walls. If you do not have the trim in your rig, it would be very easy to install.
We have been on a few trips, mostly to the Monterey Bay area on the Central California Coast to attend the AT&T ProAm, enjoy the sights and food. We have only had one pesky problem. The trailer is equipped with a propane/CO2 detector, and it is super sensitive! Using hair spray will set it off! And the beeping sound is ear-splitting! Other than that, the trailer is exceptional.
This is our third trailer (started with a pop-up tent trailer in the late-70's and graduated to a 23' Cross Bunk floor plan in 1986 for the kids as they grew up) and find the Windjammer perfect for our needs. These newer units are lighter and better designed than ever. With all the features in this unit, it doesn't really qualify as "camping" when we go "camping."

Hi Ed,
Welcome to the forum. This is our third trailer too and agreed the 2102W is a great rig. Love the king bed slide out and large bathroom in the front v nose. We were camped near St. George, Utah at Snow Canyon State Park for the Huntsman World Senior Games last October. Needed to be up before sunrise for a race. Snow Canyon is a beautiful red rock state park, but the electric campsites are a little close to each other. While trying to be super quite, I set off the ear drum piercing smoke alarm cooking a high protein breakfast. It seemed to take forever to get the alarm unconnected and the 9v out. Lesson learned...

Slideout cable unraveled

Hi Scott,

Finally purchased a 2006 Dodge 5.9L diesel spring 2012. Took a trip to Oregon in September pulling the Windjammer and averaged 16.8 mpg. This truck is really the way to go compared with the Hemi 5.7L getting 10mpg.

Had one problem last Sept. with one of the slideout cables unraveling. Just one strand of the cable broke. I had to unravel it all the way and cut it off so it would not jam up into the pulleys. The slide still worked but I was biting my nails everytime we opened or closed it. Forestriver sent me a new cable and I had it replaced for about $200.

Hope all is well with you and Marley. We will not make the Skinny Tire this year but are headed to Solvang, Ca for a week of riding. Great roads and weather (usually) there.

Hi Yurev,
Congrats on the diesel. We are very happy with ours, but still annoyed by the price of diesel. Cable unravel? Shouldn't that have been covered under the warranty? Something I will remember to routinely inspect. We are headed to Moab this Friday for the Skinny Tire Festival. Plan to tandem bicycle 160 plus miles. Wish you could join us. March of 2014? I just built a website for tandems. Very scarce on content right now, but will post cycling pictures from Moab. Home - Tandemfolk Still a lot of snow on the ground in Northern Utah and dang cold. Looking forward to not wearing wool socks soon.
Be well
Scott and Marly

Yes, it was covered under warranty. Have fun in Moab and I will look for pics on your website!

I know this is an older posting , but I'm curious if any of you have replaced the onboard water filter cartridge. I'm looking to get what I need for the 2014 camping season, and it's on my list. I believe the original unit was a WaterPur cartridge. Can you get them at lowes or Home Depot?

Filter Replacement

Hi NHFire 152,
I used to use a charcoal filter by GE Part Number FXWTC rev.2. Unfortunately, I had one fail and release charcoal into the water system and clog the sink screens. I now use a paper household sediment filter by GE Part Number FXWPC. It works fine. Both are available at Home Depot or Lowes.
Good luck!
