Rockwood Windjammer 3001 bedroom slide tears vinyl
After only a few months with our new 3001W we noticed that the end of the bed caught the vinyl at the floor vent and ripped it as the slide went out. We have a 2013 so I don't know if anything changed in that area from previous years or if it is just a minor variation in the slide in our unit. We have the minimal carpet option so to repair it with no seams (front to back) they would have to cut it out and when replaced quarter round would have to be added throughout. The dealer also opted to carpet the bedroom instead. We agreed with the carpet option. The dealer is also installing rollers under the corners of the bed so it will not slide on the floor covering anymore.
Given the impact of a tear in the vinyl like this, I wanted to inform others so maybe a preventitive step (like rollers) could be taken beforehand to avoid the problem.
I asked the dealer to go through their Forest River contacts and recommend some design change in the future. I am also going to contact Forest River.
