Never any problems.

Living in Rocklin, you shouldn't need to remove them during the winter.

Let me guess who you bought from,
Best RV!
Living in the Sonora area there is no such thing as a "local" RV dealer. Our search started with Best but we were so unimpressed with them we went all the way from Fresno to Sacramento. Having owned two pop-ups in the past we decided early that we didn't want a hybrid. Manteca was good and they really wanted to make a sale. The day we visited RVTravelworld we bought a Flagstaff on the spot. The walkthrough was thorough and it seems they must have done a good job on their inspection. 15 months later there have been no issues with our rig worth trip to the shop. Maybe we're just lucky or blessed but I would recommend them as a dealer and FR as a brand.

Yeah, we had researched long and hard and knew for a fact that the Roo 233S was our rig. We have owned several popups in the past and loved them so we knew what we were getting into. It became a matter of finding one somewhere within a 3-5 hour drive and that dramatically limited our options.

We looked at the equivalent floor plan with Jayco, and really like that brand. But ultimately they had a few minor things that pushed the Roo into a lock for us.

I did visit RV Travel World when I was evaluating traditional travel trailers and was impressed with the sales staff. They just didn't offer any hybrids.

I have a 2015 233s. In ours the battery disconnect is below the fridge. It's a peg that you pull out.
As far as the mattresses, I email Forrest river and was told the bars should be tucked in the fold of the mattress. There really isn't anything that holds the mattress in. The front bunk, the slide holds it in. The side bunk is the worse. We just deal with it.
