233s

Hello I just got my 2013 233s back from dealer today, they had replaced the front bunk door due to the rivets being pushed in to far and bending the frame. I am very picky about my things, so they repaced the front door with an updated model from 2014, it looks much bulkier and has a different decal in it than the rest, wondering if I could at least get forest river to change the decal to the older year or change the other two to the newer style? Also they replaced my outside table cause the last one separated all the way around the outside, but now they gave me a different color one? I'm going to call tomorrow and see if they can order me a new one the same color as my old one, I assume they just took one out of another unit. They also had to replace the awning skin, looks all wrinkly as on right now but they say it will work itself out while sitting in the sun :/ I asked them to fix the wiggly kitchen table but didn't do anything about that. Gonna ask again tomorrow when I call, they did an ok job on the door but you can tell its different and has been replaced. Silicone from the factory looks way better than dealer did it ...

Did they replace your door at the dealer or did they send it back to the factory? Reason I ask is I need all 3 mine replaced.

The dealer did it, why are you getting all 3 replaced? Under warranty ?

I haven't reported the problem yet because I want to keep camping while the weather is good but all 3 of my doors are bending at the hinge. I read another thread where a guy had the same exact problem and they replaced his door so I figure I will have to have the same.

You should report the problem as soon as possible, They take 4-6 weeks to even get the parts in, you will notice that the if the hinge starts to bend that the seal on the top pf the door will be slightly visible, when they replace the door it will most likely be an updated version, a newer style door, I just got my door installed and it rained out here and the seams are leaking quite a bit so im hoping the others are right and they just have to season in a few times get wet and then dry, My other two bunks have never leaked at all sisnce ive owned it so i dunno. Good luck

This thread is confidence inspiring. Yikes! All three doors?

I guess we all need to keep an eye on our hinges to make sure they are not bending :/ mine have a lot of play in them, you can move the door up and down a little when the doors are open, seems as if the rivets are a little loose

My hinges are not bending, it's the corner of the doors....exactly like the pics in this thread.

But it is happening on all three doors and my 233s is a 2013 model.
