Sorry - It is the norm and far more than "occasional".
I know you and the others you mention have had very real problems but you are a small sampling of the population of hybrid owners.
How do I know this? Because, as much as we like to think FRF is a good chunk of all FR trailer owners, we probably are not even a representative sample.
Just look at the volume of new units sold by FR this year alone. Through only June of this year, FR sold 39,794 towable and 3,769 motorized units [source
] (and this is just one-half of one year
). Our forum is 48,508 members strong with many having been here more than one year. As you can see, the industry is huge in relative comparison to our membership.
Also, I think that most trailer owners 1) are not on this site or any others and, if they are, are certainly not on a regular basis. 2) Happy owners do not start threads telling us what they don't have going wrong (usually) nor do they regularly post their good experience to a thread where another is having problems.
Its important to stick to facts and I believe the facts (and subsequent logic) is pretty strong that most owners are not on this forum (because there is not a need for them to search for solutions to problems they do not have). In other words - most do not have the leaks you have experienced.
