Happy camping new year! Well, at least for my family. We got the Roo out this weekend (actually camped Weds thru Sat nights), de-winterized and re-stocked everything. Here's where my disappointment sets in. This is our third camping season with our 2011 233s. Since I got it in June 2010 I have had problems with the slide not working properly. In the shop at least 3-4 times. This past fall, my local dealer allegedly put on a new slide motor. It was (is) still under my extended warranty. Went to close the slide after my 4 nights of camping this weekend and, wouldn't you know it, slide would not close...same exact problem as before. The slide will start in a few inches and then start clicking. I have to go out and push in on the slide while someone pushes the button. After it gets over the "hump" it's fine.
Also, the seams where the bottom of the windows meet the tent material continue to seep through when it rains. It's not condensation. I have had them sealed, etc...to no avail. FR says it's material and it's just part of hybrid ownership. As someone that has owned several popups, I can't disagree more. Is anyone else having these problems, regardless of model? I absolutely love the camper, but have wasted so much time and money taking this to the shop (even under warranty) that I'm about done. Will be trying to contact FR and the dealer tomorrow to see what comes next. I'll try to update as I hear more, but would like to hear feedback and/or suggestions from others based on your experiences, as well. Sorry this ended up being long, but my fingers must have been moving as quickly as the steam coming out of my ears
