Sorry you're having issues with your new Roo. Hopefully it's a seasoning issue with the bunk ends.


@ Weezer - like the pool noodle idea for the microwave, forgot that the plate could pop open the microwave door, I guess we've been lucky so far it's not broken. Especially with our wonderful michigan roads!

The microwave thing happened to me also. Now I take the glass out and place on the dinette cushion. Only happened once when I realized things need to be held down in a trailer as those suckers bounce around back there. The suspension is not like what we experience in our TV's.

I guess the shocks on the trailer do help, we've never had a problem with ours and it is a rear kitchen. Not a bad idea with the pool noodle tho'.

X4, I've been lucky but can easily see that happening. Thanks for the tip.

DW has an item on her "move the trailer checklist" which reads
  • Stow microwave dish
She hides it in a drawer full of dish towels. Works for us!

I never thought about the microwave dish bouncing around and it never came up during the PDI. It makes sense that it bounces around making it prone to breakage. I guess I have a new project and will pickup a pool noodle before they disappear for the season.

Ive hard issues with new Roo also. Old camper was a Forest river and In 10 years never a problem. Same issue with weather strip, air mattress back ordered 8 weeks, fender on slide out came loose on one side, molding holding canvas to bunk is bent and coming off. I guess they dont make them like they did 10 years ago. Oh, I forgot, the fridg is so loud and almost runs constantly. CW will get the list when our season is over in November. Good luck with all your issues!

I too found my microwave plate on the floor upon returning on my last trip. Wasn't sure how it got out, just assumed that the door wasn't quite shut tight the last time it was used. I will now travel with the plate separately or do the noddle thing.

I also had the small end cap near the couch fall off on the first trip. Apprently, the little tiny staples don't hold very well. I had to reglue and use brad nails to secure it.

The wife now stores the temporary micro dish in a drawer. Maybe I'll try the noodle trick!! Great idea!!

As far as the bunks, several people have mentioned the seasoning... I had no idea and was not told. I didn't have any issues in the rain our previous weekend out, but they were 30 min downpours and not an all night soaking rain. I will have to go thru the manuals when I get the camper home to check on what it says that the dealer neglected to mention.
