As with any new car, you will have some bugs to kill. Make a list of your concerns and call the dealer for repairs when you get back home.
Bought a new 2013 Salem Hemisphere June 1st. This weekend will be the third time I have taken it back to the dealer for repairs. I have had a list of 5-7 things each time. My major problems was on the second camping trip. 1) Rear tire Exploded out the side wall, 2) back slide motor jammed and slide sticking out 3 inches.
Third trip major problem among others, back slide motor Jammed and slide again sticking out 3 inches. Had to drive it many miles this way.
Also my clean water tank self siphons out more than 1/3 of the water when NOT moving and All of the water when moving. "Coach-net" tech says that this is fixable because the breather hose has fallen over and needs to be pulled back up in place and secured in place to form a loop. Dealer does not want to remove the bottom sheeting to look at the tank....
Does anyone have a direction phone number to Forest River?
Three camping trips in two months and three times back to the Dealer
