Wildcat must of been built on a Friday Afternoon:-(

First time poster... Long time camper, this is our 3rd trailer... I have a 2004 Wildcat and I have come to the conclusion I'll be boating soon... My recent problem is the rear outside panel on the slide side was cut 1/4 inch to short and over the winter a 2 foot section popped out from the corner molding.. I had a local RV Tech check it out and he told me the whole panel was cut short and he'll have to replace the corner molding with something wider to cover the panel, just driving her down the road could cause it to pop out again. Also found out there's 2 circuit breakers just behind the batteries under the outside of trailer that are resettable... So if your slide cuts out and there's no juice at the hydraulic pump, check for the circuit breakers first... While your under there you might want to check the ground point on the frame... bad location and low quality screw... OK one more vent... I also found a very small section of roof plywood that was cut short in the front left corner under the roof skin... and there's so much more that turns me off from a FR product. Cut in floor, draw slides missing screws and misalign, hot water tank bypass value installed backwards, and I thought FR products were top of the line! And to top it off I wrote 2 letters just after I bought her in 04 and didn't even get a response from them, my opinion, very poor customer service....

I think that most manufacturers would be out of business in a flash if they had to put a 3 yr. warranty on them to give you time to discover all the concealed problems.
