That's what I had asked for, the trail air pin box. We shall see what they say. I haven't heard from the dealer since I spoke to them Friday. I plan to call for an update tomorrow.

What is the model number of the Trail Air pin box? I will be calling the dealer tomorrow and it would be great to have that info. Riznfall, I would contact Forest River directly. I was called back the same day. The phone number is on the back page of your recall notice.

I have talked to FR. Spoke to Calvin. I didn't ask for the trail air while on the phone with him. When I went to my dealer is when I asked about it. Maybe a call or another email to Calvin might help to persuade them a bit. Can't hurt.

Just wondering......And yes, they will be replacing our pin box.

mis labled , mis quoted , I say mis guided .
FR's fallback is always we mis printed the labels or mis printed the brochures . got the same response when it was stated as a 20,000 btu furnace as opposed to the actual 19,000 that came with the unit . this type of excuse needs to stop as it would never hold up in a court of law along with the we can change the specs when ever we want BS . yes they can change the specs when they want but not show one set of specs and then after a sale show another

As quickly as he backed up and said OK to my demand that I get what I paid for, I think they are seriously trying to avoid a class action suit. I was talking to an attorney friend and he's sure of it.

I used to be in insurance, and if a claim arose from an accident and we were overweight, the insurance company would NOT have to pay out. If the pin box failed due to too much stress from it being underweight, Forest River's liability would be huge!

They would rather give us fancier pin boxes than we had than deal with the blowback I'm sure.

I have a recall on my unit from forest river with the same stated issue of the GVW stickers are mis
Matched as yours is. I also have a secondary problem I believe to be related to this same issue. At the front left corner of my unit the siding is moving up and back down about a half an inch I have had it to my dealer and they were told by forest river how to reinforce it to stop the movement I picked it up and it still has the same problem this is a 38L12 touring Vengeance it is still under factory warranty I have only pulled this unit 4 times
Has any one else had problems with the front area moving on theirs ??

I had this issue with my Ultra-Lite and it was solved completely by the Flagstaff techs at the Goshen Rally. They removed 4 screws on each side and replaced them with MUCH longer screws (4 or 6 inches!) at an angle that paralleled the cap aluminum framing.

Some 3 years later, no more movement and the bottom seam seals are holding.
