Forest River HTT Bunkend Field Fix Kit

Hi all,

Just wanted to make you aware of a free Bunkend Field Fix Kit which Forest River is sending these days. The fix kit is meant to fix the leaky bunkdoors which some of us "lucky" campers have experienced (how did I draw the short straw).

Anyways, the kits adds a seal to the bunkend door, and if needed replaces the hinges, and lower bunkend U-Channel (while adding an new seal), and also has a replacement for the rubber dam which attached to the bed and the TT. In my case, I just added the bunkdoor seals and hope that fixes everything since the other components are still in good shape.

Anyways, just wanted to let you know. Contact Gregg Rollins at the following email address if you have a leak problem: grollins@forestriverinc.com

congrats on getting yours.

my dealer is still waiting for mine to come in. FR sent the wrong kit when the dealer requested the kit you have. FR apparently just sent new rubber seals, not the full kit.
my dealer is still waiting for Gregg to get the kits shipped.
this was supposed to be fixed when my Roo was still under warranty. since FR sent the wrong kit, my dealer is supporting me and fought FR to get the correct kits sent.

Here is a link to the pictures and instructions which came with the kit I mentioned. I had found the link initially through RV.NET but Forest River sent me the same exact pictures in a follow on email.

I did not replace the hinge or U-Channel yet. I only added the seal to the bunkend door. In the picture you will see a black seal but the one which comes with the kit, at least in my case, was white.

I need some help guys. They sent me a kit today for my 2005 21SS.

I received three white seals that go on the outside edges of the bunk door.

Two black rubber seals.

One white channel thats different from the one on my camper.

One flat white hinge with sealer on one side only.

One large piece of white rubber that goes between the door and camper shelf.

Did not get any trim to hold the rubber seal to the camper shelf.

My hinge is much longer on one side than the other and is L shaped.

The hinge mounting surface on my camper slopes down. It is not flat. Should I use the flat hinge it will reposition my door down and it will not fit the hole any more.

My rear door has a flat hinge but my front bunk door is different.

Unless I.m missing something this kit will not work on my camper.

I e-mailed Greg but did not get an answer that made any sense.

Can any one that installed this kit help.

See pictures.

Thanks, Don

Just got a reply from Forest River engineer, I do not use the flat hinge or the U channel on my Roo. I do use every thing else. I am removing my original hinge and replacing all the butyle plus adding some extra and re-caulking the bottom of the door and a few other places. Should fix my leaking.

Thanks for this post! I have a 2004 Surveyor that has a leaking front bunk. I have had it in for service for two months now and they haven't been able to fix it. Hopefully, this kit is available for my unit and will take care of the problem. I have sent this info to the dealer and sent Gregg an email as well.

I received a reply from Greg and he told me I need to contact Surveyor and provided me the number. The number he gave is for Forest River. Am I missing something? I have a 2004 Forest River Surveyor SV190T that has a leaking front bunk and was hoping that this Field Fix would work on my unit. If anybody knows, or can provide any additional information on who to contact to find out, please let me know.

Thanks!
Dave

Far as I know Greg is the warranty Guy for Forest River travel trailers. I gave him my serial # and the bunk door leak info and he had Tod Stringfellow send me the kit. I have a 2005 Rockwood Roo 21SS.

Greg Rollins--574-642-2640 ext-225
grollins@forestriverinc.com

Tod Stringfellow--parts--574-642-2640 ext 125
tstringfellow@forestriverinc.com

And your door is probably like mine, you will not need the U channel or the flat hinge, but you need the rest of the kit.


Plus I went to Lowe's and purchased a 96" piece of trim to hold down the rubber dam to the camper shelf.

Stopped by Family Campers and got two rolls of butyl rubber seal to seal the hinge real good

Went to a local hardware store and got a tube of GE butyl rubber caulk for sealing everything else on the door.

I hope to get this done tomorrow if it doesn't rain. It came a flood yesterday.

Don
