2012 Sabre RETS

So the saga continues - now the ground fault plug in the bathroom does not work !!!
The igniter switch for the hot water tank keeps going out ....

WHAT NEXT ????

This is really sad - I am so disappointed in this trailer ... We had researched that FR was the best ... Apparently the Palomino series was not ....

Is it under warranty ?

The majority of us on this forum love our palomino sabre!

Forest river does not make the gfci nor do they make the water heater so you can't blame the quality on forest river but the manufacturer of the actual product.

There's basically two major brands of water heaters with the most used being suburban, any camper you buy is going to have the same units.

Well said, Turbs. Even with a looming factory return for my camper, I'm still very happy with it overall.

TheTods, if I were you- I would try to contact the warranty manager for Palomino/Sabre and see if he can help you out.

So happy to hear that someone has had good luck with the Sabre - we are 2 provinces away from home and what we need, seems to be breaking down ...
Although the components are different ,,, they still make up ONE camper - one that seems to be falling apart !!!
