Yes - I got a photocopy of my debit card receipt, plus another sheet with the title "Forest River, Inc. Additional 12-Month Optional Protection Plan For Travel Trailers & Fifth Wheels".

That sheet has my name and address, plus the unit serial number...dealer, dealer address, etc. At the bottom it's signed by Forest River with the beginning and ending dates.

Here's a link to a blank version of the paperwork you'll get.

Hello, this forum has been a great resource. I'm very close to finally ordering a Columbus 320RS after first seeing it at the RV show last Jan.

I'm glad to hear that people are happy with the unit and i look forward to a new camper ! Thanks

Having problems with lights inside Columbus 320RS. The ones that work with dimmer switch will not go off if battery is on. The light switch is in off position but lights stay on and in fact burnt some out already. We took to shop for other problems (not lights)....those problems were repaired.....parked for a couple weeks....found a dead battery....recharged battery and noticed when we hooked battery up the lights were on and would not turn off so we assume that we did not notice the lights burning the entire time it was parked. Getting really tired of traveling to shop (long drive) for repairs.....have been three times. It seems like every time we start to go camping, we have more problems. I could list the numerous problems that we have had to deal with, but I won't bore you. We have always heard that Forest River is one of the best companies.....I am beginning to have my doubts. I fell in love with the Columbus and I am trying my best to remain that way, but it is VERY, VERY HARD!!! Has anyone else had these light problems? Thanks for the info.

I can fully appreciate the long drive to a dealer. Mine is 3 hours away. The dealer had my unit for a full month. The good news is they cleared my punch list except for the sensors on the tanks. Replaced both AC units.

Tank issues: The black still reads 2/3 after draining and flushing, spraying the inside of the tank with the grey wand connection on a hose. We have been using the Geo Method. On the trip home I plan to have 1/3 tank of water and a heavy mixture of liquid detergent and water softener. Hopefully that will clear the sensors. I will do this in both Black 1 & 2. With a 6 hour drive to the next overnight stop we should have adequate time to slosh around and clean the sensors. I hope.

Only problem this trip is I haven't painted yet. That's on the list today. Rain storms permitting.

Happy travels.

Well you created your own light problem and battery problem by not using the battery disconnect . Proper use and a good walk thru of operation is always a plus

So Christopher Columbus....you are telling me that by not turning the battery switch off, we created the light problem. Wow Really??? We now have it hooked up to electricity and we just found out that the AC will not power up, the Frig will not come on and the outside radio will not come on. We did do a walk through at the dealer after other repairs were done which were leaky windows, shower door leak, ceiling trim buckling, black tank flush problem and other problems that had absolutely nothing to do with electrical. Of course, the dealer did not turn on AC or outside radio or lights, during the walk thru because that was not in the list of repairs. Sorry if I sound a little frustrated but getting ready to go camping on Monday, Aug 27 but definitely can't go without AC or Frig. Just wondering where in the world do we go from here.. Could this possibly be an easy fix?? It sure doesn't sound like it to me.
