Columbus water leak.

Just bought a new 375 columbus had it a week and the drain line for the bathroom sinks has a small leak. Call dealer I bought it from and they told to bring it in but I'm about 6 hrs away from there working. Called a place in Amarillo that sold forest river and they told me they couldn't work on it cause they didn't sell that particular brand. What else can I do to get this took care of?

Isn't that the point of a warranty is so you don't have to work on something yourself?

Will sure be a lot cheaper to fix yourself, when you consider fuel cost and aggravation to get it to someone that's really not interested in fixing. If I took mine in for everything wrong with it over the last 7 months of ownership, I still would not have spent one night in it. We live in ours, so taking to dealer is not an option 99% of the time.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

The drain lines on all the sinks and shower need to be checked/tightened. This can be done by hand, no tools needed. Takes about 7 minutes start to finish, total.

Have a mobile tech come to you to have it fixed under warranty repair. You can coordinate this with your selling dealer and the mobile tech. You can find mobile techs via craigslist services and https://www.facebook.com/groups/mobilervcompaies/

Our Columbus had a small leak as well, I found the trap had come unscrewed, I tightened it up and it has been good to go since.

It is absolute BS from the dealer saying they cannot work on your trailer becasue you did not buy it there. 100% BS lie. Tell them to pound sand, ans that you will not consider them on your next purchase. Let FR know that a dealer they have contracted too is refusing to perform warranty work. jerks!

For those saying different. What if you were transferred across the country shortly after purchase?? Are you SOL becasue you now live 2000 miles away from you dealer.... did not think so..
