After my slide leak debacle https://www.forestriverforums.com/fo...ns-200305.html
(that's still surviving on a temp repair), I only noticed this while installing a vent cover last week. It seems as if the plywood roof structure was cut short, and so was the rubber roof membrane. As a result, the plywood roof was exposed to ALL of the rain, most likely since new.
Where is the non-existant quality at the factory, and I explicably asked for someone at the dealership before I left for Nashville to go around the trailer and look for any other trouble spots. Soon as I saw it, I covered it up with a piece of eternabond tape, but the damage has been done. At the very least the membrane will have to be removed to be able to replace the rotted wood underneath. And...I did not paying for a brand new trailer to have a patched roof.
I was just starting to get over the slide mess as I truly like this trailer (at least the floorplan) a lot, but having to continually pay for this unit with two major leaks is making me ill and having buyers remorse.
The same pics along with the vin sticker was sent to the dealer to get a claim started...etc.
And the following is NOT AT ALL related to Forest River....
While driving home from Nashville a few weeks ago it was still dark when I got on the interstate and immediately I got behind a mixer truck. I heard a few tings of gravel being kicked off of the tires and backed off and changed lanes. The next day when I went to wash the bogs off the front of the truck and trailer, I got mad as hell when I realized it was cement spatters from said truck. Lots of elbow grease and chemicals, but they are clean now. The fresh wax surely helped make that happen.
