Does anyone know where I can find a replacement part

Hi Guys,

We have a 2019 sunseeker 2860DS. The white panel that houses the furnace exhaust pipes to the left of the door is rusting up a storm. The screws are rusted and the panel is bubbling up and showing the rust. I called the dealer parts dept and they say they can't help. No reply from Forest River. Any ideas where I can get a new one?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Happy Camping!!

Here is one that looks pretty similar. Your cover has 2 more mounting holes drilled though? Iím not sure if they were added or original. Good luckÖ

There's probably a replacement available like posted above, but you need to know model number of your furnace.

If you can't find one I would simply repaint your current one. A little sanding spray rust killer on it, then paint with a good quality paint. I've had good luck with paint for car rims.

The screws are easy, take one to a hardware store and buy stainless steel screws.

The furnace door is supplied by Suburban the manufacturer of the furnace. They are easily available on line from RV parts houses as well as Amazon, ebay, etc.

Most of this has happened since EPA made companies go to water based paints back in the 90's. So your probably ahead of the game using a good quality rattle can of paint.

above poster is correct. this is a suburban furnace cover. I will get you the FR part number and you should be able to order from any FR Dealer. sorry that the dealer wasn't help. this is a standard part they should have been able to find.

Consider taking the new panel to an auto body shop and have them strip, prime, and paint it with quality automotive products before installing.

If you need to make additional mounting holes, do so before stripping/painting.

Use stainless steel screws (as noted above). You might also be able to find plastic (Nylon) screws.

And put Nylon or rubber washers on each screw before mounting. If you can't find anything else, get small flat faucet washers at Lowe's or Home Depot.
