You know Ben, I might just do that as it's got the vinyl starting to come off. I may make up my own. If so, I can easily make 2. What color cabinets do you have?

I just remembered, when I made the fascia for the slideout, I had issues with the long boards of board starting to warp. Probably best to make it out of cabinet grade birch plywood and either apply cherry or maple veneer or maybe just fabric or vinyl from Joann's. Will take photos of mine tomorrow. Mine is shorter than yours as my bathroom is also against the back wall.

It was 90˚+ inside the MH today. worked on a solution for overhead kitchen cabinet. Went back to bedroom and saw all the bubbles on the cornice. I was able to push them all in and they stuck for the most part. So, I guess I'm OK for a while.

Thx for offer and the picture of yours. I have a brother-in-law living with us and he is pretty handy with this type of work. We will work on it when we get back from our Mtn. Man rendezvous outing next week.

We just had our slide outs adjusted and fascia repaired on the kitchen/sofa slide out. It was practically falling off because the slide was coming in too far. It is so cheap and looks bad at the the top where the paper peeled off. You would think FR would have used a much nicer fascia instead of this paper vinyl thing. I would love to have real wood.

My fascia fell of onto the bed. It was bent and it snapped when I tried to straighten it. Ended up making my own out of cherry. I know, my friend has a Fleetwood Southwind and has beautiful full wood cabinets and fascia, not pressed board wrapped in vinyl.

Hey Ben, can you take a photo of the inside rear with the cornice removed as I wonder what it looks like and if the rear camera wiring is accessible. Thanks!

Sage, will take a photo tomorrow.

Just checked my phone album and see I already had a couple of photos from last week. If you need more, let me know.

Still working with CW at this point. Emailed a copy of the pictures I took of their roof sealing job to the service manager and he called me right away. He was so surprised on how bad the job looked that they want our unit back and to make it right. That's where we stand for now.

Did you have any intrusion inside rear closet. I'm dealing with that right now. I have some staining on the cedar veneer. I have resealed it twice. May have found the problem yesterday though. I checked the gutter on that side and it looked like they partially obstructed it with caulk at the factory which caused the water to back up and come down the side of the RV. Who would have thought you would have blocked gutter problems on a Motorhome.

Our unit is back in the shop right now fixing the lousy job they did a month ago. Didn't check the closet. Will look at it when we get it back in a couple of days and let you know if we see any damage there also .

Roof leak on rear cap - 3171DS

benagi: Sorry to hear of your difficulties. I had a leak last week in a 2 yr old Forester one month after a roof inspection by the dealer (Warranty Forever requirement - $200). I am concerned about rot and mold, but I wicked the water from the foam in the ceiling with paper towels and now have Eva-Dry units and damp rid in the shower where the leak was and see no evidence of moisture. Local dealer sealed the roof for less than $100. He said sooner or later they all leak. Not very comforting. After the rain stopped and I got home I found several other places that looked like they needed sealing and sealed them myself.

You may want to put a room dehumidifier in there and draw as much moisture from everywhere as you can.

Stagecoachdriver: make half a dozen or more. I am sure many of us who don't know how to do such things would gladly buy them from you. I have had to screw mine on since they want to almost fall off every time the slide is extended.
