New Solera Lineup

Hi, Would it be possible to have a sub forum dedicated to the new Solera... Because of the repurposing of the name again , it gets confusing as to which Soleras are being discussed
Thank you, and Hello as Im new...

If, when people post, they just include the year and model of Solera being discussed, there would not be any confusion. The message body, the signature, and the profile can all be used to describe the Solera in question.

We have enough trouble as it is with people posting in a less than ideal forum category. For example, people will post asking for say Forester, Coachmen, Sunseeker, or ISATA model coach specific help, but put the question in the Mercedes Benz Chassis forum even though the question has absolutely nothing to do with the MBS chassis. I think the more forum choices you have, the messier it will get.

Sunseekers are/were built on 4 different chassis models but we manage to keep them all straight in the Sunseeker forum, as long as the year/model is specified.

1# Not really, don't know what they are and have never seen.
#2 I cannot see any point in trying to comprehend FR marketing setup.

I bought a 2023 Solera 32dsk on e450 chassis to replace our RV. Looks like Solera was on MB chassis at some point. I do not mind hunting for info.

I do not know how to put make model in messages.

It would not let me message you. Do you have slow water tank fill? I use a long washing machine hose on end of filter to fill. Think piping/vent to tank wonky.

You just did put you make and model in your message. It’s also up to other posters to identify their model when asking model specific questions, but not everyone does. It is a constant problem that doesn’t go away.

Thanks for advice. Found that my RV is same floorplan as Forrester 3011ds. Even found answer on water fill I had.

Overall after 4 trips I am impressed with unit layout and effectiveness. Though I had no concerns/issues with old v-10, the v-8 seems to be a move forward. Pulls trailer with same ease as v-10.

Had old RV almost 7 years, amazing how much stuff accumulated over time. I found all kinds of stuff I had not seen for years. Even wife had accumulated 30 towels and 9 sheet sets.

The newer Solera ilneup have many new appliances etc... that are not on previous model years. Forest river should have rebadged them but they decided to rerun the name again. I will just make sure i add year in front of posts...not many units out there so far for anyone to help with specific model questions
I've gone through one tt, 2 C's, 3 A's, and now downsizing to this unit as it has alot of promise for our lifestyle.
