we own a 2016 Flagstaff V Lite model 27VRL. We love the trailer. our problem is that the front bedroom slide has had the front corner of the slide break off and the metal tear because the brace underneath broke while traveling. this happened on two different long trips last year and the repairs were two months apart at $500 for each repair ($1000 total). our dealer cannot figure out what is going on and says that no one else has had this problem. we noticed that on the new 2019 trailers they now have a slightly heavy plastic brace on the under side of the slide corners. has anyone else had this problem with the braces breaking and the corner of the slide breaking off and if you have, what did the dealer do to correct the problem. we have had several travel trailers and have have never had this problem with slides on them.

First, welcome! There are lots of people here who can help you out. You may have to post a picture of what is happening. If your dealer can't figure it out there are lots of mobile and independent techs that probably can.

To anticipate your question...

Posting pics is easy from a computer. Use the paper clip icon and upload up to five photos per post from files on your computer hard drive...
