Cab Bunk Separation

So in all our years of RVing, there is always that ONE THING that hits every rig we've ever owned. On our Freelander, it's this separation over the cab between the bunk and cab chassis.

It's always something and that's what makes owning these things so much fun. I've learned alot about engines, transmissions, fuel filters, pumps, roofing, sat tv, .....you name it.

This is for you other Freelander owners....you might want to check your cab roof line. Our 2018 only has 11500 miles on it, but it is 3 years old. It started out as squeaking between bunk and cab until something let loose. I'll let you know what I find as I tear into it.

Original estimate from dealer was over $700 and in their existence they had only had to work on 2 issues like this. So I calculate double that as I would have to pay to have them learn how to fix it.

No rant here.....just a deep sigh. Sorry about the pics....can't get them to rotate.

Woo HOO! Not that hard.

Unscrewed the trim. Fig 1

Exposed the gaps Fig 2

Removed the sunvisors Fig 3

Found all the screws Fig 4 and 5

Going to get better screws and some silicone. Will update later when done.

Tightened the screws and put the sunvisors, headliner, and trim pieces back on.

All is good again.


I am NEVER that lucky.

Glad it all worked out as simple as it did, Jim.

I'm not absolutely sure exactly what I'm looking at on the pictures, but your efforts to post pictures certainly won't be wasted on anybody who has a similar problem because they will know. It will all make sense to them, I'm sure. Maybe I should look closer at my own rig.

Thanks for posting!

Wes

I totally understand what you're saying. It was difficult to get the pics to display something that thin. It's only a 5" area and it doesn't look like anything unless you're the one getting into it.

A couple of them are actually taken underneath and looking up.

So hopefully, someone can make sense of them if they get the same issue.
