Any Wildcats going to the FROG RALLY?

I talked to the Wildcat service manager and tentatively set up a factory tour for the FROG rally. If anyone else is going and wants to go see the factory let me know.

Hello, JerryD.
It's good to hear from you. We are interested in a Wildcat factory tour if it happens to fall on a day when we're loose. We have a paid-for tour that will take up most of Thursday.

Dan
P.S., I think I told you that Elkhart Parts and Service installed 3 slide-out toppers on my 295RSX after we got home - at their cost.

Yes you did.
Unfortunately he had mentioned Thursday for the tour. But it's not necessarily locked in yet. See how many want to go and if another day works better.

I toured the Wildcat factory when Wildcat Chris was there and they gave us a fantastic tour and I was so impressed that I ordered one, bad mistake. I was on the wildcat website and I really wanted a 29RLBS but that model was discontinued. The tour was great

Well Mike from the Wildcat factory called me back today and I don't know if he forgot about checking for another day or they will just be too busy. He basically confirmed Thursday the 18th foe a tour. He will be at the service check in at the rally.

Holy Cow! A month after the rally and our cat is trying to fall apart.
1. When we were at the rally, and actually before, we lost power a couple times. If we wiggled the cord it would come back. Brought it up at the rally and was given a new cord which when plugged in power came back. Figured out myself there were 2 lugs in the receptical on the side of the trailer were loose.
2. camping labor day weekend and water heater switch melted.
3. went to go out this weekend and the bar that connects the passenger side landing gear to the motor/drivers side gear, the bolt broke.
4. While camping, one of the slide window shades fell down.
5. Also the screen door door outside handle broke off.
To this point we haven't had any kind of real problems.

If you read the "Where Are All the Wildcats" thread you can see what happened to ours Labor Day weekend. Not to mention the frame failing, we had our complete GFI side go out the last night at our RV Park, then the next morning when hooking up to leave our front landing gear decided to quit as well. Starting to seem like there is a short trouble free window with these "Cats"
