Rockwood Mfg Shut Down

Hi All, FYI received this message today:

Due to the recent events in our country, in order to keep all employees safe and to do our part to help stop/slow the spread of the virus, we have decided to shut down until at least April 3rd. If things have improved at that time, a delay of 9 production days is what we will incur – pushing all orders back 9 days.

Thank you for understanding,


Anthony Yoder

Thanks for sharing. Was supposed to have Rockwood warranty work done next week but my local trailer dealer is shut down too due to state requirements (Mass.).

X2 the thanks for the heads up. I was just about to order a part from the factory but now I'll just sit things out.

Could be the tip of the iceberg, toys like RV's are the first to suffer when the economy tanks.
I hope better times are coming but it's difficult to be optimistic.
No disrespect intended to people who live in a RV fulltime.

Well it seem then for the next couple weeks they will finally be putting out some quality products . lmao
Just kidding . should have closed a week or two ago as should have the rest of country . the more these closings get staggered the longer this will be drawn out . you think shelves are empty now just wait a month

Our wildcat is at the local dealer, warranty repairs made, notified we could pick it up last monday because service was still open here in NY. Called as instructed and have been told they are completely shut down now! So there it sits with no way to retrieve it! and no one to talk to! could be a while and i have no way of knowing if it's plugged in or not! thank goodness i rewinterized prior to dropping it off a few weeks ago!

I'd try to find the owner's personal land line or cell number. There are ways to do that. Contact him/her and explain your situation. I'm sure they'd work with you so you'd be able to bring it home.

On the other hand, are you planning to use it soon? If not, just ride this out like everybody else.
