  1. I went and looked for my trailer this morning. It was sitting inside the shop so they are handling the issue as well as I can expect. I don't know what is going to be done since Forest River has not told us yet. Hopefully they will make a decision on Tuesday. Also, the dealer "recommended" it go back for repairs, so we shall see.
  2. I don't quite understand how you would get the manufacturer to pay me the cost of repair if it is under warranty. Looks like I need to take a ride this morning. Last I saw my trailer it was sitting outside with no repairs done and there is a rather large batch of rain a few hours west of it right now.
  3. I can see your point, but at this time I am going to hold off on the second A/C. I need to try to save what little I have in the bank!! This is all in the beginning stages so I am hoping to get this done quickly, but in reality this isn't going to be a "priority item" for them. I really don't want it to stretch out for months..........
  4. Yeah, this happened in the 'best possible place'. We are staying at our daughter's house, but want my trailer back! We got the trailer unloaded yesterday. I really didn't think it was packed that full....... It is a 50A unit and my wife wants to put in another AC. That can be done at any time since it is pre-wired for one in the bedroom. We just haven't spent the money for one yet. When we were looking for trailers a year ago my wife said "NO" (very emphatically I might add) to a used trailer. I found a couple that were in good shape with what we wanted. I expect FR will transport it back and repair this one, but I wish for a replacement.............
  5. Believe it or not, the guy in Texas actually worked for Forest River! He worked for six months in Indiana and six months in Texas! He took two months to get to the repair. There was a strip of aluminum that he said he was waiting on. I see no strip of aluminum like he removed in his repair. Glad there is a warranty. Last I saw my trailer it was sitting outside without any covering over the front. I may need to take a ride and see if it is still outside. I told them I was concerned about water damage since it rained (hard, flash flood warnings in the area next morning) and wife and I were mopping up water at 3:30AM that was running down the walls.
  6. That's what the dealer is thinking since there was no marks or damage of any kind to anything near the roof. The guy who repaired it in Texas said that there was no glue under the front and claimed "You will NEVER have trouble with it again"! Yeah, right...... At least there was and is a record of the first repair that Forest River authorized. When I went up on the roof there was glue where I stepped. I didn't do a close inspection of the area though. I am pushing for the dealer to help push FR to just replace the trailer since the roof alone is a $5000 repair. With transportation to Indiana and back with who knows how much to pull the body up and install a new floor it may be less expensive to replace rather than repair.
  7. My wife and I got back to Minnesota on Wednesday. I backed into my son in law's driveway to do some work to the trailer before going to the campground for the summer. I was talking to my SIL and turned around. I looked at the trailer and almost crapped my pants! The roof was lifted and torn due to it sliding out from under the front cap (I had a repair done for the same problem done in February in Texas under warranty. The trailer is now at a dealer and with the roof like it is and the spongy floor needing replaced they want to send it back to the factory........... BTW, this trailer is just under a year old so it is under warranty. This picture is at the dealership.

    Door Lock Fob

    Guess what?!?! I got the other remote programmed! I found a site with a variation of what I was supposed to do. Turn the key to the run position, but don't start it. Instead of holding the unlock for 10 seconds, the instructions said hold it between 4 and 10 seconds then push the panic button for one second and release both at the same time. Next push both the lock and unlock buttons at the same time and release. It takes a coupleof secondsto hear the chime signaling that step was recognized. After that push any button on the remotes, wait for the chime and you are done.

    Maybe it would take a phone call, I don't know. I just can't seem to get the truck and remote into the program mode so I can try to get the other remote functioning.

    This is getting ridiculous. I emailed the supplier of the remotes for assistance and the first TWO emails back from them was to get my full name and zip code? WTF has that got to do with these remotes? All I want is to get two remotes working. The remotes really don't give a rip who is pushing the buttons or where it physically is........

    I'm getting tired of seeing the truck from outside the windshield............

    Welp, got back from the dealer. One of the aftermarket remotes works and the other wouldn't program. The tech even tried another battery. HOWEVER, I popped the remote apart and found the battery was in upside down. I got back to my trailer and found instructions of how to program another remote, but can't seem to get the truck into the program mode. I would hold the unlock button for 10 seconds, then press the panic button and release both at the same time like the instructions said to do. I tried many times and gave up. Anybody else have any ideas?

    Off to a dealer again with new remotes. HOPEFULLY these will work.......

    Exhaust Brake Question

    I suppose the Jacobs would be about 1/2 price too....... Just looked at a Jacob's. The actuator looks the same, but the mount is different and it is spot welded on, so, not interchangeable......

    Exhaust Brake Question

    No, I haven't done anything with it yet. I am planning on fixing it when I get back to Minnesota in about a month. Does the Jacobs brake work off of pressure or vacuum? The Banks is vacuum operated.
