I can definitely speak for OMC and for what motivates them, given the level of our relationship with them over the past year. They are certainly a business, so of course they need to make money, as any other business does. Having said that, they have repeatedly and consistently proven themselves to us both. I would stake my own personal reputation on their honesty and integrity, and can assure you that they would not suggest repairs or replacements were they not necessary. In fact, on more than one occasion, they have convinced us not to make a repair or renovation that they felt would not be worth the money for us. They most definitely would not suggest costly repairs that were unnecessary just to make money. To imply that they would do otherwise is not only incorrect, but does them a great disservice.

Nothing bad wash intended, OMC would not likely do all of the things I suggested because they would better serve their customer by doing it differently, until they look at it we cannot say what they would do, that wash the intent

My suggestions are for you to consider for other option

I only told you what they told me. I did not add any intent. Thanks for your reply. Sam

Thanks for your message. The current crack is about 1 and 1/2 inches long and spreading along the original repair as the second crack did. The original crack and the second crack after the first repair was about 8 inches (from the heater to the bottom of the slide). I'm going to the repair facility on the 17th of this month to see what they propose. I'll try and send a picture later after I figure out how to do it.

Smile Final Solution to 2007 CC Inspire Slideout Crack

Thanks to everyone who provided thoughts on how to repair the crack on the passenger side living room slideout. This problem is not unique to CC but is also happening on slideout produced by current manufacturers. The repair solution is to make sure there is no water intrusion, repair the original crack (which on our coach was 6 inches from the front furnace and stopped at the slide metal frame), slice the gelcoat/fiber glass at the original crack starting point straight down to the metal frame to allow for pressure release and cover with trim. The repair and paint work was done so well that someone not knowing the background would not notice anything out of order. Only time will tell.

Had cracks in my bedroom slide after running into a pothole after being diverted off Hwy 1 on the Oregon coast, in a construction area. I was told that it was a molded slide without framework and could not be fixed, but needed to be replaced, unfortunately. I was thankful for the good advice I was given by a repair shop, that was not going to make the repair, they could have done a quick fix that wouldn't have worked.

I suggest you talk to your repair facility and tell them what was done to my coach. The repair facility I went to has used this method on numerous coaches from different manufacturers with foam cores and other backing material. If you need some pictures I can send a couple. I will keep you posted on the repair as I use the coach more if you want. If you do send me your email address. Sam
