We bought a Holiday rambler Presidential fifth wheel last fall.At time of purchase we noticed golf ball size spider web type cracking in front end.The trailer has aluminum sides with fiberglass endcaps. We were undecided about what to do. Dealer took pics, recommended patching.They said to replace endcaps would create greater chance of leaks. Now, start of this season we noticed foot and half long series of cracks running down the side of the rear endcap,along the edge of the window.These are deep enough they can be felt, and I am afraid there is some kind of defect and these will keep occuring if patched,plus I hate patching a new $60,000 camper.I do NOT trust dealer. They have lied repeatedly. Took 2 months to get recall parts ordered recently due to their lying lax mannner.To top things off parts dept said the pics they took with digital didnt show up for them to be sent to factory(after they told me they sent them).The second thing with digital you know right away if you get the shot, not 2 weeks later and 3 calls. He asked me to try and get a shot and email him. I did this, and also called manager over parts to complain (he also lied about ordering recall parts). Since I requested the cracks not be patched and replacement done in factory , he tells me I should just contact Monaco directly, and prob couldnt get it in before Sept. I called thinking Monaco would come get my camper or at least reimburse us the 16-18 hr one way drive to get camper there. they said they could set us up appt in June, but that expenses to get it there was our problem.Has anyone delt with Monaco before on repairs due to defects? Did you have to pay to get it to them? Any problems with dealers replacing endcaps?I dont know the best way to handle this.I need some opinions on this please.
