Unhappy Evergreen Alpha Gold Fifth wheel problems

We just purchased a 2014 Evergreen Alpha Gold Fifth wheel in Feb. 2016. It seemed like it was never even camped in, so not sure of it's history..maybe a demo. Anyways, we camped two months in it and now our 70 gal. fresh water tank in the back is sagging and our large slide on right side is missing all it's bolts except one and not closing properly. When taken to a service place, they suggested it is a manufacturer defect..when trying to contact Evergreen, saw an article on line that they closed their doors on 6/11/16. Question: has anyone else had this same problem with this unit? And, where would be the best place in FL to have it repaired? Thank you

Hi Luv3camp...My 2013 Bayhill is on its third fresh water tank. The first tank simply fell out of its restraints within a month of ownership. The angle iron frame was woefully thin and the restraining strap(s) were not correctly installed at the factory. The second tank was installed incorrectly at a disreputable dealership in Turlock, California. The second tank deformed rapidly as a result. A subsequent third tank was installed correctly and the frame was reinforced.

Slide-outs have been an ongoing and thorny issue on Evergreen/Lifestyle 5th wheels. Every slide-out on my Bayhill has been reworked and revamped several times, all under warranty or extended warranty. Last spring, I met an RVer in Arizona who had a gorgeous 2015 Alpha Gold and his only complaint was with the garage storage for his motorcycle. He could not get his motorcycle out of the RV because the winch system had quit working. Most likely your slide-out is a Lippert mechanism. Lippert is quite responsive to issues like you've described and would probably have a dealership network that could resolve your difficulties.

Best of luck...Ken
