[red]Slide out Warranty Repair Problems?[/red]
I'm Just curious if any Fleetwood owners are having problems getting their slideout problems fixed under Warranties? We have had nothing BUT problems! Long story.....I can give more details later. Our 2001 32 foot GL was made quickly on the assembly line (we have heard from the Fleetwood Repair Reps themselves!! it is a MONDAY or FRIDAY Coach) and is missing bolts supporting the slide and has been repaired (5 different attempts) with "shims and extra "bulb seal" to compensate the large "gap" that all of a sudden appeared one morning, LOST it's seal as it isdefective and needs to be totally REBUILT, not shimmed!!. Fleetwood doesn't want to fix it like it should be to the original tight seal fit at the top, they just keep stuffing more in it to fill the gap, now about 4" of wood and rubber and it still is not right and they used ALL the adjustment!!! I thought I'd "forum out" and see IF there are others out there? Or maybe we are the unlucky ones? :-( Hope not...... things ALL RV'ERS SHOW KNOW about the Fleetwood Warranty Service practices NOW!!
