I'm new to this forum but I thought I would chime in,
I have had my FS2600 at WW twice and have been very happy with the service there. I was told the first time to take anything of value out but I left most of my stuff in there anyway. Trailer retuned in much better condition than it was when I left it. second time I took everything out because I wanted to weigh it empty on the way home. again the trailer was returned repaired and cleaned inside and out.
I do think they need a paved drop off and pick area though.

Welcome SoCal traveler. Welcome to iRV2!
What were the reasons you needed to take your FS2600 back to Perris?
and lots of Raptors popping up around here lately too. I don't want to startle any of you guys, but i got one in my garage as well. Well,.. its a 80 or a 90, i forget. I'll bet that your 660 is quicker. And i think diirk has a 700. Its got to be quicker. I'll never know exactly why i bought the darn thing.

I never was real keen on paved roads though. All the neighbors on my privately owned dirt road, after 50 years of dirt, got together and chipped in to asphalt our road last year. Nine out of ten neighbors voted to pave it. There went my dirt bike proving grounds, taken from me Constitutionally. Maybe thats why they paved it. My barstool racer is just about done though. That ought to make them rethink the paving idea.

SAS! Welcome Buddy! Glad to see ya over here!

I'm gonna second you on that paved pickup area @ WW...I had just washed my KR the day I took our SLC out there, and it came back dirty from all that greased-up potato dirt out there...and I happened to show up just as the day shift was letting out.

I, too, have had my old coach out there for service, and have been pretty pleased- I hope that tomorrow, when I pick up the new SLC, it'll be in tip-top shape also. Oh....get to drive the KR AND the SLC tomorrow...what a joy (third pull!).

And Tommy...I'm gonna head for the nearest CAT scales and weight the darn thing, just for you, and err...to get Mikey off his duff and get his done too!

and hey...BTW...had a GREAT Jeep trip today...got out of here just before it got too hot (it's in the 100's here), headed up to Angelus Oaks- had some breakfast, then up to Big Bear, then into Apple Valley to see my buddy's new house he's almost done with (which we'll be moving him next weekend)- put over 220 miles on the Jeep today, and discovered some great trails to Jeep on...one heck of a good day.

Sean

During all the rain we had I found water inside the front storage area. It turns out the compartment door seals were starting to sag and a leak developed. WW seemed to know about it because they said they needed to install upgraded seals. I gave them a list of other little things that I wouldn't have worried about but it was going in anyway.
the second time was for the hitch coupler, I had read on another forum about someone that had an udersized coupler on their FS2600. So I checked mine and found out mine was the same. After a call to WW and an E-mail to the coupler Mfr. WW agreed to change it. I guess Zieman mixed the coupling as they are the same except for one was a little thicker metal. WW said that Zieman sent a mobile unit out to replace the coupling at their factory.

Wow,... are you saying that the ball size was correct (obviously as you towed it home the first day) but that the grade of metal used was not up to par??? Zieman must make tow hitches rated for less weight for smaller trailers (maybe), but that they MIXED UP some of the lighter couplings with some Weekend Warriors?????

Yes they use at least two different models, the original coulpler was rated at 10,000lbs max. and the one they relaced it with is rated at 13,000lbs. max. My FS2600 GVWR is 11,100lbs. the first coupler also has a 25,000lbs. rating for use on a Mobile Home so I wasn't worried about it but I wanted it replaced. I was told that the higher rating was because they figure a mobile home would most likely be a one time use. both models use the 2 5/16" ball.
