Forest River is owned by:

Forest River!

http://www.forestriverinc.com/nd/def...c&page=aboutus

Seriously, though, Sierra's are manufactured in three different regions depending on where you live.

Have you tried your dealer? I would start there before going to the manufacturer. It's always best to let your dealer try to resolve problems on your behalf. Now, if they don't want to help (or refuse to help), then I'd go up the cahin.

We had some problems with our Cedar Creek when new, but our dealer took care of all of them. As an authorized dealer, they were the warranty representative for us.

By the way, welcome to IRV2.com.

Unless they were serious problems - things that affected the safe operation of the unit, then going right to the top without going through channels first could be the worst thing you could do. Start with your dealer, allow them to make repairs as necessary. If that line of communication breaks down then suggest that they get the mfg involved. If that fails, then it is ok to call them directly.

Most all RVs are going to have some problems that will need to be resolved over the first few months of ownership. Some of us get lucky and the mfg and dealer did a good job of building and preping the unit and we never see them again. Others get units that need to go back once or twice for minor fixes. And some get units that are real lemons If indeed your unit is one of these (I hope not) then going through the channels will help you if you ever have to use the Lemon Laws. Keep good records.

You might also post these problems that make you want to write the pres of the co.

surely you jest the corporate phone number on their brochure is a NEVER answer line, it just rings and rings
best bet is through a dealer, yours or one along the road.
I love my cedar creek, but it had alot of BS that should have never left the factory, its all good now, but i would be doing it different next time

Forest River was recently purchased by Warren Buffet's BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY INC.

Forest River's management still runs the company.

You can go to switchboard.com or google.com and look up Forest River Inc. in Elkhart, Indiana. Call them and they can tell you where to go from there. We toured the factory several years back and they were very nice.
Hope this helps,
Stormy
