Forest River HELP!
On June 14, a large truck failed to slow for stopped traffic and shoved a Chevy Tahoe into our Forester 2501 TS. We were not hurt, but there was severe damage to the right side fender and door. A second hit put a hole in the side of the “house”, just behind the bathroom sink. The vanity cabinet was destroyed and some of the wall studs broken and bent. The rig is a 2015 model with fewer than 11,000 miles on it.
This happened in Milwaukee, WI. We live in Sparks, NV, and were on our way home when this happened. Incredibly, the toad was not touched! We had to empty the motor home and rent a U-Haul trailer to return to Sparks.
The rig spent a month at a CW before they decided they could not repair it. It was then taken to a shop in Joliet, IL who does have the facility to do the repairs. It has been there now for over three weeks. Repairs have not been started because the shop is unable to get a “build sheet” from Forest River so they can identify what repair parts are need and order them. I have been in touch with Russ Stull in Parts, but he says he is unable to get the documents. We are now going on 10 weeks and nothing has been done!
I think someone at Forest River monitors this forum and I hope they can help with contact information of someone who can point us in the right direction
