I was the last to post on a recent thread about water leaks and since there was no answer to the question that I raised, I am starting a new thread in hopes of getting a response.
We soon will be replacing our current RV, a 1998 Class C Born Free, with a 5th wheel. While doing research on Excel 5th Wheels, we came across a thread about water leaks and it is very concerning
as we have had similar, major water leak issues with the Born Free. Screws completely rusted out with almost nothing left of them etc. Why do these otherwise quality conscious RV Manufacturers refuse to use stainless screws?
Hopefully Peterson Industries has improved the design of their seams and their manufacturing processes since the 2004 model which was the subject of this thread. Born Free did in 2008 and it is my understanding that they have cured most of their water leak issues as a result.
Can anyone tell me if the seam design has been significantly changed (improved) in recent model years?
