Our damage was on the bunkend doors. It was not noticeable at all until failure happened. It was a prob with the older models, but I hear it has been fixed. Just watch to make sure when it rains that the rain does not run into the hinge area.
The Kodiaks and Cubs are sisters, but this time we opted for the hard slide. I will miss the canvas.
I am sitting in it right now at the Lafayette KOA. It is raining and I am glad that the kids have their own room. The stereo even has speakers in their room so that I can play their music for them and turn the speakers out here off. They have built a fort between the bunk beds. The dog is giving me a fit right now though. He won't stay put.
We are having a plumbing problem though. Our first night was fine. Now the water is leaking somewhere around the bathroom or water heater. I don't see anything. When we were unlevel the water ran across the floor and I could see it dripping under the trailer. I bought lynx levelers and now I can't see it dripping under, but it is a little behind the commode near the sink. It worries me that it is not running out. We are now turning the water on long enough to use it and then turning it off. We have the warranty, so will see about it next week. I don't think the warranty company would pay for the onsite service available here at KOA. I also noticed from the first night a leak under the bathroom sink. It is leaking from the first joint just before the elbow. I removed the elbow and it is not clogged. I thought maybe it was because it was not level, but we are now level and it is still doing it. The joint is tight and it is still seeping. Do I need a washer or plumbers tape to fix it?
I also had a funny incident our first night here at the KOA. I went outside to empty the tanks. I pulled the black, no prob. closed it, pulled the gray. The hose shot off of the fitting and water was pouring everywhere. I just looked there for a few seconds in shock and then it hit me "CLOSE the valve BLONDIE!!!" I closed the valve. Then I realized that most of the water was back up from the black that I had just drained that was still sitting in the hose. Luckily we have a rule..."No #2 in the loo." That would have been NASTY! I reconnected the hose and opened the grey again...slowly. We then cleaned the area. I also went and bought a hose clamp to tighten that hose to the fitting. The store here has everything handy. I was also able to get a fuse to replace the one for the kids room that blew.
Oh well, this has been a LONG post. I will shut up now. Any ideas on the plumbing issues?
