i pick it up on Wednesday. When I get there I will ask them for the part # and forward it to you. I wish I was staying warm! We go hit with a small snow storm last night and its suppose to drop down to about 8 degrees tonight. A good night for a nice fire in the fireplace.
Glad to hear you got your sofa piece, looks like we already need one. It was patched and repaired before we took delivery but not holding up. Do you by chance have a part number? We won't be taking our coach in until late Feb or early March. Today I woke up and it was -1 degree outside, COLD here in northern Idaho. When it warms up and the snow melts we'll take the coach in for some warranty stuff, then we hope to get out there an use it. We took an extended warranty from Wholesale warranties yesterday, probably don't need it but felt like it will give us a little piece of mind for the next seven years. I agree, we like the quality items that Fleetwood used like the Magnum charger/inverter. We had one in our boat for many years and can't say enough good things about it. Hope you're staying warm.
I don't think they could be that much money and at least I will have piece of mind that 1) I have a replacement, 2) I don't have to worry about them matching the material at a later date. 3) I can use the one that is on there until it is worn out and replace it easily without getting the dealer involved or the warranty not covering it after the first year although I'm going to push to have them warranty the sofa longer. Let me know what fleetwood and flex steel have to say.
Received some good news yesterday! Took the MH in for the warranty work. They showed me the replacement material for the sofa and the back part we are both having problems with comes as a complete piece, it is pre-sewn and looks like it just slips over the frame! Even though it seems fleetwood is going to continue to repair it, Im going to order 2 more of these pieces and store them away, that way I can replace them down the road when they get too shabby looking. They velcro at the bottom.
We too chose the 35K because of the floorplan and L shaped sofa. My partner had to leave yesterday, his nephew passed away. When he gets back at the end of the month we'll call Fleetwood and tell them our concerns about the sofa too. Then we'll contact Flexsteel. It's too bad, I would hope the sofa would last as long as we own the coach. We plan on taking the coach in to our dealer for warranty work after the snow melts, probably early March. We'll take it in numerous time for the sofa if we have to, I'm actually hoping they replace this one. It has a lot of chafing on the backside of the pullout which was repaired even before we bought the coach, so it's had problems before. Hope they continue to fix or replace it. We did look at a Newmar Canyon Star 3610, same floorplan as ours, but they have a better built sofa, more substantial and thicker material. WIsh I could afford it, I think the sofa is $4000.

I really like the fact that Fleetwood seems to use top notch components like the magnum inverter ect. They even line all the shelves with carpet and it is so quiet going down the road and drives like a dream. Does your main slide seem to move really slow when you are bringing it back in?
We have put almost 3000 miles on it and other than the few things we had go wrong, we are really happy! We have had one toy hauler and a super C before this and compared to are Gulf Stream this coach is top notch. If I told you the stories about that hunk of junk you wouldn't believe me. literally had the curb side wall falling off! You could watch the pavement go by. The gap between the wall and floor was a good three inches.
I really don't want to have this beautiful coach that I love with some torn up sofa. The reason we bought it was the floor plan. I love the "living area with the L and the fireplace/entertainment area. we originally were going to take a different coach (same model) but noticed that sofa had a tear so we took this one and now the same thing.
I too have a problem with the sofa and it really bothers me. the L portion keeps chaffing and has 20 or 30 small tears. I am taking it in today to have the kick panel of the l portion replaced but while that was on order the whole back of the l has developed small tears. Obviously flex steel has a design problem. I contacted fleetwood about a long term warranty on this and they kind of threw it back in the dealers lap
the other issues on our warranty list include a bit of the veneer on one cabinet delaminating, lights in the living room slideout flickering and so on. Hope to get them all addressed in March so we can hit the road in April. In the mean time we're enjoying using it in our storage building. We bought it four weeks ago, felt like we got a good price and APR at the time.
We spent the last 11 years sailing full time in Central and South America, now it's time to see our country. Can't wait to hit the road!!!! We love the floor plan, feels more homey than a camper which is we wanted. Where are you located? If you ever find youselves in the Idaho Panahandle let us know. We're staying with our cousin on his 1000 acre cattle ranch, lots of room up here for visitors. That's an invitation if you find yourselves up here.
Sorry for the long email, sometimes I just get carried away. Oh, our email is firstname.lastname@example.org
