Tough break Ocraman...glad your dealer made things right quickly.
I watch them running 5ers around my dealers crowded lot quickly. It must happen all the time.

My unit is at home waiting for another Rv shop to get all front cap decals than to schedule for cap repaint. My insurance is going after them for the full repair cost. Until my dealer gets there shop built they do not have a body shop. U need a paint booth to do it right. U said u had a main slide problem and it was fixed while u waited, what did they find? I can hear mine struggle but the cocking and stopping went away on its own, at least for now. How were ur j panels coming loose was something missing that holds them?

Rock, my dealer had a paint booth (which was good). The slide problem, was caused by a piece of foam rubber that had fallen in the slides track on the fridge end of the slide. They also advised on the Swintec slides, to hold the switch for ten (10) seconds after extending or retracting the slides. They that was to aid in alignment and the motors being in synch.

Rock, it appears to me that at the factory they were not careful in lining up the overlap from one piece of J-metal to the next piece or skimping on the J - metal and not allowing enough for a good overlap to get the screws into both pieces. Also, it appeared that they only used one (1) screw to secure the pieces of J -metal. One screw with improper alignment or too short of J - metal was too much for the stress of highway/road travel. So as a result, I had three piece of J - metal come loose in the first two (2) months of ownership (approximately a thousand miles of travel).

Thanks for the update. Can someone please look under the kitchen slide. Where the wires come out of the slide bottom than run aft to the folding arm do u have a clamp securing the wires or do they hang loose. Mine has two clamps hanging on the wires not connected. I took one clamp and placed it mid cable run up high just like the one they have where the wires come out. Just want to make sure nothing is pinching when closed

Just looked at all my j channel metal pieces. They have two screws where they overlap and another just before the bottom. Than running along the bottom on top of the metal j is a silver molding running the length and that is screwed to the bottom of the Rv. They must of messed yes up to have two come off. I will add more after my warranty is up

Mine are all zip tied in a big bundle with the fridge drain to the folding arm.
I don't think you have the residential fridge so you don't have that drain.

Hello all,
Mine are the same as Klassic's... (Took a few pics if you want to see)
We just finished another 5k+ miles in the rig(AZ-CA-OR-WA-ID-UT.. Currently at lake Powell AZ), return to home tomorrow and then the rig goes into the dealer for the roof repairs on Thursday .. I'll keep you all posted how that turns out.
I have noticed a bent frame brace under the kitchen slide ... We have not had any slide issues, but there is a sense of a low or soft spot in front of the frig (same side as the bent brace... We are having the dealer check it out as well...
Also, the top battery shelf has torn and is at risk of collapsing onto the lower batteries... Remember ... I have six batteries, 3 on top and three below.. The dealer will be repairing this as well;however, I'm thinking I may just go back to the two standard AGMs... We don't do much if any dry camping, we have a generator, plus the truck so I'm not seeing the value vs the added weight etc...
Any thoughts or feedback ?
Thanks again

So your wire bundle just comes out of the slide hangs down and than back up to the arm with no other hard mounts just tie wrapped together. If that is so I will remove the clamp I installed since there were two just hanging in the wires. My wires now r like a W now since I installed the bracket in the center up at the top. You r carrying a lot of wait with those extra batteries and I would remove if it was me. I just bought two battery boxes and remounted the tie downs with bolts instead of the useless screws. I was thinking of yours with six batteries and like that is a lot of weight on the flimsy top shelf. The bottom shelf is not even high enough for me to put the top cover on the battery box since it now hits my tie down bolts I installed on the top shelf. Put some holes in the bottom box to drain any water since now open but now both batteries are securely tied down. Post a pic of the bent frame support that does not sound good at all. I wonder if that could happen when you power level since u can see the flex just aft of the wheels when it lifts the back. To bend that support the frame would have to twist some. Post a picture I will look at mine after work to see exactly what u have bent. Take some more pics of your roof to when u bring it in for repairs.
