Tires burn through 2012 RV Forest River wheel wells & wiring
10-30-11 Forest River has not issued a RECALL yet.
In 2011, after our 2nd trip with 2012 Forest River 2109 Rockwood Mini-Lite, we found gravel under the couch during our clean up. We looked at the wheel wells inside and out and found the tires were touching the wheel well and rubbed completely through. The wiring tube was rubbed and full of gravel as well.
We contacted the dealer we bought the RV, with a couch slide out, from. They immediately informed Forest River directly and had them contact us.
Forest River said they would not exchange out the camper for a new one but would send repair parts. They had an area repair service rep. call us and schedule a time to repair it.
When he arrived he had never seen this situation before nor the extension brackets to add to a torsion model he had only done this on units with springs.
He said the RV defect is a new design flaw and results in the company fixing it for us as a recall. PlEASE, everyone who owns one, get this dangerous situation fixed as FOREST RIVER has NOT INFORMED CONSUMERS NOR RECALLED yet.
