A few weeks ago, while travelling south from Maine, we went through a very heavy storm in Augusta. Very high winds and heavy rain. Gale warnings were up along the coast, which I believe indicates sustained winds over 39mph.
At one point, I heard a very faint, brief whistling noise that lasted for 2-3 seconds. Figured maybe a wet belt or other road noise. When we arrived at our destination, I discovered that a piece of "belt trim" had been blown off. The piece goes from my entry door, over the passenger front wheel, up to the front clip.
I immediately called Fleetwood, and was relieved when they said they had the trim in stock. That, of course, was the good news.
First, I had to buy 20'. Ok.
Next, they can only ship 8' lengths. I go outside with a tape measure, and of course, the piece that's missing is 8'3" long. Ok.
Next, it comes unpainted, and that single piece of trim has 4 different colors on it, plus a clear coat.
Just finished ordering the paint by taking the paint codes on the tag inside the closet and doing a google search on the codes.
As of now, 5 12.5oz cans of spray paint are making their way via UPS to my house, for $114.
Hopefully, I can check this project off next week when they arrive.
Always something with these motorhomes, eh?
Can't imagine what a shop would have charged to replace that simple piece of molding and then paint it to match.
