Discovered a serious problem

Hello, A year ago my wife and I purchased a 2021 Forest River SunsSeeker Classic, class C camper. It now has 5400 miles on it and is less than two years old. Yesterday, while washing the camper I bumped a piece of trim on the bottom edge of the bulkhead panel between the cab and the camper living area. The trim piece fell off onto the driveway and a bunch of what I thought was sand and dirt came with it. Inspecting the trim piece, it looks as though the factory installed it with one screw. The serious part is that the wood, probably either OSB board, or chipboard, sandwiched between a thick layer of sound deadening foam and the fylon outer skin is wet and rotting! Same thing on the drivers side and in that case, the trim piece is laying along the side of the road someplace! I'm wondering. Have others had this problem with not only Forest River products, but other class C's. If so, what have you done to fix the issue, DIY, or was it taken to an RV body shop? Bandaid

RE: headed to Myrtle Beach

I am very familiar with the Myrtle Beach area, although it has seen massive growth over the past few years. My wife and I volunteered at Huntington Beach tayte ark for five years after I retired. Loved the area and especially the seafood restaurants. Really, that is the main reason we are going there this next month! We will be staying at Pirateland, as we like the south end of the strip and are most familiar with it. The last time we drove up 17, there was a lot of construction south of Charleston. I think it was a major paving project. Yes, 95 can be a nightmare in places. Thanks for your info, Bandaid

RE: Where to get Replacement Wheel Bearings -Old Camper

I have had good luck with NAPA. If you remove your old bearings and seal, there are numbers stamped into them. Take a set with you and NAPA can cross reference them. They should not be hard to get. Bandaid

headed to Myrtle Beach

Next month we are heading to Myrtle Beach, from Melbourne Florida. I don't expect any problems on 1-95, other than the usual traffic, but I am wondering about HWY 17. Anyone have any input on construction on that route? Bandaid

jackknife sofa removal

I am getting ready to have optional factory theater seat recliners installed in my 2021 Sunseeker Classic, by Forest River. Presently, the unit has a jackknife sofa where the theater seats will be. I want to remove the sofa before the new seats are installed, mostly to save installation time, as the installing dealer get $174 per hour shop rate. I am a hand guy, with lots of tools and automotive experience, so I am pretty sure I can handle removal of the old sofa. However, has anyone else with a class C done a removal like this? Is the sofa taken out in one piece, or is best to disassemble it and remove it in pieces? I do plan to advertise the couch and recover some money, as it is in excellent condition. Thanks, Bandaid

RE: New Ford V8

Hi All, Just had my 2860 Sunseeker at a HD tire shop this past week. Nope, it was not the ball joints and the unit has just over 5000 miles on it, ( Ford does not put zerk fittings in the ball joints so there is no way to grease them ). Ford puts in a "non-adjustable splined alignment bushing" which is set to less than one degree of caster from the factory! In my case, the front wheels were also slightly toed out and between the two of these issues, this camper was a beast to drive. The bushings have been replaced with aftermarket adjustable bushings and the caster reset to about +5 degree's. Also, the toe was corrected. What a difference in the way this unit handles! It no longer wanders all over the road! I am looking forward to getting out on the interstate and seeing what the handling improvement is at highway speeds above 50, which is what I was driving on the way home. The improvement in handling was very much improved at that speed and I expect it will not regress at any higher speed. Regarding the V8. Our unit has the V8 and it is a 2021. On a 1400 mile round trip, prior to having the alignment fixed, we got an onboard computer average of 9.2 MPG. We are not towing anything yet, but will be in the future at some point. Bandaid

downloading to a GPS

I have an older version, #7720 Rand McNally GPS, which I think my wife bought for me from Campingworld. I have recently used the trip planner program on the Good Sam site to plan a trip next week. I was going to download it to my GPS, but the program says it only supports Garmin, which is what CW is selling now. Is there a way to download the trip to a Simm card from my computer, and load it into the GPS? Thanks, Bandaid

Sunseeker classic questions

I have a 2021 Sunseeker and I have an air leak in the passengers side airbag system. I have it narrowed down to the fitting on the top of the airbag, however, getting to the location of the fitting appears to be difficult to say the least! Has anyone tried resealing this fitting and what did you have to remove to gain access to the top of the bag? My unit also came equipped with the Bilstein shocks. While under the unit looking for a way to access the airbag fitting, I noticed the top of the shock goes through a metal sheet. How, or where do you gain access to the top of the shock should it need to be removed and replaced? Ratracer.

Getting to Guntersville State Park

This June I will be driving my Class C to Guntersville State Park, in Alabama. Having been there once before, I know the main road in, from Guntersville goes up a steep incline and then back down on the other side. My question, is there a flatter route to get into the park, avoiding this mountain? Bandaid
