There's tons here, I have several truck and non-truck myself.
I have to finish my trailer so I can go pick up two parts trucks to assemble into one towing rig, then drive that while I paint my 70 Galaxie and return it to stock height. I also need to paint the house I'm renting, put a drain in in front of the garage, fix up my Subaru, put a new engine in my wife's Jeep, and get ready for a kid in July. Tons o' fun, and only one of those things is certain.

Three years old and rotted out already? I had heard Fleetwoods had water issues, but that's just ridiculous.

Your telling me! I love the trailer. I stepped inside it last week and almost went through the floor. I called fleetwood and they said sorry you seem to be 7 months past the warrantee. I told them that they replaced the door and all of the windows within the first year. They then said we only warrantee the repairs for 160 days. What a crock. I am hopeing to find that the leak is from the door and that the water got in from the original door and they did not make sure the water was out, before they sealed it up. Then I will force them to take care of it and if they will not I will sue their asses off for a faulty repair.

I am kind of torqued

Ouch. That took some time to get over grown. Hopefully you have all your paperwork from your original purchase and all work order reciepts. Trust me it will help if you decide talk with an attorney. I would come help, but I'm trying to get my camper cleaned up and resealed. June is going to be an extremely busy month.

Legally, they are responsible if you can show that the issue is a continuation of a problem that was initially addressed during the warranty period and not properly rectified.

I feel the same way. I have to give them the oppertunity to rectify the situation first though. Then if they say it is not their fault(and they cannot prove it) I will get a lawyer and have it taken care of that way. I just know that it will probably cost as much as just paying for it to be done though.

I just finished a couple of my front end projects; scrape, rustproof, and undercoat frame and shock tower; full polyurethane bushing install, radius arm, axle pivot, and sway bar; Eibach lowering springs; Tokico shocks.

Tomorrow I'll start on the new slotted/drilled rotors. Then on to the back of the truck for the same treatment as the front.

Just got a new project from work...Dodge Ram350 Van. Talk about workers not caring about company vans! Got it running much better by putting in a fuel filter, cleaned the lubricationg tar out of the system, then made the mistake of flushing the cooling system....Once I cleaned out the rust sealant, I ended up putting in a new radiator!...LOL
