I have a 2005 Adventurer, so I guess it still under warranty. When I had a 02 Chieftain, I went to Forest City as the bedroom slide topper was tearing and was told it was not under any type of warranty and had to pay to have it replaced.
I will check out the website and see what they say. Free is good, however biting the bullet and paying for a better product as smlranger did might be the way to go.
Did either of you use any type of tape before the repairs were made?
