Frustration

The plan for today was to leave Pigeon Forge for Florida. However on Sunday I noticed a very wet spot on the rug under the desk area. I called the dealer on Monday and he told us to stop by when they opened at 10am Tuesday on our way out. We thought we gave ourselves plenty of time to get all packed up but I guess being a newbie at the 5th wheel thing, it took us much longer. We even had help from a neighbor. So we arrived at the dealer at 11am. They immediately put out the slide and put the ladder up. Uh oh, the seal on top of the slide was coming off. He put his guy on it and told him to check the rest. Well 5 hours later we had 3 out of 4 slides resealed. Sloppy work by the manufacturer, he said they didnt prep the area first before applying the seals. Not happy and sure hope that will be the end of that.. He took pictures to send to Heartland.
We left the dealership at 4pm and headed out. We drove 3.5 hrs and decided to stop for the night at the same passport park that we stayed at a week ago in Alabama. So just relaxing and will start all over tomorrow.

Oh Leno... soooo glad you are getting the seals fixed and all of them, not just the one that leaked. Travel safe!
