We bought our Solaris 276 this spring. It was a 2005 left over and it leaks in the front compartment on both sides. The dealer took the front apart and saw water stains on the wood and they think it is coming in from the front, about a third of the way down from the roof, on both sides. Of course I had to take it back about 3 times because "they could not reproduce the problem". They said they put new putty tape on but I still felt it very damp and they still have it. My question is has anyone else had a similar problem? It is not the doors because the leak is on the front.
Also, when the slide comes out it suctions to the camper and then at some point it lets go and shakes the whole camper (our first slide). When it does go out, it makes grinding noise when it is fully out. At other campgrounds I do not hear other slides with this noise. Is this normal?
We bought this because we loved the layout and the room and we have heard great stories of the quality but we have had so many problems because along with these issues the shower screen leaked and the slide leaked (until we installed an awning over it). Thank you.
