Leaking Slide on KZ Fifth Wheel Trailer, Is This a Design Flaw?
(Rockford, Il USA)
We just bought a 2003 KZ Sportsmen Fifth Wheel, 28 ft...with one slide, in the living/dining area, I think it is a 12' slide. we just found that it had a bad leak problem in both corners of the slide. the north corner was damaged but there was a 2' area on the south corner(front) of the slide. water was standing on the barrier and of course, the floor under the bench was so weak I almost went through it when I felt the carpet.
We took it to our local RV center and $3594.01 later it is still leaking in the corner. I am so upset that I have already called the RV center and told them they needed to call me ASAP!
We paid over one hundred dollars to have a "LEAK" test done. now not only are we screwed because we have $12k in a trailer that is only worth about $7k and I estimate that high...we also have the repair that we had to do....at least it has a 90-day warranty. thank God for some things.
I just need to know if they had a design flaw in this thing that causes the leaking. anyone heard of this happening?
ANSWER: Hi Martha thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.
I am not aware of any reported design flaws on the 2003 KZ Sportsmen 5th wheels. In fact most of the feedback that I have seen on KZRV (KZ) RVs has been mostly positive.
I will open this up to our visitors and see if any of them have had this problem with their KZ RVs.
I wish you the best of luck in getting this problem resolved so that you can finally go out there and do some RVing.
