Hi All, I am also having trouble getting a real response from FR about an exterior panel separation issue that just happened to to my 2012 178.   They respond to my emails with comments like the supervisor may be back in a few days (apparently hasn't been back since or is maybe too busy to respond, etc.) Also, this camper was purchased used in 2015 in Edmonton, Alberta.  I have the buyers original paperwork but the selling dealer is a 4 hour one way drive away from me so I am trying to find information of how to do the repair myself and also maybe find out what may have caused the damage in the first place so I can prevent it from happening again.  

We love the Rpod mostly but are having a laundry list of issues.  So far, the following problems have occurred in two years:  Microwave broke (no longer heats food), trim holding fridge and microwave in place keeps pulling away (nails pulling out), Frig stopped working on propane (still works on batt and shore power)

Thanks for your help and suggestions

Pix of damage:

Well.. It's way out of warranty, and even if it wasn't warranty isn't transferable. Take it to any dealer/RV repair place. It looks like maybe it struck something, hard to tell from the one close up picture.
