I tried to glue them back on using silicone. Not sure how long that would last, so am having them replaced under warranty.

We had the decals on the front of our 177 removed while it was in the dealer getting de-winterized.  I have heard from several sources that new decals will just peal off again. We like the way it looks with no decals on the front.

Same deal, I has the microwave go out under warranty. My dealer pulled one out of another 177 so I didn't have to wait on parts.

Hi kmcmurph,
Thank you for your reply. It's nice to hear others have had the same problem, though it's too bad Forest River hasn't opted for a more reliable Microwave.

Larry K,
Thanks for your reply. I can see where the front would look better without the decals. We'll see what happens. If the problem happens again I may do the same.

Don't feel too bad about anything you've had to have replaced under warranty.  I think most of our Pod is new by now.
 
The microwave was replaced for a faulty door, the fridge was replaced because it wouldn't cool, the portable grill in the garage was replaced because it wouldn't get hot, one decal was replaced because it cracked and split apart and lastly the fantastic fan in the bathroom was replaced because it would go on and off on it's own.  ConfusedConfused
 
Still love the Pod, and so far, knock on wood, all of the replacement  pieces, controls, and units have all worked perfectly.
 
That's not to say that the strange noise my water heater makes hasn't gotten some attention from me lately though!  LOLLOL

Thanks for putting things into perspective. Am looking forward to getting the pod back from the shop soon, been there for almost a month. After all, summer is coming.

I could go on and on, but I won't.  Just search the posts for my issues.  The biggest being having most of my windows replaced and the AC fan kit going.  At the time, the rig was brand new and the AC issue only after a couple years.
