Deryk did the paper work that came with the trailer say the Warranty wasn't transferable or is it because you haven't heard back from Chandler? If its the later your not the first one here to mention they a a little slow to respond. Hopefully this am call will get you a response. Your right it is a serious safety issue that came to light so I'm a little surprised they haven't made an effort to track down their trailers to fix it. They haven't made that many trailers so it shouldn't be to big of an under taking even for a small company.

They don't keep a list of trailer owners they sold too, ya know for people to see one in their local area. Parkliner posted this on their facebook or here, I can't remember.

Hummm that would be a bit odd if its actually the case. How would they keep track of what trailers are under warranty and to whom and how do they advise their customers about recalls on appliances etc? which do happen from time to time.

I didnt get alot of paperwork from Harry, mainly just the warrany info from the appliances etc...The ParkLiner isnt here with me, about 60 miles away so cant run out and check.

Hopefully the call today will get things moving, I don't think its fair that I need to blow some real cash for a pair of battery boxes that will fit in the enclosed area when they need to order some custom boxes to fit. I dont mind installing it... but they need to get them out to their customers. Im sure they have a list of who they sold them to...scary thought if they dont.

Maybe Parkliner could persuade the owner of this site (Andy Rabinowitz, DBA "Social Knowledge") to put up a dedicated website just for the brand. That works really well for the Escape brand.

They even have one of those fancy-dancy maps with little pushpins you can click on to find out where all the trailers are.

Could help-and certainly can't hurt!

They do have their own Facebook page with 753 likes/followers and they seem to post updates etc to it.

Escape Trailers didn't create the Escape Forum. If you look back on FGRV about four or five years, you will find that Jeff Zajas thought it would be a good idea. And, I supported him. And, then the moderators at the time on FGRV put me in moderation, as in I couldn't post. And, then Jeff made me a moderator on Escape Forum ( which was sweet revenge I must say, since there was no way to protest ). Jeff sold his Escape and got an Airstream Bambi, but kept the site going. And then he sold the Airstream and got a small motorhome and then sold the Escape Forum site to Andy, who owns this site.
As for Parkliner, I don't think creating a site is what they need right now. From the posts I've seen here, such a site would be nothing but grief.

That screw through the wood trim only holds the wood to the fan. It screws in through the wood and into the plastic part of the fan that comes down through the opening. You will have to get that out, along with the others. Can't remember if there is 2 or 4, then on the roof you will have to drill out all the rivets. Take a thin pry bar and gently get under the fan flange all around to loosen it up. They use to put them down with marine glue, so go slow and easy. Of coarse this is after you get all rivets, screws in through the wood, and the 4 on the plastic trim piece that fastens on to the wood. If you like just before you get to it send me a pm with your phone number and I'll walk you through the process. I have done several of these on different makes. I will tell you how to do it the right way. Tim

Hi Deryk! Glad to see we have other PL owners in NJ. on the fan, I am with Stairman - duct tape will have to do until we can get it serviced. Tried every bit we own and nothing. We just got home and the Gander canopy kept our roof dry through massive rains in Northern Pa. We are not DIY'ers. Chandler did call but we had no reception so waiting for a call back.

Have PL connected to our house power to charge and discovered we are not getting full electrical power. Checked house outlet and extension cord - all reading Ok. checked all fuses. If Batteries are dead on trailer shouldn't I still have full power when plugged in? Ugggh! Could the controller have gone bad?

Not sure about the power... guess your going to have to take it to a rv place and have them check the batteries with a meter. When mine die one day Im going back to a lower priced lead acid deep cycle battery with more then 55 amp hours. Do you have 1 battery or 2? Did Chandler ever contact you about boxes to vent your batteries? He still hasn't gotten back to me. Im gonna give him till next week with the holiday and all.

Use a better brand of tape as glue residue can be an issue with the cheap stuff. I've used 3M and Ace brands, left on for several weeks with minimal residue. Good luck, Raz

Full electrical power doesn't exist, it is either on or off. While plugged in to 120v your interior outlets, microwave and a/c should operate and your battery should get charged from your converter. Which item is not operating as it should.\?
