I’m in Kelowna and have a ‘74 Trillium
. I took it to one of the *major* and supposedly reputable RV dealers in Vernon 2 years ago to be have the front window checked for leaks
, as I had suddenly started getting gallons of water in the front compartment when it rained, and especially if I was pulling it in the rain.
They suggested resealing all the windows
, since they were 40 years old and had never been done as far as I knew, so I decided to splurge on the preventive maintenance. Long story short, I paid almost $600 ... and went from having a front window that possibly leaked, to having FOUR windows
that leaked like sieves! They refused to acknowledge any accountability at all, zero. So I was $600 out of pocket and forced to find someone else to fix the problem.
The real kicker was, after doing some research on this forum, I realized that my original leak was more likely at the bellyband, and not the front window at all. After talking to many of the RV places in the Okanagan, I took it to a *small guy* outfit and he managed to reseal the bellyband and windows
so I was leak free again
My lesson learned? Most of the big RV dealers have little interest and zero expertise working on our little old trailers. If anyone in the BC interior has found a decent and capable place to deal with, I’d be very happy to hear of it!
Feel free to PM me and I’d be happy to share names with you, good and bad.
