I had some fixes done by Thor without problems, but there certainly are more people and processes between the RV owner and the manufacturer than with Escape Trailer industries. I would have preferred to deal with Reace and Tammy.

Taking my trailer in to Escape in Oct to get it done and a couple of other things then will meet up with my horse and a few friends and with the Frazer valley hunt club and go hunting with them. We don't really kill any foxes these are both drag hunts we take the hounds out and chaise the scent of a fox - just fun to go for a gallop in the woods and drink a cup or two...

Off topic, but Parker, what kind of rocket scientist are you? Terry's a rocket scientist too. And on topic, honestly I don't think it's out of line to ask about why this started.

Well you can ask but no one has come forward that has had a problem. Just saying.

Cheers

Ruthe, I was actually in high-speed air-breathing propulsion, where we often competed with rockets but also relied on them for getting our engines up to speed. 'Nuff about that, I guess. Would be fun to meet Terry sometime.

Doug, I'm not sure what you're just saying, other than maybe suggesting that no-one has really had a failure, but maybe this is one of the many things that might keep Reace awake at night and he decided to do something about it before there was a failure. I certainly respect that.

Getting back to the subject, here is a photo of the joint on my 2011 17B. Looks like they didn't do any grinding after the weld. I'll add another post tomorrow after the mending plates are welded in place.

It is something I could do myself if I still had access to the equipment (one of the few disadvantages of retirement), however I'm taking it to Universal Metal Works, the closest full service fabrication shop in the area.

And here is the "After" photo. 1/2 hour with no minimum charge - $34.00 + 8% sales tax for a total of $36.72. They even painted it...

Nice job, good price, and peace of mind.
