Shattered underbelly

We had a very long and cold winter here in Alberta and upon inspection of our 2014 Rushmore I found that the polycarbonate underbelly covering was ripped apart, due to the weather according to our dealer. As it appears to have started from the bolts holding the panel to the bottom of our Rushmore we are being told that even the extended warranty wonít cover it. The cold was so intense this year that the polycarbonate contracted until it ripped apart.

I will crawl under the unit this weekend and Gorilla tape all the splits and hope for the best but I wanted to let others in cold climate areas know to check the underbelly covering for cracking and splits. I will not attempt to replace the covering with 4x8 panels of polycarbonate because the original is one continuous piece as far as Iíve seen and there is no way to join smaller panels along their length since the trailer is all metal framing.

Just some info for you owners!

Can be complicated, but gorilla tape is a good start.

And heat the Gorilla tape with a heat gun to set it permanently.
