I’m still talking/emailing Keystone. Whenever I get finished, I cannot wait to post the emails that I have received from Keystone. They literally think we are ignorant. Anyway, I’ll let you know. But we are really wanting ours back from the dealer soon.

I know what you mean. I haven't gotten the same answer twice. No definitive outline as to the answers given. I don't know who was the worst. Keystone or my dealership. It is actually hillarius to go back through the emails and compare them all.
The sun still comes up so there is still hope.

To the poster that said just accept keystones fix, I suppose you would accept ford/gm/dodges fix of a drip pan under your trucks leaky sun roof ? It will dry up when the truck temps reach 140 deg in the summer heat.

Not a chance in the world !!!

the explanation says that the gear box is filled with too much grease.
once overflow has dripped out it will not drip further.
meaning its not supposed to run dry by dripping out overflow.

Has anyone thought of going to their local news media? I live in the Tampa Metro media market and all the major TV channels have investigative reporters. It is clear that Keystone is still selling these units with defective slide motors. Maybe if we apply some media heat they will do the right thing. If anyone is interested in going with me to the media, please pm me.

Hello everyone. My first post. Vary happy I ran across this discussion about the leaking gear boxes! I have an 18 month old 2018 370BR Montana High Country, and inspected the gear boxes for the slides after reading about all of the problems. When I did the inspection I found 3 out of 4 boxes were indeed leaking and there were 3 inch bubbles on the slide out roof caused by leaking gear oil. I took it to our dealer and was informed that they will try to get Keystone to provide the drip trays at no cost however the roof will need to be patched, at my expense since I am 6 months out of warranty. Are there any new developments from Keystone regarding this?

Donutmkr .... Definitely do the drip pans, BUT don’t get excited over the roof patch job. The roof membrane manufacture is saying the oil will not cause damage to membrane. It just bubbles it. Long story short, clean all oil residue off, slowly, lightly heat membrane with hair dryer, be careful, smooth bubbles out. They say roof will go back close to normal. There is a video on this, but I forget where it is at. So far, mine looks good. AND, the main thing is, no hole in my roof that was patched, and will even more depreciate the trade in value even more. Keep researching, and never give up. I’ll better hush before words start flying on the name Thor. Good luck.

I beg to differ. Anything made with petroleum distillates WILL destroy a EPDM roof over time. This is the reason why you have to be careful what you seal/ clean/caulk the EPDM roof with. The bubbling of the EPDM is trying to tell you something. IT DOES NOT LIKE IT !!!!

beeje... I agree with you 100% ! I’m assuming that since everyone on here is catching the mess in time, the membrane hasn’t had time to dissolve all the way thru. But, then again, the advice comes from Keystone and the membrane manufacturer. Go figure. But, so far, mine are looking good.

It may be too early to tell if you use the hair dryer method for repair that the roof is not damaged. The affected portion of the roof may age faster.
