Thanks I should have it out of paint shop today and back to the dealer for the last of the warranty work "I HOPE" do the Cilajet Wax job on Friday and back into our hands Friday night. So I will post more of the completed pics this weekend.

Here are some of the odd flaws that were on the left side of the slide wall and main wall of my 365 from the factory. My dealer sent Heartland some pictures of it one day when they had it in there for warranty work. When I went to pick it up they told me that Heartland wanted to fix it ASAP. We are not sure what made the hexagon marks but they found 4 of them and a few big circles all on the same side. Anyone have any idea's of what there from ? and if I could figure out how Jim makes the red circles on his pictures I could help you find them in my pics.

That almost looks like someone left tape on the side wall by accident then removed it afterwards leaving the raised sections

Wild guess: hex marks left by the clamps used to move the walls around. Of course that raises the question of why they would leave marks.

Ya and why they aren't on everyone's walls ? He said after sanding it down it looked like they had cut out the holes for some reason and put plug pieces in them. and then forgot to sand them down before it went to paint.

That looks great. Gives it a much 'richer' look. Much like the higher end Motor Homes. Would like to see that as a standard feature on the Landmark 365 full body paint and only on the Landmark which would designate it as a high end coach. Are you listening Tom?

Thanks ... I agree they should, and it would have been alot easier and cheaper to do it all at once at the factory. I ask the shop to give me a quote. He looked at it and said $1500 to $2000... I said ok. This was there first time doing stripes on the slide outs so I think it ended up being a bit more work then he estimated. They do a ton of RV repairs and paint work for Manteca Trailer so it put my trust in them. Turned out pretty good.

Very nice! I love the painted slides and have thought for long time that full body paint should be fully painted! I understand that it costs extra but at least make it an option. If we want our unit "finished out" and can afford the extra cost, let us do it. It is easier and probably cheaper to have it done at the paint shop.

Yes ... That would be an option I would pay for. Make it a forced option LOL.

Installed the new and improved Trail-air pin box. I had my tarp shop make a custom cover for it to protect it from the sun when its parked. My last one had a lot of cracks in the air bag after about 6 or 7 years.

Quick and easy Mod.
I installed a sliding window lock on my tri-slide shower door to hold the first door in place. So now you only have to pull the 1 door closed when you get into the shower.
