We have a 2007 Presidential Suite. We have a terrible issue with road grime entering the RV when we travel. It comes in through the bottom of the slides. The walls, furniture, carpet and any white plastic in the upper and lower cupboards get coated with a fine black greasy dust. We contacted Monaco through our warranty person and we were told that although Monaco is aware of the problem, they have no solution. We stuff cloths and towels is the corners of the slideouts inside the unit before we travel but we still get a huge amount of black grime on the items listed above.

We are wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem and what has been done to solve the problem.

We have a 2003 Presidential that has always had the same horrible problem. We drive a diesel and you should see the white leather recliners in this RV! We stuff rags in the corners as well. We've had the slides worked on to get them to seal better when they are in and it helped a little but not enough. Now, we have an even worse problem though, the galley slide assembly is bent and mangled. We have no idea how this happened. It just made a horrible noise when we tried to run it in and now will not work. Monaco is not responding with part numbers and is no help whatsoever. We are on a trip and had the RV in a shop for 3 days trying to get part numbers. They were unable to find any part numbers and could not get a response from Monaco. We are going to trade this thing in and will NEVER buy another HR product!

I believe that Monaco has gone under. There shouldn't be anything else from them.
