  1. I have a Itasca meridian v 39'ft. I have a leak on the hydraulic system. I have call the dealer. What I don't understand is the hydraulic fluid is mounted on the front right side of the RV on a piece of what looks like a piece of plywood. I believe this is a big problem . when the weather is raining or snow it will wrought out after a while and fall off. SHOULDN'T THIS BE A STEEL PLATE OR ALLUMIM PLATE.

  2. Thank you so much for contacting us. However, in matters such as this, which could be serious, we advise you to please contact customer relations at Winnebago directly. They can be reached at 800-537-1885.
