I have had everything from a tent trailer to a 40ft Country Coach and all the manufactures are about the same ,no quality control. It's to bad the RV industry don't have a foreign competitor as the US car manufactures did a few years back that made them shape up.

Sounds like a dealer who doesn't have their stuff together.

My dealer showed me a couple units right when they receive them. Broken or smashed in cabinet doors, trim falling off, you name it. They keep a store room full of trim, cabinet doors, various stains for matching said cabinets, faucets, sinks, battery boxes, vent covers, lights, etc...

We've never had trouble with units from them. Always the same employees, from service to sales to finance. Family owned. I'll stick with them then choose my brand.

I'd suggest, if it's possible, to find a new dealer. While there are lots of bad dealers, there are also lots of good dealers. If you find one, hang on to them.

I buy the 2yr factory warranty. Then I fix everything I can and make a list of things that the dealer needs to repair. When the winter months come I schedule a time and take it back to the dealer for the warranty work. By the time the 2yr warranty is up the trailer has been in twice, I haven't missed any camping and the repair issues have been resolved. My current trailer has some buckles in the siding on the driver side and will be going in for that this winter.

Just got a 2860 (31foot C)
First trip canceled do to a water leak at the pump
Averted second cancelation yesterday when I discovered faulty Gas regulator leaked all the propane out
First trip on Wed 13th keeping my fingers crossed
Yes all new products are going to have problems
I know this from experience
Where the stress is relieved is in dealing with a sympathetic dealer that will work with you and not blow you off.
I believe we have this going for us
They fixed both problems immediately.

I would be most concerned about the flood you had in the RV. Water is horrible to RV's and if you experienced a rupture in the water tank and flooded the RV with 4-5 gallon of water before you discovered it was leaking, you could have a major problem in a couple years with floor rot.

I am not sure what type of recourse someone has in your situation but water damage is never good. Not only that, once the tank ruptured and then the ice began to melt, did it leak into the RV and stay there for a while before anyone saw it to mop it up? The wood could have been wet for a while since you noticed it.

I wish you the best.

Vin.

Im not sure if you we replying to me or the original tread starter but anyway, No flood in the RV.
The pump is located low back right and acsessed through a door within one of the cargo bays along with the water filter.The drip was coming from the setiment filter cup not having a good edge for a seal.
Bay got wet but its lined with plastic shell and mopped right up.
So I think we are good but others should check this filter.
For new folks its a small clear plastic cup the size of a shot glass and it houses a screen filter right at your electric water pump.
