2016 XLR Thunderbolt

Anybody out there already purchased a XLR Thunderbolt with issue's?

I just purchased a 2016 XLR Thunderbolt 340AMP. Bought it on June 5, picked up two weeks later. I brought it home for two weeks loading all stuff from the old camper. Then we went to White Lake, NC. I was excited but ended with disappointment. Upon arrival my six way leveling sytem did not work and had to manually level using my eye balls, had a couple of cabnets that touched and squeeked, the tv did not allow the DVD to be seen, my fould out table was bowed, and on the last day of of a five day trip the black water tank did not spray or clean tanks as suppose to. I brought it home for a about 5 days before carring it back to the Dealer for work. Of course they kept it for 5 weeks. I just go it back this past Saturdy. Did I buy a nightmare. My question today are there any Others issue's that i might encounter???????????????????????? I'm so nervous. Did I buy a lemon. I know you have issues with campers but having these many before you even have time to use it.

No you didn't buy a Lemmon, It's probably your dealer , they all suck,, call XLR warranty and speak to Diane and she'll set it straight . We had our unit at the factory today . Extremely happy with their service

Your list of items is about a day or two worth of work for any dealer tech. I've seen ten times that accomplished in just a few hours from the factory techs at the Goshen rally this past week. Your dealer is working you over and your rig is sitting with excuses of "can't get parts", "waiting on approval", etc. they either don't know how to fix it or don't have time to fix it because they're too busy getting new units ready for delivery. Would never let my rig sit on a dealers lot for something that really would impede me using it.
