Pantry Fell out of it's housing!! No Brakes!

Brand new rig...3rd time out...boy did we have problems. Started with the Pantry...whole thing fell out of it's housing..broke all the drawer slides...we have a 24TBss..the pantry was not over-loaded...they never put the locking pin in to keep this from happening.

Same Day...stopped along the way to our destination and wanted to fix something for lunch. Refrigerator panel was on the floor! Looks like it had fallen off before...small bead of glue holding it in place.

Then we found out the brakes were bad...some of the wiring was not even hooked up!!

Could anything else go wrong on this 2-week vacation?!? Well, sure enough...the door lock jammed and we were unable to get back inside our trailer.

The thermostat on the water heater was faulty as well!!

Phew...not a good start. Luckily we are not newbies to this RV Lifestyle...we actually live full time in a 5th wheel...and have had our problems with it as well.

Check your pantry and make sure you have the locking pin - several in the dealer's lot were missing them as well.
