1 yr anniversary today with 2014 400bh

The factory warranty is up and I have about 10k on the odometer.

Issues had and fixes under warranty

1) bunk house slide motor replaced.
2) minor various wood trim replaced
3) hydraulic system pump and manifold replaced.
4) molding around dinette replaced that was broken by dealer while fixing the hydraulic slide and jack system. They put the slide braces on the trim and and when the faulty hydraulic system pushed the slide out it broke all the trim.

Other than those issues I have had a great experience with my berk and would buy it again in a second. Hopefully all the bugs are worked out now and with just have many more years of happiness with it.

Not a bad list at all. I had the bunk slide motor break on mine also. So have a few other members. Glad you're happy with it.

I also had bunk slide cables break. Didn't realize the back door on top in bedroom popped open after driving and stopped the slide from opening and busted cables. Expensive lesson learned on my 2011 BH

Glenn,
We must have bought ours at the same time. I'm also finishing my first year with factory warranty. I had the bunk slide motor issue as well, my compressor went out on the residential fridge, alignment covered by freight liner, new wiring harness for running lights & had a jack replaced that was leaking during our initial walk through.

Overall, I am very happy with the quality of the Berk and we are looking forward to a busy year with plenty of camping trips on the books. - The only thing I could put back on Forest River would be to proactively replace the defective motors on our bunks before we all had them go down while in use.

Trying to decide by tomorrow between a brand new 2014 400bh with all the upgrades and 360 hp and a used 2014 390bh 340 hp with about 12,000 miles with a 2014 jeep included for the same price?

New one through a dealer, used one private..

Tough decision there.

Wow. Either motor is big enough. I wouldn't worry there. The 12,000 mile really no issue. A 2014 still on dealer lot should be quite a bargain I'd guess. So do you have a toad now?? And how bad do you want a jeep??

Real tough one. What model jeep is it? 4 door or 2 door? does it have a good tow bar and brake system with it?

I have the 14 because I like the interior upgrades better but I also know how much the a jeep 4door rubicon cost.

I hope my 14 400bh didn't depreciate that much in one year.
