That is excellent. We love it for our crew when the kids and spouses come along.

Most of the items were very minor like crooked or not adjusted at the factory installation (toilet seat, skylight cover, etc.). They did realign and adjust two of the slides so they closed completely and evenly. The black tank flush connection line was twisted so little water went through it, etc. Just new build stuff that obviously was never tested. We had them add valves on all of the rear drains since Coachmen does not (but no charge). They gave us another final sewer/water valve because the grey tank final run is ten feet long and some minor grey water can build up behind the cap without it on the 312s after they are drained traveling. One LED light strip had a break so the entire thing didn't work.

I put the truck on cruise control at 64, tow/hall in the hills and punch on the exhaust brake. Never shifts down and I don't touch a pedal going up or coming down unless it's a slower corner. Tow hall and exhaust brake don't let truck go over 65 so no worries about over speeding the tires either. Didn't know towing could be so effortless!

I bet the results are mixed at best on that. ;-)
