I also own a 2014 3051S, bought in Sept. Live in Pa. So did not get to use much in winter, but went out 2 weekends in Oct and Nov., then week at Memorial Day and 10 days end of June. Unit now at dealer for WARRANTY WORK. I did not buy used, brand new from dealer, and here is what is getting fixed in less then 10 months, less than 2,000 miles total road travel. It is just the wife and I and our 2 little dogs, so not a hard use situation.
Warranty list, coach door won't lock, large cabinet door under bathroom sink fell off threads stripped on hinges, bedroom closet door on right fell off, again poor installation with hinges, trash can lid on kitchen counter, edging came off, SLIDE WOULD NOT RETRACT, ( remember where control is you will need it), stabilizers leaking fluid metallic noise when retract, Jacknife sofa was not secured to floor ( thank god No sudden movement with passenger ), 3 compartment locks will not work cylinder just spins, radio system cycling on/off very quickly, even with rv off, ruined sub woofer.
Even with all these problems we still think we have the best class C out there, we love the room in kitchen, double door fridge with ice maker, the outdoor tv and radio, the room around the bed, the closet space in bedroom and I love the Ford E-450 Triton engine and the 7500 lb tow capacity. In 15 days we will close on our house and be 100% Full timers and I have faith that this rv will be a solid unit for us for many years to come. We are already making mods., ordered retro kit for slide out pantry, took out jacknife, was glad was not bolted for that, removing dinette and replacing with double recliner. Moving tv from overhead to hang below cabinets above jacknife location. Removing carpet and laying a wood floor.
Recliner going in before we hit road west and tv relocate will be same time.
So as I keep being told forget about all the warranty problems, Forest River is no different than any other company out there because the h have the same problems.
Have a great time exploring and enjoy your RV.
