Fingers Crossed

We have a 2016 Forester 3011 DS on the Ford E450 chassis with about 9,400 miles so far which we bought new in 2016. About a month after we bought it the problems started. Mostly just annoying quality control issues which were covered under warranty or under the extended warranty we have. However, the latest problem, a dime size hole in the exhaust pipe was not covered.
Fingers crossed the RV is now in better shape than the day we bought it. My DW and I are going to be taking our longest trip yet at the end on May. (Long trip for us, though not so much for more seasoned RVers) We are driving from North Carolina up to Faribault MN for my 50th HS class reunion then over to Mackinaw and work our way back to NC. The trip will be a little over 3,000 miles. Driving a small house on wheels anything can happen. I feel we are ready and fingers crossed nothing pops up at the last minute like it did last summer.
Happy RVing and hope everyone has GREAT times and wonderful memories this summer.

A dime size hole in vehicle exhaust or generator exhaust?

Best wishes for safe travels and smooth roads. We have actually stayed at the park in Faribault, enjoyed the Amana, saw the cave and spent lots of $$$ at the mall.

Hanger removal was done by the company that does the frame mods to make them longer. FR received it that way.
