New 2017 Forester 3051 Owner!
We are extremely excited to move up from our old travel trailer up to the class C motorhome. We have had it three months and absolutely LOVE it! So far we have been on about six trips both big (Disney, Florida panhandle) and close to home in the Georgia state parks. There are a few concerns I wanted to check and see if anyone had input. I know the rv is still under warranty but we had to buy up in SC and I would prefer to fix small items myself if easily resolved rather than going up two times to pick up and deliver:
1. When driving in heavy rain a small amount of water seems to come in under the slide right under the dinette area. I assume it's from water coming up from the road but don't see any obvious gaps.
2. We have a great set up on the TOAD but the Jeep seems to wiggle slightly behind the camper on the expressway. It's not crazy bad but annoying. We had the Hellwig front and rear sway bars put on, an alignment done and a Safe T Steer added and it still seemed to exist. I just purchased the Blue ox hitch stabilizer to see if that helps but have not installed it yet.
3. The A/C seems to act a bit odd. For example, while traveling home from Florida it would cut off for maybe 15 seconds and come right back on. It cooled the entire way as it should but it seems that this would wear on the A/C unit, or is it normal? (BTW when in Florida it was EXTREMELY hot and the guy at camping world suggested these foam plugs to go up in the roof vents to block the heat, they worked GREAT!)
Anyway, I thought I would check here before scheduling a warranty visit to make sure these issues weren't user error or normal. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Also, here is a photo of the clean up before the Florida trip, again, LOVE this RV!
