TURBS,

I understand I am not under warranty and yes I got a great deal/steal the old owner used the HM twice no issues I take it home and a few miles later a bunch of issue. I not asking for these items to be covered under warranty if I did I would have not gone out and fixed them myself or purchased the parts myself. I just was looking for someone to own all the GREAT ISSUES this MH is offering, issues that should have Never left the manufacture in the first place. If this post helps an individual make a smart decision about purchasing a new or used MH than I did my job as a consumer and forum member and let others know what to watch out for or check before taking delivery.

Sounds like you want to bash the product more then educate? Or am I wrong?
All rv companies use the same products as what was installed in your unit.
So it's not just forest river .

For what it's worth you bought it used and have no idea how it was treated .
Some of the issues "electrical" are quite possibly installer error and isn't right.
Shoot my in laws just bought a brand new Durango Citron and have had it back 3 times now.
1) rear heated seat wire "pinched" from installation.
2) rear window defroster wire pinched via a screw.
3) intermittent sunroof issue.

TURBS,

I understand that a lot of companies use the same parts and products. There are also MH companies out there that research and understands proper installations. I don't think every MH should come with a electrical fire due to improper installations.
I am not trying to bash the product its just frustrations. The only thing for sure that I am bashing is my head into a wall wondering where is the QA? lol

I will also be posting DIY's to fix these I guess now are considered COMMON issues! lol

Buyers Remorse ... cant take it out on the seller so flame the product. Happens I guess when those "great deals/steals" go south. JMHO

So it's not just forest river. TURBS
X2, you bought it used, so you have no reason to bash FR. You need to bash the previous owner for selling it to you.

He may have a point if it is actually manufacturing issues. Doesn't matter if he purchased new or not. If it has issue related to poor manufacturing it is still a manufacturing issue.

We all know that for what ever reason, greed, lazy workers, etc that things are just not made as well as the used to be. Now, I am not bashing FR, I am bashing all manufacturing these days. I worked for a major bearing company for 38 years and I can tell you the workers today just don't care and the company only cares about one thing, $$$$. Maybe that is why the workers don't care.

It did not used to be this way. Employees were loyal to the company and proud of doing a good job, not any more. The company payed good wages and benefits and treated the employees pretty good, not any more. At least where I worked. A vicious circle maybe.

Another thought is, an 80 grand MH is low end and it is going to have cheaper materials, appliances, etc and you get what you pay for.
