We have the same unit except I haven't put the miles on it yet. You know it is fully covered by warranty...except the wait at the dealer is forever. Give them the headache when you go with a list. I haven't noticed the bouncing but it would disturb me a lot. That sounds like a ridiculous response from FR.

I've noticed mine moving slightly but I've also sat on the thing on numerous occcasions when I installed the power visors and it was fine holding my 235 at the time. My biggest issue with the dash is the fact that most of the flex AC ducts had to be strapped up. I shortened 2 of them by more than 18". They were laying on the floor after the ride home. I wish they had some type of cover for the underside of the dash. No matter what I've done there always seems to be a wiring harness or something else hanging down.

I had the dash issue you have and the dealer repaired it with two stripes of wood and two screws with colliers just right and left of vents. It was covered by Forest River. I have the 378xl 2013 and really like it, not million dollar rig, but happy with the performance and misc issues (all taken care of by dealer at no charge).

Would you mind taking a picture of the mod so I and others may want to do it.
Thanks
