We are loving our 351DS that we've only had a couple months. If you get the Low Voltage warning on the leveling jacks just give it a little gas and get the RPMs up to about 1,000 and that seems to do the trick.

Thanks for the responses. I picked the unit up a few days ago in Oklahoma City and driving it back to The Atlanta area, currently in Memphis. I appreciate the tips. I spent just at 5 hrs going over the unit with the tech. I found some minor issues they fixed on the spot but nothing major. The roads in Oklahoma are terrible so I didn't get a chance to see this on the drive until I got out on smooth interstate, about 3-400 miles. I noticed it pulls hard to the right as if it needs an alignment.
Sbryant-how did you get your alignment covered under warranty?

I did notice with the large front window that every bug from a 1/2 mile away is attracted to come there to die. Most of the big travel centers have the large extended window scrubbers but some only have the small car ones. Do you have your own you cary? If so, what type?

I will say being a first timer Motor Home driver the thing is a little intimidating when maneuvering into gas stations etc. it took me a few hundred miles to get comfortable.

Thanks
Mr. G

You need to call Georgetown warranty as soon as you get home and tell them the front end needs to be realigned. My rep is Kevin Stratton. I call him, and he calls me back the next day. He should give you the approval right on the phone. You'll have to find a vendor to do the work and pay for it then submit the invoice to them. They will send you a check to pay you back. Where are you in Alabama?

Oh I see you're in Atlanta. You shouldn't have any problem finding a vendor.

That is the best quote ever, and I TOTALLY agree. We bought our own extendable scrubber to use when it gets bad. Amazon.com is a great place to find one. We have this one, but there are multiple others. The rubber part isn't awesome (I think it's more a factor of the angle and pressure once you extend the handle) but the bug scrubber is good.

Amazon.com: Mr. LongArm 8936 3'-6' Extension Bug Squeegee with Pole: Automotive

Sounds like you are having a good time so far!!!!

so far on the front end alignment I'm being told they will find a Ford dealership in the area to do an alignment. I'll keep my fingers crossed on see how it goes. So far the dealership has been outstanding at answering questions & looking into warranty issues for me…


I washed it for the first time today, no wax yet…. just ordered. But I hand dried it.. WOW…it's big alloy of up & down the ladder… My wife thought I was crazy but no water spots….

The front end alignment is right on, and don't forget the CHF (Cheap Handling fix). Find the thread on this site and do it right away. You will find significant handling improvement and you will be more relaxed at the end of the day of driving.

Happy Trails, Forrest
